Elon Musk先是给管理层ExecStaff发了一封邮件，然后又给员工发了一封邮件，进一步的明确了自己的要求和阐述了几个理由。在第一封邮件中，标题的单词都写错了，acceptable写成了acceptble，也就是老板，换做员工犯这种低级错误，早被他开除了。在理由的阐述中，Elon Musk认为做出一个伟大的产品，必须全身心的投入进去，特别是工厂生产类型的公司。他还回忆当年要不是打地铺，以身作则带头在工厂干活，特斯拉早就破产了。
Remote work is no longer acceptble
Anyone who wishes to do remote work must be in the office for a minimum (and I mean *minimum*) of 40 hours per week or depart Tesla. This is less than we ask of factory workers.
If there are particularly exceptional contributors for whom this is impossible, I will review and approve those exceptions directly.
Moreover, the "office" must be a main Tesla office, not a remote branch office unrelated to the job duties, for example being responsible for Fremont factory human relations, but having your office be in another state.
To be super clear
Everyone at Tesla is required to spend a minimum of 40 hours in the office per week. Moreover, the office must be where your actual colleagues are located, not some remote pseudo office. If you don't show up, we will assume you have resigned.
The more senior you are, the more visible must be your presence. That is why I lived in the factory so much - so that those on the line could see me working alongside them. If I had not done that, Tesla would long ago have gone bankrupt.
There are of course companies that don't require this, but when was the last time they shipped a great new product? It's been a while.
Tesla has and will create and actually manufacture the most exciting and meaningful products of any company on Earth. This will not happen by phoning it in.
