It is fast becoming the memo heard round the corporate world — and it’s sending shockwaves through basement offices and Wi-Fi-wired coffee shops everywhere.
The memo, of course, is the one sanctioned by Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer and signed by the company’s HR head Jackie Reses, which told “Yahoos” that their days of working at home were numbered. Literally. The company stated that by June 1 every employee needs to be reporting to a Yahoo office.
“To become the absolute best place to work, communication and collaboration will be important, so we need to be working side-by-side…” the memo states. “Speed and quality are often sacrificed when we work from home. We need to be one Yahoo!, and that starts with physically being together.”
