Nevertheless, Google, being the good company it is has decided to call Friday off-workday. The company is giving employees Friday day off to avoid burnout as the Covid-19 pandemic forces people to continue working from home.
Google claims that the move is for the “collective wellbeing” of both full-time employees as well as interns. The company’s move was revealed according to documents viewed by CNBC.
“We strongly encourage you to take this day off — and managers should actively support their team to reprioritize work commitments in order to do so,” the document claims.
Nevertheless as Google can’t let all employees take off day and let Google run on its own over the weekends it will ‘explore something similar,’ to ensure support and multiple other teams gets the benefit too.
Meanwhile, as the made it to the news employees of other companies, also wanted in, mentioning that a collective day for mental health and ‘a break’ is very important.
