Yahoo! (YHOO) CEO Mayer Wants Remote Employees to Become Less So

February 22, 2013 3:55 PM EST Send to a Friend
Yahoo! (Nasdaq: YHOO) CEO Marissa Mayer is shaking things up once again.

According to AllThingsD, Mayer is making employees that work remotely -- albeit from a home or different office where Yahoo! doesn't have one -- to now work at company facilities. She expects employees to either comply or assumes they have quit.

ATD said it received email from angry employees who were initially hired under the assumption they would be able to work with more flexibility.

It's not clear what the motive is behind the move. Maybe Mayer wants a little more accountability? Maybe she wants a tighter-knit Yahoo! staff?

In any case, its more likely than not that Yahoo! will lose some good people over this. But, with Mayer planning to revamp the entire company to make it more competitive, it's a risk she's willing to take.

Yahoo! is up 1.8 percent into the close Friday.
