Twitter will allow its employee to work from home permanently. The announcement comes after CEO Jack Dorsey sent out a company-wide message addressing his employees of the new policy.
A spokesperson for the company confirmed the news with Tech Crunch in an email, that said: “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. 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. “
According to The Guardian, the social media platform has suspended almost all employee business travel and all of its in-person events until 2021. It is also giving employees increased allowances to buy home office supplies including desks and desk chairs.
The news comes in after Facebook and Google extended its work from home policies into 2021.
