‘Remote Work Is No Longer Acceptable.’ – Musk Tells Tesla Workers

Twitter’s would-be king has warned Tesla employees and current troll-in-residence to return to the workplace or face the consequences.

“Remote work is no longer acceptable.” On Tuesday, Elon Musk emailed the company’s management and used this phrase as the message’s subject line. According to Electrek and Bloomberg, the email is an indication that Elon Musk wants to terminate remote work for Tesla staff and sets expectations for working in the office full-time:

In response to a copy of one of Musk’s hacked emails, the billionaire entrepreneur tweeted what seems to be an admission of guilt: “They should pretend to work somewhere else.”

Musk’s plan to push Tesla staff to return to the office ultimately comes when many other tech businesses are revisiting their policy on employees working remotely. Several organizations, including Reddit, 3M, Spotify, Airbnb, and Oracle, have recently implemented hybrid or remote work policies that will be in place permanently. Apple, which initially adopted a hard-line approach by forcing that staff to start going back into the office in early April, has now postponed this plan due to considerable resistance and has offered them the option of opting out of the return-to-work program.

Twitter is yet another example of a technology business that has embraced a hybrid work paradigm, and it just so happens to be the company that Musk is in the process of purchasing at this very moment.

In a subsequent email to the workforce, Musk explained his choice and said he wanted senior leadership to serve as an example by being “more visible.” Time spent in the plant and visibility are now the most crucial aspect of Tesla’s success. “That is why I lived in the factory so much – so that those on the line could see me working alongside them. If I had not done that, Tesla would long ago have gone bankrupt,” he said.

Musk has said that businesses that do not impose stringent return-to-office regulations are doomed to fail. “There are of course companies that do not require this, but when was the last time they shipped a great new product? It has been a while.”
