Facebook will allow its employees who can perform their jobs remotely to continue telecommuting even after the pandemic ends, while it may reduce workers’ pay if they move to a less costly area, Bloomberg News reported.
Starting on June 15, any Facebook employee will have the option to continue working remotely, while the social-media company will be more flexible for those who are expected to return to the office, the news publication wrote, citing Facebook.
For those who choose to move to less expensive locations and potentially have their salaries adjusted accordingly, they also will be encouraged to work in offices at times “to encourage team building,” Bloomberg cited the company as saying.
“As part of my commitment to remote and hybrid work, I plan to spend as much as half of the next year working remotely,” CEO Mark Zuckerberg told employees, according to Bloomberg. “I’ve found that working remotely has given me more space for long-term thinking and helped me spend more time with my family, which has made me happier and more productive at work.”
