Flexible work isn't just for hip, young startups anymore. The biggest names in corporate America have started embracing it, too. In fact, some of these giants are even leading the way.
The people at flexible work job board FlexJobs recently cross-referenced the latest Fortune 500 companies list with its annual Top 100 Companies with Remote Jobs list to identify 23 Fortune 500 employers with remote jobs.
"Fortune 500 companies embracing remote work shows just how far remote work options, and flexible work in general, have come," says Brie Reynolds, senior career specialist at FlexJobs. "Instead of being seen as a perk for employees, large and well-known companies are embracing [flexible work] as a win-win for their workforces and their bottom lines. It gives weight to the idea that flexible work options can actually be a part of a smart business strategy if they're implemented in ways that both support employees and support the goals of the company."
