This story originally appeared on FlexJobs.

According to FlexJobs’ annual survey, fully remote work is the most desired flexible work option, with 76% of survey respondents claiming it as their first choice. And within the greater remote work category, work-from-anywhere jobs are especially coveted because of the freedom and flexibility they offer.

You might be asking, “Work from anywhere? Can’t all remote jobs be done from anywhere?”

The answer is no. About 95% of remote jobs require candidates to be based in a specific location, such as a state or country, even though they’ll be able to work from their homes. This is often due to employment and tax laws.

But, thanks to technology and the increasing acceptance of remote work across all industries, up to 10% of those location-specific positions can be done from anywhere in the U.S., which is fairly flexible. The remaining 5% of remote jobs can be performed from anywhere in the world.

Especially given the state of today’s workplace, having the ability to truly work from anywhere enables people to take their jobs with them wherever they need to go. A recent survey we conducted in conjunction with Mental Health America found that, if given the choice, 66% of workers would prefer to work remotely full-time after the pandemic.

Work-from-anywhere jobs offer the ultimate in location flexibility and independence, whether that means taking care of an ailing family member several states away or moving to a town with a lower cost of living. The flexibility of a work-from-anywhere job also supports mental health. Our survey found that employees without flexible work options are almost two times more likely to have poor or very poor mental health compared to those who have flexible work options.

To help job seekers find these flexible positions, we’ve crunched the numbers and uncovered the companies that posted the most remote work-from-anywhere jobs on our site between April 1 and Aug. 31, 2020.
