Apple has announced that it will maintain its hybrid work model, which requires most employees to return to the office three days a week starting in early September. The company said fully remote positions will be extremely limited.
The information is from The Verge portal, which had access to a video recording of Deirdre O’Brien, senior vice president of retail and people at the company.
According to the portal, the news comes after a month that Apple CEO Tim Cook sent an email to employees with the new work model. In this format, employees must go to offices on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Following the announcement, Apple employees wrote a letter saying that some employees were forced to resign because of the new policy and asking Cook to change his mind. Employees requested, according to The Verge, that all teams have the option of working remotely.
The Verge reported that Apple is now denying the request, claiming that any remote work decision will be made “on a case-by-case basis with executive approval.”
