Dell just-released 2018 CSR Report highlights their commitment to remote and flexible work; features video with FlexJobs CEO

“FlexJobs has been excited to unite with such a forward-thinking company to educate how remote work fits into the modern business world and can contribute to a company’s success, positively impact its employees, and benefit the broader community,” said Sara Sutton Fell, founder and CEO of FlexJobs

Remote work has grown 115% since 2005, and thousands of companies are actively recruiting more remote workers to join their workforces. The business benefits of remote work for companies are numerous: remote work can increase worker productivity, drive employee efficiency, boost morale, reduce employee turnover, decrease real estate costs and overhead, lead to greater employee engagement, increase the talent pool, and positively impact the environment. As the leaders in remote work, FlexJobs is proud to share how it has come together with Dell to advance remote and flexible work opportunities and educate both job seekers and other companies about the growth and diversity in today’s remote job marketplace.

“Over the past few years Dell has demonstrated a consistent appreciation for and dedication to incorporating remote work in its workplace strategy, modeling for other business how remote work can help large, global companies thrive by offering flexible work arrangements,” said Sara Sutton Fell, founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “FlexJobs has been excited to unite with such a forward-thinking company to educate how remote work fits into the modern business world and highlight the various ways its optimization can contribute to a company’s success, positively impact its employees, and benefit the broader community,” Sutton Fell concluded.

Given its positive impact on the environment, the company, and its people, flexible work options have always been a part of Dell’s corporate social responsibility plan. As of now, Dell has surpassed its goal in the 2020 Legacy of Good Plan to have 50% of its team members leveraging flexible work options, with 58% of team members currently enjoying flexible work at Dell. With improved work-life balance, Dell’s remote team members are four times as likely to be engaged at work and two times as likely to want to stay at their current jobs. However, it is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Dell’s Connected Workplace Program recognizes that work flexibility comes in many forms, including remote, flextime, part-time jobs, job sharing, or compressed workweek schedules.

Dell and FlexJobs have partnered to support the remote and flexible work trend in the following ways:

  • Dell posts hundreds of remote and flexible job positions to the FlexJobs database and will continue to recruit flexible workers through FlexJobs’ vast network of job seekers.
  • Dell recently released its FY Corporate Social Responsibility report, which featured a video about the benefits of remote and flexible work and also featured Sara Sutton Fell.
  • Dell has participated in three FlexJobs online job hiring events and webinars and is planning future similar events.
  • Dell has sponsored FlexJobs’ annual TRaD Works Forum and led multiple panels and discussions around optimizing remote work at large-scale companies.
  • FlexJobs’ founder and CEO Sara Sutton Fell spoke about the importance of remote work at Dell Technologies World 2018 Conference.
  • Dell has shared its insight about running a large remote team on FlexJobs’ sister site, Remote.co.
  • Dell has consistently been featured on FlexJobs’ annual “100 Top Companies with Remote Jobs” list.

“By offering flexwork options, Dell has not only realized a more engaged and productive workforce, our Connected Workplace Program has also saved millions in real estate costs with the consolidation of offices worldwide,” said Amy Forbes Winebright, global employment brand project manager at Dell. “In addition, it is estimated that Dell employees in the U.S. alone avoid over 136 million miles of travel per year, saving over $12 million in fuel costs and avoiding over 35,000 metric tons of CO2e per year. Flexible work has always been a part of Dell’s corporate social responsibility plan, and we are thrilled to report we exceeded our 2020 goal to encourage eligible team members to leverage flexible work options, increasing global participation to 50%. As of the recently released FY18 2020 Legacy of Good Plan, Dell reported 58% of team members are leveraging flexible work in their job!” Winebright concluded.

There is a misconception that remote work is only appropriate for lower-skilled, lower-paying jobs in customer service, sales, and administration. Dell’s hiring activity showcases the numerous types of jobs, careers categories, and career levels that are compatible with remote work. The 10 jobs below offer telecommuting options, require minimal travel, and are currently hiring as of June 22, 2018.
