Salesforce has become the latest company to extend its work from home (WFH) policy, allowing employees to do so through the rest of the year.
Virtually every major tech company has allowed, or even mandated, its employees to WFH during the coronavirus pandemic. In some cases, the result has been enlightening for many companies, showing how productive employees can be working from home. As a result, some companies have decided to allow employees to WFH forever, with Twitter being the most high-profile example.
While not allowing employees to work from home forever, Salesforce has decided to allow employees to WFH for the rest of the year.
“For us, the timing of when we bring employees back into our offices will be unique to each office—we’ll make those decisions on a city-by-city basis, in a way that’s consistent with local government guidelines and in line with the advice of our medical experts,” writes Amy Weaver, President & Chief Legal Officer.
“Regardless of whether their local office has reopened, Salesforce employees will have the option of continuing to work from home until the end of the year.”
While stopping short of Twitter, Salesforce’s decision is likely welcome news to its employees.
