/// Is Yahoo’s Human Resources Department Next to Get a Mayer Shakeup?
According to sources close to the situation, active new CEO Marissa Mayer has turned her focus on the troubled Silicon Valley Internet giant’s human resources unit. It is now headed by David Windley (pictured here), whose tenure has included a huge brain drain and a series of layoffs at Yahoo, as well as an ongoing series of top leaders. Yahoo, as has become its practice, has not returned an email seeking comment. Some in the company think a big shakeup is coming, which could include Windley’s departure. He could stay too, but it is clear his new boss will be in his business more than previous leaders. That is probably no surprise in the wake of the hiring of Mayer. The former Google exec has instituted a series of quickfire changes across the company related to its culture and recruiting, which have basically boiled down to making a Yahoo version of the search giant. While free food and better swag have attracted attention, Mayer has also plunged into the recruiting arena aggressively. She is now reviewing that all new hires personally — another steal, um , borrow, from Google — and has also begin to require a much more stringent set of hiring standards
