Tesla Adds 20,000 New Employees to its Workforce

During a data presentation to the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, popularly known as the SEC, Tesla has confirmed that its workforce reaches 70,757 full-time employees.

The 10K SEC document filed by the Palo Alto, California-based US states that “as of December 31, 2020, our full-time count of our employees and those of our subsidiaries worldwide was 70,757.”

According to the document: “To date, we have not experienced any work stoppages as a result of labor disputes, and we consider that our relationship with our employees is good.”

For Tesla, “key human capital objectives in running our business include attracting, developing and retaining the best talent while embedding the principles and practices of diversity, fairness, and inclusion in our core values.”

The figure shows a leap forward in the number of workers compared to 2019, when the figure stood at 48,016.

These figures do not consider the tens of thousands of jobs that the two new factories that Tesla is building in Europe and the United States will bring with them.

When Giga Berlin and Giga Texas go online in 2021, it may be likely that the North American electric car maker could reach 100,000 employees before the end of this year.

The reality is that, the delay of many manufacturers in embracing electric mobility could threaten jobs, due to a lack of business strategy. The companies that are tackling the phenomenon of electric mobility are demanding new employees from a never before seen rhythm.

In this race to create new jobs, Tesla is not alone. Rivian, Lucid Motors, Lordstown Motors, and others are rolling out new factories, filling up with new workers.
