According to reports, the search giant has approved approximately 85% of employees who requested relocation and remote working. This is a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.


Since the pandemic started, many companies have provided permanent work from home for their employees. This includes Twitter. Meanwhile, some have been trying to implement a hybrid work culture to ensure those who want could return to jobs and let others work remotely.


In the last months, around 10,000 employees requested Google to let them relocate to a new office or work remotely. The good news is that the company sent out the approvals this week.


The search engine Google accepted to let about 8,500 of the 10,000 who requested a change. Business Insider reported this demand on July 2. However, Google didn't approve the requests from employees whose work demanded access to specific equipment.
