Agile Working: 5 classic work-from-home jobs
Remote working is no longer simply an opportunity or a benefit to offer when hiring talent.
Now more than ever it has the potential to become an organizational solution that companies could adopt as a permanent strategy.
This way of working has indeed emerged once and for all as an opportunity both for employers and workers, who have had to alter their routines to deal with the state of emergency caused by the pandemic. Home working allowed many companies to survive the total suspension of activities, by guaranteeing continuity and stability for their businesses.
What should we expect for the future?
The job market is most certainly going to change forever as a result of this forced work-from-home experiment. Even those who had never tried this option understood the enormous potential of remote working. Employers seem more and more inclined to appreciate the cost savings and greater flexibility that this solution could offer; for their part, workers experienced a definite improvement in their work-life balance.
If you are currently looking for new job opportunities, here is a list of the most common jobs that can be done remotely:
