More employees in a year: Musk: Number of Tesla employees remains the same

With his announcement that he wants to cut ten percent of the jobs at Tesla, Elon Musk has recently alienated many investors. In a short tweet, the billionaire now writes that he wants to increase the total number of employees. So not much will change for the employees.

The total number of employees at the electric car manufacturer Tesla is expected to increase over the next twelve months. This was announced by Tesla boss Elon Musk on Twitter. "The total number of employees will increase, but the number of employees should remain pretty much the same," Musk wrote in a reply to an unverified Twitter message that "predicted" an increase in the company's headcount.

In an internal email to executives on Thursday, Musk wrote that he had a "super bad feeling" about economic development and that Tesla would therefore have to reduce its workforce by around ten percent. In another email to employees on Friday, Musk said Tesla would reduce headcount by 10% because the company was "overstaffed in many areas." However, the number of "hourly employees" will increase. On Wall Street, Tesla lost up to 9.2 percent over the course of Friday.

At the end of 2021, the company employed around 100,000 people worldwide. The carmaker is currently ramping up production at its new plant in Grünheide, Germany, and has advertised hundreds of jobs. Worldwide there are around 5,000 open Tesla jobs on the LinkedIn job platform, from salespeople in Tokyo to mechatronics technicians in Berlin to IT specialists in Palo Alto.
