In lieu of announcing a company layoff, give people the choice of whether to "come back in" or quit.  Smart man.

Quit, Elon wins. Fired, Elons pays severance.

Indeed smart.

I don't think severance is required for layoffs or firing.

Yeah, severance is not required, but usually given for layoffs. Definitely not for being fired...unless you're an executive that ran the company to the ground.

Elon does his own thing but I can see how more companies are going to want people back in the office.  The smart ones will stay remote and mostly remote and start hiring a good talent that is looking to stay remote.

there is also a second email with subject line “to be super clear”

He is basically saying in person collaboration is needed to come up with great new products, taking a dig at companies that have not yet been mandating return to office.

SFH is not holding up….more unicorns and rainbows…
 
The downside to working from home: Google CEO Sundar Pichai warns workers they aren't PRODUCTIVE or focused enough and calls on them to think of ways to speed up product development after revenue growth slowed to 13%
·         Google CEO Sundar Pichai told staff during an all-hands meeting last week that he expected them to improve productivity following a sluggish second quarter
·         As staff were concerned about layoffs, Pichai said: 'It's clear we are facing a challenging macro environment with more uncertainty ahead'
·         The tech giant is handing out a survey to staff to help the company to become more productive
·         Questions on the survey include: 'Where should we remove speed bumps to get to better results faster?'
·         The company did not confirm the prospect of layoffs but said that hiring would be slowed through 2023

easy solution. 20% pay cut and WFH (to make up deficiency in productivity) and no pay cut but return to office.

Exactly why I’ve been in the office every day since the start of this stupid thing. Productivity, i’ve had work from home for over a decade and still barely ever use it.

I used to be that way before the pandemic... a staunch believer that at office was the most productive way to work... even if not really working, you are at the office and available when people need you.

But after Covid, working from home and using the communication tools often and always has changed my mind... for people who can handle it. Due to the fact that I work with various people from different time zones now more than ever, I'm not going to be up at 5 in the morning helping someone with an issue and then have to commute into the office and stay there until 6pm. WFH allows me to be very accessible to both work and family and now I would not have it any other way.

However, it doesn't work for everyone depending on so many variables. I have some co-workers who are terrible WFH people... never around, admitting they aren't working etc etc. Those people should be required to be in-office.

I think most people are this way, which is why productivity suffers.
