COVID19: Twitter staff can now work from home forever – CEO Jack Dorsey

IT News Nigeria:

Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter announced today via a mail to staff that they can now continue working from home as long as they see fit.

Dorsey noted that the social media giant was an early adopter of a work-from-home model, adding, though that push has been accelerated by COVID-19 stay at home orders.

Twitter told TechCrunch: “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. 

Twitter also said the company is also outlining its plans to resume in-person working arrangements and meetings for those who prefer that arrangement.

Chief HR Officer Jennifer Christie lays out Twitter’s plans thusly:

  • Opening offices will be our decision, when and if our employees come back, will be theirs. 

  • With very few exceptions, offices won’t open before September. When we do decide to open offices, it also won’t be a snap back to the way it was before. It will be careful, intentional, office by office and gradual. 

  • There will also be no business travel before September, with very few exceptions, and no in-person company events for the rest of 2020. We will assess 2021 events later this year.
