TUCSON, Ariz., Jan. 5, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- A new report from one of the web's leading all-remote job boards puts the spotlight on employers who are continuing to recognize the value of remote work options in 2022.
Virtual Vocations' sixth annual report on the Top 100 Companies to Watch for Remote Jobs ranks employers in the U.S. and around the world known for recruiting remote workers to fill open positions within their organizations.
With headquarters in states across the U.S. and in countries like Canada, Ireland, Japan, and the Netherlands, the employers who made Virtual Vocations' list of top 100 to watch in the New Year span 21 industries, including information technology (IT), healthcare, and financial services and accounting.
Combined, Virtual Vocations sourced more than 72,000 remote job postings from these employers for its massive jobs database throughout 2021, contributing to another record-setting year for the company in its effort to connect jobseekers with legitimate remote work options.
"During 2021, Virtual Vocations saw a 29% increase in the number of remote jobs vetted and posted to our job board," CEO and co-founder Laura Spawn said. "Approximately 12% of those remote job postings were sourced from the top 100 companies featured in this year's list."
Several of the employers who ranked among the top 100 shared thousands of work from home job openings over the last 12 months alone, including both full-time and part-time positions as well as temporary and contract roles.
According to Spawn, it's all evidence that top businesses and organizations are continuing to embrace the growing demand for remote work arrangements as the world enters the third year of the COVID-19 pandemic.
"The Great Resignation of U.S. workers during 2021 has proven employee power and solidified the status of the U.S. job market as candidate-driven," Spawn said.
"For companies to remain competitive and retain their top talent, remote job options are essential," she added. "Remote work is here to stay for the long term."
Ranked by the number of remote jobs shared on Virtual Vocations' jobs database from January through December of last year, Virtual Vocations' top 10 employers for remote jobseekers to keep their eyes on in 2022 are as follows:
1. UnitedHealth Group
2. Anthem, Inc.
4. Humana Inc.
5. Stride, Inc.
6. U.S. Bank
7. Square, Inc.
8. Stanley Black & Decker, Inc.
