Manage Remote Employees, At-Home Work Hacks, and More Remote News!
On July 8, FlexJobs launched Remote.co in response to growing interest in remote working across all professions. Our independent website is a key resource for entrepreneurs and companies interested in or already incorporating remote work as a part of their standard business model.
With the support of almost 50 remote companies, including GitHub, The Cheat Sheet, and Fire Engine RED to name a few, Remote.co is gaining momentum with employers and job seekers. Employers stand front and center answering work flexibility questions with transparency for job seekers and most importantly, potential flexible employers, to learn more about company hiring, how to manage remote employees, and operating distributed teams. Additionally, for employers looking to break into growing their businesses remotely, free consultations are available to launch, comply, and scale successfully.
In a relatively short period of time, Remote.co has received praise from notable press outlets. Here are our highlights:
“Picture your last job interview—whether you were on the employer or candidate side. What was it like? Was the handshake awkward? Could you sit comfortably in the chair? Was it too hot or too cold in the room? Did the other person seem nervous?”
“In early July, a new resource for the remote work community launched called Remote.co. The new site is a blend of articles about remote work, a listing of remote jobs, and Q&As with remote companies.”
“Roughly 40 percent of U.S. employees now work remotely at least part of the time, and the jobs site FlexJobs has launched a website dedicated to helping employers navigate the resulting challenges.”
“The Bureau of Labor Statistics just released its much-anticipated American Time Use Survey, which found that more Americans are working from home, with 23 percent completing all or some of their work from home, up from 19 percent in 2003.”
“Remote.co, focuses on companies with virtual teams and includes a section on remote worker setups and insights. ‘Sometimes I need a change of scenery, and I’ll work on my porch or head to a coffee shop,’ a Batchbook worker posted. ‘I work on a treadmill desk. … I started with a standing desk a little over a year ago and eventually switched over,” a Go Fish Digital worker said.’”
