Working from home may reduce commute time, save money, and shrink an employee’s carbon footprint. But it can also be a hazard to career advancement, a new study shows.
Futurity reports that In a pair of studies–one involving in-depth interviews with office workers and another using a behavioral experiment–Kimberly Elsbach, professor in the Graduate School of Management at University of California, Davis and colleagues found that being present at the workplace gives an employee an important edge.
When bosses and co-workers see an employee at work, they tend to think more highly of that person. And their evaluation is even more favorable if the sighting is after normal business hours.
Details of the study are published in the June issue of the journal Human Relations.
