TUCSON, Aris., November 23, 2021 / PRNewswire-PRWeb / – A new report from one of the internet’s leading remote job boards aims to paint a picture of what the workforce will be like after the pandemic.

Founded in 2007 by CEO Laura Spawn and CTO Adam Stevenson, Virtual Vocations is a 100% virtual family business that has connected job seekers with legitimate remote job postings from knowledgeable employers for the past 14 years.

In addition to providing a database that enables job seekers to easily search tens of thousands of remote job vacancies, Virtual Vocations has documented the rise in remote work over the years with a number of original reports that include both internal company data and the results of surveys conducted investigate job seekers and current work from home workers.

For its latest publication, The Permanent State of Remote Work, Virtual Vocations analyzed years of internal data and survey results, as well as new statistics published in Owl Labs’ fifth annual State of Remote Work, to provide a glimpse into the work landscape look like a pandemic.

The result, says Kimberly Back, Senior Job Data Content Producer at Virtual Vocations, is a holistic, data-driven look at the current state and future of remote and hybrid work in the US

“Remote work has driven conversations in the workplace since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic: will it continue after the pandemic? Are employees really as productive as they are in a physical office? As an employer, should I give this to my employees? a lot of autonomy? “Back said.” The answers to these often hot questions vary, so it was important for Virtual Vocations to get over the chatter and come up with data-driven conclusions about the real state of remote working in the US. “

Owl Labs’ 2021 Remote Work Status Report, in partnership with Global Workplace Analytics, includes the results of a survey of more than 2,000 full-time employees in the United States on topics including how they perceive hybrid and remote work arrangements and how they behave at Work has changed since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“By analyzing our own in-house corporate data and survey results, and then comparing our statistics with the latest State of Remote Work report from Owl Labs, we were able to create a holistic picture of remote work and its value to the modern workforce,” said Back, who wrote the Virtual Vocations report.

Among the results described in Virtual Vocations Permanent State of Remote Work: Data & Analysis:

  • Owl Labs’ 2021 remote work status report found that 73% of employees have returned to office work at least once a week since the pandemic began, but nearly 6 in 10 would prefer to work remotely all the time. A survey by Virtual Vocations showed similar results: 68% of respondents said that working from home was the least stressful form of work for them, while only 4% said it was at work.
  • The increasing popularity of remote working arrangements has given way to a massive increase in the number of remote working positions available to job seekers. The Virtual Vocations team added more than 520,000 entries to its remote job database in the first 10 months of 2021 alone, which means a 412% growth for the company’s job exchange since then January 2015.
  • Data from both Owl Labs and Virtual Vocations shows that across generations, workers have seized the remote working boom as an opportunity to shift themselves and their careers. Owl Labs’ state of remote working report found that baby boomers were “the largest age group to move to another state (35%),” while half of millennials and a third of Generation X members made international moves . Meanwhile, a survey by Virtual Vocations found that more than 80% of Millennials and Baby Boomers are interested in learning more about the digital nomad lifestyle.

According to Back, the data also shows that post-COVID-19 professionals prioritize flexibility – and they’re not afraid to make big changes to achieve a healthy work-life balance.

“We have found that in the candidate-centric job market that emerged during the pandemic and as a result of the major resignation in 2021, employees will continue to seek flexible, remote and hybrid job options. And they’re not afraid to quit if the employees can’t. “Or won’t deliver,” said Back. Approach the mindset. “
