No more working at home…for some of the big guys. First Yahoo, now Best Buy. Who’s next? Is the privilege of working at home coming to an end?

Companies who hire home workers are not terribly plentiful, but they do exist. By now you’ve probably heard of the Yahoo memo that prohibits employees from working at home

Hi Kathleen,

I think the Yahoo decision was either a very special case or a wrong move. Either way, it's unlikely to be repeated by any company valuing an outsourced approach to work. They already know the value of their company culture and won't likely change it just because one or two large companies have decided it's a bad idea.

Hi Heather,

You're so right. Those companies who have a solid reputation of providing the work at home benefit will not stray from that. Thank you for stopping by.
