Is It Time to Go Back to the Office?

Google is giving its employees more flexibility to work from different locations or entirely from home, taking a more lenient policy as the Alphabet Inc. company prepares for a return to office life after the pandemic.

Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai outlined the plan to staff in a note Wednesday morning. The influential Silicon Valley giant, one of the first to send employees home in 2020, has slowly opened its offices, but said its employees can work remotely until September. Google has rearranged offices to create more features for what it calls a “hybrid” return to work.
