Working From Home Jobs are top of mind for Ohioans: Creating jobs, keeping jobs and balancing work with life. Yahoo this year touched a nerve by ordering its tele-commuting employees to return to the office. Communication and collaboration can't be done from home, the company said. But legions of work-from-home employees, nationwide and in our region, disagree. Monday at 9 on the Sound of Ideas, an encore presentation of our discussion about whether working from home works.
