• Telecommuting Over for Yahoo Employees

    February 25th, 2013 by admin Categories: Blogs Tags: , , , , , ,

    Right in time for $5 a gallon gas…According to BusinessWeek:

    Jackie Reses, Yahoo!’s executive vice president of people and development, announced that Yahoo employees would no longer be able to work from home. “Speed and quality are often sacrificed when we work from home,” She then went on to explain that all employees with “work-from-home arrangements” will have to start coming into the office every day…

    “What’s really troubling about this is that a technology company can’t figure out how to collaborate remotely,” says Kate Lister, president of the Telework Research Center.

    In fact, what’s most telling about this decision is that it highlights Yahoo’s apparent inability to keep tabs on its employees unless they’re physically at their desks.

    I concur. Sounds like something a government agency might do. Full article here. Next thing, they’ll confiscate their cell phones…heh
