Now we hear that employees who prefer or need to work from home may face a type of bias that could leave them behind.
In one study, the at-home workers were half as likely as their office counterparts to get a promotion – and promotions often mean raises so there is a hidden economic danger.
By the way, that was true even though the remote workers were 13% more productive making more calls per minute in their travel agency jobs and taking fewer breaks.
As we return to work, remote bias is a challenge that will have to be faced.
Virtual facetime will be even more important.
Finding ways to be present in person may be helpful.
To avoid the stress that will surely come from working at home at a disadvantage to those returning to the office, a plan to compensate for distance by making yourself more familiar is a sensible step.
