We are returning to normality, or at least to relative normality. After adapting to the pandemic and implementing teleworking, Apple has implemented a return to the face-to-face session which will begin on April 11 and it will gradually increase over the weeks and until May 23.
Six weeks to set up three face-to-face sessions per week
The idea they came up with in Cupertino is that all employees of Apple’s enterprise division start coming to work in person in the offices one day a week from April 11. Three weeks later, you will be asked to come into the office two days a week, and finally end up with three face-to-face days a week
Thus, the company’s employees will find themselves with a hybrid week in which you will work in person three days a week (Monday, Tuesday and Thursday) and you can work from home the remaining two days a week.
Tim Cook sent an internal communication to employees explaining this change, which Mark Gurman had access to. Apple’s CEO is waiting”combine the best we have learned working from home with the irreplaceable advantages of face-to-face collaborations“, and asks all colleagues to support each other to”meet the challenges we face as a team around the world
Apple had delayed returning its employees to the office for the umpteenth time due to the increase in infections caused by the omicron variant of COVID-19, but now that this pace is slowing again, it has finally decided to implement a transition this will end a few days before the WWDC22 scheduled for early June. Let’s hope that no other variant will put an obstacle neither in Apple’s plans nor in our lives.
