Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has suggested that 50 percent of the company’s employees will be working from home in ten years.

Using the coronavirus pandemic as a reference, Zuckerberg said it will have a long-lasting impact on working practices.

He, however, emphasized that the 50 percent figure was his estimate and not an official announcement.

According to a survey of Facebook employees, one in five expressed strong support for working from home permanently, while a further 20 percent expressed “some interest”.

However, 40 per cent said this would not be practical due to the nature of their jobs.
