Apple employees will return to the office three days a week from the beginning of September, the company confirmed to CNBC.
“In everything we could achieve while many of us were apart, we were missing something essential last year: each other,” said CEO Tim Cook in an email he received to the staff at Der Rand. “Videoconferencing calls have reduced the distance between us, but there are things that they just can’t reproduce.”
Apple will ask most employees to work in the office on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. Some teams are asked to return four to five days a week.
Employees have the opportunity to work remotely for two weeks a year.
Companies are increasingly bringing employees back to offices as Covid-19 vaccines roll out and cases decline. But for many tech companies, the pandemic has allowed employers to relax their attitudes toward office work and persistently adopt a remote working mindset.
Twitter and Square, for example, let employees work from home “forever”.
