Tencent technology news, August 1, according to sources familiar with the company's plans, Microsoft has chosen January 19, 2021 as the earliest date for its U.S. office to be fully open to employees. The software giant is planning to reopen its offices in phases, and Microsoft has set a six stage timetable to show employees the process of returning to normal.
After the first five stages are completed, the sixth stage will be that the office is ready to be fully reopened and employees can be brought back to work. Of course, Microsoft's office will only return to normal operation when most of the restrictions imposed during the outbreak are lifted and health data indicate that it can be safely returned. The six phases of Microsoft Office re opening are: closing, compulsory work at home, strongly encouraging work at home, soft opening, open but limited and full opening.

It is reported that Microsoft will adjust and postpone the opening date of its office in January 2021 as needed to cope with the epidemic.
Microsoft initially allowed employees to work from home in March, but later, with the spread of the epidemic in Seattle, Microsoft imposed a work at home policy. The company is currently in the second phase of its open workplace process, which maintains the mandatory home work order.
Microsoft is not the only company that plans to allow employees back to the office after 2021. Apple employees won't be back in the office until early next year, Facebook employees will be allowed to work remotely by the end of 2020, Amazon will allow employees to work from home until January 2021, while Google plans to let employees work remotely until July 2021.
