Microsoft Executive Vice President and Chief People Officer Kathleen Hogan said in a blog post, "For most roles, we consider working from home (less than 50%) the standard." As a result, employees in roles and companies better suited to work outside of the office can work from home or anywhere other than the office for up to 50 percent of their work week.

Hogan had added that in relation to working hours, i.e. the hours and days that employees work, e.g. B.
