Remote work is becoming a standard practice in most fields and has created a new generation of telecommuters who are no longer the exception to the rule, they are the rule. In the past two decades, the number of telecommuters has risen by 115%, according to a report by FlexJobs. Millennials are beginning to choose flexible jobs over salary.
Industries that were previously thought to only exist as in-person roles like nursing, personal assistants, and teaching, have joined the virtual revolution using remote technology to connect people around the world. If you're looking for a work from home remote job, here are some of the best remote companies to work for.
These companies are fully remote, meaning all employees work from home or from shared workspaces.
