CEO’s everywhere could learn something from Jack Dorsey.

In an email sent to staff, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey announced that employees can work from home—forever. While some positions will require an in-office presence, those who can work remotely will have the option of doing so. If that gesture wasn’t enough, Twitter also increased the work from home supply allowance to $1,000 per month for each individual.

“We’ve been very thoughtful in how we’ve approached this from the time we were one of the first companies to move to a work-from-home model,” a Twitter spokesperson told BuzzFeed. “We’ll continue to be, and we’ll continue to put the safety of our people and communities first.”

Since the country is at a standstill and his staff is tweeting safely from home, Dorsey has spent the extra time partnering with Rihanna, Eminem, Reform Alliance, and others to fight COVID-19 in underserved communities. As of now, Twitter offices won’t be re-opening until at least September, with all business travel and in-person events canceled until 2021.

Companies who were once against remote working have now seen that employees are happier and more productive while working from their homes. An IBM study shows that 75% of people would like to continue working remotely even if in a partial capacity, with 54% preferring this as the new operating standard.

Will more follow suit and adopt remote work as the norm after seeing their staff’s ability to maintain performance levels from their kitchen table?
