A senior director at Apple has quit his job in protest at the company demanding staff return to the office three days a week.
Ian Goodfellow, the director of machine learning, is believed to be the most senior employee to resign so far as a result of the plan.
On April 11, the company began mandating one day a week in the office – a requirement that rose to two days on May 2. By May 23, all staff had to be at their desks three days a week.
A survey of Apple workers from April 13-19 found 67 percent saying they were dissatisfied with the return-to-office policy, Fortune reported.
And Goodfellow, in his resignation note, said he would not do it.
‘I believe strongly that more flexibility would have been the best policy for my team,’ he said, according to The Verge.
