Work From Home In 2017: The Top 100 Companies Offering Remote Jobs

Working from home is increasingly the dream of many a harried employee

But it’s hard to find legitimate work-from-home opportunities that aren’t too-good-to-be-true scams.

FlexJobs, a company that vets all types of flexible job listings including part-time, telecommuting and freelance, today releases the top 100 companies offering telecommuting opportunities in 2017.

The annual list is comprised of the companies that offered the highest number of remote job listings in the FlexJobs database in 2016, out of a total of 47,000 such companies. It includes jobs that allow for telecommuting both part and all of the time. To access these vetted opportunities, the site charges a fee.

Such opportunities seem to be increasing — the percentage of workers doing all or some of their work at home increased from 19% in 2003 to 24% in 2015, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Among those in management, business, financial operations and professional jobs, the percentage was 35-38%. And 68% of U.S. workers say that they expect to work remotely in the future.

Industries that are most likely to offer remote work include the computer and information technology fields, medical and health, and government and finance. Customer service, education and training and sales also feature a number of telecommuting jobs.

“The results of this year’s list are in line with the overall growth trends we’re observing in the flexible job marketplace, with increasingly diverse companies turning to the ‘TRaD’ (or telecommuting, remote, and distributed) model of work as an integrated business practice,” said Sara Sutton Fell, founder and CEO of FlexJobs.

Among the top 10 companies in this year’s list are Amazon, UnitedHealth, Teletech. See the full list below and at FlexJobs, and compare it to the top 100 companies offering work-from-home jobs in 2016, 2015 and 2014.

Best Countries to Start a Career

Large nations across the globe attract job-seeking millennials

The global labor force has grown by more than 200 million people in the last five years, according to the World Bank. Most of these workers are millennials – adults less than 35 years old – at least in the United States, where in 2015 they surpassed Generation Xers to become the generation with largest share of the labor force.

Despite reports that young adults are spending more years in school, the global economy is desperate for more skilled workers. The McKinsey Global Institute predicts that by 2020, there will be 38 million to 40 million fewer workers with a college or postgraduate degree than the labor market needs. The Best Countries to Start a Career are those with developing and dynamic economies that can best employ workers to their skill level and the country’s need.

The 2016 Best Countries rankings, conducted in partnership with brand strategy firm BAV Consulting and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, asked more than 16,000 survey participants from four regions to associate countries with specific attributes.

The Best Countries to Start a Career are ranked based on scores primarily from nearly 6,000 millennials, or adults less than 35 years old, on a compilation of seven equally weighted country attributes: a good job market, economically stable, entrepreneurial, income equality, innovative, is a place I would live and progressive.
