Facebook will allow employees to work remotely after the pandemic, reaffirming a commitment the social-media company made last year, Business Insider reported.
Employees have been “really thriving” with remote work, which has persuaded Facebook to change its future work model, Brynn Harrington, vice president of Facebook’s human-resources team, told BBC news, according to the news publication.
At the same time, working from home has been challenging for some employees, she added.
“We have people juggling caregiving responsibilities, we have people living in small apartments with roommates, those people desperately want to get back into offices, and we’re working really hard to do that, as soon as it’s safe to open our offices,” Harrington said.
Facebook staff can apply to their managers for permanent remote work, the executive was cited as saying.
