On Monday, CEO Sundas Pichai announced the following in an internal release: ‘To give employees the ability to plan ahead, we are extending our global home-based volunteer option until June 30, 2021, for positions that do not need to be in the office‘.

It is estimated that some 200,000 employees will ‘take advantage’ of this extension to date; an update that has affected companies such as @twitter, which already allows its employees to work from home indefinitely.
