Are you currently hiring for an in-office job you wish was done remotely? Or maybe you’re looking for a way to expand the remote team in your company.

With 80% of workers not wanting to return to the office, to keep a team with happy employees, companies are now opting for flexible work options. This is an advantage for both companies and their teams. It improves productivity, reduces equipment costs, lowers employee turnovers, less commuting time, higher work-life balance, and gives your business access to a wider talent pool.

Technology is the perfect guide to help you determine whether a job can be done remotely or not. Jobs that require heavy or consistent computer use are a great pointer. Tools like G suite, Slack, Asana, Zoom, Trello, Monday, Yammer, and many others have created the virtual workplace possible for both hybrid and remote-first companies.

Here’s an easy list to help guide you in figuring out if that role you’re hiring for can be remote:

  • 100% online
  • Communication centers around digital platforms
  • Meeting and communicating with people in a different city or country
  • Primarily phone communication required
  • Center around inputting digital data into a computer

If the points on this list match the requirements of your job description, then you’re up for a new remote employee! There are many areas already available for remote work, you can check out lists online with positions that are already remote:
