The average worker spends 26 minutes a day commuting to and from work. If they spend that time on public transport every day, by the end of the year they will have spent 9 days on a bus, train or car, unpaid.
Employers are starting to recognize this. At our most recent Nomad Stories panel, we asked CEOs why they choose to be remote. Aside from saving on overheads, there's one other clear bonus for Joel Andren, CEO of virtual company PressFriendly. 'If you're only hiring in San Francisco, you limit your talent pool to that city. Imagine if you could now hire the best skillsets, wherever they are?' There are now 100,000 remote workers using Remotive.io to secure remote roles in technology, marketing, insights, operations and more. This is the biggest resource for remote jobs at your fingertips, and they've compiled an index of 600 companies that will be hiring remotely this year.
