This story originally appeared on FlexJobs.

COVID-19 has forced companies all over the world to adapt to and embrace remote work — at least for the short term. And although the transition to working from home was fast and furious for a lot of organizations, many companies are now figuring out that working remotely is the future of work — pandemic or not.

Recent news stories abound with company announcements of extended work-from-home policies, with some even deciding to allow employees to work from home permanently.

For companies already integrating some remote work before the pandemic hit, the move toward a fully remote workforce was a natural one. For others, it took the world’s largest work-from-home experiment to show that remote work is productive, successful and collaborative.

And, remote work has significant benefits for both employers and employees, not the least of which is increased productivity and better work-life balance.

According to a Global Workplace Analytics survey of employees working remotely during the pandemic, 73% noted that they are very successful when working from home, and 86% said they feel “fully productive” working from their home office. And, of the 3,000 respondents, 76% said they want to continue working from home at least 2.5 days per week, on average.

It’s clear that employees value being able to work from home. And as more and more companies switch to a remote-first or fully remote model, job seekers have an even better chance of finding (and landing) the ideal work-from-home position.

Following are many companies that have recently switched to long-term remote work, along with recent remote opportunities that have been posted to FlexJobs.
