YAHOO CEO「6月までに在宅勤務制度撤廃。嫌なら辞めてOK」


ヤフーのマリッサ・メイヤーCEOは、全社員にあてたメールによるメッセージで、同社が続けてきた一部社員の在宅勤務制度を撤廃し、6月までに全社員にオフィス勤務を義務付けることをアナウンスした。突発的な家庭の事情などについては、今後も認めるが、基本はオフィス勤務として、チームのコミュニケーションを高め生産性をあげるのが狙い。同CEOはこれまでにも、生産性を高めるために様々な取り組みを行なっており、その中の調査で在宅勤務の社員とそのチームが必ずしも高い生産性を出していない事が分かったという。

メッセージの一部



To become the absolute best place to work, communication and collaboration will be important, so we need to be working side-by-side. That is why it is critical that we are all present in our offices. Some of the best decisions and insights come from hallway and cafeteria discussions, meeting new people, and impromptu team meetings. Speed and quality are often sacrificed when we work from home. We need to be one Yahoo!, and that starts with physically being together.

Beginning in June, we’re asking all employees with work-from-home arrangements to work in Yahoo! offices. If this impacts you, your management has already been in touch with next steps. And, for the rest of us who occasionally have to stay home for the cable guy, please use your best judgment in the spirit of collaboration. Being a Yahoo isn’t just about your day-to-day job, it is about the interactions and experiences that are only possible in our offices.
