Besides, Facebook is giving $1,000 as a bonus to each of its 45,000 employees to support them with liquid cash amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, has announced in an internal memo that all employees will earn at least their full bonuses for their six-month review, reports The Information.
Some full-time Facebook employees have apparently taken over some of the work done by third-party contractors so that those contractors can stay home. Facebook has already asked its Seattle and Bay Area employees to work from home. The social networking giant also announced it is offering $100 million in cash grants and credits for up to 30,000 eligible small businesses in over 30 countries.
