  • Remote work still remains popular despite the pushback from major companies.

  • Large corporations like Meta and Google have issued return-to-office mandates, but many workers still want to work from home.

  • An analysis by FlexJobs found the top companies that offered the most work-from-anywhere roles.

Remote working options are still high-up on workers' list of demands when considering a job opportunity, even as numerous companies demand employees return to the office.

Major firms including Google, Meta, Goldman Sachs and X – formerly Twitter have walked back their remote work policies and put in place strict return to office mandates, with some even tracking workers' attendance in the office.

However, a 2023 Bankrate survey of over 2,000 adults in the US found that 64% of those already working prefer full remote work, instead of fully working in-person.
