While transportation managers and ecologists praise the work at home movement for its fuel savings, Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer says it's hurting creativity.
Mayer, whose company pioneered the concept of having the world of information at your fingertips, now orders those fingers to come to the office fulltime by June. Mayer joined Yahoo! last April after reaching the higher airs of Google.
She set an example against working from home by taking only two weeks of maternity leave after giving birth to her first child, son Macallister Bogue, on Sept. 30. She shocked some by saying that raising her first child was "easy."
Now she's cracked the whip for Yahoo's 14,000 employees, saying they are missing the creativity and water cooler collaboration that comes with working in an office.
That could be mean a lot more shuttle buses joining the dozens of Google ones on area highways.
Mayer is the fourth CEO at Yahoo! in four years.
