Twitter’s co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey came with an announcement that the company’s employees may remain to work from home “forever” if the nature of their job allows.
Shortly after Facebook and Google made the announcement they were extending their work-from-home policy, a spokesperson for Twitter subsequently confirmed Jack Dorsey’s statement with Tech Crunch in an email, reading: “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.”
In the meantime, Twitter is looking forward to reopening its offices for a number of employees that prefer to work that way, but all that from September at least, with business travels or in-person company events excluded for the rest of 2020,the company’s Chief HR Officer Jennifer Christie stated.
