Yahoo! Eliminates Work-From-Home for Its Employees

Yahoo! (NASDAQ: YHOO  ) has instituted a policy in which it is to eliminate the option of working from home for its employees, according to an internal memo from¬†Executive Vice President of People and Development Jackie Reses obtained and published by AllThingsD. The policy is to take effect starting in June.

In the memo, Yahoo! stressed the value of on-site collaboration. "To become the absolute best place to work, communication and collaboration will be important, so we need to be working side-by-side... Some of the best decisions and insights come from hallway and cafeteria discussions, meeting new people, and impromptu team meetings. Speed and quality are often sacrificed when we work from home," it reads.

    You would think since she was sitting on the Board of Directors at Wal*Mart before being appointed the CEO of that exclamation mark that she would have told that board that Wal*Mart's Global Procurement Office needs to be in Bentonville, AR and not in China....

    Ain't it a small world....

    Did you know she was born the last year America had a trade reckon Wal*Mart knew that when they put her on their board....

    Yeap! it's a small world and that little lady has no idea when it comes to the who or what....
