Which Companies will Succeed in the New World of Remote Work?
As more and more companies are being forced to transition to remote work (in some cases indefinitely), we put together a new score that measures the suitability of jobs to remote work.
By looking at hundreds of millions of job postings, we tagged positions that explicitly mentioned the job could be done remotely. For some jobs, it was a lot (ex: web developer) and for others it was barely mentioned (ex: bartender).
Here’s a link to a plot that maps the universe of jobs to this score. Red dots are jobs that are not well suited to remote work and blue dots are jobs that are well suited to remote work.
Below are the jobs that are most and least suitable to being done remotely:
