Going against its tech industry peers, Apple is set to bring workers back to its global offices soon.

The California-based technology company will bring employees back in phases over a few months, according to a report.

The first phase has begun at some of the company’s locations worldwide and will expand to its major offices in late May and early June, Apple has told staffers, Bloomberg reported Tuesday.

The company’s second phase of reopening won’t begin until July, according to the report. Apple maintains offices in Cupertino, Calif., where its spaceship-like headquarters is located, as well as in Los Angeles and San Diego; Austin, Texas, and Boulder, Colo.

The return-to-work timelines are fluid and may change, particularly given local and state stay-at-home orders, said Bloomberg’s sources, who asked not to be identified when discussing internal company matters.

The return sets CEO Tim Cook’s company apart from its Silicon Valley peers. Google and Facebook have both said their employees won’t be returning in any significant way until the fall or early 2021 — and Twitter has said many of its employees may work from home indefinitely.
