With over half of all employed Americans working from home due to the pandemic, businesses of all sizes — from small startups to major corporations — are hiring workers for remote and flexible jobs. And even though some companies may have employees return to the office in the coming year, many are choosing to switch to a long-term remote working model.

With companies big and small continuing to embrace remote work, we’re seeing an uptick in the number of work-from-home jobs posted on the FlexJobs database. In fact, there’s been a 20% increase in remote job postings in July 2020 compared to June.

Fortune 500 companies, in many instances, are leading the way when it comes to hiring remote workers. To help you with your work-from-home job search, we’re highlighting some of the biggest corporations in the U.S. that commonly hire for remote jobs.
