More high-paying jobs are going to be remote by the end of the year, according to a study Bloomberg reported from the career site Ladders.
The report found that over one-fourth of professional positions, mostly in the United States, will be fully remote by the end of 2022, an 18% increase from the end of 2021. Remote jobs are growing mostly in tech-focused roles like engineering and product management, according to the report.
The data is further proof that remote work won't end if the COVID-19 pandemic subsides. Companies have already adapted to that change by hiring roles like a head of Remote and offering employees a few different workplace options, and many have let their back-to-office plans completely fall by the wayside.
The findings also show how remote work will keep high-paying workers around. The Great Resignation hasn't gone anywhere, and employees are looking for as much flexibility as they can get. Companies like Facebook have acknowledged this, and the ones that still want their employees in the office even for a couple of days have gotten their fair share of pushback.
