Microsoft to expand its work from home policy, make it permanent for some staff

Seattle-based technology giant Microsoft has decided to expand its work-from-home policy and make it permanent for some workers.The company has released the new “hybrid workplace” guidance that lays out how employees can have a more flexible remote work schedule and even relocate elsewhere in the country, while it continues to adjust to changing needs during the ongoing pandemic.Microsoft will allow employees to work from home freely for less than 50% of their working week, and managers will be able to approve permanent remote work.

“We will offer as much flexibility as possible to support individual work styles, while balancing business needs, and ensuring we live our culture,” Kathleen Hogan, Microsoft’s chief people officer, said in a post on the official Microsoft Blog.“To address this, we have provided guidance to employees to make informed decisions around scenarios that could include changes to their worksite, work location, and/or work hours once offices are open without any COVID-19 restrictions.
