According to FlexJobs, BELAY ranks high – we’re talking No. 20 out of 100 – among companies hiring remote workers.
To say we’re honored to make FlexJobs’ annual list of the Top 100 Companies to Watch for Remote Jobs in 2021 would be a gross understatement.
Their list is based on an analysis of over 57,000 companies and their remote job posting histories in the FlexJobs database between January 1, 2020, and December 31, 2020.
This distinction recognizes BELAY as one of 100 companies that had the highest number of remote job openings on the FlexJobs site in 2020.
“This past year asked a lot of business leaders,” said BELAY CEO Tricia Sciortino. “So it was a blessing that we’ve been a 100-percent remote company for 10 years. And as more and more people have recognized that traditional jobs can be done virtually, we’ve considered it a privilege to lead that charge every day.”
Sara Sutton, founder and CEO of FlexJobs agrees.
“The coronavirus pandemic has permanently reshaped the workplace and how, when, and where people work," Sara said. "Business models have been forever disrupted with the realization that remote work is smart, strategic, and sustainable for companies to embrace, improving not only the bottom line but also providing benefits to the overall workforce.
“FlexJobs has been compiling our Top 100 Companies to Watch for Remote Work list since 2014, and although the circumstances for the rapid and massive adoption of its practices are extremely unfortunate, we are excited to see so many more organizations deeply integrating remote work both now and for the future,” Sutton concluded.
According to a FlexJobs survey of approximately 4,000 people who have been working remotely during the pandemic, 95 percent report they have been as productive or much more productive working from home than they were in the traditional office. Sixty-five percent would prefer to work remotely full-time post-pandemic, while 31 percent would like a combination of remote and in-office work. Four percent would prefer to return to the traditional office full-time.
The average person can save about $4,000 a year by working from home, and employers can experience a wide range of benefits from remote work as well. Cost savings, access to a greater talent pool, stronger retention rates, and higher productivity are a few of the compelling reasons companies are strategically integrating remote workers into their workforce.
