In a somewhat surprising email sent to his employees and revealed by the US media, the Tesla boss instructed his employees to return to work in the office.
Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Inc, has asked his employees to return to
office or leave the company, according to an email memo to employees circulating on social media.
The note will read “Anyone who wants to work remotely must be in the office at least 40 hours (and I mean minimum) per week or leave Tesla.”
Elon Musk will “review and approve” on a case-by-case basis, placing those who cannot meet the specified minimum hours, according to this memo.
When asked about this remark, the Tesla boss did not deny its authenticity on Twitter.
One user on the platform asked, “Do you have an extra comment for people who think coming to work is an outdated concept?”
“They should pretend to work elsewhere,” replied the billionaire.
In his email, the Tesla boss specifies that applications for remote work will likely be screened, but will only be accepted on an exceptional basis.
He asserts before recalling that 40 hours of weekly presence is “less than what we require for workers in factories” if there are particularly exceptional shareholders that it is impossible for them to do, I will examine and agree to these exceptions directly.

“The older you get, the more visible your presence should be,” he writes. long time. “
Like other large companies, Tesla has made it mandatory for its employees to return to the office. While some companies, such as Google, believe that returning to the office has a positive effect by promoting exchanges between colleagues, others have made permanent agreements on remote work.
