Working from home will no longer be an option. At least, if you work for Yahoo!.
The company had been in the headlines these days because its CEO has decided that it is in the best interest of their company to no longer allow working from home to be an option. People are in an uproar for a few reasons.
They feel Yahoo!’s CEO is making it harder for women in the workplace who actually benefit from being able to take their work home.
People also have an issue with Yahoo!’s CEO because she is a woman and a new mom at that. There’s this feeling that she should understand how hard it is to be a working mom.
The CEO Marissa Mayer, is the same woman who took the Yahoo! gig while very pregnant and barely took any time off after having get baby. I believe the issue people had then was that because she was taking so little time that it would make it harder on other women in her company. The fear is that her expectation would be for people to be as committed to work as she is.
Well, I think in some way those fears are coming true
What do you think of the “no work from home” stance? I think working from home can be a good thing but it can also be distracting. There are so many things I need to do around the house it can be overwhelming to work from home.
