Google launches ‘Summer Special’ scheme offering $99 for Googlers to transition to the hybrid workplace | CNBC

Google is hoping to lure workers back to the office with a new on-site hotel special, but some workers aren’t convinced it’s a good deal.

The company said full-time employees can book a room at an on-campus hotel in Mountain View for $99 a night in what it’s deeming a “Summer Special,” according to materials viewed by CNBC. The description states that the special will run through Sept. 30 in hopes it’ll “make it easier for Googlers to transition to the hybrid workplace.”

The new project from ChatGPT founder Sam Altman aims to create a blockchain-based “identity and financial network”. Its native coin WLD has kept a steady price between $2 and $2.50 since its launch on July 24, thus far spared the “pump-and-dump” trajectory of many new crypto tokens.
