Twitter chief Parag Agrawal announced in a series of tweets on Friday that the social networking company will reopen its global offices this month, allowing people to work remotely if they wish, as many companies had closed their offices. following the spread of Covid-19.
Advocating for a return to the office as it fuels a vibrant corporate culture, Agrawal said business travel is back with immediate effect and all global Twitter offices will open from March 15, noting that ” decisions about where you work, whether you feel safe business trips and what events you attend should be up to you.”
The Twitter CEO told employees to work where they feel most productive and creative, adding that “includes working from home full-time forever.” Emphasizing that those who choose to continue working remotely should “learn and adapt” given that “distributed working can be much more difficult.”
As the world grappled with the Covid-19 pandemic, returning to the offices seemed highly unlikely. However, now that the situation is stabilizing, Google is also preparing to return employees to its Silicon Valley offices in early April, in the hope that they will only work from home a few days a week.
Tech company campuses were abandoned at the start of the pandemic as the spread of Covid-19 caused a societal shift towards remote working. Google plans this month to help employees adjust to “hybrid” schedules combining remote and office work, according to US media.
