If your home office needs a little bit of sprucing up, you might want to see if Google is hiring.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai announced in a blog post the tech giant would give “each Googler an allowance of $1,000 USD, or the equivalent value in your country, to expense necessary equipment and office furniture,” as the company’s employees largely work from home during the coronavirus pandemic.

A Google spokesperson clarified Pichai’s comments, noting the money could be used for ergonomic chairs or a desk. The spokesperson declined to comment on how the money would be doled out to employees.
