Twitter employees working from home will be able to do so forever, as the company has no plans to require them to come back to the office.
Twitter was one of the first companies to allow its employees to work from home as the coronavirus pandemic began spreading in the US. Now the company is willing to let employees whose jobs are compatible with telecommuting to continue to do so indefinitely.
“We were uniquely positioned to respond quickly and allow folks to work from home given our emphasis on decentralization and supporting a distributed workforce capable of working from anywhere,” reads the company blog post. “The past few months have proven we can make that work. So if our employees are in a role and situation that enables them to work from home and they want to continue to do so forever, we will make that happen. If not, our offices will be their warm and welcoming selves, with some additional precautions, when we feel it’s safe to return.”
Experts have been saying the pandemic could forever alter how the workplace looks and functions, with an emphasis on working from home where possible. It appears Twitter is bravely embracing this new world, and its employees will likely appreciate it.
Here’s to hoping more companies follow Twitter’s lead.
