YAHOO pulls plug on working from home
Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer has some employees up in arms after she put the kibosh on working remotely from home and is now calling all Yahoo staff to report to the office.
The move will only impact a small percentage of the company’s workforce, primarily customer service representatives or staffers who work in city’s where Yahoo does not have an office.
But the internal announcement on Friday has ruffled feathers as many employees say the flexible work arrangement is a key part of their job and will have a significant impact on their personal lives.
Though Yahoo will not publicly comment on the internal matter, employees disclosed the new HR policy to AllThingsD co-executive editor Kara Swisher.
The move is described as harsh since it requires employees to ‘either comply without exception or presumably quit.’
