5 keys to creating a positive workplace
To put it mildly, things are not going well at Twitter these days. On top of a recent strike by its janitors, the organization is now under investigation by San Francisco building inspectors because of reports of office space being converted to bedrooms.
According to Forbes, new owner Elon Musk had parts of the building outfitted with “modest” bedrooms “featuring unmade mattresses, drab curtains and giant conference-room telepresence monitors.” There are between four and eight sleeping rooms per floor in the company’s San Francisco headquarters, according to CBS San Francisco.
Unfortunately for Twitter, private sleeping quarters in a commercial building isn’t allowed. And San Francisco Department of Building Inspection has promised to look into the matter, and possibly issue citations.
"We need to make sure the building is being used as intended,” said a San Francisco building inspector. “There are different building code requirements for residential buildings, including those being used for short-term stays. These codes make sure people are using spaces safely.”
Musk quickly tried to deflect blame and claimed that the city should be focusing on other issues rather than building codes.
