  7. 7. Job Design & HR Issues at Yahoo YAHOO! PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION — DO NOT FORWARDYahoos,Over the past few months, we have introduced a number of great benefits and tools to make us more productive,efficient and fun. With the introduction of initiatives like FYI, Goals and PB&J, we want everyone to participate inour culture and contribute to the positive momentum. From Sunnyvale to Santa Monica, Bangalore to Beijing — Ithink we can all feel the energy and buzz in our offices.To become the absolute best place to work, communication and collaboration will be important, so we need to beworking side-by-side. That is why it is critical that we are all present in our offices. Some of the best decisionsand insights come from hallway and cafeteria discussions, meeting new people, and impromptu team meetings.Speed and quality are often sacrificed when we work from home. We need to be one Yahoo!, and that starts withphysically being together.Beginning in June, we’re asking all employees with work-from-home arrangements to work in Yahoo! offices. Ifthis impacts you, your management has already been in touch with next steps. And, for the rest of us whooccasionally have to stay home for the cable guy, please use your best judgment in the spirit of collaboration.Being a Yahoo isn’t just about your day-to-day job, it is about the interactions and experiences that are onlypossible in our offices.Thanks to all of you, we’ve already made remarkable progress as a company — and the best is yet to come.Jackie ( 7
