According to a new Ladders’ report, 25% of positions paying over $80.000 will be remote jobs.
During the first lockdown, companies struggled to safely transfer their workflow from a physical to a virtual environment. However, after a few years, employers and employees got used to remote working.
Indeed, most people now prefer remote jobs. From better flexibility to cost-effective strategies, remote working is the most popular among employers and employees. Ladders monitored the evolution of remote jobs since the beginning of the pandemic.
According to their data, only 4% of remote jobs paid high salaries before the pandemic. At the end of 2020, numbers reached 9% and today is 15%. As the report shows, the growth rate expected will bring more well-paid remote positions in the next 12 months.
In addition, Consultancy.edu’s report shows that companies can save over 32% in real estate costs. For example, insurance businesses can save an average of 47% by 2024. And financial services will save around 45%.
Finally, trends confirm that most remote workers moved to more affordable cities and towns. Hybrid and remote jobs allow a better work-life balance. And people can choose better arrangements to spend more time with their families and be productive.
