Yahoo is responding to criticism of a decision to ban employees from working at home, saying it’s the right move for the company.

“This isn’t a broad industry view on working from home — this is about what is right for Yahoo, right now,” said a statement from a company spokesman late Tuesday.

The no-work-at-home policy has prompted widespread criticism since it was unveiled in an e-mail to employees on Monday from Jackie Reses, the new head of human resources at the company who was brought in by CEO Marissa Mayer.

“To become the absolute best place to work, communication and collaboration will be important, so we need to be working side-by-side,” said the e-mail. “That is why it is critical that we are all present in our offices.”
