As professionals demand work flexibility, more and more U.S. companies are giving employees the opportunity to work from home.
Since 2005, telecommuting has increased 103% nationally. Twenty-three percent of U.S. workers now do at least some of their work from home — up from 19 percent in 2003, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. There are currently 3.3 million workers in the U.S. that work from home full time and many more interested in this type of work flexibility.
FlexJobs analyzed recent remote job listings to determine the companies that posted the most opportunities.
The list of companies actively hiring represents a variety of industries — from health care to technology. Jobs being hired for include consultant, instructor, analyst, marketing manager, nurse practitioner, client service representative and software engineer.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the metro cities with the highest work-from-home rates were San Francisco, Atlanta, Phoenix, Seattle, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Miami, Dallas and Boston.
“From baby boomers to millennials, working from home is the most in-demand type of work flexibility job seekers are interested in, and companies need to recognize that or they’re going to lose talent, ” said Sara Sutton Fell, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “In fact, 68 percent of recent college graduates said of all company policies, the ability to work remotely has the most positive impact on their interest in an employer. It is a trend that is here to stay.”
Between January 1st and December 31st, these were the top 25 employers with the most available remote job positions.
