I have read with interest the comments made upon the Yahoo! message about homeworking by HR head Jackie Reses. It is the 2nd paragraph that intrigues me most:
This tends to fly in the face of the overwhelming evidence I have found from clients I have worked with, expert views I have read, and my own first-hand experience when I was homeworking at BT.
My recent post ‘Great examples of Digital Workplace productivity savings‘ showed clear benefits gained by individuals, other employees, and their organisations from homeworking. In the comments there is more detail.
It reminds of the story about King Canute, seated on his throne with the waves lapping around his feet. “Go back, sea!” he commanded time and again, but the tide continued as expected.
I wonder if in 2014 the policy will still be the same and homeworking will be a thing of the past at Yahoo!?
