Want to work from home forever? These 10 companies are hiring remote-friendly jobs

More people than ever before have had a taste of working remotely, and many don’t want to go back to life without it. While employers are contemplating their return-to-work plans, remote work has been a boon for those seeking more flexible work arrangements.

According to a survey conducted by Mental Health America and FlexJobs, an online job service, employees without flexible work arrangements are almost two times more likely to have poor or very poor mental health compared to those who do have flexible work arrangements. In the same survey, 66% of workers would prefer to work remotely full-time after the pandemic, if given the choice.

Working from home can be especially game-changing for parents and people who want to live outside of major metropolitan areas. Fifty-seven percent of respondents say they would like to work from home all the time or more often than they used to, according to a workforce survey conducted in the spring by CNBC. Companies like Infosys have committed to building offices outside of traditional tech hub geographies in states such as Indiana, North Carolina, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Texas, and Arizona.

Other employers are taking notice — FlexJobs compiled a list of companies in a variety of industries, including marketing and technology, that were hiring for remote-friendly jobs between April and August of this year.
