Corporate Apple employees in the United States began returning to their offices today, ending the two-year stay-at-home policy that Apple implemented during the pandemic. Employees at locations such as Apple Park and Infinite Loop were given an April 11 deadline to return to work in person last month.

Apple has been at times eager to set employees back into the office and set return dates, only to have to push back those dates as the COVID infection rate soared. Apple indefinitely delayed the official withdrawal in December, promising to give employees at least one month’s notice to prepare to return to offices. The notice was sent after a drop in infections in March and the easing of social distancing and masking policies across the US.

While many tech companies have implemented a permanent work-from-home option for some employees, Apple is not one of them. During the global health crisis, Apple has made it clear that employees will eventually need to return to work and collaboration in person.

Apple CEO Tim Cook told employees in June 2021, “While many of us have fallen apart, the truth is that something essential has been missing from this past year: a- Others.” Video conference calling has certainly bridged the distance between us, but there are things it simply cannot replicate.”

Apple is not forcing employees to return to the office five days a week, and has instead adopted a gradual return strategy and a hybrid home/office work policy. Apple employees are currently required to work from the office at least one day per week until April 11, at least two days per week until May 2, and at least three days per week until May 23.

When the three-day in-office work policy is implemented on May 23, employees will have to be in office on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, with most of them able to work remotely on Wednesdays and Fridays.
