Remote work appears to be a new permanent feature of our economy. With most of these work models, new workers can choose where and how they want to work.
Companies embracing permanent work-from-home culture are seeing productivity increase. Widening the talent pool is yet another reason so many organizations are moving away from requiring staff to come into an office. Additionally, companies that have attempted to reopen their offices have been stymied by new variants or outbreaks that necessitated yet another shutdown or a delayed reopening. So some businesses are removing the guesswork altogether by deciding to remain fully remote — permanently.
Here’s what happened when these companies decided to pivot to remote work full-time:
- Enable employees to make major life changes.
- Allows people to relocate to lower-cost cities.
- Promotes a more diverse workforce.
- Reduces time spent commuting to and from an office.
- Increases productivity.

The Great Resignation: Then What?
According to a recent article published by CNBC, 55% of Americans plan to seek other employment in the near future. This conclusion is based on a recent survey conducted by Bankrate’s August jobseeker survey. The desire to work from home is in many cases the reason that employees resign.
Millions are unemployed, but many industries are finding it difficult to hire. However, the unemployment rate continues to fall. Claims for unemployment insurance benefits fell to a pandemic low of 2.82 million in the week ending Aug. 14. Yet, job openings rose to an all-time high of 10.1 million at the end of June. Separations also edged up to 5.6 million, and the quit rate was 2.7%, just below the April high of 2.8%.
According to the survey, flexible working conditions top the list of job seekers (56%), but there are many reasons why Americans are looking – more than higher pay and security. One of those reasons is a desire for a better work-life balance.
Among those making $30,000 or less, 52% put flexibility as their top reason to look for a new job.
Similar results were observed in a survey by Ally Bank in August, where 40% of consumers said they’re considering changing jobs in the next six months, citing remote work, career advancement, and flexibility as reasons.
Are you planning to leave your job for better opportunities?
In that case, Emily Shallal, executive director of consumer strategy and innovation at Ally Bank, advises you to make sure you have enough savings in place to continue to pay for essentials. These essentials include things such as rent, utilities, and food — while you’re still working.
She advises saving enough funds to free you to deal with the period of unemployment necessary to explore opportunities. She also suggests paying down or refinancing as much of your high-interest debt as possible. Another strategy is to obtain some part-time gig to offset the costs of searching for or building a new career.
Observing how the job market develops during this unprecedented economic situation should be interesting. There should be incredible competition between employers for talent and between applicants looking for something new.
