Remote work has been gaining popularity in the past few years but it was only during the pandemic that even the most traditional companies considered transitioning to work-from-home jobs. While it was a major adjustment for many, it has a lot of advantages.

People realized that in-person meetings are unnecessary, especially with e-mails, online meetings, and work calls becoming the norm. As such, numerous companies started offering online jobs and work-from-home arrangements for their employees. According to SHRM Online, teleworkers are more productive -- even when sick. Telecommuting saves money and increases productivity for the company and its employees. That’s why more companies are opting for virtual offices or a mix of on-site and remote work. Interested in remote work opportunities? Here's how to find a job online through the best online job platforms.
