Female entrepreneur working on a laptop while sitting at a table in her home office

While some people like the energy and excitement of being in an office and working around other people, others prefer to work at home alone. When working at home became the norm during the pandemic, a lot of workers decided they wanted to keep things that way.

Now, CNBC is highlighting one Michigan city as the best for finding a work-from-home job in the entire country. “It’s been more than three years since the global pandemic sent workers accustomed to five-day, in-person work weeks away from offices,” CNBC states in the story. “Many desk workers are still working from home for at least some of the week. That’s because remote and hybrid work models originally adopted as a short-term solution have shown staying power, even with the global public health emergency officially declared over.”

The Best City in America for Work-At-Home Opportunities

So, which Michigan town topped the list? Lansing, Michigan, is No. 1, with a reported 30.8% of job listings stating that they offer at least one day of remote work. That’s a bit higher than the next spot on the list, Reston, Virginia, which has about 28.3% of job listings stating that they offer at least one day of remote work. Regarding the city, CNBC states, “Lansing, Michigan may never be the same. The city of just over 110,000 residents, known for its towering state capitol building, large convention center and proximity to college campuses, is trying to reshape itself for a post-Covid world.” CNBC adds that in Lansing, some of the changes post-Covid include “different work hours, more housing and new event spaces as community and business leaders try to reimagine what and who the downtown caters to. It’s all being done in a bid to attract people to live or visit as reality sets in that Lansing and other cities can no longer thrive on office-centric economies.” Read the full story here.
