2021 Top 100 Remote Work Companies to Watch


FlexJobs is excited to announce its eighth annual Top 100 Companies to Watch for Remote Jobs list! With the global pandemic forcing millions of people to work from home, 2020 brought remote work into the spotlight like never before. More companies and workers began to realize the benefits of remote work and many companies even switched to offering long-term or permanent remote jobs.


This article written and published by Emily Courtney provides invaluable information. Through an analysis of the remote job posting histories of approximately 57,000 companies in the FlexJobs database, they've pinpointed the companies that offered the most remote jobs from January through December 2020. “Remote” means the openings must offer some level of remote work, including “remote – during pandemic,” “100% remote work,” “partial remote work,” or “option for remote work.”


For professionals interested in remote work options in 2021, this list is a great place to start your research!

Notable Companies Supporting Remote Work

Lionbridge earned the number one spot on the 2021 Top 100 list, with companies such as Williams-Sonoma and Sutherland among the top 10 companies with the highest number of remote jobs posted in 2020.


Citrix, which is new to the Top 100, has embraced the value of remote work. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the company shifted its own long-term remote work strategy to ensure its workforce was equipped to meet the needs of not only its customers, but also its workforce.


We are excited to be listed on the FlexJobs Top 100 list this year. As pioneers in digital workspace technology, we have always supported remote work through the necessary tools to work and collaborate securely in any work environment, explains Steve Nguyen, Vice President and General Manager of Public Sector at Citrix.


This year has taught us that, above all, enabling a workforce that is healthy in both body and mind is key to business continuity plans. Though we cannot predict the end to the COVID-19 crisis, nor the beginning of the next, we understand that successful remote work strategies can help mitigate the impacts, Nguyen concluded.


Newcomers to the Top 100 list include Pfizer and Supporting Strategies, while others, such as ADP, BELAY, and Kelly/KellyConnect were also on last year’s list. Dell Technologies, CVS Health, and Salesforce are among the 11 companies that have been featured on the list since 2014, showing a sustained commitment to including remote work in their standard business practices.


Nineteen companies on this list are part of The Department of Defense Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP), which connects military spouses with employers who have committed to recruit, hire, promote, and retain them.

Overall, the companies on the Top 100 list are headquartered across 11 different countries, demonstrating a continuing global acceptance and adoption of remote work over the past year.
