According to the Q1 2022 survey by Ladders, 24% of all job posting in the US and Canada are now for permanent remote positions—an increase from 18% in Q4 2021 or roughly 3MM jobs.
This is mostly led by fields in technology but similar trends are happening everywhere. For example, software development job postings went from 2.9% remote in Q1 2020 to 33.44% in Q1 2022.
- The share of remote workers fell from 35% to 11% of those who were working remotely due to COVID-19
- A 10x increase in remote hiring creates challenges for the back office
- Nearly 15 percent of all high-paying job listings are remote showing that these trends are impacting the top jobs in the country
