Tech giant Apple is making another attempt to put an end to remote work and get its employees back to offices. Bloomberg reports that Silicon Valley-based company sent a memo to its workers on Monday that they will be required to come to the office for three days a week starting September 5.
Reportedly, Apple workers are set to work in the office on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and one other weekday that will be determined on the team to team basis. The iPhone maker previously planned for Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays to be in-person working days but recently made some adjustments. The new policy will first come into effect for Silicon Valley offices before expanding elsewhere.
Apple employees have so far worked two days in their offices and the rest of the working week remotely. However, the company has been aggressive in attempts to ramp up the return to the office for corporate workers, trying to impose a three-day-a-week schedule last summer. However, this proved challenging due to the increase in COVID-19 cases, and Apple was forced to make several delays.
Bloomberg News recently reported that Apple’s push for office work didn’t sit well with the majority of the workforce. In comparison, other tech powerhouses like Amazon, Microsoft, and Amazon have been more relaxed about working away from the office.
