What's behind Elon Musk's statement?
Once again, a statement from Elon Musk has dominated social media and other outlets in recent weeks. This time, the tycoon says that remote work is no longer acceptable.
On the surface it seems like a debate about remote working, but when it comes to Elon Musk, no phrase is released without a lot of planning behind it (vide bitcoins, Twitter...). So be careful about taking his maxims as commandments.
According to The Washington Post, Musk wants to cut 10% of the electric vehicle maker's salaried jobs and freeze hiring by saying "feeling bad" in an email to Tesla executives. A statement like that puts a good deal of pressure on employees and then those who are uncomfortable will change on their own.
Here the question remains: is it about remote working or about needing to lean payroll?
Ultimately, the real proof of the appropriateness of remote working is the bottom line. XP, Nubank, Microsoft, Google, Meta, all have already adopted at least the hybrid. It's here to stay.
