Facebook buys an unused headquarters even as more employees work remotely

 — 15 septembre 2020
Facebook is buying a previously unused corporate headquarters from outdoor retailer REI, despite the social media company's plans to shift more of its employees to working from home.
Like many tech companies, Facebook shifted most of its employees to working from home in March due to Covid-19. Last month the company said it is extending its work from home policy until July of next year due to health concerns. CEO Mark Zuckerberg said earlier this year that he could see half of Facebook’s employees permanently working remotely within the next five to 10 years.
But Facebook has been adding staff throughout this year and adding office space along with them.
« In order to address our rapidly growing workforce, we continue to make investments in physical office locations, » said a statement from Facebook. « In the second quarter of 2020, we added a record 4,200 net new employees and now have more than 52,000 employees. While Facebook envisions 50% of its employees will be working remotely within the next 5-10 years, our offices are still vitally important to our culture and will help accommodate anticipated growth and meet the needs of our employees that need or prefer to work from campus. »
Facebook, which is based in Menlo Park, California, already had three other buildings under development in the same business district as the REI site.
