Some Apple employees don’t want to return to the office three days a week

They think they’re just as effective working remotely

Some Apple employees are opposing the company’s plans to require them to return to the (physical) office in September, according to The Verge.

Earlier this week CEO Tim Cook sent out a note to employees about a “hybrid” work schedule. Employees will return to the office on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. And they’ll be allowed to work remotely on Wednesday and Friday.

However, The Verge says some employees want a more flexible approach. An internal memo from them has this to say: We would like to take the opportunity to communicate a growing concern among our colleagues. That Apple’s remote/location-flexible work policy, and the communication around it, have already forced some of our colleagues to quit. Without the inclusivity that flexibility brings, many of us feel we have to choose between either a combination of our families, our well-being, and being empowered to do our best work, or being a part of Apple.
