(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Run a company but having a hard time concealing information related to your unreleased high tech devices? Easy solution! Set up your own restaurant strictly for employees to dine and discuss your operations. That’s the step tech giant Apple will take, according to a report from the BBC.
In the past, the company has faced trouble related to leaked information and even missing products. In August, a CNET report indicated that an Apple employee had lost an unreleased iPhone prototype at a bar in San Francisco, California.
According to the BBC, Apple’s planned employee restaurant will be located not far from the company’s Cupertino, California headquarters. It will also feature some pretty elaborate amenities including lounge areas, a courtyard, an underground garage along with meeting space, the report indicated.
“We like to provide a level of security so that people and employees can feel comfortable talking about their business, their research and whatever project they’re engineering without fear of competition sort of overhearing their conversations,” stated Apple director of real estate facilities in a statement provided by the BBC.
Apple is currently undergoing quite a transformation in Cupertino, California, an area popularly known as the company’s headquarters. Last year in June, then Apple CEO Steve Jobs presented a plan to Cupertino’s city council, detailing Apple’s intention to build a second campus covering 2.8 million square feet in the city.
