Meta (formerly Facebook) said it will also stick to its early plan that employees who can complete their work remotely can request full-time remote jobs.
Janelle Gale, vice president of human resources at Meta, said: “We have found that some employees are not fully ready to return to work. We will continue to provide a variety of options for employees to choose the best way of working for them. , So that our employees can know where to work.”
The general background for Meta’s decision is that due to concerns about the rapid spread of Omicron’s new coronavirus variants, many companies in the United States have postponed the date of returning to work in the office.
Alphabet subsidiary Google last week indefinitely postponed plans to return to the office globally in January due to growing concerns about Omicron and the boycott of the company’s mandatory vaccination.
Meta said in a statement that the company is “closely monitoring” the situation of Omicron’s new coronavirus variants. The company currently requires all American employees who come to work to be vaccinated against the new coronavirus.
