The COVID-19 crisis has dramatically changed the way we live and work. Employers that once required workers to be on-site from 9 to 5 have embraced remote work, or reluctantly accepted it. In truth, there was little choice in the matter due to state and local regulations to protect public health.
An MIT study found that of those employed before COVID, half are now working from home, including 35% who were previously commuting. The telecommuting trend is likely to continue, even after a vaccine is found.
Companies and industry sectors that are actively hiring remote workers include Banking, Finance, Customer Service.
