Apple Inc. still has two days to return to the office each week, for now.
The iPhone maker on Tuesday suspended plans to return staff to the office for an extra day a week, amid growing Covid-19 cases in the San Francisco area and complaints from some employees, who are unhappy with the proposed increase.
After several delays, Apple began returning to office at least one day a week in early April with a gradual increase to three days next week. Employees then simply start over two days a week. Some employees left the company because of its determination to be more personal.
The company’s invitation to employees on Tuesday did not include a new timeline for extending working hours. It was the latest change in Apple’s efforts to return to normalcy more than two years after the global epidemic improved daily life.
Cupertino, Calif., A technology giant was among the first companies to send workers home as the spread of coronavirus is still one of the highest examples of the challenges of finding balance in return. As businesses large and small have tried to live a mixed life, some have reduced their desire to return two days from three days a week amidst a strong labor market and workers want more flexibility.
Apple’s delay plans were previously reported by Bloomberg News.
