Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, said on Tuesday that it plans to fully reopen its U.S. offices by the end of January, but will allow employees to delay their return to the office until June.

The social media giant’s “office delay program” is designed to give workers the flexibility to return to the office, but at the same time send a clear message that workers are expected to return.

Earlier, the company said it could ask employees to agree to continue working full-time remotely, but their request may not be approved and, if so, a pay adjustment may be made.

Under the new program, some employees may still be asked to work remotely, Meta said in a statement.

In August, the company announced that it would delay the opening date of its official office from October to January, given the ongoing threat of COVID-19.

Meta Vice President of Human Resources Janelle Gale said in a statement on Tuesday that some of the company’s workforce is not yet ready to return and the new program is designed to accommodate them.

“For those looking to return in January, we look forward to providing a live office experience that puts health and safety first,” Gale said.

Mark Zuckerberg announced the rebranding of Facebook to Meta on October 28th.

“We also understand that some are not ready to return,” he added.

“We will continue to offer a variety of options to choose the most suitable for them so that our employees can make an informed decision about where they will work.”

The announcement came as large and small companies across the country are trying to figure out a way out of the pandemic and return to some sort of normalcy.

Some companies are urging employees to physically return to the office as soon as possible, while others tend to work remotely to reduce costs and attract new talent.

During the entire pandemic period, Big Tech, one of the world’s largest enterprises in terms of market capitalization, paved the way for long-distance and delayed return of workers to the office.
