Tesla – It’s Electric!

On Monday, we had the opportunity to visit the Tesla factory in Fremont, California. Tesla focuses on helping alleviate carbon footprints through products that use sustainable energy, most famously, their electric cars. Our tour guide, Jedd, gave us an extensive overview of the automaker and how it keeps itself at such a high standard. The factory was no exception: it was a state-of-the-art facility with incredible technology that helps bring their innovative designs to life. We were able to witness each step of the assembly process and were absolutely blown away by the sheer amount of machinery and power it takes to create a made-to-order luxury vehicle.

The biggest takeaway we had from our visit to Tesla was how the desire for perfection has permeated throughout the company. Everyone in the factory is dedicated to bringing about Tesla’s mission of “accelerating the world’s transition to sustainable energy” in whatever way they can. This starts with the employees’ friendly and transparent manner in their interactions with one another, which allows them all to effectively help the company succeed.  If everyone within an enterprise is focused on the same goal, there is no limit to what they can achieve.
