TOKYO -- Yahoo Japan will allow its 8,000 employees to work from anywhere in the country and even commute by plane when they need to come to the office.

The expanded remote work program will enable the subsidiary of SoftBank-backed Z Holdings to "hire talented people regardless of where they live," the company said in a statement Wednesday. The program will also "promote diversity by allowing employees to choose the way they work according to their different values," it said.
