DENVER, CO – What are the most popular virtual office jobs? What industries are hiring telecommuters and flexible workers? FlexJobs just released its monthly flexible work report. This month, the flexible jobs database is revealing the top 10 companies offering flexible jobs.
FlexJobs has compiled a list of 10 companies in its database that had the most job openings including virtual office jobs, flexible scheduling, part-time hours, and contract or freelance positions in April 2013. Not surprisingly given from a virtual office, the search engine giant is not on the list.
“Every month, we take a good look at our job listing data to find out the top industries hiring for flexible jobs,” says Sara Sutton Fell, CEO of FlexJobs. “This month we decided to study the top companies who have the most positions available that offer some type of flexibility, and we are very excited to see some big name companies offering flexible work options. It really shows that, despite high-profile controversies over flexible work options like with Yahoo, those large companies are still embracing this way of working.”
Without further ado, the top 10 companies offering flexible jobs include:
4. Enterprise Contact Center
9. HD Supply
10. Internet Brands, Inc.
How is FlexJobs so sure? Because it has screenings in place. For example, all of the companies and jobs listed at FlexJobs are first approved by the job search service’s research team, which works to weed out scams and bogus business opportunities.
Once the virtual office job opportunity is deemed legitimate with professional employment opportunities, it is free for companies to post jobs on the site. Currently there are more than 50 career categories, and job opportunities range from entry-level to executive level, part-time to full-time, and freelance to employee status.
“We’re happy to feature this past month’s most active companies, but it’s more exciting overall that we have found over 25,000 employers who offer work from home and other flexible jobs,” says Fell.
