Practical Work-From-Home Policies That Actually Work
Now that the dust has settled a bit about Marissa Meyer’s controversial “no working from home” policy at Yahoo, I thought I’d weigh in. Many companies provide work-from-home options. Employees love it.
But many managers struggle with it. They ask me about this all the time–How do you optimize motivation AND productivity?
There are two important thoughts here: First, individuals can be more productive working at home, but teams can’t. Teams are always LESS productive when people are not together. Second, productivity declines, more often than not, because management is unclear on expectations and measures–it’s not just that people at home are slacking off.
