Amazon: Jeff Bezos projected to reach trillionaire status by 2026
The world’s first trillionaire by 2026 could be Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, according to the company Comparisun, and Twitter is not happy.
Amazon will reportedly let corporate employees work from home through June 2021 amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
“We continue to prioritize the health of our employees and follow local government guidance,” an Amazon spokeswoman said in an email to Bloomberg, which first reported the move. “Employees who work in a role that can effectively be done from home are welcome to do so until June 30, 2021.”
Amazon did not immediately respond to USA TODAY’s request for comment.
The Seattle tech giant is not alone in the work-from-home move. Earlier this month, Microsoft unveiled plans to adopt a “hybrid workplace” environment where most roles to remain remote less than 50% of the time with manager approval, even after the pandemic ends.
