FlexJobs and 1 Million for Work Flexibility celebrate notable advancements in flexible work; highlight 250 companies with the most flexible jobs

"The landscape of flexible work has evolved dramatically since I founded FlexJobs, and it's important to celebrate how much progress companies have made towards work flexibility in recent years," said Sara Sutton Fell, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs

To celebrate the progress of work flexibility in recent years, FlexJobs has just released the FlexJobs 250: Top Companies for Flexible Jobs, a list based on an analysis of over 40,000 companies and their flexible job posting histories in FlexJobs’ database between October 1, 2013 and October 1, 2016. A “flexible job” is defined as a professional-level job that has a telecommuting, flexible schedule, part-time, or freelance component.

There has been significant growth in both the availability of flexible jobs in the past three years--FlexJobs experienced a 75 percent increase in the number of flexible jobs posted in its database--and in the awareness of why work flexibility is important. In fact, the creation of the FlexJobs 250 list in honor of the three year anniversary of 1 Million for Work Flexibility, an advocacy initiative launched by FlexJobs’ founder Sara Sutton Fell to help encourage anyone who wants or needs work flexibility to easily show that they think flexible work options are important.

Technological advancements, such as Wi-Fi, smartphones, cloud-based technologies and new collaboration tools and applications, along with generational changes, have driven the rise of flexibility in the workforce. Today, flexibility is a top element workers look for in a job, with the majority of workers willing to change jobs, change careers, or give up a promotion to achieve better work-life balance.

“The landscape of flexible work has evolved dramatically since I founded FlexJobs, and it’s important to celebrate how much progress companies have made towards work flexibility in recent years," said Sara Sutton Fell, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “Professional, viable flexible jobs are now available across a wide variety of industries and at all career-levels, which is due both to companies hearing their employees’ demands for work flexibility, as well as employers themselves recognizing the many benefits.”
