Covid-19 Causes Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT) to Prolong its Back-To-Office Plans

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT) says it won’t forecast a new opening date for most US worksites. First, however, the company needs to face the prevailing conditions, and it was evident that the lives of its employees count. The cloud of uncertainty that continues to engulf the Covid-19 menace continues to be a significant impediment to most businesses worldwide. Microsoft admits that its business has suffered a great deal.

The Covid-19 impact

The Covid-19 outbreak resulted in the loss of many jobs, and most businesses resorted to working remotely. The video conferencing tools rose in demand, and they facilitated online meetings held by most companies. The development of vaccines to combat the virus seemed to be the solution, and most companies thought t was the time to go back o work. Unfortunately, matters didn’t play out as planned after the outbreak of the delta variant that has caused a lot of uncertainty, and Microsoft says it won’t give a projection before the situation changes. 

Microsoft admits that getting the proper public health guidance could cause it to change its mind. For example, it might reopen most of its US worksites and continue operations.

Spataro’s perspective

 Microsoft (MSFT)‘s company vice chairman for contemporary paintings, Jared Spataro, has been one of the company’s leaders disclosing details about the company’s latest resolve.  The official speaks about how the delta variant knocked off their plans to reopen the facilities in Washington and Redmont. Instead, he says that the company has plenty of work sites spread out across the United States.

Spataro opines, “The evolving Delta variant is compelling many of us to adjust plans for reopening worksites. It’s a stark reminder that this is the new normal. Our ability to come together will ebb and flow.”

Microsoft is one of the many firms that need to prolong their back-to-office plans, and most of them say they can’t risk lives.
