Dropbox announced on Tuesday that it will make remote working permanent even after the pandemic is over.

The San Francisco-based file hosting company has announced that it will revolutionize its work structure and from now on, employees will mostly work virtually and studios will be established in key cities when employees need to collaborate on with each other.

“Although we design software that helps people work from anywhere, most of our employees came to an office every day. We believe the data shows that the switch to remote work, while abrupt, has been successful overall, ”the company said, announcing the new“ Virtual First ”company change in an article on its website.

The company also said it will extend its compulsory domestic policy work until June 2021 in a bid to protect employees amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Dropbox had more than 2,800 employees as of Dec.31, according to its latest 8K.

When it is safe to bring staff together, employees who need to meet or work together in person can use them at the company’s “Dropbox Studios” which will be located in San Francisco, Seattle, Austin and Dublin.

These studios will not be allowed to be used for individual work, but for team building, training and community events.

How often employees will be called to the office will depend on their team and how often they hold strategy and team building meetings.

Dropbox will also allow employees to move out of places where they currently don’t have an office as part of this new model of working from home.

The company will also launch “non-linear” workdays focused on the hours that overlap between time zones.

“We are going through a difficult period. But we believe it provides an opportunity to rethink the way we work for the better. While we think Virtual First is the right choice, it’s new to us and we know we may not be able to do it 100% immediately, ” the company said.

“We are therefore committed to maintaining a learning mindset – to remain open to new information and feedback and to repeat over time until we do,” the statement added.
