Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) has expressed its openness to embrace the flexible hybrid system. This new strategy continues growing significantly in popularity among most of the leading corporations because of the flexibility that it presents. The operational system involves employees spending a few days in an office and rest in remote working joints.
The employees continue to express diverse opinions regarding Google’s move. Some show reservations, whereas others prefer the old way. A section of the employees prefer the plan and seek to work from the less expensive areas to cut down expenses.
Managers face a massive task ahead because they need to strike a good balance between empathy and handling the competing interests the best way. Remoter work might seem a cool thing for most employees, but analysts project that most managers will continue pushing to get all workers working under one roof.
Pichai speaks out on the new return-to-work program
The company’s CEO, Sundar Pichai, delivered an internal message to the search company’s employees, letting them know how he intends to carry out the process.

The other lot wants to work from a different city for some time or even become permanent workers from those new locations.
