Tesla CEO Elon Musk wants employees to return to office as soon as possible. On Tuesday (May 31 2022), he sent an email to his employees informing them that remote working is no longer permitted in the organization.
Employees who do not wish to return to the workplace can quit, according to the billionaire. “Anyone who wishes to do remote work must be in the office for a minimum of 40 hours per week or depart Tesla. This is less than we ask of factory workers,” Musk said in a leaked email that has since spread on Twitter.
Based on Bloomberg reporting, many bosses have wished for some sort of leverage to entice more employees to return to the workplace. Worries about the recession, a series of employment restrictions, and a scathing retort from the world’s richest person like Elon Musk may have just made matters worse.
As the epidemic recedes, is hybrid working still the way to go? Silicon Valley now appears to be an important indicator.
In 2022, people will begin to return to their old ways of living and working as different policies are gradually relaxed around the world. Over the past two years, many companies have had to implement remote work in a short period of time and have learned how to effectively implement a hybrid work model, which means remote work and office work at the same time, to ensure employee safety while reducing the impact of COVID-19 on business operations. As the epidemic recedes, is hybrid working still the way to go? Silicon Valley now appears to be an important indicator.
Apple Inc. ended its two-year work-from-home policy during the COVID-19 pandemic on April 11, and its employees began returning to the office today. While many technology companies have offered some employees the option to work from home permanently, Apple is not one of them. She made it clear that employees will eventually need to return to work in the office.
Office加上Work From Home這種混合工作模式，似乎已經是一個不可逆轉的工作潮流。各項調查的數據廣泛表明出，隨著我們繼續在疫情中邁進，大多數人都希望有混合工作安排 。
例如，微軟的2021年工作趨勢指數其對31個國家3萬多人的研究發現，73%的受訪者希望有遠程工作選擇。 FlexJobs 調查了2100多名在疫情流行期間進行遠程工作的人，發現如果他們不能繼續至少部分時間在家工作，58%的人會選擇離開他們的工作。思科委託進行的《未來勞動力》（Workforce of the Future）調查，訪問亞太區14個市場超過14,000名的受訪者，當中指出，香港的員工希望可以繼續保持這種嶄新工作模式，而在家工作安排可帶來多項正面成效，其中包括：分散不同工作地點的團隊仍可以保持良好運作（56％）、令決策更有效率（55％），以及提高自主性（54％）等等。
