While many companies are trying to bring employees back to the office, it seems like the hybrid (or flexible) model is here to stay, allowing for at least some remote work — a trend that is supported by data.

A recent McKinsey survey shows that when respondents had the chance to work flexibly, 87% of them took it. In addition, the survey shows that 58% of polled Americans said they have the opportunity to work from home at least one day a week, while 35% of respondents report have the option to work from home five days a week.

However, while 54% of those polled consider themselves “anywhere workers,” only 5% of remote jobs are “work-from-anywhere” jobs, according to a FlexJobs survey. The survey notes that “the playing field for these highly desired roles can be competitive.”

To add to the competitive nature of these jobs, FlexJobs detailed in a blog post that: “The reality is that 95% of the remote jobs our researchers find actually have geographic requirements, whether it’s a specific state, city, country, or even region of the country.”

“Prior to the pandemic, digital nomads were often seen as a fringe way of working and limited mostly to freelance jobs,” Sara Sutton, founder and CEO at FlexJobs, said via a press release. “But as companies adopt more flexible arrangements, including location independence and remote work options, we anticipate people will have more opportunities than ever before to work remotely — and from anywhere in the world. We hope this list of companies and resources helps job seekers and aspiring ‘anywhere workers’ find careers that support both their personal ventures and professional goals,” Sutton added.
