Apple Inc. reportedly is bringing employees back to the office sooner than its other Big Tech peers.

Apple is planning to have employees to return in phases over a few months. The first phase focuses on employees who are unable to do their jobs from home or who are facing challenges while doing work from home. This will likely include employees who work on the company’s hardware products, and some employees who are part of this phase have apparently already started working at Apple’s offices again. More employees will return to Apple’s offices in a second phase of the plan that’s scheduled to start in July.

Apple CEO Tim Cook told employees that the company’s return to work plan would be staggered. “We don’t envision, at least today, everyone going back at the same time,” Cook told employees in a virtual Town Hall meeting. “It may be different teams go back at a different time, it may be people within a team go back at different times.”

Apple began opening its U.S retail stores last week, starting with some locations in South Carolina, Alabama, Alaska, and Idaho employees will have to submit to temperature checks and wear masks. Apple also opened all of its stores in Australia, Austria, Switzerland, South Korea, and Germany.

Thousands of retail employees have worked from home as AppleCare technical support representatives while the stores were closed.
