Forty-two percent of employees who work from home believe their in-office counterparts get more recognition they they do. That was among  the findings of a poll conducted by Fenton, Mo.-based Maritz Research, a division of Maritz Inc.
    The online survey of 1,000 full-time U.S. employees, including both off-site and on-site workers, also revealed that 71 percent of home-based employees find intangible rewards such as praise and recognition “very important” or “extremely important.” And while 40 percent of off-site workers said their supervisors frequently thank them for a job well done, 24 percent reported that their bosses seldom or never express their appreciation.
    In other findings, 43 percent of those working at home would be “very likely” or “extremely likely” to leave  their current company if they found a position elsewhere with similar responsibilities and pay.
