FlexJobs’ ninth annual list details the top 100 companies hiring remote workers
Boulder, CO, January 11, 2022—Today, FlexJobs released its ninth annual list of the Top 100 Companies to Watch for Remote Jobs in 2022. This list is based on an analysis of approximately 57,000 companies and their remote job posting histories in the FlexJobs database between January 1, 2021, and December 31, 2021. These 100 companies had the highest number of remote job openings throughout 2021. A “remote job” is defined as a professional-level job that allows the worker to work from home either entirely or part of the time.
“One of FlexJobs’ recent surveys found that only 3% of workers would prefer to return to the office full-time after the pandemic,” said Sara Sutton, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “The important role that remote work plays in today’s modern workplace cannot be underestimated, and smart companies, like the ones featured on this list, will formally integrate remote work into their business model for the long-term. Our intent in creating this list in 2014 remains the same in 2022, which is to help job seekers connect with companies that are not only providing remote career opportunities but also leading the way for a more flexible future of work,” Sutton concluded.
FlexJobs saw a 12% increase in the number of remote job listings in 2021 over 2020 and the listings themselves reflected more variety in job titles and career levels. The majority (roughly 80 percent) of remote postings were for experienced and manager-level roles, but the percentage of entry-level remote jobs and director-level remote jobs was higher in 2021 compared to previous years. There were also a record number of new companies to the list, signaling that companies are committed to hiring for remote jobs for the long-term.
The top career fields for remote jobs in 2021, and the ones to watch in 2022 are:
- Computer & IT
- Accounting & Finance
- Medical & Health
- Project Management
- Customer Service
- HR & Recruiting
Building on momentum from the previous year, remote-friendly jobs in accounting and finance grew dramatically to become the second most promising career field for remote-friendly jobs for 2022. Remote jobs in marketing also experienced steep growth in 2021 compared to earlier years. Among these top seven categories, however, the HR & recruiting industry saw the highest percentage jump in remote job postings, mirroring the overall increased demand for recruiter jobs amid the general labor shortage.
Computer/IT, healthcare, project management, and customer service remain steady and promising prospects for remote jobs. Although, thanks to the pandemic-inspired widespread adoption of remote work across industries, these industries do not individually dominate the remote job marketplace as much as they have in previous years. This is all-around great news for remote job seekers across experience level and industry.
Known for its commitment to home-based talent, BroadPath earned the number one spot on the 2022 Top 100 list, hiring for various roles such as director of sales, graphic design specialist, health insurance agent, HR onboarding specialist, and pharmacy customer service representative.
Companies such as Varsity Tutors and Working Solutions are among the top 10 companies with the highest number of remote jobs posted in 2022. Some companies are complete newcomers to FlexJobs’ annual Top 100 list, such as HubSpot, Mayo Clinic, and Stitch Fix. Others, such as Amazon, Thermo Fisher Scientific, and Wells Fargo, were repeats from last year’s list. There were 35 new companies to this year’s list, the highest number since 2014.
Anthem, Inc., CVS Health, Dell Technologies, Kelly, Parexel, SAP, Stride, Inc., and UnitedHealth Group are the eight companies that have made the list of top remote employers each year since 2014, showing their historical and sustained commitment to offering remote work long before the pandemic normalized it.
TTEC, which secured the seventh spot on FlexJobs’ list, values remote work for its broad benefits to both the company and its workers. TTEC’s Chief People Officer Michael Wellman comments, “With over a decade of experience in work from home, we’re more committed than ever to elevate the human experience at work by providing world-class training, engagement activities, and career growth in a virtual environment. TTEC’s commitment to remote work allows us to meet talent where they are, providing veterans, military spouses, displaced workers, and underrepresented communities the opportunity to thrive in delivering our purpose to bring humanity to business,” Wellman concluded.
While a wide variety of jobs can be done from home, some of the most popular remote job titles include accountant, customer service representative, recruiter, nurse, project manager, teacher, web developer, and writer.
Williams-Sonoma, ninth on the list, proves that large-scale remote hiring is still achievable in a difficult hiring market. Josh Layton, Recruiting Manager, says, “FlexJobs has been a tremendous partner to us for not only promoting our opportunities but providing the best associates to hire statistically. Though 2021 was a challenge for most of us, we still managed to hire roughly 10,000 work-from-home associates that led to another highly successful year of caring for our customers. We couldn’t have done this without FlexJobs and their partnership,” Layton concluded.
