At the beginning of June we knew about the intentions Elon Musk regarding remote work. The CEO and founder of Tesla sent out a letter to employees demanding return to full-time work or leave the company. In the post, the mogul indicated that anyone who wants to work remotely must “be in the office for a minimum (and I mean minimum) 40 hours a week” or, if not, they must leave the company. “That’s less than what we’re asking factory workers,” Musk said.
But this opposition to this modality is not new. A few months earlier, the billionaire shared the following tweet on social media: “All the posts about staying at home due to Covid are misleading people into thinking it’s really don’t have to work hard“. However, now it seems that the mogul has changed his mind. This week in one of the meetings with the directors of Twitter, marked these words.
Although he insisted that face-to-face work should be a priority for all companies, Musk opened the door for those employees who are “significant participants” may be an exception to this rule. This was confirmed by Bloomberg correspondent Kurt Wagne after a meeting with reporters. Faced with media questions, the would-be Twitter owner assured that there is no point in laying off these workers “exceptional” who can only perform their functions remotely.
A few updates from Elon on Twitter this morning:
He was simply asked about layoffs, and he replied that the company “needed to get healthier” without abandoning the idea.
“Anyone who makes a significant contribution has nothing to worry about,” he added to $TWTR.

The reason he will support this modality on Twitter is because he believes that computer company it is much more dynamic than a car factory. The New York Times was present at this meeting and confirmed Musk’s opinion that by not coming to the office, you lose “team spirit”.
