Elon Musk's Email: The Pros & Cons of Sending Employees Back to the Office
The post-pandemic world is changing, things are slowly going back to the way it was before covid struck. But are employees being sent to work in the office again? The answer is yes and it is bringing a lot of controversies. If you haven't heard about this, you are going to want to listen! An email written by Elon Musk was leaked which captured nationwide attention. Pete and Ricky discuss it in this episode of The Hire Calling Podcast, leading them to create a list of pros and cons of sending employees back to the office. Businesses are making touch decisions now, post-pandemic, whether it is coming back to the workplace, going hybrid, or staying strictly remote. Tesla is one of those companies in the spotlight that suddenly broke the internet after Elon Musk made the announcement that he is terminating the opportunity to work remotely. Now many people are arguing how unfair this is for Teslas employees, but is that true?Although Pete and Ricky understand that it is not their place to say whether this is wrong or not, they do believe that the employer has a say when it comes to their business. Going back to the office isn't meant to harm employees, but could it possibly be that there is more enrichment when it comes to having this primary space? Sending an email might not be the perfect way to announce that kind of message, Pete & Ricky believe that leaders have to make tough decisions. If an employee is upset with a change in the workplace, then the concern needs to be brought up to the leader. Ask those important questions that might give you closure, like why it is happening? Doing so can help one find the rationale behind it. Will Elon's decision impact other smaller businesses to make this same choice? It could possibly set them up for failure, causing employees to leave in search of remote positions. But for the workers who stay, there might be a more positive outcome because they will be back in a setting where they will be able to develop more training and be surrounded by deep interactions with peers or other employees with experience; something that lacks in the remote setting. Could it be that trust and accessibility is the main cause of bringing employees back? Tune in if you are curious about Pete and Ricky's list of pros and cons.
