Transcript for Twitter allows employees to work from home forever. Will other companies follow?
Now to what might be the future of the workplace. Millions of Americans have adjusted to working from home and now Twitter says most of its employees can keep that up if they want to forever. Rebecca Jarvis joins us now with more. Good morning, Rebecca. Reporter: Good morning to you, Michael. That's right. This is all part of the new normal. Twitter's CEO and founder, jack Dorsey telling his employees that if your job function allows for it and you want it, you can work from home forever. A number of major companies have now told their employees that at least for the rest of this year, they can expect to work from home if, again, their job function allows for it. Companies, major tech companies like Facebook and Google, we've also gotten a look at what it might be like when people begin to return to those offices from Cushman & Wakefield they have their six-feet office that spreads people in their cubicles out more distance from each other, at least six feet. You can expect sneeze guards between the cubicles and cues along the floor to tell you which direction you're heading in and a lot of color coating to let you know as an employee where you go but, robin, of course, there are a lot of people out there who cannot work from home and the estimate is only about 37% of Americans can actually do their job from home. Robin. Yes, that's true. Not everybody can do that, Rebecca. Thank you so much. I'm grateful to have been given this opportunity to work from home but as soon as I get the all clear from my doctors I will be heading back but I have a real appreciation for what it takes to work at home.
