The work-from-home (WFH) culture that emerged from the Covid-19 pandemic has pushed several companies to enforce digital transformation.
Microsoft Corp on Friday said it would allow most of its employees to clock in up to half their weekly working hours remotely. Earlier in May, Twitter Inc became the first major tech company that allowed employees to work remotely indefinitely. Facebook Inc had also said it would its staff could work from home until July next year, while Google had extended its remote working period until June.
Pramod Kurian, COO of Dubai-based Pinnacle Smart Technologies, said: “Organisations have realised what is possible with Work From Home. It is now observed that WFH has increased productivity in certain sectors and helped in lowering of operational costs.”
