Facebook plans to shift to work-from-home; lesser salary packages expected

Coronavirus Impact Facebook follows Twitter trail allows employees to work from home permanently

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook's chief executive, told workers during a staff meeting that was livestreamed on his Facebook page that within a decade as many as half of the company's more than 48,000 employees would work from home. Of those, many said that not having to commute offered them more time to work and more personal time, he said.

He also said he predicts that opening up more remote work positions will help improve employee retention and make it possible to bring on talented people who don't live near Facebook's offices and wouldn't have considered moving. Facebook said the disruption was only to viewers outside the company and Mr. Zuckerberg was almost done.

Compensation in these areas could well be lower than in the Bay Area, Zuckerberg acknowledged. Their salaries are going to be adjusted according to their new locations, as that will be necessary for accounts and taxes.

"That is obviously not true and so we took it down".

"Our priority is people who can't productively do their work from home - those who work on hardware, some of our content reviewers, data center technicians, and other specialized roles".

Facebook will begin by allowing new hires who are senior engineers to work remotely, and then allow current employees to apply for permission to work from home if they have positive performance reviews.

UK PM Johnson defends adviser who travelled with coronavirus symptoms
As of 9am on Friday 22 May, there are 1,898 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in County Durham, out of a population of around 530,000. Mr Cummings masterminded the 2016 Vote Leave campaign before being made Prime Minister Boris Johnson's chief political adviser.

Zuckerberg claimed he meant to safeguard Facebook workplace society formed on Silicon Valley schools, understood for lively, innovative ambiences, exquisite dishes as well as various other enjoyable advantages. This would give the company a chance to put its own products to the test and "eat our own dog food", he added. Zuckerberg believes a change like this could impact some of what he calls "the softer stuff", like social connections, group brainstorming and creativity.

"We don't know yet how much we are drafting off of culture, relationships, strategy and direction that have been developed up until this point. And later this year, we're adding a new shop tab in the navigation bar, so you can get to Instagram Shop in just one tap", the team says. "We don't know how hard it's going to be to evolve".

In March, the coronavirus lockdown forced companies to send employees home.

Since Facebook moved to Menlo Park in 2011, the city remains on relatively good terms with its hometown corporate giant and has in many instances benefited from donations, partnerships and agreements with Facebook. When Facebook reopens some of its offices in July, it plans to reduce occupancy to just 25% with other safety requirements for its employees before coming into the office. "And that varies by location, so we're going to continue that principle here", he said.

"By 2020 it is easier to move bytes than atoms, so I prefer our employees to teleport by video or virtual reality rather than being caught in traffic jams that pollute the environment", joked Zuckerberg.
