Will your remote job stay that way 2022
Trying to find a new job where you can work from home? The pandemic prompted many job-seekers to look for remote or hybrid work, but how do you know whether the job you're applying for now will stay remote in the coming years?
Some of the biggest clues can come from a company’s competitors.
In my latest research — co-authored with Smith PhD student Jingwen Yang, Charles Ham of Indiana University, and Wenfeng Wang of City University of Hong Kong — we looked at work-from-home job postings and found employers are more likely to offer remote work when more of their peers already do so.
Many people like the option to work from home. According to research, some employees are even willing to accept lower wages in exchange for workplace flexibility. Several employers such as Airbnb noted their career pages receive considerably more views when a job description includes the flexibility to work from home.
