The article I read about talks about the benefits a company can experience by having people work in office. The topic came up because Yahoo’s chief executive, Marissa Mayer, has recently eliminated Yahoo’s work at home policy. The main benefits that article talked about was enhanced creativity and innovation due to the increased interacton among employees. The article also talked about benefits such as free food and snacks, having an on-site gym, on-site haircuts, etc. These benefits help to create a positive work environment that encourages employees to spend more time at work and to be more productive. Creativity and innovation are critical for economic success so having policies in the workplace that encourage interaction among employees is logical.
