Facebook reportedly allowing staffers to work remotely for remainder of 2020

Facebook is extending its work from home policy through the end of 2020, according to a report.

CNBC first reported that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg would allow most employees to continue working remotely amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The announcement, which is expected Thursday, would enable workers for the social media giant to continue to work at home. The company will begin opening most of its offices on July 6, according to the report.

How workers will be reintroduced to the office after the coronavirus crisis should be interesting. More and more companies are starting to realize that work can be done effectively, which has been seen when most offices were closed around the country in March.

As are employees: a recent survey found that 63% of working Americans feel their job is doable at home, and 79% believe their workplace should allow them to work more frequently remotely after the pandemic.

The New York Times announced in a memo to employees that the earliest day they would ask employees to return to the New York offices will be on Sept. 8, or the Tuesday after Labor Day.
