The future of work at Google is flexibility. The majority of our employees still want to be on campus some of the time yet many would also enjoy the flexibility of working from home a couple days a week…— Sundar Pichai (@sundarpichai) May 6, 2021
...spending time in another city for part of the year, or even moving there permanently. Google’s future workplace will have room for all of these possibilities. We’re moving to a hybrid work week with most Googlers in the office approximately 3 days a week.— Sundar Pichai (@sundarpichai) May 6, 2021
We’ll offer more location choices around where to work -- in one our many campuses -- as well as the option to be fully remote based on role and team needs. And we’ll offer flexible benefits like the option to work from anywhere for up to 4 weeks a year.— Sundar Pichai (@sundarpichai) May 6, 2021
