Google Allows Employees To Work From Home Until The Summer Of 2021

The American Corporation Google has decided to leave the possibility for employees to continue working remotely if they wish until at least July 2021.

"So that employees can plan for the future, we are extending the opportunity to volunteer from home until June 30, 2021, for those positions that do not require a stay in the office," CEO Sundar Pichai said in an address to employees.

"I hope that this way, you will have a flexible framework that is necessary to maintain a balance between work and taking care of yourself and your loved ones in the coming year," he said.

Pichai also said that more than 40 Google offices around the world have resumed their work.

Initially, the company stated that its employees would work remotely until the end of 2020.

During the pandemic, more than 16.4 million cases of coronavirus infection were recorded in the world, and about 650 thousand people died. Another 10 million people recover.
