This is an excerpt from The Office Snitch.
Marissa Mayer’s appointment as Yahoo’s latest CEO has fascinated me from the get go. Maybe it was the company’s failure over the last few years to hold on to a leader (Mayer is the company’s fifth CEO in five years) or the fact that she jumped ship from Google.
Either way, I’ve been keeping close tabs on her first few months as the captain of a struggling ship, lapping up every article or comment on her leadership attributes.
In her defence, I think she’s been doing a super job. Not only has she got Yahoo back in the limelight, but she has streamlined its organisation to run more effectively in an ever-increasing competitive market.
But the latest development to pop up on my news feed is probably one of the most interesting – and relevant one yet.
Business Insider is claiming Mayer vets every resume that comes through Yahoo’s purple doors to make sure the next hire is up to her standards. The same article reports Yahoo has 15,000 employees and is on a constant hunt for new people.
