Google CEO Sundar Pichai announced in a blog post that it will reopen office campuses in a few cities for a limited number of employees starting July 6. The blogpost offers employees further information on the policies.

According to the company, there will be more flexible policies for those working remotely.

 “Moving ahead, we are looking to develop more overall flexibility in how we work,” he wrote. “Our campuses are designed to enable collaboration and community…at the same time, we are very familiar with distributed work as we have many offices around the world and open-minded about the lessons we’ll learn through this period.”

Most Google employees will be able to continue working remotely, if they prefer, while those that are needed to work from the office will have priority. Therefore, the company will take into consideration needs and personal preferences whenever is possible.

More companies are extending remote options for most employees, and this update comes shortly after Facebook announced the company will allow employees to work remotely beyond the pandemic, as well as Twitter and Square.

“Our campuses are designed to enable collaboration and community—in fact, some of our greatest innovations were the result of chance encounters in the office—and it’s clear this is something many of us don’t want to lose. At the same time, we are very familiar with distributed work as we have many offices around the world and open-minded about the lessons we’ll learn through this period,” Pichai added.
