2023 Off To Promising Start For Remote Workers

AUSTIN, Texas - Jan. 11, 2023 - PRLog -- The new year is off to a promising start for remote and flexible work, said Remote Worker CEO Joseph Boll, as a tight labor market potentially creates new flexible options for those seeking to work remotely this year.

Remote Worker is an online jobs board and resource website for remote workers, remote work jobseekers, and hiring managers, employers and HR personnel seeking to recruit and hire the top talent for remote positions.

"Remote work is still here, and will be for the future, despite the tug-of-war for talent, RTO mandates and the gradually decreasing effects of the pandemic," said Boll. "Now, at the start of the year, 'recession' is the buzzword that's on everyone's minds. Even still, a tight labour market could signal good things to come for those looking to demand remote work."

Boll noted that flexible work options appear to be winning the "war for talent", with more American workers and jobseekers prioritizing job opportunities that allow some measure of flexibility. Additionally, he said some companies that previously took a hard stance against remote work might be softening as recession fears begin to take hold.

"We've even seen some big names reverse their position about remote work and concede to doing things the more beneficial way," he said.

Further, the CEO said, companies looking to start cutting costs ahead of an expected economic downturn could back out of physical offices to save on rent.

Boll added, "Instead of what some fearmongers suggest — namely, that remote workers could be among the first to be let go in the worst of a recession — it's actually the case that more senior employees are more likely to have remote work options in an organization that doesn't offer it to everyone. It's too early to tell, but this current environment could find employees well positioned to ask for more flexibility from their employers who are seeking to head off labor shortages before they start."
