Tech giants Apple, Google, and Twitter are reopening offices in India and preparing their employees to return to work at least for a few days a week, to begin with. Apple is bringing back employees in India once a week beginning April 11, and three days a week
effective May 23. Google has opened its offices in India and employees can voluntarily choose to work from its offices.
Twitter has reopened its offices from March 15, including in India. Twitter’s tech hub in Bengaluru has grown to a few hundred employees. Twitter CEO Parag Agarwal tweeted in March: “Business travel is back effective immediately, and all global Twitter offices will open starting on March 15. Decisions about where you work, whether you feel safe travelling for business, and what events you attend, should be yours,” he said.
He went on to say, “Wherever you feel most productive and creative is where you will work and that includes WFH full-time forever…Distributed working will be challenging. We’ll need to be proactive, intentional, learn, and adapt.” He noted: “Office visits, team meetings, and events all bring that culture to life in such a powerful way, and I can’t wait to see it all happen.” Emails to Apple, Google, and Twitter on their India office plans remained unanswered till the time for going to the press.
