Zuckerberg: We will open the door to remote recruitment

CEO Mark Zuckerberg told the company on Thursday that even after a slowdown in completing transactions related to emerging viruses (COVID-19), Facebook would definitely offer work remotely, which would accelerate the technology sector. Geographical diversity in areas outside its Silicon Valley headquarters.

Zuckerberg said: The largest social network in the world will begin to "open the door to remote work." About half of the workforce is expected to work remotely in the next five to ten years. He added that the company will adopt a "better organized approach" for existing employees based on their previous work and performance, and will set a deadline of January 1, 2021 for employees to modernize the company in the new location.

And Facebook - which has announced that it will stick to its plan to hire 10,000 engineers and product workers this year - will also create three new "connections" in Atlanta, Dallas and Denver that remote workers can work on from time to time.

Zuckerberg predicts that Facebook employees will live in cheaper regions, thus adjusting for higher wages in Silicon Valley, which can cut costs for property, food, and employment.

Earlier this month, Twitter and Square announced similar data that was the first major technology company to allow telecommuting indefinitely. However, Facebook is much larger than the two companies, so its decision could have a greater impact on the industry's work culture.

Zuckerberg said the cost effect is unclear because the savings are partly offset by the travel and additional technology costs associated with setting up home offices.
