Work from home got underway during the lockdown period all over the world due to the wide spread of Covid-19 cases. Things are now back on track. It doesn’t mean that the Covid pandemic is over. It is still effective; people are getting infected and many of them die as well.

A huge number of people have made it their habit to work from home for the last two years. They feel comfortable not having to move from their respective houses and doing all the allotted work on time from the residence. A lot of people, including Apple engineers, resigned from their jobs after they were called back to the offices. It is better to say that home sickness has developed in many of them during the WFH.

Re-opening of offices

The situation is getting better as Covid cases in several parts of the world are decreasing. Therefore, offices that were shut down for more than two years have reopened. Several staff are excited to be back to their routine lives. There are two faces to a coin. Almost half of the employees don’t like to go to the office and prefer to work from home. They feel it hampers the productivity of a staff member and takes too much time for travelling as well.

Apple’s Director of Machine Learning, Ian Goodfellow, felt the same way. He left his job at Apple after he asked to return to the office.

As per Zoe Schiffer of The Verge, Ian informed his team members about his decision to leave the company. Zoe tweeted, “Ian Goodfellow, Apple’s director of machine learning, is leaving the company due to its return to work policy.” In a note to staff, he said, “I strongly believe that more flexibility would have been the best policy for my team.” He was likely the company’s most cited ML expert.

Apple employees wrote a letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook outlining the disadvantages of returning to work. In an email to Cook, the employees said, “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.” This is a decision none of us take lightly, and a decision many would prefer not to have to make.”

It seems a huge number of employees turn lethargic in two years time. They work as per they get time at home. So, they don’t like to back on their routine. That is why they talk about flexibility— and other things.
