The only working from home Yahoo employees will be doing is looking for another job.

The company's remote employees have until June to take a shower and come into the office, according to a company-wide mandate put out by Marissa Mayer, the Business Insider reports.

If they don't like it, they are encouraged to leave, according to reports.

Mayer wasn't interviewed for the story. Her tweets on Monday, or over the weekend, revealed nothing of the new come-to-work saga.

The remote workers simply aren't productive enough for Mayer's liking, according to an anonymous insider, who added that the company itself is bloated with too much infrastructure and too many workers whose duties are unclear. Employees were able to effectively "hide" for far too long.

And "These people aren't just Yahoo customer support reps," Insider reports. "They're in all divisions, from marketing to engineering."

The move not only signals an era of change at the company that brings it more in line with Google and other rivals but also allows Mayer to cut staff — some spurned telecommuters will quit — and add employees who will not only work from the office but also think more in-like with her philosophy.
