Google rejigs remote working

Google is changing its work-from-home policy as it looks to get more people back into its US offices.
The tech firm said employees can work from home overseas for more than 14 days a year if they apply for it.
Google will continue its current work-from-home arrangements until 1 September but will allow people to return voluntarily from next month.
The tech giant was one of the first companies to offer working from home when the pandemic struck last year.
"It's now been a year since many of us have been working from home, and the thought of returning to the office might inspire different emotions," Fiona Cicconi, Google's head of people operations, wrote in a company email on Wednesday.
