New Delhi: The COVID-19 pandemic has changed a lot of things but the biggest change was seen in the work culture. Initially, it seemed tough for companies to allow work from home to employees. However, it has now become much feasible that companies are giving options to their employees to choose permanent work from home options or work from anywhere.

Here is the list of some big companies that have opted for permanent work from home culture:

1) Twitter

Famous micro-blogging site Twitter has allowed most of its employees to work from home in May 2020. However, those employees whose work requires them to be present at the office will have to come to the office.
