Microsoft will bring back more employees to its headquarters starting on March 29, roughly a year after the company first instituted its work-from-home policy, Executive Vice President Kurt DelBene said Monday.
The tech giant's Redmond, Washington, headquarters as well as nearby campuses will be able to accommodate an increase in on-site staff as it continues to track the progress against the virus in the region. However, the company didn't specify at what capacity.

Throughout the pandemic, DelBene said that the company has been monitoring local health data and tracking government requirements in order to assess when it's safe to bring back employees in person.
Recently, it was determined that the Redmond "campus can safely accommodate more employees on-site while staying aligned to Washington state capacity limits," DelBene said.
Under Washington Gov. Jay Inslee's latest order, which took effect on Monday, professional services are encouraged to continue with remote work, although they are allowed to have up to 50% capacity.
