You might already know that the pandemic sent millions of workers home, to work from remote locations, and that many have expressed a desire to keep things that way. Quite a few even quit their jobs, in search of permanent work-from-home positions. But did you know that dozens of major companies have already embraced this growing demand?
It’s true; at least 30 major companies have announced a changeover to permanent remote work or flex work. In fact, many of them are now hiring workers from across the country to fill open positions. Those companies include:
- CVS Health
- Lincoln Financial Group
- Square, Inc
- Zoom Video Communications
No longer will hopeful job candidates be forced to relocate to a handful of major cities. Likewise, companies can now recruit top talent from any city, town, or rural area of the country. Workers will even be able to clock into work while traveling, whether for leisure or other reasons.
Of course, with so many industry leaders offering the flexible conditions demanded by the workforce, many smaller companies are sure to follow. We’re witnessing a society-wide change in how we live and work, with massive growth in remote work and flex work expected over the next few years.
The next natural evolution will be the demand for support services for remote workers. We’re already seeing signs of that demand, with flexible workspaces opening up all over the country. For those interested in starting their own businesses and looking for the right opportunity, there is no better time than the present.
There’s no going back to the old way of working, but for those willing to act, the future offers vast opportunity. Contact us to learn more about Parlay Cafe, flexible workspaces, and how our franchise model fits perfectly into the growing trend of remote work.
