The 2016 100 Top Companies to Watch for remote work and why you'll want to read about it here instead of Forbes.com
This morning I tried to read an article on Forbes.com about remote work and I don't want to share the link without a warning because I don't want it to lock up your browser like it did mine.
Forbes is a sterling business news brand, but their website is out of control. A quick google search told me I'm not alone with my experience and here's a screenshot to show you want I mean.
Anyway, this is the third year FlexJobs has published a list of the companies that have posted the most "work-from-home" jobs. Those jobs include "remote, telecommuting, and virtual" as categories.
(I've never understood the use of the phrase "virtual worker" in this context, you're either a worker or you're not.)
Based on 40,000 jobs in the FlexJob database, Remote work job listings increased 26% from 2013 to 2014 and 36% from 2014 to 2015. So, not only are remote work opportunities increasing, they're apparently increasing at a faster rate.
It's interesting and encouraging to see a couple of US Government jobs sprinkled in this list as well as a traditional university or two. I believe legacy institutions will have to embrace remote work at a faster rate to remain relevant.
Here's a link to the list and here's a link to the Forbes article if you want to test your ad blocker software.
