Facebook designs its future in 5 years, with a majority of its employees to telework

A week after the announcement by Twitter that some of its employees will be able to stay at home "forever ", Facebook explains with more details the way it intends to organise its work force in a world post-Covid-19. "We will be the most advance in the world on the remote work", said its CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who estimates that half of its employees work from home 5 to 10 years.

A significant move for the social network, whose culture was based on physical proximity and emulation encouraged within its huge campus in Menlo Park. But Facebook, which estimated that the disruptions caused by the sars coronavirus are required to take, will also have to adapt. "We're going to start actively recruiting people to work at a distance from the 1st July" said the company, which will also allow its 45,000 employees spend telecommuting, but under certain conditions.

't telework for young recruits

"Only employees that can justify a certain age, who have good performance and are part of a team with which telework is possible will be able to work from home permanently," said Mark Zuckerberg in an interview with The Verge. Facebook, the vast majority of employees are now telecommuting from the measures put in place against the Covid-19, therefore, will require a party of them return from the next year. In particular, young recruits, who must learn to work as a team to enjoy more autonomy.

Until now, Facebook was in another logic, and instructed his employees financially to relocate near their place of work. Considering it in this new configuration to adjust their wages according to the cost of the life of their place of residence, and therefore possibly decrease the payments of those who would choose to leave the very expensive Silicon Valley.

But, according to its CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the widespread introduction of teleworking is not necessarily going to cost less to Facebook. In effect, employees who work from home will be regularly brought to visit one of the sites of the company to meet physically with their colleagues. A non-negligible cost supported by the company which, according to Mark Zuckerberg, will be equal to the savings made in wages and in rent.
