Leader in home health & post-acute care among top companies hiring remote workers
Hartford, Conn., March 3, 2020—CareCentrix, the leading provider of home-based and post-acute care solutions, has been named to FlexJobs’ annual list of the Top 100 Companies to Watch for Remote Jobs in 2020. CareCentrix is committed to a flexible, productive working environment. The company was a leader in 2019 in remote job postings on the FlexJobs website and is nationally ranked in the top 20 of all healthcare organizations. The FlexJobs list is based on an analysis of more than 54,000 companies and their 2019 remote job posting histories in the FlexJobs database.
Overall, the number of people telecommuting in the United States has increased 159% since 2005. CareCentrix recognizes that remote work brings real benefits to both employers and workers. While the average person can save about $4,000 a year by working from home, employers experience a wide range of benefits from remote work as well. Cost savings, access to a greater talent pool, stronger retention rates, and higher productivity are a few of the compelling reasons companies are strategically integrating remote workers into their workforce.
“Our remote workforce makes up half of all employees, so it’s critical for us to foster an environment that embraces everyone, and that starts with creating a culture to help people bring their best selves to work,” said John Driscoll, CEO, CareCentrix. “As we strive to build a world where anyone can heal and age at home we must continue to tap into top talent wherever they are.”
According to FlexJobs, a “remote job” is defined as a professional-level job that allows the worker to work from home either entirely or part of the time. Remote jobs are also known as telecommuting jobs, virtual jobs, and work-from-home jobs.
In healthcare, CareCentrix ranked 18 out of 24 companies that comprised the top 100 category, finishing ahead of CVS Health, Johnson & Johnson and Novartis.
“The most notable change we’ve seen over the past year is not so much the growth in the sheer volume of remote job listings, but the growth in the variety of remote job titles these companies are seeking to hire,” said Sara Sutton, founder and CEO of FlexJobs “Companies are expanding the range of professional positions they’re allowing to work from home. It’s important to keep in mind that this list represents the jobs that are only formally reported and advertised as remote. I believe the true scope of remote work is much larger, with informal and ad hoc work-from-home arrangements increasingly common. Of course, all of this is ultimately fantastic news for remote job seekers across all career fields and levels,” Sutton concluded.
