- A growing number of companies of all sizes and across industries operate in a fully virtual environment
A recent FlexJobs survey revealed that 58 percent of respondents prefer a fully remote job post-pandemic. However, 42 percent also report that their employer will require them to return to the office. To highlight the many different companies that do operate in a fully remote capacity, and to help connect job seekers to careers they can do entirely from home, FlexJobs has identified 50 virtual companies that are currently or have recently been hiring for fully remote jobs.
“The pandemic pushed many people to reconsider the relationship between their personal and professional lives, and it’s telling that now 44% know someone who has quit or is planning to quit because of in-person work requirements,” said Sara Sutton, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “We hope this expansive list of virtual companies helps connect job seekers to the types of remote job opportunities they’re pursuing, and showcases the many different types of companies that embrace remote work as their standard business practice,” Sutton concluded.
