Flexible working: New analysis shows numbers of remote workers has doubled in four years

An online job board called CV-Library recently carried out an analysis of over 175,000 vacancies posted on its site. According to their analysis, the number of people working remotely has doubled in the past four years along with increased earning potential for such roles. Unsurprisingly, the highest number of remote working roles are those in the technology industry, but areas such as education are proving that there is a greater potential for increased earning by working remotely, up to 120%. Whilst many people still see working from home as a perk, it is now becoming a legitimate way of working, and the statistics prove that productivity improves too. Not only this, but working from home improves work-life balance and health and happiness. It’s seemingly a win-win for employers and employees. No wonder more recruiters are offering more flexible ways of working.
