Boulder, CO (PRWEB) January 06, 2014
FlexJobs has just released a list of the top 100 companies most likely to hire for telecommuting and remote jobs in 2014, based on analysis of their database of over 25,000 companies and their job posting history. Many of these companies are leaders in their fields and their successes are highlighting the way current remote workforce technology can help their companies grow and thrive.
"The great news is remote work options are – and have been – on the upswing within companies. But the bad news is that it is still really difficult for most job-seekers to find these legitimate job opportunities amidst the scam, junk, and ads mixed in on most job boards out there. With this list, we want to help guide job-seekers to some of the leading, trusted companies that have shown that they incorporate telecommuting in their hiring practices," says Sara Sutton Fell, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs. "We hope this list can be a useful tool to help job-seekers know which companies to keep an eye on during their job search."
The top industries offering telecommuting arrangements include healthcare, information technology, education, nonprofit and philanthropy, and sales and marketing, according to the analysis. Job titles like Sales Representative, Senior Analyst, Nurse Case Manager, Account Executive, Web or Software Developer, Accountant, and Virtual Teacher are some of the most commonly found when searching for jobs that offer remote work.
"We are definitely noticing the trend of more companies who truly embrace flexibility," shared Kelly Kirby, Director of Research. "And even though we've researched thousands of jobs, we are still surprised daily by some of the positions we come across."
Overall, 2014 is poised to be the best year yet for professionals interested in remote, telecommuting, and work-from-home jobs, and congratulations to these employers who are leading the charge.
