FourFourFour One is an article about Apple’s human resources strategy, which has become one of the most talked about topics at Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference.
Apple’s HR teams are now focused on building relationships with their employees, as the company struggles to hire new employees.
This article covers the history of Apple’s Human Resources and includes an overview of the roles and responsibilities Apple has developed.
Apple is no stranger to human resources issues.
In 2012, Apple was criticized for hiring people without first verifying their suitability.
It was also revealed that Apple’s new HR team had failed to keep pace with changing needs.
The following year, Apple hired former Microsoft executive Craig Barratt as chief human resources officer.
This is a significant move as Barratt had been one of Apples biggest critics of the company’s human resource system, and he now holds the same responsibilities.
Apple has been rumored to be hiring people with a background in human resources management since at least 2009, but the company has never actually said it.
