Yahoo! CEO bans working from home - how important is this benefit to Canadian 
employees?

TORONTO, Feb. 27, 2013 /CNW/ - Yesterday Yahoo! Inc. announced a significant 
change in its workplace policy mandating that all of its employees, including 
those with existing work-from-home arrangements, must now work from the office 
setting. 
Yahoo! Inc.'s decision to enforce attendance conflicts with current trends 
that allow for greater employee freedom to decide when and how they work. 
How would Canadians react if their employers removed the option to work from 
home? Not well, according to a recent survey from Hays Canada, a national 
recruitment consultancy, which found that more than a quarter (27 per cent) of 
Canadian employers want to add "ability to work from home" as a benefit in 
2013. 
Rowan O'Grady, President of Hays Canada, is available to comment on current 
workplace trends including: 


    --  The most prevalent benefits being offered by Canadian companies
        (flexible work hours, training, extended health benefits, etc.)
    --  Why companies should consider offering competitive benefit
        packages as a means of attracting the best talent (according to
        the survey, 78 per cent of organizations will experience
        moderate to extreme challenges recruiting top talent).
