Facebook Expects Half Its Employees To Work Remotely Forever

Zuckerberg said the company has been removing content that's likely to result in "immediate and imminent harm".

Facebook is allowing employees to work from home for the rest of this year.

"Countries are going to continue to try and interfere and we are going to see issues like that but we have learnt a lot since 2016 and I feel pretty confident that we are going to be able to protect the integrity of the upcoming elections", he said.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg said Thursday he was "pretty confident" his company could help prevent attempts to influence the political outcome of the United States presidential election later this year.

The Facebook CEO said the company may end up hiring more people to manage remote work, which could offset any savings in the costs to have more people working in fancy buildings. Earlier this week, Dorsey announced a similar policy for mobile payments company Square, where he is also CEO.

Launched by Mr. Zuckerberg in 2004, Facebook now employs close to 50,000 people working out of offices spanning several countries.

"When you limit hiring to people who live in a small number of big cities, or who are willing to move there, that excludes many people who live in different communities, they have different backgrounds, they have different perspectives", Zuckerberg said in a broadcast.

The announcement comes as Facebook's paid business-focused platform Workplace recorded a surge in subscriptions, gaining two million paid users in little over six months.

"Culture is built very carefully over time", he said. We " re going to do it in a measured way over time", said Zuckerberg.

Zuckerberg devoted a live-streamed "town hall' meeting with employees to how a remote-work trend compelled by the pandemic is being embraced by employees without affecting productivity". For one, internal polling shows a majority want to get back to into the office as soon as possible, Zuckerberg said.

Facebook found that more experienced and tenured people wanted to work remotely than junior people, and there was no difference in preference by gender, which Zuckerberg said he had been concerned about due to the possibility of a disproportionate load of domestic responsibilities falling on women.

He said the company was committed to keeping its current office spaces, which include a tony Menlo Park headquarters designed by architect Frank Gehry, featuring a rooftop garden and a courtyard sheltered by redwood trees.
