Square Enix has announced that it’ll allow most of its employees to work from home permanently. The studio behind the Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, and Tomb Raider games, says the decision is to come into effect on 1st December 2020.


Under the policy, its employees will be designated as either home-based or office-based. Square Enix says it expects around 80 per cent of its employees to be designated as home-based from December 2020.


The company says part of the reasons for the new policy include; creating a flexible and diverse working environment, helping employees achieve the optimal work-life balance, and helping to ‘bolster productivity’. Square Enix says it also hopes that the policy will help it better adapt in the future, either to disasters or just new employment models.

The company says it first made its work-from-home policy in February 2020 in response to the COVID-19. In a survey carried out amongst its employees, it says 80 per cent have a positive view of working from home.


Being home-based does not mean that the employee will work solely from home. It means an employee could work from home for at least three days a week on average. The same also applies to office-based workers.


Employees can also change their status on a monthly basis, however, some employees need to be based in an office. But Square Enix assures that this depends on their roles. The company is not alone in making its employees work from home permanently. Twitter announced a permanent work-from-home policy in May 2020, while Microsoft made a similar announcement in October 2020. Facebook also said that up to half of its employees could be working remotely permanently within five to 10 years.
