Today’s Solutions: June 16, 2024

As companies around the world are encouraging their employees to work from home to prioritize the health and safety of their workforce and communities amid coronavirus, some businesses are considering making working from home a permanent option for their employees. Just this week, we shared a story about Nationwide, the Fortune 100 insurance company that is shifting nearly all of its operations online.

In that same vein, Twitter has followed suit to be among one of the first to implement such changes to its work culture. Jack Dorsey, the tech giant’s CEO, notified its employees that, once the coronavirus pandemic ends, the choice will be theirs whether to return back to the office or continue working from home.

“The past few months have proven we can make that work,” a company spokesperson said. “So if our employees are in a role and situation that enables them to work from home and they want to continue to do so forever, we will make that happen. If not, our offices will be their warm and welcoming selves, with some additional precautions, when we feel it’s safe to return.”
