Apple CEO Tim Cook asked employees to return to office but not many liked the idea. In fact, after mandating work from office policy, an Apple engineer with an annual salary of around 6 crore quit to join Google. In a latest update, the Cupertino-based tech giant has announced plans to make working hours flexible for some workers.
Ian Goodfellow, who oversaw machine learning and artificial intelligence at Apple, resigned last month citing the lack of a flexible work environment and policies. Goodfellow has joined Alphabet Inc.’s Deepmind division. He joined Apple in March 2019 as the “Director of Machine Learning in the Special Projects Group.”
Apple CEO earlier asked employees to work from the office for atleast three days a week. The company has now put its decision on hold due to rising COVID-19 cases.
