Learn the best practices for hybrid workplaces and remote workforces in our two education sessions.
Many institutional and commercial facilities continue to struggle with decisions on returning to classrooms and workplaces as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. Commercial office buildings can present the most challenging situation for developing a workable strategy, given the diverse tenant needs to account for in deciding whether and how to return. One company, however, has stated its commitment to in-person workplaces.
Google says it plans to spend more than $7 billion on real estate across the U.S. in 2021 as it resumes spending in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, according to CNBC. The company said the money will go toward expanding offices and data centers across 19 states, creating what will amount to at least 10,000 full-time jobs.
The company plans to return workers to offices beginning this fall. CEO Sundar Pichai previously said Google wouldn’t adopt a permanent remote work plan, expecting most employees to show up to assigned offices three days a week starting in September.
