Spotify to offer its Staff an option to work from home permanently.
Spotify has offices in 16 countries worldwide, had previously told employees that they would not be require to return to the office until the end of 2021.
Spotify’s 6,500 employees will be able to choose their geographic location, and whether they prefer to work primarily in the office or from home, the company wrote in a blog post.
“There’s no better time than now to transition into a distributed-first model a workplace that isn’t built on the premise that employees need to gather in an office with traditional desk setups,”.
Sonya Simmonds Spotify’s head of design and build Said :
“The move would not immediately impact Spotify’s existing footprint.
At this time, we have no plans to give up any of our existing real estate; instead, we are re-evaluating what our existing spaces can offer,”
“We will of course take into account that people working from home still will come into the office and that people might change their choice down the line.”
Google, Twitter and Facebook have extended their timeline for return to the office until fall of 2021 or later, but have not announce any permanent changes.
