- Employees are also required to physically clock in for at least 40 hours each week.
- Musk wants Twitter Blue subscriptions to make up 50% of the company’s income.
In his first address to the staff, the company’s new chief executive officer used a gloomy approach. Elon Musk’s first email to Twitter employees put a halt to remote work except as otherwise authorized personally.
The new owner of the world’s largest social media site sent out an email to all of his staff detailing the current situation. Musk made it clear in an emotional speech that he would be making some adjustments for the remaining employees.
Difficult Times Ahead
To put it mildly, Elon Musk’s first two weeks at the helm of Twitter have been action-packed. His first orders of business have been the implementation of widespread layoffs, the resolution of the Twitter Blue issue, and the acceptance of several resignations. But it seems like the rest of the staff who didn’t go are also adapting to the new circumstances.
Through an email, Elon Musk notified his Twitter workers that remote work will be discontinued. Employees are also required to physically clock in for at least 40 hours each week unless otherwise personally approved.
Moreover, Musk has warned his employees to expect “difficult times ahead.” The billionaire went on to say that there was “no way to sugarcoat the message” about the platform’s financial health. Musk concluded by saying he would want Twitter Blue subscriptions to make up 50% of the company’s income.
The new CEO’s decision to end remote employment is a huge departure from Twitter’s previous business model. Employees were given the option to work remotely, and the corporation supported it. This approach seemed rational in light of the worldwide COVID-19 epidemic.
