Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer caused a media stir in 2013 when she asked her employees to come “back to the office.” Her edict created a great deal of speculation about her intent. Was it because she didn’t trust that her employees were working? Or was it a strong signal to her employees about her belief that people need to come together in a physical place to be more collaborative and innovative?
In our work with leading organizations around the world, we find leaders nodding their heads in agreement with Mayer because they are worried about an increasingly recognized issue that has bottom-line impact: employee engagement.
