- 90% employees don’t want to a rigid office schedule: Dropbox’s internal survey
- Employees can make their own schedules in the new ‘virtual first’ policy
- Dropbox will set up collaboration spaces called ‘Dropbox Studios’
Cloud services company Dropbox is allowing its employees to work from home permanently, as part of its new ‘virtual first’ approach, it announced Tuesday in a blog post.
All employees of Dropbox have been working from home since March when the pandemic triggered lockdowns. This mandatory work-from-home policy has now been extended until June 2021. The change comes after an internal survey by the company suggested that nearly 90% of employees feel productive at home and don’t want to return to a rigid five-day in-office workweek.
Dropbox is the latest to join technology companies including Microsoft, Twitter, Slack, and Facebook to announce permanent work-from-home policies.
“Remote work will be the primary experience for all employees
