Yahoo! employees have been hit with a new policy, courtesy of CEO Marissa Mayer, that states that they can no longer work from home.

This is all according to a leaked internal memo issued Friday, and has be implemented for various reasons.

“Speed and quality are often sacrificed when we work from home,” says HR chief Jackie Reses.

“We need to be one Yahoo!, and that starts with physically being together.”

The changes begin in June, and company sources have suggested there will be little flexibility in the policy.

Is this a way to better productivity, or is this going to simply negatively affect employee morale?
