The ones who were asking to work from home during the initial stages of the pandemic are now wanting to head back to the office space. Why you may ask? Well, because for sure, working from home is no easy as it requires so much dedication and ability to explain things to co-workers without being with them in person. Tiring it is.
However, eyeing the pandemic we are living in, some big companies are not ready to compromise with their employees’ health and are ready to prolong work from home.
Earlier, Google and Facebook have extended work form home for its employees and now, Twitter has said that it will allow its employees to work from home forever.
“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 company said in a blogpost.
“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,” the blog post added.
Twitter has reportedly allowed its employees to work from home from March 2 and made it mandatory from March 11. The company has said that the ones who want to work from home can do so for an indefinite period of time while the ones who want to return to the office will have to wait till September.

How about, work from home when it fits you? Bring your computer to a land where the sun shines. Work your hours and spend the rest of the day on the beach. Dinner at restaurants all week ☀️— Glenn (@Glenn21132370) May 12, 2020
