“What’s more, it’s seen as beneficial if less productive staff chose to leave because of the policy, they added.”

Just reminding you of this …

But what I do wonder is whether there is an under current at Yahoo along the lines of nobody really understanding what people are doing and this is a clumsy way to start to examine the solutions ?

Just like outsourcing – working from home works very very well when you are totally on top of what results are expected in return for a sum of money. The process is not time dependant – it is value dependant. I give you x – you give me value of y – and we both have our own equation for whether that is a good deal.

From here

I do wonder if it is management that have no clue as to what they are doing
