New Delhi: Chief executive officer of Twitter, Jack Dorsey shared some unprecedented news with his colleagues on May 12. He asked all of them to work from home (WFH) indefinitely.
The San Francisco-based company, with sites in Dublin and London, employs around 5,000 people and said that it was one of the first to adopt the work from home model early in March. The company in a blog post stated that “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.” Although, some jobs which require physical presence, in case of maintaining the severs will still require employees to come in.
In the e-mail, Dorsey stated that it is quite unlikely that Twitter would be able to open its offices before September and so business travels will be cancelled until then. They have also suspended all of its in-person events until 2021. They will later reassess the plans for 2021 by the end of this year. Twitter is also giving its employees a stipend of $1000 from home supplies.
