With his announcement that he wants to cut ten percent of jobs at Tesla, Elon Musk recently alienated many investors. In a brief tweet, the billionaire now writes that he wants to increase the total number of employees. So not much will change for the employees.
Electric car maker Tesla’s total workforce is expected to grow over the next twelve months. Tesla boss Elon Musk announced this on Twitter. “The total number of employees will increase, but the workforce should remain pretty much the same,” Musk wrote in response to an unverified Twitter message.
In an internal email to the authorities Musk wrote on ThursdayHe has a “very bad feeling” about economic growth, and so Tesla should cut its workforce by about ten percent. In another email to employees on Friday, Musk said Tesla would cut the workforce by 10 percent because the company was “excessively staffed in several areas.” However, the number of “hourly employees” will increase. On Wall Street, Tesla lost up to 9.2 percent during Friday.
At the end of 2021, the company employed approximately 100,000 people worldwide. The carmaker is currently ramping up production at its new plant in Grunheide, Germany, and has advertised hundreds of jobs. There are nearly 5,000 open Tesla jobs worldwide on the LinkedIn job platform, from salespeople in Tokyo to mechatronics technicians in Berlin to IT specialists in Palo Alto.
