The most forward-thinking and flexible employers understand that telework is not just a perk for employees but also beneficial to the company as a whole. In these pages you'll find some of the best companies for telecommuters -- ones that are known to have telecommuting programs or otherwise informally allow employees to work from home at least part time. Many of these companies often land on "Top Companies To Work For" lists partly because of benefits offered such as telecommuting.
For your easy reference, these telecommuting companies are organized by industry. The industries below also comprise the list of the best sectors to find a work-from-home job:
- Business Services
- Consumer Products, Retail, Manufacturing
- Financial Services
- Government/Defense & Space
- Healthcare, Pharmaceuticals
- Technology & Telecommunications
Important note: Although companies are listed here as telework-friendly, becoming a telecommuter at most organizations is determined on a case-by-case basis, with on-site performance required before telecommuting is allowed. Also, these companies may not have any employment positions (on- or off-site) open at this time. Visit their website to see if there are available jobs, and follow common-sense job search do's and don'ts when inquiring about a job.
