BELAY is proud to announce that it has again been named to FlexJobs’ 9th annual list of the Top 100 Companies to Watch for Remote Jobs in 2022 for the fifth consecutive year.
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.
BELAY is one of 100 companies that had the highest number of remote job openings throughout 2021 and ranked #23 on the list. BELAY’s more than 1,500 contracted virtual assistants, bookkeepers, and social media managers, as well as every one of its nearly 130 employees on its corporate team, all work remotely.
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.
“BELAY has been leading the charge in disrupting the status quo and dismantling the ‘way things have always been done’ as a 100% remote organization – for both contractors and corporate employees alike – since 2010,” said Tricia Sciortino, BELAY CEO. “So this recognition is a testament to our commitment to walking the walk of work-life balance.”
“We’re proud to serve our clients with high-touch, excellent service, and steward them with passion, integrity, responsiveness and give them the best service in the market – all from home.”
The top seven career fields hiring for remote jobs in 2021 were:
- Computer & IT
- Accounting & Finance
- Medical & Health
- Project Management
- Customer Service
- HR & Recruiting
“One of FlexJobs’ recent surveys found that only three percent 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. While the increase in the actual number of remote job postings is notable, the growth in the variety of remote job titles and the range of professional positions companies are now allowing to work from home is also substantial.
The majority of remote positions reflect manager and experienced levels, but at least 20% also encompass entry-level and director-level positions.
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.
