Twitter is embracing "asynchronous" work, the company announced Thursday as DoorDash and Etsy announced their own return-to-office plans.
"We're taking an #AsyncFirst approach to how we work, embracing communication & collaboration practices that don't require others to be available at the same time or place," Jennifer Christie, Twitter's chief human resources officer, tweeted Thursday morning.
Christie said asynchronous work would allow the social media giant to "be more global & diverse," while promoting flexibility and helping Twitter "do better work."
GitLab and Doist are two other companies that have adopted asynchronous work practices.
Yet unlike those two, which operate remotely and don't maintain offices, Twitter reopened its San Francisco and New York sites last week and is now looking at ways to "reconfigure our spaces to better support hybrid work," Christie said.
The company also said it would shun the use of the words "remote" and "decentralized" in favor of "work from home," "work from office" or "work from both," which Christie said were "more inclusive."
Meanwhile, both DoorDash and Etsy revealed details about their own plans for hybrid work on Thursday.
DoorDash will transition its corporate employees to a hybrid model in January and expects around 80% of its workforce to come to the office a few days a week.
Another 15% will work remotely full time and 5% will be in the office full time, the company wrote in a blog post.
DoorDash now has almost 6,000 corporate employees, almost double its headcount from a year ago.
Etsy, too, is doubling down on a hybrid model, announcing Thursday that it would "continue to invest in our physical working locations, adapt them for a safe and collaborative future and come together to celebrate key moments in-person when it's safe for our offices to reopen."
The company didn't say when that would be, but noted that it would make most of its new job openings available to remote candidates and give its current employees the option to apply to work remotely part or full time.
