SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Alphabet Inc’s Google has seen an increasing number of employees come to its offices each week, especially younger workers, the company’s real estate chief said in an interview at the Reuters Next conference on Friday.
On Thursday, Google indefinitely pushed back the mandatory rollback date for employees due to concerns about the Omicron variant. The company previously said employees could be required to come to the office as soon as January 10.
However, David Radcliffe, Google’s vice president of real estate and workplace services, said many Googlers are returning to the office of their own accord.
“People are voluntarily showing that they want to go back to the office,” he said. “We’re on the right track.”
Younger employees and those who recently joined Google have come to the office at a higher rate, looking for opportunities to learn from colleagues and advance their careers, Radcliffe added.
Google was one of the first companies to close offices during the pandemic last year, and human resources and real estate professionals have hailed it as a pioneer in office design and local perks. worked for the past 20 years.
