Facebook long-term remote work plan extended to all employees

Crypto looks like the dot-com space of the 1990s, and bitcoin may not survive it, says chief investment officer |  Currency news |  Financial and business news

Rival big tech firms Apple and Google have recently reversed pandemic working conditions, telling staff to return to the office in the coming months. Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg told staff he plans to spend up to half of 2022 working remotely.

Facebook will let all employees who can work away from the office do so after the Covid pandemic is over. The company has told employees “anyone whose role can be done remotely can request remote work”. He had previously said that half of the company’s 60,000 employees could be working from home within a decade.

Facebook’s offices are expected to open to full capacity in October, but employees without permission to work remotely will have to come in at least half the time. A Facebook executive, quoted by the Wall Street Journal, declined to say how many employees currently had permission to work from home, but said the company had approved about 90% of requests.

Contracted out The company told the BBC that its new remote work policies apply to Facebook employees only, and not subcontractors, who are widely used to carry out content moderation and other tasks. In November 2020, content moderators openly accused Facebook of forcing them back into the office.

At the time, the company said that the majority of its 15,000 global content reviewers had been working remotely, and would be able to do so for the duration of the pandemic. Mr Zuckerberg set out his own experience of remote working in a separate memo to staff. He said being out of the office had made him “happier and more productive at work, adding it had given him “more space for long-term thinking” and enabled him to “spend more time with my family”.
