Yahoo employees banned from home working
2 March 2013
Yahoo’s chief executive has banned employees from working from home, emphasising that side-by-side working is critical for communication and collaboration.
The new rule will affect hundreds of staff who currently work remotely, as they are forced to relocate to their nearest Yahoo office by June.
The email sent out by HR head, Jackie Reses, says: “To become the absolute best place to work, communication and collaboration will be important, so we need to be working side-by-side. That is why it is critical that we are all present in our offices.
“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. We need to be one Yahoo!, and that starts with physically being together.”
The memo was marked as confidential and employees were specifically instructed not to forward it, however allthingsd.com claim they were emailed it by many disgruntled employees.
More Flexibility in the workplace with Borer's FUSION T&A System.
Borer's Time and Attendance system is designed to offer employees more flexibility in the workplace. With more and more emphasis being placed on work life balance, organisations must define procedures to support employees.
One way to do this is by implementing flexitime by providing staff with flexible working hours to accommodate those working part-time, family priorities, covering absences and job sharing.
