Apple Employees won't Return to the Fffice Until Next Year!
The original plan was for employees to return to face-to-face work in October, but the rise in COVID-19 cases delayed that plan for a while.
According to the news published in Bloomberg, it seems unlikely that Apple employees will return to their offices until next year. The giant was preparing to recall employees to face-to-face work in October, according to the company's original plan. However, the rise in COVID-19 cases due to new variants has put this plan on hold, at least for now.
This isn't the first change to the plan, either. Last month, Apple delayed the return to office date from September to October. There is no exact date for when the employees will return to the company. According to the report, Apple management told its employees that it would announce the exact date of the reopening a month before they are expected to return to their offices.
Again, Apple may offer opportunities for employees to continue working from home during the new office working period. It was previously reported that Apple requests its staff to work face-to-face on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, but offers them the option to work remotely on Wednesdays and Fridays.
This calendar is a throwback to what was planned for the fall before the reopening date was reportedly pulled back. It is known that the decision of giant companies in this direction during the pandemic period creates a locomotive effect in the sector. The next days will determine what other companies will take against the increasing number of cases.
