How Remote Work Can Accelerate Diversity and Inclusion Efforts

When COVID-19 struck, many companies implemented work-from-home policies to help slow the spread. In the year that followed, Hired noticed a sizable uptick in remote work opportunities for candidates. Of all the companies currently on our platform, 50% have at least one open remote role—and of those organizations, 29% are only hiring remote candidates. What’s more, a staggering 90% of Hired candidates are open to remote work.

Along with decreased business expenses and increased productivity, remote work policies offer a powerful opportunity for organizations to improve diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
