Teeth make smiles, and smiles make sales - Unidentified Harrods person in Alan Sugar's The Apprentice
YAHOO'S NEW HEAD HONCHO Carol Bartz, who has been jingling her spurs in an attempt to shake things up at Internet search also-ran Yahoo, has offered a $1,000 bounty out of her own substantial paycheck, to encourage Yahooglers to snitch on their colleagues who leak emails to the evil press.
The problem is, the news came to light in a leaked email.... d'oh!
Bartz, referring to the mole who forwarded her first pan-company missive to a member of the great unwashed media machine, said, "I hope whoever did it, feels bad enough to come forward and resign." Probably best not to hold your breath on that one, Carol.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the new head girl at the company which once ruled the Internet (until those pesky Google kids turned up in town and started meddling), also wants people to buck their ideas up and start getting to meetings on time... and to stop using the word 'silo'. We didn't realise Yahoo had much use for grain storage but we guess everyone needs to diversify in these troubled times.
In an entirely unrelated move Jill Nash, one of the company's highest-ranking female employees, is moving on to pastures new, following in the footsteps of former company President Susan Decker who cleared her desk the moment she heard Bartz had got the gig. µ
