“Beyond January 10, we will enable countries and locations to make determinations on when to end voluntary work-from-home based on local conditions, which vary greatly across our offices. To make sure everyone has ample time to plan, you’ll have a 30-day heads-up before you’re expected back in the office,” Pichai noted.

He added that all employees working from home should take this period to rest as the road ahead may be a little longer. “Finally, encouraging Googlers to rest and recharge during this time remains a big priority so we will plan two more global reset days next quarter: Oct 22 and Dec 17,” he explained.

The company adopted the work from home policy last year when the Covid pandemic devastated most places its offices are situated. Over time, several coronavirus vaccines have been approved for mass use, resulting in a much stable condition. However, the emergence of the mutated virus has complicated the issue with the number of new cases rising in most places.

To do our part, today we’re announcing that we’re providing 250,000 COVID-19 vaccinations to countries in need, helping fund pop-up vaccine sites in the U.S., and committing an additional $250 million in Ad Grants to connect people to accurate vaccine information,” the company explained earlier this year.
