Musk says listening to music at work is ‘totally cool’ E! News UK
Tesla CEO Elon Musk said it’s “totally cool” if his employees listen to music at work as long as the coworkers around them are happy with their music choices. CNBC reported obtaining a pair of emails Musk sent to Tesla employees in the first week of October expressing his opinion on listening to music in the workplace.
“An associate just sent me a note asking if we could have an earpiece for music so the other ear can listen to safety issues. That’s fine with me,” Musk said in the letter. “Plus, the background music from the speakers is also totally cool as long as there is reasonable agreement among your colleagues about the music choices,” he added.
According to the report, Musk is known for his spontaneous mass communication, from rants on Twitter to “everyone” emails he sends to everyone at his EV company. The first said that listening to music at work with just one earpiece to listen to safety issues is OK. A second, tougher email reminded employees that there were only three options when Musk sends instructions: explain why he’s wrong, ask for further clarification. or run. At the time, Tesla had just announced record third quarter deliveries despite supply chain pressures including a chip shortage. (IANS / MBI)
