If working remote is your thing, then you’ll want to take note of the companies hiring most work-at-home employees right now, and some of them are in Michigan. Obviously, the pandemic also cause a lot of people to decide they would rather permanently work at home as opposed to being in an office each day.
FlexJobs has released its 10th annual “Top 100 Companies to Watch for Remote Jobs” list. In the study, they note that between 2021 and 2022, “FlexJobs saw a 20% increase in the number of remote job listings on the site, compared with just 12% the previous year. And with the wider adoption of remote work came more variety in job titles and career levels. While a majority of positions were for experienced-level jobs (62%), manager and senior-level roles claimed 32% of the remote job listings. The remaining 6% of postings were attributed to entry-level jobs.”
This year’s list features some companies that have been on the tally a long time and others that are new. As for the job categories, “With remote work shifting from a pandemic-era policy to a permanent business solution throughout 2022, this year’s top career categories reflect the wide-scale adoption of remote work across various industries.” The career fields that saw the most significant growth in 2022, according to the study, are accounting & finance (31%), HR & recruiting (22%), and marketing (20%). They note that “modest growth” was also seen among computer & IT, project management and medical & health. One popular remote job field, customer service, did however experience a drop of 6% from 2021.
