If your company forces you to work from the office instead of doing it remotely, the last thing you would expect is that when you arrive you will find that you have a desk you can work at, a stable internet connection and, depending on what cases, car parking space. What, however, This is not what happened when Tesla employees returned to the office after Elon Musk sort of forced it.
It all started with the fact that in early June, Elon Musk told his employees about obligation to be present in the office and leave remote work behind. “Sure, there are companies that don’t need it, but when was the last time they announced a great new product? It’s been a long time,” the leader said.
“Anyone who wants to work remotely must spend at least 40 hours in the office or leave Tesla. This is less than what we require from factory employees,” Musk said in an email. “If you don’t show up at the office, we’ll accept your resignation.”
This email from Elon Musk inevitably sent many Tesla workers back to the office. The problem is that according to Informationwhen they returned to him, they had to face a bit of a mess: lack of parking, insufficient number of tables and Wi-Fi connection cannot provide the required performance.
The main thing in this matter is that The number of Tesla employees has doubled since 2019. And during the long period of remote work caused by the pandemic, offices have not adjusted to accept all these new employees. On the other hand, Information points out that during the pandemic, some parts of the offices were used for other purposes, which further aggravated the situation when employees returned.
Elon Musk and Tesla go against the sector
The position of Elon Musk and, accordingly, Teslagoes against what has been accepted in the rest of the tech sector. Twitter, for example, is allowing its employees to work entirely remotely or return to the office, although if the Musk purchase comes to fruition, it remains to be seen how that policy will end. Google, for its part, is allowing many of its employees to work remotely two days a week by opting for a hybrid model.
In Spain, many companies are also joining this type of solutions, especially hybrid ones that combine days at the office and days at home. Especially those who have a more technological profile or even some from the banking sector.
