With work from home being the 'new normal', cloud-based software company - Salesforce is extending the option for its employees to work from home until July 31, 2021. The company had previously announced that all 49,000 employees were allowed to work remotely until the end of 2020.

The company in its statement said that while Salesforce is slowly reopening its 160 offices around the world based on local government guidelines; the firm is planning to extend the work from home to next summer that will give employees the ability to plan ahead.

With Facebook, Google, Slack, and Uber extending work from home options for employees, Salesforce is the latest to join the group to extend the option until next year. Few companies have even told them they can work remotely even after offices reopen. 

"We understand that moving our offices to our homes is not always easy or comfortable — especially for those with families at home or for those who are feeling isolated — and we're working hard to address the unique needs of our employees during this time," Brent Hyder, chief people officer, said in the blog post.

Other than extending work from home, Salesforce is also expanding remote work benefits for its employees. The company is planning to give each person $250 to purchase office supplies to work from home, which adds to the $250 it gave employees earlier this year. While, parents have the option to take six additional weeks of paid time off, Business Insider reports. 

Salesforce also said that parents and guardians can work from home even after August 2021 if they are in areas where schools are in areas where schools are closed and students are doing remote learning, Business Insider further reported. 

Earlier, when Salesforce had plans to reopen offices, they had previously described the process of reopening its offices as a "light dimmer, not a light switch"-  where reopening each location will be a unique process that will take place in phases. 

Also, Salesforce in May released a set of products to guide organizations in their reopening efforts.
