Lockdown is underway in most countries of the world to prevent corona infection. Corona infections and lockdowns have changed the world’s work culture. Most of the employees of government and non-government organizations are handling office work from home. Employees and executives associated with the organizations are currently handling important tasks from home with the help of conference calls and video conferencing.
No one can say when the unlock will happen, when the situation will be normal. The number of corona patients is increasing by leaps and bounds every day. The number of corona cases worldwide has already exceeded 17 million. The virus has killed so far 670,322 people . In this situation, Google extended the term ‘Work from Home’ to protect the safety of employees. Recently, the CEO of the company Sundar Pichai has announced this.
Google’s CEO said on Monday that until June 30, 2021, the company’s employees will be able to work from home. This instruction will apply to approximately 200K permanent and temporary employees of the company.
Most of Google’s employees have been working from home since March due to Corona. Apart from the various benefits of working from home to the office, the employees are also facing some difficulties. Last May, the company’s CEO Sundar Pichai announced an additional 1,000 USD allowance to encourage employees to work.
At that time, Sundar Pichai said, Google employees all over the world will be working from home this year So Google is giving 1000 USD to all the employees to buy and equip the necessary equipments like home office (useful table-chairs and other useful items). During this time, Google has taken steps to ensure that workers are protected from infection by extending the ‘Work from Home’ period.
