Cisco will let its 75,000 employees work remotely indefinitely, it announced Thursday.




The firm didn't notice a drop in productivity with work-from-home and expects to save money.




Less than a quarter of Cisco's workers now plan to return to offices 3 or more days a week.

Cisco will not require workers to return to offices even after COVID-19 ceases to be a threat, the company announced Thursday.Under the "no return to office" policy, Cisco will not set any top-down mandate for the number of days per week its more than 75,000 employees spend in physical offices. Instead, every employee will be considered a hybrid worker and the company's leadership is encouraging managers to grant workers flexibility in whether they work remotely or in the office.Even before the pandemic, many at Cisco worked from home, with roughly 14% of employees working remotely prior to office shutdowns. But now, more than 75% of employees say they plan to continue working remotely three to five days per week even when office entry is possible, according to company surveys. When most employees began working remotely amid COVID-19 outbreaks and mandated shutdowns, Cisco managers found that productivity didn't seem to take a hit from remote work, according to Jeetu Patel, an executive vice president who manages Cisco's security and collaboration businesses.
