In the early days of the coronavirus pandemic, many jobs that typically required going into an office transformed into work-from-home jobs — though eventually many companies called people back into physical offices. However, knowing how popular remote options are, some companies regularly hire for positions that are “work from anywhere,” giving their employees the perk of location independence — and this is now something that many workers want. According to a McKinsey American Opportunity Survey, 87% of respondents answered that, if given a chance to work from home, they would take it.
