Alphabet Inc's Google employees are most likely to continue work from home until September next year.

According to a report by Reuters, Google will allow its employees to work from home until September next year. Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai on Sunday told the company's staff in an email that company was also testing the idea of a "flexible workweek" once it is safe to return to the office.

As per the report, as part of the plan, Google’s employees would be expected to work at least three days a week in the office while working from home the other days. “We are testing a hypothesis that a flexible work model will lead to greater productivity, collaboration, and well-being,” Pichai wrote in the email.

Interestingly, Google was one of the first companies to ask its employees to work from home due to the pandemic.

Earlier, Apple CEO Tim Cook has reportedly told most of his employees not to expect to return to the office until June 2021. It "seems likely" that the majority of teams won't be back before June next year, Cook had said in a virtual town hall meeting with employees.
