Google delays office return, eyes going part-remote

Google has again extended the time many employees can work remotely amid the coronavirus pandemic, this time saying they can work from home until September.

The company is also testing a hybrid workplace model it may adopt once it’s safe to return to offices, with employees in company spaces for at least three “collaboration days” a week but otherwise remote, Google said Monday after the New York Times reported the work-from-home extension and pilot workplace plan.

The Mountain View digital-advertising giant confirmed that CEO Sundar Pichai told employees in a message that Google was testing whether the hybrid model would “lead to greater productivity, collaboration, and well-being.”

The message said that although no companies of similar size had gone to a fully hybrid model, a few were starting to test it.

Google in July said it would allow employees to work from home until June 2021, after earlier saying they could work remotely till the end of this year.
