Employees are required to work from the office for at least one day for a while. After May 2, employees will be required to work from the office two days a week. From May 23, employees will have to be at the office three days a week.
One of the most important changes in our lives with the pandemic has been the way of doing business. Many companies worked remotely during this period, and although the effects of the pandemic began to return to the offices, companies began to adopt different working methods. Some companies allowed hybrid working, and some companies closed their physical offices completely and focused only on remote working. Apple was also one of the companies whose names we heard the most during this period.
Apple said at the end of last year that its employees would return to offices in February. However, the company delayed this return and gave its employees an additional $1000 for their expenses. At the beginning of this year, the technology giant announced its conditions for returning to the office. Apple has announced that it will ask store and company employees for proof that they have had the third dose of the vaccine. Despite all this, it was not clear when the company would return to the offices.
However, according to the new statements, Apple’s employees started to return to the offices yesterday. Employees will not be completely in the office during this process and will continue to work in a hybrid order.
Employees are required to work from the office for at least one day for a while. After May 2, employees will be required to work from the office two days a week. After that, starting May 23, employees will have to be at the office three days a week. Apple hasn’t announced how long this hybrid work plan will last, but Tim Cook said it’s a pilot. In other words, it is possible for the employees to return to the offices completely in the future.
While Apple’s company policy requires face-to-face work from April 11, many parts of Apple, particularly those that require office work, have been back in offices for over a year.
