These days, work-from-home jobs are more popular than ever. More and more companies are offering remote jobs, and workers are eager to snatch them up.
Telecommuting offers an opportunity for increased flexibility and greater control over your life and schedule. It’s understandable that many people find this kind of arrangement appealing and are looking for work-from-home opportunities.
Recently, FlexJobs, a job search website that specializes in flexible work opportunities, released their second annual list of 100 companies offering the most remote job opportunities. The list was based on data gathered through the job posting histories of over 30,000 companies during the past year.
Let’s take a closer look at the five companies with the most listings:
Helping companies grow through simplifying and personalizing interactions with customers, Teletech is international with work that spans many industries. They are poised to hire more remote employees than any other company in 2015, according to FlexJobs’s data.
A leader in the customer management industry, Convergys Corporation has annual revenues approximating $3 billion and over 125,000 employees who serve clients from locations all over the globe. Their recent acquisition of Stream, a competitor, should help them continue to expand in the months to come.
Sutherland Global Services provides business process and technology management services across 40-plus operation centers across the world. As one of the world’s largest BPO companies, continued growth is anticipated in the future.
The world’s largest online retailer, Amazon.com now also produces consumer electronics, such as the Kindle, and is a major provider of cloud computing services. As Amazon works to expand their business and stay competitive, they’re expected to hire many work-from-home employees.
Founders of the temporary staffing industry in 1946, Kelly Services has continued to evolve and adjust alongside workplace changes for decades. In 2013, they provided employment to more than 540,000 employees, and revenue was $5.4 billion. This company is tried-and-true, and expected to continue to expand opportunities for remote workers in 2015.
FlexJobs also discovered a 27 percent increase in the number of remote jobs posted over the last year. This is yet another indication that these kinds of opportunities are on the rise. Check out the complete list of 100 companies offering work-from-home jobs for more information.
