While “work from home” ads sometimes seem too good to be true, FlexJobs, a paid listings site, does the vetting for you to post legitimate opportunities.
The site has released a list of the top 250 companies for flexible jobs, culled from an analysis of more than 40,000 companies and their history of job postings on the site over the last three years. For the purposes of the list, the company defined “flexible job” as a professional-level job that has a telecommuting, flexible schedule, part-time or freelance component.
The impetus for the list was to celebrate the three-year anniversary of FlexJobs’ founder Sara Sutton Fell’s initiative 1 Million for Work Flexibility, which offers those who want or need work flexibility a way to display their support for flexible work options.
“The landscape of flexible work has evolved dramatically since I founded FlexJobs, and it’s important to celebrate how much progress companies have made towards work flexibility in recent years,” said Fell in a statement. “Professional, viable flexible jobs are now available across a wide variety of industries and at all career-levels, which is due both to companies hearing their employees’ demands for work flexibility, as well as employers themselves recognizing the many benefits.”
The companies below offer positions at a range of levels of experience and represent a diversity of industries: medical/health, human resources, computer/IT, and education/Training top the list, and accounting/finance, government and travel/hospitality are also well-represented. The full list is also on the FlexJobs site.
