With the coronavirus still making the rounds, many schools and companies have already announced they’ll go virtual for the Fall season.
Google for example just announced it will extend its “work from home” order through summer 2021. “To give employees the ability to plan ahead, we are extending our global voluntary work from home option through June 30, 2021 for roles that don’t need to be in the office,” Google CEO Sundar Pichai said, as quoted by CNBC.
Other big tech companies have said employees can work from home until the end of 2020, including Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Twitter. We’re likely to see more of this happen as the outbreak continues. As of Monday, the U.S. has 4.23 million cases with a good deal of infection in California, New York, and Florida.
Some of the top stocks to watch on the “work from home” trend include:
- Slack Technologies (WORK)
- Zoom Video Communications (ZM)
- Advanced Micro Devices (AMD)
