Wow, talk about a big move. For those of you that have not heard, Yahoo CEO Marrisa Mayer is making all their remote employees work out of a Yahoo office or quit. Bold move. A lot of businesses have embraced WfH as a way to attract employees or to keep employees who are looking for a change. It takes the right environment and the right teammate to make it work. Communication is always an issue. I have seen two developers sitting side-by-side trade emails all day rather than talk to each other. Yahoo is apparetnly willing to risk losing some good employees in favor of increasing face-to-face communication.
Here are a couple of links regarding Yahoo, and one from a panel discussion by some entrepaneurs.
