Remote workers 35% more likely to be fired than those who return to office: 'Out of sight, out of mind'
Briefly

New data shows that full-time remote workers were 35% more likely to be laid off than their in-office peers in 2023, the Wall Street Journal reported.
"When a hiring manager gets news they have to cut 10% of the staff, it's easier to put someone on the list you don't have a close personal relationship with," Andy Challenger, the senior vice president at the outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas, told the Journal, attributing the emotional distance to the difficulty of establishing rapport virtually.
George Penn, managing vice president at the advisory firm Gartner, says this comes as no surprise. A 2021 survey from the firm revealed that managers and execs think of in-office employees as higher performers.
"Managers believe employees who work remote are lower performers than those that come to the office," Brian Kropp, the chief of human resources research at Gartner, previously told The Post.
