DENVER, Feb. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TeleTech Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTEC), a leading global provider of customer experience, engagement and growth solutions, is proud to announce that it has been named to FlexJobs' annual list of the 100 Top Companies to Watch for Telecommuting and Remote Jobs. This list is based on an analysis of over 47,000 companies and their telecommuting job posting histories in the FlexJobs database during 2016. TeleTech is ranked number four out of the 100 companies that had the highest number of telecommuting job openings on the FlexJobs site in 2016. To be considered for this list, the jobs offered by these companies had to be telecommuting-friendly, either allowing for candidates to telecommute entirely or part of the time.
"TeleTech is excited to be a part of the growing remote work trend, and proud to be recognized by FlexJobs as a leader in telecommuting job opportunities," said Michael Wellman, Chief People Officer, TeleTech. "By offering work-at-home opportunities, TeleTech has access to an expanded candidate pool which allows us to hire the best person for each available position, and our employees benefit from good work-life balance and schedule flexibility. These arrangements have been positive for both our company and our people."
In the past, TeleTech has hired for jobs with telecommuting options such as work-from-home customer care associate, process improvement consultant and technical support representative. This is the third time that TeleTech has been named as one of the top companies to watch for remote jobs by FlexJobs.
"The results of this year's list are in line with the overall growth trends we're observing in the flexible job marketplace, with increasingly diverse companies turning to the 'TRaD' (or telecommuting, remote, and distributed) model of work as an integrated business practice," said Sara Sutton Fell, founder and CEO of FlexJobs. "As more companies embrace remote work in meaningful ways, more people will have greater access to broader career and employment opportunities, creating a positive ripple effect on our economy."
There has been notable growth in telecommuting in recent years and the movement towards a more remote and mobile workforce is growing stronger. 68 percent of U.S. workers say, in the future, they expect to work remotely instead of commute to an office every day.
