Twitter Announces That Employees Will Be Able to Work From Home Indefinitely

Becoming one of the first companies to make the WFH structure permanent.

Social media company Twitter has just made the announcement that its employees may be able to work from home “forever,” if the nature of their work permits. Co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey sent out a company-wide message addressing Twitter’s employees, detailing the new policy:

“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. “

Despite the encouragement to remain working from home, Twitter is still looking to reopen its physical offices soon, for employees that are preferring to working from a physical work space. The company’s Chief HR Officer said that employees can decide by themselves when they wish to return, and that offices will not be open until September 2020, earliest. There will also not be any business travel or in-person company events for the rest of the year.

Twitter joins companies like Facebook and Google, maintaining working from home until the end of the year, in the light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. It remains to see if other companies will begin to follow suit. Watch this space as any updates surface.
