This giant tech company instructed its employees to come to the office for only three days
Apple employees will go to the office three days a week starting September 5 under its hybrid work model, as the tech giant prepares to launch a new set of devices and products next month. Apple CEO Tim Cook said in an internal email to employees that they would come to the office three days a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays, as scheduled days at the company.
He wrote, “But now, you will come on the third day, it will be decided by your teams. Each team will work through the decision as to which day is right for them and you will soon get orders in this regard from your leaders.”
As before, many employees will have the option of working from home for two days a week. “Depending on your role, you’ll also have the option of working remotely for up to four weeks a year,” Cook said. The hybrid work model was first announced by Apple in June 2021, and the tech giant is finally implementing it after several delays due to the COVID wave, starting with Bay Area offices. Apple SVP of Software Engineering Craig Federighi In a memorandum sent to the employees, it is said that after years this is indeed happening.
“The week of September 5 marks the perfect start of our Hybrid Work Model pilot in the Santa Clara Valley and I personally can’t wait to see all of us back in the office together again,” Federighi said. Resumption dates for all other locations may vary depending on the current situation of COVID-19 around the world. In such a situation, it is believed that Apple can implement work from home mode forever. This will also provide convenience to the employees.
