With the gall of someone who simply wants to make their company better, Marissa Mayer’s policy that eliminates the work-at-home culture from the Yahoo employees’ tool belt, has created a stir in the industry. Why? Looks like it’s because people are a little over-reactive, bored, dimwitted or all of the above, quite honestly.
Appearing to acknowledge the uproar over its recent move to order telecommuting workers back to the office, Yahoo! issued a brief statement Tuesday to assert that it wasn’t offering a broad judgment on the practice of working from home.
“This isn’t a broad industry view on working from home — this is about what is right for Yahoo right now,” said the statement from a Yahoo spokesperson.
