Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, has reportedly instructed his employees to return to the office full-time, stating that remote work is no longer acceptable. Leaked emails containing this new policy were circulated on social media, with one of them apparently addressed to executives. Tesla has not yet commented on the situation. In response to a question about the policy, Musk stated on Twitter that anyone who is unwilling to follow the new rules can “pretend to work somewhere else.” The emails reportedly state that all Tesla employees are required to spend at least 40 hours per week in the office, and failure to comply will be considered a resignation.

According to leaked emails, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has mandated that employees must return to working in the office full-time, asserting that remote work is no longer acceptable. The emails specified that staff should report to one of the company’s main offices and not a remote branch unrelated to job duties. Mr Musk added that he would personally review any exemption requests from the policy. He argued that in-person collaboration is critical to the company’s success, as it is what is asked of factory employees. He said that Tesla will continue to create and manufacture the most exciting and meaningful products on earth and this will not happen if employees are phoning it in. While some industries have signaled that they will return to the office, others have opted for a mix, allowing for remote work indefinitely. Kastle data shows that office occupancy in the US is at about 43%.

Renowned for his hardworking approach to business, Elon Musk is known to rarely take holidays and during a critical period for Tesla a few years ago, he even slept on the factory floor.

The CEO of Tesla, has ordered all of his staff to return to the office full-time, stating that working remotely is no longer an acceptable option. Leaked emails revealed that the new policy applies to all of the company’s main offices and that anyone who does not comply with the policy will be assumed to have resigned. Musk stated that working in the office full-time is crucial for in-person collaboration, and that remote working was not an option for factory employees, so should not be for other employees. The move has raised the potential for a clash of cultures with Twitter, which Musk is in the process of buying for $44 billion, after the company’s CEO stated that staff could work from home indefinitely.
