Here are the top 100 companies for remote jobs in 2021:
Headquartered in 11 countries, these companies had the highest number of remote job openings throughout 2020.
GettyFor years, translation and localization company Lionbridge has maintained a remote workforce, with employees operating from 5,000 cities around the globe. But with more than 95% of its staff now working remotely as a result of the pandemic, many of its long-time telecommuters finally feel they are on a level playing field.
“At some other companies, the people not [working] in the office always feel like they are at somewhat of a disadvantage,” says Lionbridge CMO Jaime Punishill. “My team dynamics are better than they were a year ago because nobody feels different.”Lionbridge’s existing work-from-home infrastructure enabled it to successfully pivot to a remote environment when the pandemic began. This has earned the company the top spot on FlexJobs’ eighth annual list of the
Top 100 Companies to Watch for Remote Jobs in 2021. The job-search site based its ranking on an analysis of 57,000 companies’ remote-job postings in FlexJobs’ database during 2020. Those companies with the most remote-job openings made the final list. headtopics.com
“There is a maturity in a business that can trust employees that are not physically present,” says Ann Lazarus-Barnes, chief people officer at Lionbridge. “There’s a very talented group of people that do best in a remote environment. We welcome this whole talent pool that other organizations may not be able to.”
Customer experience tech company TTEC took the second spot on the list, followed by cloud call center service LiveOps. The organizations ranked are headquartered in 11 countries, including the Netherlands, Sweden and Australia.While the pandemic has popularized remote work, it hasn’t affected this year’s list that much, says Brie Reynolds, a career development manager at FlexJobs. Eleven companies, including Dell Technologies (No. 41), CVS Health (No. 28) and Salesforce (No. 25), have been featured on the list since 2014.
“It’s interesting because the list, over the years, has reflected the leaders in remote work, the companies who do it really well and do it often,” she says. “If anything, the pandemic has strengthened those companies’ commitment to remote work. It’s really shown them to be the leaders in this area.”
However, newcomers, such as Pfizer (No. 96) and Supporting Strategies (No. 17), who’ve earned spots on the list after posting a great deal of remote positions in recent months, demonstrate that the remote-work trend is not just a “flash in the pan,” Reynolds says. headtopics.com
Like last year, the top fields hiring for remote jobs in 2020 were computer/information technology, medical/health and project management. Marketing, administrative and human resources and recruiting were some of the fast-growing categories for remote work, each having increased 25% from March to December 2020.
As companies decide whether to make the switch to telecommuting permanent, they should consider the benefits, Reynolds says. Remote work allows companies to hire from a more diverse pool of candidates, while also saving money on office space and supplies. In turn, employees may be able to have a better work-life balance, as well as reduced stress, among other health benefits.
“I hope companies stick with it so they get to experience the additional benefits without the added stressor of the pandemic,” she says.The full list of the Top Companies For Remote Jobs can be found below: Read more: Forbes »
