Apple Offering Select Employees Two Week Breaks for “Special Projects”
By on November 12th, 2012

The Wall Street Journal (via Business Insider) reports that Apple is now allowing a small group of employees to spend up to two weeks working on special projects outside of their standard job responsibilities. According to the report, this initiative is dubbed “Blue Sky”.

Apple’s program is similar to Google’s long-standing ”20 percent time.” Google’s “20 percent time” allows employees to spend one day a week on side projects that may create usable products or solutions.

Tim Cook apparently started “Blue Sky” earlier this year, though an exact date was not revealed.
