Microsoft advised its employees in the United States on Thursday that a plan to return to corporate offices in October is being postponed indefinitely.

The decision was made in light of the rebound in COVID-19 cases in the North American country: "Given the uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic, we have decided for now not to set a date for the full reopening of our offices in the United States," he wrote in a blog the corporate vice president of the company, Jared Spataro.

Microsoft advised its employees in the United States on Thursday that a plan to return to corporate offices in October is being postponed indefinitely.

Microsoft had initially set the return date for September, but then pushed it back to October 4 and now says there is no date for now.

The company founded by Bill Gates has about 181,000 full-time employees, of which the majority (103,000 people) are in the United States.

Microsoft will await the new guidelines from health authorities before deciding on a new return date, Spataro added. Next, you will give your employees a 30-day period to prepare for the transition.

Many companies had planned to order the return to the office by early September, but Apple, Google, Facebook, Amazon and other companies in the sector backed down, and decided to wait until next year.

Google, for its part, was among the first to announce that it would return to its renowned Mountain View campus in September of this year, and even designed a plan for employees who decided to continue working from home, lose income.

Now, it has postponed the policy of voluntary return of its employees until January 2022. This was announced by its Executive Director, Sundar Pichai, the reason for this is the fear of the continuity of the health crisis in several countries, in addition to the rapid spread of the Delta variant.
