COVID Related Temporary Remote Work Now Becoming Permanent
More employers are now making work from home a long term option
It was recently announced that the U.S. federal government is working to implement long term work at home arrangements for employees who have been working remotely since the early days of the pandemic. And they are not alone. Thousands of industries, from education to retail, are looking for ways to let employees continue to telecommute. That’s good news. Because a recent Gallop survey revealed that many employees are still working from home – and would prefer to stay that way.
The trend isn’t just for those who are already working. New hires are also being offered remote work opportunities in industries that traditionally haven’t allowed work from home. Here’s just a few of the latest to announce permanent work-at-home arrangements:
Coinbase, a leader in the cryptoeconomy, recently closed its headquarters in favor of decentralized operations. As a result, they will now offer a “remote-first” platform that keeps nearly all staff working remotely for the long haul.
Christine Trodella, the head of Workplace from Facebook, said the company was planning to offer more remote options even before the pandemic. They now have a webpage devoted to remote opportunities within the organization that not only includes Facebook but also Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger and others.

Quora recently announced that every job within their organization could be performed from a remote location – from anywhere in the world. The company designated 9am – 3pm (Pacific Time) as “coordination hours” which is when many staff members are required to be available for online and virtual meetings. For those who need face-to-face meetings and conferences, Quora is maintaining their Mountain View, CA offices.
