There’s a lot of interest from workers to find Florida companies hiring remote workers. Now, some companies are exclusively going that route. The number of jobs that state workers can be remote has almost tripled from pre-pandemic levels. Specifically, the number has gone from about 4% of in 2019 to about 12% of jobs in 2022. Those numbers are according to ZipRecruiter.
“The pandemic-induced 50-year acceleration in the shift to remote work has now firmly taken root as a win-win-win for workers, businesses, and the economy,” ZipRecruiter.com says. “For workers, it offers the chance to access distant opportunities, save time and money, lower the risk of contracting Covid, escape gas price inflation, work from anywhere, and spend more time with family.” They add that for businesses, “it provides access to a wider and more diverse talent pool.” It also “reduces real estate and overhead costs, and increases labor productivity while reducing absenteeism. And on a national scale, it may help us avoid a wage-price spiral.”
When it comes to the type of companies looking to hire remote workers, according to ZipRecruiter.com, it’s high on tech jobs. “The share of job postings offering remote work was slowly growing before the pandemic, thanks to the rise of technologies such as cloud computing and video conferencing, but the trend accelerated at the start of the pandemic, and has continued to build,” they state. They add that even though roughly 12% of job postings now “explicitly state that employees may work remotely, there is considerable variation across industries, with less than 1 in 50 job postings offering remote work in transportation and storage (unsurprisingly), but more than 1 in 4 job postings offering it in the technology sector.”
