Considering the current global situation, almost all large organizations. Have given their employees the option of ‘work from home’ or work from a distance.
But now the world is getting used to this ‘new general’ rule. Different organizations are taking different ideas on how the work will be done.
Mark Zuckerberg, head of Facebook. The largest social networking giant. Said the company would at some point start accepting applications from employees to work permanently away.
Zuckerberg said: “We have already announced that workers will be able to continue working. At home, by the end of this year if they wish. However, if the Covid-19 situation does not improve, its term will be extended.
“In the long run, we’re going to accept requests to give workers the opportunity to work from home,”. Zuckerberg said in an interview with technology website The Verge.
It is a new culture. In this way, Facebook will be able to recruit talented employees from different regions. Across geographical boundaries.
This will be beneficial not only in terms of recruitment but also in terms of retaining staff. Because, many workers quit their jobs due to positional reasons.
Based on a survey of its employees, Zuckerberg said about 40 percent of the company’s employees are interested in working from home.
While many are worried about whether this new work practice at home is affecting workers’ productivity, Zuckerberg thinks it has been surprisingly positive for them.
The chief executive of Facebook said, ‘What has been positively surprising is that employees have been more productive than expected at home.
They did better than expected. Some people thought everything will fall apart. That didn’t happen. Many people say they are more productive than before. ‘
Zuckerberg said with his own example, ‘The idea of working more at home also applies to me. I must think, sitting at home I have worked for a long time. It’s more productive than I thought. ”
Despite the type of work he spends most of his time negotiating with business partners and government officials, Zuckerberg says he now plans to spend most of his time working remotely.
