Remote jobs have been around for quite some time, but the pandemic has forced many businesses to go remote and come up with all sorts of work-from-home programs to comply with COVID-19 social-distancing measures, whether they wanted it or not. According to Gallup, 62% of employed Americans have worked from home during the coronavirus outbreak, with remote-work or flex-time options increasing from 39% in mid-March to 57% in early April.
Employees like it and, surprisingly, managers are on the same page. “Nearly 1 in 5 chief financial officers surveyed say they plan to keep at least 20% of their workforce working remotely,” revealed Brie Reynolds of the remote-work search site FlexJobs. “Remote work is being transformed for the long term.”
