Twitter To Reopen Offices — But They May Remain Empty
Twitter is to reopen all of its offices after their closure during the Covid-19 pandemic. However, the social media giant has said that its staff will never be forced to return to them.
Twitter’s offices will begin to reopen from 15 March, CEO Parag Agrawal announced in a tweet. However, he also said that employees will never be forced to return to Twitter’s newly opened offices after the company promised in October 2020 that it would allow remote working permanently.
“Wherever you feel most productive and creative is where you will work and that includes WFH full-time forever. Distributed working will be challenging. We’ll need to be proactive, intentional, learn, and adapt. Thank you to the team who has supported us every day.” Agrawal tweeted.
According to an analysis conducted by finder.com, 65% of workers said they would be more productive working from home than working from a traditional office. Meanwhile, 83% of employees said they feel they do not need an office to be productive, and 75% of employees said they will be more productive working from home due to fewer distractions.
