Tesla workers have had an awkward moment returning to their offices at the express request of Elon Musk .
Tesla workers faced a chaotic situation after returning to the offices at the request of Elon Musk : there were no tables or WiFi in their work centers and the parking lot was not enough.
All this event occurred after, practically, the tycoon forced the workers to return to face-to-face. “Anyone who wants to work remotely must spend a minimum of 40 hours in the office or leave Tesla . This is less than what we ask of factory employees,” Musk said in an email to his employees from him.
“If you don’t show up, we’ll assume your resignation”
The number of Tesla employees has doubled since a year before the pandemic, so the company’s offices may not be adapted for a larger number of people.
Within the technological world, the vast majority, such as Twitter or Google, are allowing their workers to opt for full or hybrid teleworking with some face-to-face days in the office. However, Tesla does not want either of those two possibilities.
“Of course there are companies that don’t require this, but when was the last time they announced a great new product? It’s been a while,” the executive argued.
“ Tesla will reduce its salaried workforce by around 10% in the next three months”, Musk has also pointed out. Elon Musk estimates that a 10% reduction in salaried workers will mean a reduction of between 3% and 3.5% of the total number of Tesla employees .
the king of twitter
But as chaos grips his offices, Elon Musk continues to celebrate.
The billionaire just surpassed the 100 million follower mark on Twitter, becoming the platform’s sixth user to reach a nine-digit follower count.
Musk has reached the milestone after not tweeting for nearly a week. The last post from him that wasn’t a response to someone else was from June 21 and apparently showed gas priced at $7.11 at 7-Eleven, a curious meme that comes amid rising fuel prices around the world. .
