Elon Musk threatens Tesla CEOs to return to their positions

Elon Musk threatens Tesla CEOs to return to their positions

Elon Musk is tired of Tesla managers sitting in their home offices. In a tweet on Wednesday, he rotated an email he apparently sent to the same managers on Tuesday.

The world’s richest man wrote in the email that “Anyone who wants to work remotely must be in the office for at least 40 (and I mean *minimum*) 40 hours a week – or leave Tesla. That’s less than we’re asking factory workers “.

Black Twitter followers

Musk did not directly address the authenticity of the email, but suggested it accordingly Bloomberg forcefully by responding to a follower on Twitter who asked him to address those who think the term business is outdated.

He replied, “They should pretend to work elsewhere.”

Raised by the coffee queue

The news agency further cites a tweet sent by Silicon Valley investor and founder Keith Rabois, who worked with Musk at PayPal, two weeks before the former colleague struck an agreement to buy Twitter. The tweet mentioned a situation at SpaceX where a group of interns queued in front of a coffee machine.

Musk considered this an insult to productivity. He threatened to dismiss the trainees if the same thing happened and to set up surveillance cameras.

Rabois also wrote that Twitter employees, according to Bloomberg, one of the most generous home office allocators, “are experiencing a sudden awakening.” An email Musk sent to Tesla executives indicates that Twitter’s attitude toward the home office will change once he takes over.

Are Tesla bosses wrong?

For its part, Marketwatch cites several studies conducted during the shutdown that indicate that home offices are not as negative for productivity as the Tesla boss believes.

In May, researchers from the Texas A&M University School of Public Health released the results of a study that showed, on the contrary, that productivity rose sharply from home offices. Another study, led by Stanford University professor Nicholas Bloom, showed that employees are more efficient if they are allowed to work from home at least some of the time.

According to the website, it is unclear whether Tesla employees will oppose Musk’s ultimatum – in a tight US job market. But it is clear that major companies in the United States are still struggling to return all their employees to the workplace, as the Corona virus continues to cause outbreaks in several places in the country.
