Tim Cook lukker Apple ned til Thanksgiving

Apples nye CEO Tim Cook har besluttet at give en række medarbejdere fri hele ugen op til Thanksgiving.

Cook vil give medarbejdere fri med løn mandag til onsdag forud for fridagene torsdag og fredag i forbindelse med den årlige Thanksgiving i anerkendelse af det store stykke arbejde Apples medarbejdere har leveret.

Undtaget fra dette er dog de mange ansatte i Apples butikker, der kan se frem til en meget travl uge, med Black Friday, som normalt er en af årets mest travle dage for butikker. Apples butiksansatte kan til gengæld få fri på et andet tidspunkt.

“We’ve had a record-setting year so far and we’re heading into the holidays with the strongest product lineup in our history,” Cook continues. “Customers are absolutely in love with the iPad 2, and the amazing new iPhone 4S is off to the best start of any iPhone we’ve ever made. The Mac is soaring to new heights with OS X Lion, and on the eve of its 10th birthday, the iPod is still the world’s most popular music player.
In recognition of the hard work you’ve put in this year, we’re going to take some extra time off for Thanksgiving. We will shut down with pay on November 21, 22 and 23 so our teams can spend the entire week with their families and friends.
Not every Apple worker will benefit. “Of course, Retail and some other groups will need to work that week so we can continue to serve our customers,” says Cook. If you’re in one of these groups, please check with your manager about taking time off at a later date. Our international teams will schedule their three-day shutdowns this quarter at a time that’s best for them. Details will be available on AppleWeb”, skriver Cook.
