Alphabet-owned Google is extending its voluntary return-to-office policy through January next year, CEO Sundar Pichai said on Tuesday.
“Beyond January 10, we will enable countries and locations to make determinations on when to end voluntary work-from-home based on local conditions,” Sundar Pichai said in an email to employees.
In the last few weeks, companies including Amazon.com and Lyft delayed their return-to-office timelines to 2022 for U.S. workers due to the pandemic.
Google had earlier delayed its return-to-office policy from September to October. Google was one of the first technology companies to ask its employees to work from home due to the Covid-19 health crisis.
