News of the office growth comes at a time when a growing number of businesses, forced to allow employees to telecommute due to the COVID-19 pandemic, are embracing the work-from-home vibe and pledging to allow staffers to continue to do so indefinitely. Among the companies with permanent WFH plans are Twitter, Dropbox, Square, Ford, Zillow, and Shopify.

In a blog post this morning, Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google and Alphabet, wrote that he believes “a lasting economic recovery will come from local communities, and the people and small businesses that give them life.”

The company’s stock was $2,063.00, down $28.08 or 1.34%, in early-morning trading.
