Tonight marks Detroit’s 54th annual fireworks display, and General Motors employees who spend their work days in the Renaissance Center have constantly enjoyed the best seats of the show year in and year out. But not this year. This year the company has told its 5,000 employees who work in the Renaissance Center to leave the building by 3 p.m., unless they have a business reason for being there.
“This year, there has been some back and forth over what the best plan is to manage the crowds,” said Ryndee Carney, the company’s manager of business media strategy to The Detroit Free Press. “As a part of that plan, GM made the decision to strongly encourage employees who do not have a business need in the building to work from a remote location as needed.”
Sounds like somebody doesn’t like fireworks. Or fun.
