Facebook employees may work from home permanently

Facebook Inc (FB.O) will permanently embrace remote work even after coronavirus lockdowns ease, Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said on Thursday, accelerating the tech sector’s geographic diversification away from its home in Silicon Valley, and by 2030 (if Facebook is still a thing), half of the employees may work from home.

Many companies have witnessed improved productivity with employees working from home during lockdown.

I’m down for it. It really doesn’t make sense to have people go into office buildings to do work if they don’t need too. For a lot of companies it would say thousands upon thousands of dollars in rent utilities and expenses to just have people work from home.
