Facebook offers permanent work-from-home for employees starting June 15

Facebook on Wednesday said it will give employees the option of sticking with remote work for the long term, which is beginning on June 15.

Facebook said they are plans to open most of its U.S. offices to at least 50% capacity by early September and reopen fully in October. Until the end of 2021, employees can work as many as 20 business days from another location away from their home area, the company said.

“We believe how we work is more important than where we work,” Facebook said while sharing an update to its remote work policy.

“We want to be the place where people can do the best work of their careers while ensuring a consistent experience for employees no matter where they're located.”

Facebook and other Silicon Valley firms shifted to remote work early in the pandemic, relying on the internet tools they create to get jobs done.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said last year that he believes remote workers could make up as much as 50% of the company’s workforce in the next five to 10 years.
