People who know me know of my current
in Yahoo!'s recent changes to their telework policy.
I just can't wrap my mind around a good reason for it.
It's not about productivity (studies show that many people are more productive when they're not in the office). It's not really about collaboration; most people in offices talk a lot but that doesn't lead to great new products. It can't really be about a fraction of a fraction of the employees who both worked from home and also "hid". That's too small a number to care about.
And then, someone I was chatting with in Twitter made a comment that might, actually, explain things:
... [Marissa] needs to do this to weed out folks not totally committed to Yahoo!.
Think about it.
