Though CEO Tim Cook earlier stressed on the in-person collaboration within the company, Apple Together says that “the company’s culture of secrecy makes chance moments of inspiration impossible, and that workers are happier and more productive with a more flexible arrangement.”, as per a report by Engadget.
As per the report, Apple initially wanted to call people to the office on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. After seeing the pushback from employees, it changed the days which are Tuesday, Thursday and a regular third day which is jointly decided upon by the employees and their manager.
Apple has been trying to enforce its post-Covid policy of getting the employees physically back at the offices since June 2021, and it was at that time when the company announced its three day work-from-office plans. Apple’s plans were put on hold by the resurgence in Covid cases then.
