Where are you most productive - home or office?

Posted: Updated:

It appears the new CEO of Yahoo wants her employees to show up at the office instead of telecommuting from home.

In a report on TheHuffingtonpost.com, CEO Marissa Mayer issued a memo saying communication and collaboration are important, and employees need to work side-by-side at the office.

The report says Mayer wants the new policy to begin in June. Some employees are angered by the move, saying they took the Yahoo job due to the company's flexible work hours.

Several studies show employee productivity increases when they work from home, according to the report.
