Google extends return-to-office policy to January

Alphabet-owned Google is extending its voluntary return-to-office policy through January next year, CEO Sundar Pichai said on Tuesday.
Google developers“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.
