marissa mayer  2007 Marissa Mayer Brings Free Lunch to Yahoo HQIt’s well-known that Yahoo‘s (NASDAQ:YHOO) new CEO Marissa Mayer — a former Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) executive — is an ace when it comes to products. It also looks like she knows a thing or two about morale boosting.

Mayer, who owns the herculean task of making a relic relevant, is implementing a few fun and “google-ish” strategies to foster a more collaborative working environment for her new employees, All Things D reports.

Here are a few changes that are in the works at the Sunnyvale, Calif., company.

  • Free lunch: Yahoo’s Silicon Valley employees can now enjoy free lunch at the company’s URL Cafe.
  • Weekly all-hands meetings: The company’s first all-hands meeting under Mayer was held last Friday, and sources tell All Things D that the meetings will happen weekly.
  • Updated work spaces: Mayer is reportedly working on revamping Yahoo’s office layout to increase the cool-factor and create a more collaborative working environment.
