Get access to Protocol
As COVID-19 vaccines are getting into more people's arms, tech offices are starting to roll out plans to get their employees back to work. Some of the plans involve going back to the office full-time, whereas some are employing a hybrid model. Some companies, like Google and Apple, want workers back soon.
For others, it's less clear: IBM doesn't have a noted return date, though it released a playbook for how a return would look. Netflix doesn't have return plans, either, but Reed Hastings told The Wall Street Journal, "It's probably six months after a vaccine. Once we can get a majority of people vaccinated, then it's probably back in the office." And both Salesforce and Twitter have told employees that they can permanently work from home.
Here's our list of when tech employees can expect to be back in the office.
