The Performance Improvement Blog

Marissa Mayer , new CEO of Yahoo, received notoriety recently when she instituted a new policy that ended employees working from home.

Hire the ‘loud’?

The recent story of Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo, struck me as an interesting case. Both of these would be good outcomes for Yahoo.
