Ending what has been an eventful 3rd calendar quarter for Apple, Tim Cook has this morning sent out a letter to all employees thanking them for their hard work, congratulating them, and extending the Thanksgiving holiday to give the entire Apple team paid time off this holiday season.
I realize many of you worked tirelessly to bring us this far. I know it required great personal sacrifice…In recognition of your incredible efforts and achievements, I’m happy to announce that we’re extending the Thanksgiving holiday this year.
Apple will be shutting down on November 25th, 26th, and 27th, allowing employees the entire week off. Apple retail, AppleCare, and international employees will not be given those three days but will be granted equivalent paid time off at a later date. Cook also takes pride in the fact that Apple stands for more than just its products–the company also intends to be a “force for good in our world.”
Good guy Tim Cook. Hit the break for the entire email embed. (more…)
