Best Buy nixes work-from-home opportunities
Just weeks after Yahoo’s Marissa Mayer sparked backlash with mom’s across the nation after ending a work-at-home program, it appears the world’s largest electronics retailer is doing just the same. The Minneapolis reported this morning that the BB retailer is nixing its work from home program, something they started way back in 2005.
Best Buy originally held one of the most progressive work from home programs in the country, being the first to ever have one in 05′. The company back then — promoted the opportunity as long as workers produced excellent results on and off duty.
“When you’re in a turnaround situation, it truly is all hands on deck,” a Best Buy spokesman told CNET
