Remote work for high-paying jobs to pick up this year, career site says

Return-to-office plans have been pushed back in cities across the US in the face of the Omicron variant, and some employees have been working from home since the pandemic first swept the country in March 2020. — Dreamstime/TNS

The shift to remote work for high-paying jobs will accelerate this year, according to a new report, defying city officials who are desperate to bring workers back and reinvigorate their economies.

More than a quarter of all professional positions in North America, largely concentrated in the US, will be remote by the end of this year, up from 18% at the end of 2021, according to Ladders Inc, the career site for work that pays at least US$100,000 (RM419,350). That means over 20 million jobs will not be going back to the office after the pandemic, Ladders said.
