Google has become the latest company to allow employees to work from home for the rest of the year, and promised to give them $1,000 to help.
In a blog post on Tuesday, CEO Sundar Pichai outlined the company’s policy, saying that the majority of Googlers will be able to work from home for the rest of the calendar year. For the small number of Googlers whose jobs require onsite work, they will be notified by June 10.
“Because we still expect that most Googlers will be largely working from home for the rest of this year, we’ll be giving each Googler an allowance of $1,000 USD, or the equivalent value in your country, to expense necessary equipment and office furniture,” writes Pichai.
In the meantime, the company expects long-term changes in how Googlers work, with more flexibility being the new status quo.
