As Musk builds Twitter 2.0, managers could be fired for permitting a remote work format for employees that are not “exceptional.”

Elon Musk, the new Twitter owner and CEO, has rolled out in-office requirements for employees as he aims for Twitter 2.0. Musk has been making changes to the social media networking company since the completion of the acquisition deal. After laying off thousands of contract workers and letting go of half of the full-time employees, the billionaire has unveiled strict requirements for in-office and return-to-office procedures.  

Most recently, Elon Musk sent new emails to Twitter employees pertaining to working from home and the office. He said managers must begin to meet physically with all employees, including exceptional staff. While stating that a weekly meeting is ideal, he added that the meeting should happen at least every month.

Musk explained in the email sent on the 17th of November:

“Regarding remote work, all that is required for approval is that your manager takes responsibility for ensuring that you are making an excellent contribution. It is also expected that you have in-person meetings with your colleagues on a reasonable cadence, ideally weekly, but not less than once per month.”

Elon Musk Seeks Extreme ‘Hardcore’ to Build Twitter 2.0

As Musk builds Twitter 2.0, managers could be fired for permitting remote working for employees that are not “exceptional.” The businessman said any manager who falsely says an employee is doing an excellent job would be sacked. One of the first changes Musk made when he became the new Twitter owner was to reverse the previous “work from home forever policy” introduced by former CEO Jack Dorsey. However, he recently added that it is okay for staff to work remotely once they are “performing at an exceptional level” while at it. The world’s richest man said he prefers in-office collaboration, regardless. 

Furthermore, Musk gave employees till 5:00 p.m. eastern time on the 17th to decide on his new working demands. He asked staff to commit to a “hardcore” culture that would make them work “long hours at high intensity” on the Twitter 2.0 journey. Musk sent a document containing “frequently asked questions” that require recipients to click “yes” or resign from their jobs. The CEO told workers:

“If you do not click ‘yes,’ you are confirming your decision to resign. You will receive documents to confirm this and the offer of severance in exchange for a separation agreement.”

Musk has asked employees to support his vision for Twitter 2.0 and makes it through the highly competitive market.
