St. Louis was named the second-best location in Coworking Cafe’s research of the “Best Cities for Remote Workers.” The cafe allows users to search for coworking spaces nationally.
To compile the rankings, research teams looked at factors from hundreds of US locations, such as local internet speed and coverage, the presence of coworking spaces, and cost of living.
Among the major US cities examined in the research, St. Louis was noted for having the lowest cost of living, the second-best entertainment density, and the third-best walkability. According to Coworking Cafe, the adoption of remote work during the pandemic offered greater mobility to workers who wanted to create a life outside the nation’s coastal urban centers.
The research claims that during the pandemic, remote working options in St. Louis were beneficial to businesses in the healthcare, biotechnology, aerospace, printing, publishing, and electrical equipment manufacturing industries.
Research teams praised Atlanta’s WiFi speeds and coworking density in naming it the best city for remote workers.
