Microsoft Extends Its Work-From-Home Policy to July 2021

Microsoft employees will be working remotely until at least July 2021, the company told employees on October 21 - Business Insider reports.
Summer 2021 seems to be the target for most big technology companies to open offices. Amazon just this week extended its own remote-work policy for some employees until June 2021. Google and Facebook had previously announced they wouldn't require employees in the office until next June and July, respectively.
According to Business Insider, Some tech firms are reimagining in-person work altogether: Twitter and Dropbox both said they would no longer require employees to return to the office at all, and Apple CEO Tim Cook said last month the success of remote work during the pandemic meant the company would not "return to the way we were."
Microsoft initially closed offices in March to slow the spread of COVID-19. The company told employees they would remain at home until October, but extended the deadline to January 2021 as coronavirus cases continued to rise.
