The office is also running during the lockdown. People have worked sitting at home. People are getting used to a new normal life. Employees have gone from home office to office. But even then, some organizations are going to allow employees to work from home permanently. Technology company Microsoft is going to announce.
Bill Gates’ company is allowing workers to work permanently at home, considering the health risks in the event of a global epidemic of the deadly coronavirus. This was reported by AFP quoting a report in the US media The Verge. However, Microsoft has not yet announced anything about this.
The Verge reports that in the coming days, Microsoft will allow workers to work at home for safety and security. Microsoft employees are still working from home due to health risks. The software company will not open its office until next January. The staff will work from home. If future employees want to work permanently from home, Microsoft will give them that opportunity. In this case, the staff will work at home with the permission of the manager.
Kathleen Hogan, head of human resources at Microsoft, said: ‘Most workers are now working from home because of Corona. Other arrangements have been made for those who do technical laboratory and training work. The price of life is much higher. The Corona epidemic must take on the challenge of surviving anew. Now the new challenge is how we will continue to work in the future.
Kathleen said, “If employees are committed to their work and perform their duties properly, that is the benefit of the company. There is no need to force him. We want to be in a separate work style by ensuring our livelihood. I want to go ahead by maintaining the business of the company again.
Kathleen Hogan later said in a public blog post, ‘We are not promising employees to work from anywhere. Because we believe, the cost of employees staying together in the workplace is also different. ‘
If you do the home office, the staff will also get some incidental expenses. As of June this year, Microsoft has 1 lakh 83 thousand employees. Of these, 98,000 are in the United States alone.

And people have assumed that there is no hope of getting rid of the virus until the vaccine arrives. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. In this situation, most of the organizations including IT companies are walking the path of work from home. Google has allowed employees to work from home until June 30, 2021. One step further is the social media Twitter. The company has given its employees the benefit of working from home indefinitely. Facebook has made a similar announcement.
