LinkedIn updated its work policy and now will allow its 16,000 employees worldwide to work either entirely from home or in a hybrid arrangement, Reuters reported.
An employee’s ability to work in the flexible arrangement is dependent upon the nature of their work, considering some tasks can only be performed in-person, the news site said, citing Chief People Officer Teuila Hanson.
The company indicated last October that it expected employees to work from an office 50 percent of the time when COVID-19 pandemic restrictions lift, Reuters said.
“We anticipate that we’ll definitely see more remote employees than what we saw prior to the pandemic,” Hanson told Reuters in an interview.
Employees who move may have their pay adjusted based on their local economy, Greg Snapper, director of corporate communications, told Reuters.
LinkedIn offices are expected to open based on Covid-19 infection rates in each location, the Reuters report said.
