Morale at Yahoo! Improving with Panama

Search Marketing    

I know personally from acquaintances that work there that morale has been a problem within Yahoo!, though not as widely as perhaps perceived from the outside. This AP story says that Panama (and impliedly the upbeat, related PR) has improved morale internally across the board.

Employee morale is a key intangible. Positive morale will stem the loss of personnel and may help productivity too. I had been told awhile ago by one Yahoo! employee that during the reorg uncertainty he and co-workers were spending “hours” discussing and speculating about all the internal moves and maneuvers.

Yahoo!’s stock price has been boosted by all the good news, but the test will come in Q3 (according to Sue Decker) when the bottom line will supposedly be (positively) affected. The system will have to “prove value” then.
