Apple employees will return to the company’s headquarters in Cupertino at least three days a week, starting September 5.
According to Bloomberg, Apple is asking its employees to work in the office on Tuesdays, Thursdays and the usual third day, which will be scheduled in shifts. The new policy will start in Silicon Valley and then roll out to other offices.
Employees were notified of this change on Monday, August 15th.
Apple’s transition to a hybrid work model has been repeatedly delayed since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. Efforts to return to the office began in June 2021, but rising Covid-19 cases and options have delayed the company’s plans.
The schedule has been reviewed several times.
Apple last changed plans to return to the office in May last year. Three months earlier, in March 2022, CEO Tim Cook noted that some employees have mixed feelings about returning to the office after more than two years of working from home.
“For many, I know that a return to the office is long overdue and positively represents the opportunity to spend more time with our colleagues who play such an important role in our lives,” he wrote.
“For others, it can also be a destabilizing change. I want you to know that we are committed to providing you with the support and flexibility you need for the next step. »
