Elon Musk requires face-to-face work at Tesla, but lacks space for everyone – APK Games

On May 31st, Elon Musk sent an email to its employees with an ultimatum: either they returned to face-to-face work for at least 40 hours a week or they had to leave the Tesla. Now, three months later, a report from CNBC revealed that there is still no room to accommodate them and that the company would be dismissing employees who were opposed to the new format without prior notice.

As we know, the Tesla CEO is not a big fan of remote work. In the May communiquéafter all, he warned that there could even be exceptions to remote work, but that each would need to be evaluated individually by him.

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, Tesla had to adopt remote work, after all, it has seen significant growth in recent years. Even so, the company did not gain new work spaces, nor did it acquire equipment to serve everyone.

In the report of CNBCseveral employees who work in San Francisco Bay, California, said that Tesla wanted to bring them to the offices three days a week.

However, the lack of space on tables, chairs, parking spaces, and other features would have gone too far. As an attempt at a solution, the company would have made stopovers, setting staggered office hours for two days a week.

The report even states that simple materials, such as cables and chargers, are in short supply. Even talking to other people on the phone would be difficult. Employees complain that they need to go outside the building to answer and make calls, due to overcrowding, lack of meeting rooms and individual booths.

Company fired employees without notice

In June, after Musk demanded 40 hours of face-to-face work, the CNBC reported that Tesla made sharp cuts to his frame. Those who used to work remotely and cannot move to face-to-face work have until the end of this month to decide whether to take a job at the company or resign.

A week after that offer, Tesla’s HR reportedly asked people who lived far away if they planned to move. Some of those who said they weren’t sure or who outright denied the proposal were fired without warning.

Also according to the CNBC, Tesla would be monitoring the presence of its employees through their badges. So it turned out that Musk would be getting reports on the defaulters weekly.

However, not all employees are monitored in the same way. Those who report directly to Elon Musk, for example, do not have their presence accounted for in this report.

According to internal documents, as of early September, about 12.5% ​​of employees at the Fremont, Calif., unit had been absent from a normal workday.

When this data was compared with the entire company, the presence was a little better. During that same period, about one in ten employees was absent on a typical workday.

THE CNBC said he had contacted Tesla, but the company did not respond until the report was published.
