Report: Telecommuters Missing Out on Raises and Promotions?

Brand X Pictures/Thinkstock(DAVIS, Calif.) -- Telecommuting is an attractive option for many workers. They don't have to face a rush hour, commute or play office politics. Or do they? A new study finds there may be a hidden down side to being invisible at the office.

A new study, published in the MIT Sloan Management Review, finds people who don't put in face time with the boss, get smaller raises and poorer work reviews.  Researchers at U.C. Davis found "out of sight is out of mind," since bosses were more likely to rate employees they saw as dependable and those who put in overtime as ambitious.

But they also found, at-home workers can create a productive image by returning office emails immediately, and being extra visible when they do come into the office.

Retail Workers for Apple Are Getting Pay Raises

Apple(NEW YORK) – After a company review period earlier this year, Apple Inc. has decided to raise the wages of its U.S. retail store employees by as much as 25%, according to The Wall Street Journal.  

U.S. full-time staffers who are paid between $9 to $15 an hour for retail sales and $20 an hour for the “Genius” tech support have had meetings with their managers as early as last week to discuss their work performance; raises would be implemented in the middle of July.

“Sales at Apple's retail stores have more than doubled, to about $14 billion last year from nearly $6.7 billion in 2009,” reports The Wall Street Journal.
