Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai said he expects the Google parent to be at 30-percent office capacity by the end of 2020, he told tech podcast "The Vergecast."
Pichai said during a May 8 meeting that only employees who need to return to the office can do so in June or July, but the majority of Google's other employees will likely work from home until next year, according to The Information.
"There are people who really want to come back, and they miss it. Especially at Google, for 20 years, we have genuinely invested in our physical spaces and the culture it creates with a view to having people work well together," Pichai said. "But I expect by the end of the year, we'll be at 20-to-30-percent capacity."
