While technology companies such as Twitter, Google, and Facebook have extended work-from-home order, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook is also impressed by employees’ ability to work remotely.
According to a report by Bloomberg, the CEO said in a recent interview that he doesn’t believe Apple will “return to the way we were because we’ve found that there are some things that actually work really well virtually.”
About 10% to 15% of Apple employees have returned to the office, Cook was quoted as saying.
Despite his positive attitude towards remote work, Cook hopes that the majority of staff can return to the company’s new campus in Silicon Valley sometime next year, the report says.
"Working in the office sparks creativity such as during impromptu meetings," Cook was cited as saying.
The CEO goes into the office at different times during the week, according to the report.
While tech firms are positive about working from home, companies such as Netflix and JPMorgan Chase aren't fond of it, with the former saying remote work is a pure negative and the latter believing a lasting damage coming out of it, the media report says.
