Certain corporate Apple employees will reportedly have their upcoming bonuses postponed until later in the year.

Citing unnamed sources, Bloomberg reported Tuesday tech giant Apple will do so for workers in corporate divisions that usually get bonuses on a biannual basis. Those affected will go from having their bonuses split between the two months of April and October to receiving the payment in-full in the fall, according to the outlet.

Operations and corporate retail are among the divisions that will see their bonus schedules altered in that manner, per Bloomberg. The annual payment is reportedly what most groups at Apple already experience.

Some other moves Apple is reportedly making amid efforts to lower costs pertain to hiring. 

The company won’t fill some roles that get freed up by the exiting of workers, according to Bloomberg. Recruitment efforts for more roles reportedly will be curbed as well.
