Microsoft employees can work from home (or anywhere) forever

As The Vergereported, Microsoft's employees who chose to work remotely on a permanent basis will be allowed to move across the country if they choose, and while it won't cover the costs of hauling across the USA, the company did offer to cover the home office expenses for those remote workers. It provides more flexible working plans and freedom when its offices reopen.
Microsoft is calling its approach a hybrid model and stresses there will be flexibility based on job requirements rather than a one-size-fits-all approach.
The hybrid workplace norm suggests that the workers will be able to stay out of the office for less than half of their office hours and can ask for permission to work from home forever from their superiors. Some staff will be allowed work from home all of the time, if they get approval from managers.
Employees who chose to work from home permanently will have to give up office space, but can still use touch down space as required. Moreover, fully remote employees will have to relinquish their assigned office space, though they will still have access to common areas at Microsoft locations.
"However, for most roles, we view working from home part of the time (less than 50%) as now standard - assuming manager and team alignment", wrote Hogan, executive vice president and chief people officer at Microsoft, in the blog. "Our goal is to evolve the way we work over time with intentionâ€"guided by employee input, data, and our commitment to support individual workstyles and business needs while living our culture".

"For others, whose work can be done entirely remote, there are options to relocate â€" even internationally â€" if approved. They can even seek to move globally if it is viable to work remotely for that role. Employees can expect a change in their pays depending on where they go.
While home office expenses will be covered by Microsoft, those who choose to move away from a company office will have to cover their own relocation expenses.
Moreover, Hogan said that, in terms of work hours, work schedule flexibility is now considered standard for most roles.
One trend occurring because of COVID-related remote work policies is that of employees moving to new locations.
"While part-time continues to be subject to manager approval, our guidance is meant to facilitate an open conversation between a manager and employee regarding considerations", she said.
