Microsoft to Make Work From Home Permanent for Employees

Business Headlines Technology U.S.

Microsoft has announced working from home for employees will be a permanent option going forward, with manager approval.

The tech giant is following the lead of other companies such as Facebook and Twitter that have also said made working remotely a permanent option.

The policy shifts have been prompted by the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

Some roles will still require on-site work, such as those needing to access hardware. But many employees will also be able to work from home part-time, without needing any formal approval.

“Our goal is to evolve the way we work over time with intention—guided by employee input, data, and our commitment to support individual work styles and business needs while living our culture,” a company spokesperson said.
