The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged business in profound ways, impacting every industry, company and employee. As self-isolation and working from home become part of our daily lives, businesses and their leaders have had to find ever more creative means of delivering on customer commitments while caring for the well-being of employees.
The news trending in the last couple of days is that Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer announced, in an internal memo, that the company will no longer allow telecommuting. As a result, Yahoo employees with work-from-home arrangements will be required to work out from a company office. The memo was leaked by a very irked employee and sparked debate on the pros and cons of working from home.
