Apple has requested its employees to attend the workplace at least on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday with remote work still being an option for Mondays and Thursdays.
Tim Cook, CEO of Apple Inc., wants to see some of the firm staff return offices for at least three days a week in September.
Employees of the iPhone manufacturer work on the propagation of COVID-19 remotely over the last year. The Verge reported Cook in an internal letter, that Apple has requested its employees to attend the bureau on at least Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, with remote work being still a choice for Wednesdays and Fridays.
The staff may work remotely for up to 2 weeks each year “to be closer to families and loved ones, to change the landscape, to take unforeseen journeys, or for another purpose.”
Teams that have to work in person, however, are reinstated for five days a week.
In the meanwhile, the instances of COVID-19 have gone downwards in the United States, which is one of the reasons Cook may want to get his employees back to the office.
“The reality is that there is something vital missed over the last year, for all that we have been able to accomplish while many of us have been apart. Video conference calling has indeed reduced the distance between us, but there are things that cannot simply be reproduced, “The message indicated the CEO of Apple.
Cook also urged all workers of the business to get immunized.
“Let me just say, for the time being, that I look forward to seeing your faces.”
“I know that the buzz of activity, energy, creativity, and co-operation of our meetings in person and the feelings we have all built up to have not left me alone,” he said.
Amazon, Facebook, and Google included technology titans have, at least until June 2021 permitted their workers to work from home (WFH).
The business wanted some of its workers to work permanently on the remote at some point on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
