Whether you're on the hunt for a full-time job or just looking for ways to pick up some extra cash, opportunities to work from home are on the rise!
Jobs that offer the flexibility of telecommuting, or working remotely, used to be rare -- available only to people in certain roles or specific situations. But with the rise of technology, along with new trends in the workplace environment and culture, the game has changed.
FlexJobs, a job search site focused on telecommuting jobs, including freelance, flexible and part-time opportunities, released its annual ranking of the top 100 companies offering remote jobs.
According to the report, the number of telecommuting job listings on FlexJobs' site increased 11% in 2016 -- and jumped 52% over the past two years.
To come up with the list, FlexJobs analyzed more than 47,000 companies in its database and ranked them by most remote-friendly jobs -- those that offer some level of telecommuting -- listed over the past year.
