Facebook Announces Permanent Work from Home Option for Employees

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced, on Thursday that the company would embrace the work from home culture. Permanent work from home options to many of its existing employees.

“Over the next 5-10 years, I think we could have 50% of our people working remotely. But we’re going to get there in a measured way. I think Facebook will be the most forward-leaning company on remote work at our scale. We’ve been working on a thoughtful and responsible plan to do this.”, wrote Zuckerberg on Facebook.

As part of this purpose, Facebook will concentrate on distant hiring. Zuckerberg says Facebook will hire experienced engineering within 4 hours of a city where there is a Facebook engineering office. This contains areas such as Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Portland, and San Diego. The company will also set up new hubs in Atlanta, Dallas, and Denver.

According to Zuckerberg, more than half of them are as productive as they were earlier than the coronavirus pandemic happened. He says about 40 % of the employees have the interest to pursue full-time distant work. Out of those employees, 75 % of them are keen to move to another place.

That stated, there’s a catch in the company’s work from the home scheme – salary. As CNBC reports, salaries will probably be adjusted primarily based on the price of dwelling within the worker’s space. “We’ll adjust salary to your location at that point. There’ll be severe ramifications for people who are not honest about this.”, he mentioned.

Facebook just isn’t the one company with distant work choices in place. Google announced earlier this month that the corporate will probably be providing a distant work choice for the remainder of 2020.
