Earlier this year, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer announced that she was banning working from home, saying it was critical for the business to have everyone in the office.

"To become the absolute best place to work, communication and collaboration will be important, so we need to be working side-by-side," she told staff in a memo. The announcement came in for some pretty harsh criticism - particularly when it emerged that Mayer had had a nursery built in her office to ease her own problems with work-life balance.
