Company wants staff using the same devices as its users.
When Yahoo! CEO Marissa Meyer joined the company back in July, she knew she had a big job ahead of her. One of the changes she's implementing is a new program called 'Yahoo! Smart Phones, Smart Fun' and will see every single Yahoo! employee receive a brand new top-of-the-line smartphone for free. Business Insider says the news was confirmed via an internal memo and the program will cover both full time and part time employees. The idea behind this show of generosity is that Yahoo! wants staff using what Yahoo! users are using.
BI reports that employees will have a choice of five different top-end smartphones, including Apple's newly-announced but as yet unreleased iPhone 5. If you're working for Yahoo! and you're not an Apple fan, you can choose Samsung's Galaxy S III, an HTC One X, an HTC EVO 4G LTE, or Nokia's Lumia 920.
