re: Yahoo Flap: Should IT Leaders Ban Work At Home?
So, if this is a necessary move to create the needed culture, sense of urgency, creativity, collaboration, etc., that can only come from face-to-face interaction, then it has to truly apply across the board, correct? By that logic, no more outsourcing jobs to India or any other offshore location. I don't know to what level Yahoo! may have offshore operations, but isn't it just as important for anyone performing work for Yahoo! from Bangalore, Mumbai, etc. to be physically present in the California office?
I'm thinking those of us in IT might want to support this move at all companies. It may not be convenient for those who have to resume a commute to the office, but it should bring thousands of IT jobs back onshore for American IT workers. Right, business executives?
