"Companies can attract and retain the best young talent by offering flexible work opportunities and it benefits them as well, with studies showing teleworkers are more productive," said Sara Sutton Fell, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs
Boulder, CO (PRWEB) June 07, 2016
Telecommuting has grown 103 percent since 2005 and approximately eighty to ninety percent of the workforce would like to telework at least part-time. Work-life balance (81 percent), family (56 percent), time savings (56 percent), and commute stress (48 percent) are the top reasons people seek flexible work arrangements, such as remote positions. To help job seekers interested in finding remote jobs, FlexJobs recently analyzed the remote job listings of over 40,000 companies in its database to determine which companies have been recruiting for the most telecommuting positions in recent months.
Between March 1–May 31, 2016 the top 25 employers with the most available remote job positions in FlexJobs’ database were:
1. UnitedHealth Group
9. Connections Education
12. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
13. Haynes & Company
14. Anthem, Inc.
15. University of Maryland University College
17. Western Governor’s University
18. Thermo Fisher Scientific
20. Achieve Test Prep
21. Wells Fargo
24. LanguageLine Solutions
25. Red Hat
“Job seekers consistently report that telecommuting is the most desired form of flexible work, with many willing to take a pay cut, forfeit vacation time or give up matching retirement savings plans for a telecommuting work arrangement,” said Sara Sutton Fell, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “In fact, millennials, which now comprise the largest generation in the workforce, placed flexible working ahead of other priorities such as professional development training, reputation of the companies’ leaders and a sense of purpose when evaluating a job prospect. Companies can attract and retain the best young talent by offering flexible work opportunities and it benefits them as well, with studies showing teleworkers are more productive and less likely to take time off work than their office counterparts.”
Healthcare, technology and education are the most well-represented industries on the list, but others such as finance and research are also included. The remote job listings at these companies are equally diverse, such as business analyst, product manager, developer, teacher, director of communications, market researcher, and RN case manager.
Many of the companies listed above were also top employers for remote-friendly jobs on an annual basis, as well, having been included in FlexJobs’ 2016 Top 100 Companies for Remote Jobs. California, Texas, New York and and Florida were among the top 10 states with the most telecommuting jobs in 2015.
