Apple reduced the number of recruitment professionals

In the face of macroeconomic uncertainty and rising inflation, many firms in the technology sector were forced, if not reduced, to at least stop hiring new staff; Apple was not left out of the trend, and previously recruited contractors were reduced in some cases.

Last week, Bloomberg reports that about a hundred of the outside company specialists involved in these tasks were paid a two-week severance pay with the phrase "in response to the changing needs of Apple", a reduction of contractors in this direction affected many of the company's offices in different countries, but some of the professionals retained jobs and Apple's staff were not affected at all by optimization.

Changes in the staffing table were rapidly implemented, some of the contractors had to send an e-mail list of personal effects that they were required to obtain from the office because they lost physical access to the previous workplace in a moment and had not been able to collect their own items. Apple engaged contractors to carry out certain tasks, usually receiving less social security and less legal protection than regular staff.
