Twitter employees can work from home ‘forever’, if they want

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Tuesday told staff they could continue to work from home, even after the pandemic lockdowns are lifted, according to BuzzFeed.

Twitter was a pioneer in moving to a work at home paradigm once the pandemic hit, and in a statement, the company said it was "one of the first companies to go to a WFH model in the face of COVID-19, but [doesn't] anticipate being one of the first to return to offices". When and if our employees come back, will be theirs, ' a spokesperson for the company said. As March and April wore on, many states implemented stay-at-home orders that shuttered all non-essential businesses, effectively forcing anyone who could work from home to do so. The company has suspended all of its business travel until September, with few exceptions, and said in a statement that employees who wish to work through the office will have to wait until September when the offices plan to reopen.

The spokesperson added: "With very few exceptions, offices won't open before September". The company also says that opening its offices will be a careful, intentional, and gradual process and will be done keeping all safety measures in mind.

Twitter is "uniquely positioned to...allow folks to work from home given our emphasis on decentralization and supporting a distributed workforce capable of working from anywhere", Christie wrote.

Many others can simply continue to work remotely, Dorsey told them.

But perhaps the move taken on by the majority of tech companies in the age of the coronavirus signals a change in the way we define "work" and further blurs the line between "home" and "office". Twitter also announced it had upped its allowance for work-from-home supplies for staff to $1,000 (£815).
