Apple has therefore officially ended its two-year work-from-home policy activated due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Last month, the company had already informed employees at sites such as Apple Park and Infinite Loop that by April 11, they should all be back in the office.

In fact, Apple has always pushed back to the office as soon as the spread of the pandemic has subsided, believing that only human contact and face-to-face meetings can create those relationships essential to give birth to great ideas, despite Au During the two years of smart work, the company has nevertheless managed to launch many new products such as the Mac M1.

“Despite all we were able to do while many of us were apart, the truth is that we have been missing something essential over the past year: each other,” Apple CEO told Tim Cook employees in June 2021. “Video conferencing has reduced the distance between us, of course, but there are things it just can’t replicate”.

For this first phase, Apple has adopted a phased return to the office strategy, as employees will be required to work in the office at least one day a week from April 11, at least two days a week from May 2 and at least three days a week from May 23. When the three-day office work policy takes effect on May 23, employees will be required to report on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, with many able to work remotely on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Unlike Apple, other tech companies offer employees the option of returning to the office or continuing to work from home all week, except for particular roles.
