Facebook to embrace remote work in post-pandemic shift

Mark Zuckerberg Is

The company, one of Silicon Valley's biggest employers, is giving US staffers who are approved to work remotely until January 1, 2021 to update the company on where they plan to base themselves, at which point their salaries will be adjusted to reflect the local cost of living.

Afraid not, Zuckerberg said, addressing employees in a publicly broadcast livestream on his Facebook page.

"We need to do this in a way that's thoughtful and responsible, so we're going to do this in a measured way".

Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg said Thursday that he anticipates up to half of the company's employees could be working their jobs remotely within the next five to 10 years.

Approximately 95% of Facebook's workforce are now doing their jobs remotely due to the coronavirus pandemic, and employees have previously been told they can work from their home for the rest of of they year if they can do so productively, Mr.

The company also sees benefits in hiring.

The push to let existing employees work remotely on a permanent-basis will roll out in phases in the coming years.

If the experiment is successful, Facebook's move could prompt other tech giants to compete for engineering talent by embracing remote work - and other states to compete for Californians.

Zuckerberg also addressed the criticism that he has too much control over Facebook despite owning a fairly small percentage of the company. For accounting and tax reasons, the executive said employee pay could be adjusted in cases where employees change locations.

"Culture is built very carefully over time", he said. It is really important to take a long-term approach to how we think about remote work.

Several tech firms have since announced that they will allow employees to permanently work remotely after the pandemic, including both Twitter and Square, among others.

The reopening of offices is a contentious issue but at the end of the day some companies might have to reopen offices in order to get work done because of the fact that an extended work from home situation could result in losses in the long run.

Zuckerberg outlined the criteria for permanent remote work status, including experience and strong recent performance, belonging to a team that supports remote work and approval from a group leader. He also pointed out the shift to remote work would enable Facebook to better hold on to staff members who wish to move out of Silicon Valley.

As of 2018, the median employee compensation at Facebook was more than $240,000 a year.
