A survey last year by McKinsey/Ipsos showed that 58% of Americans can work from home at least one day a week.
Since the pandemic began in March 2020, a lot of us have turned into remote workers, going to an office part-time at most.
A McKinsey/Ipsos survey last year showed that 58% of Americans report having the opportunity to work from home at least one day a week. And 35% of report having the option to work from home five days a week.
If you’re looking to get a job with a company that lets you work from home at least some of the time, you might want to consider a list from FlexJobs, a remote-job web site. This list includes the companies that have posted the most job openings on this site.
The number of remote job listings on FlexJobs’ web site soared 20% in 2022, after rising 12% in 2021. A total of 6% of those listings were for entry-level jobs, 62% for experienced-level jobs and 32% for manager and senior-level roles.
The top 10 job titles listed on FlexJobs last year were:

The trend toward remote work is likely to continue, experts say. Workers are tired of the hassle and expense created by their daily commute. And many find it more productive to work on their own. Some businesses have tried to push workers back to the office full-time, but with mixed success.
“Many, many companies in recent months have insisted that people come back to the office five days a week, only to reverse that mandate within about a week after hearing that they’d lose their best and brightest,” Julia Pollak, chief economist ZipRecruiter, told The New York Times.
Remote work, Ms. Pollak added, “is not just used as a sort of perk in a tight labor market that’s going to go away in a slacker labor market.”
So if you like working from home, this is your time to shine.
