Google is extending its work-from-home mandate for employees until at least next July, according to the Wall Street Journal which cited sources familiar with the matter.
“To give employees the ability to plan ahead, we’ll be extending our global voluntary work from home option through June 30, 2021 for roles that don’t need to be in the office,” Google CEO Sundar Pichai wrote in a memo to employees seen by CNN. “I hope this will offer the flexibility you need to balance work with taking care of yourselves and your loved ones over the next 12 months.”
Previously, the tech giant had announced that its stay at home order would be effective until the end of the year.
