Working from home could lead to discrimination and staff missing out on promotion, study finds

Working from home could lead to Britons losing out on career opportunities and create discrimination in offices, a new study warns today.

So-called ‘hybrid working’ models which give staff the flexibility to work between home and the office could be ‘dragging businesses back decades’, according to a team of business psychologists at the Cambridgeshire-based firm, OE Cam.

Researchers claim people working from home are missing out on opportunities given to their colleagues in the office, and are less likely to be given a promotion.
