PLANO, Texas, Feb. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- For the second year in a row—and distinguishing itself among more than 47,000 businesses—Working Solutions made the top 10 out of this year's FlexJobs Top 100 companies offering the most "remote-friendly" opportunities.
The 2017 annual ranking placed Working Solutions, a leader in distributed workforces for more than 20 years, at #7. That's ahead of name brands such as Sutherland Global Services, Convergys and IBM.
Last year, the Plano-based contact center outsourcer made #9 out of the Top 10. It ranked #13 in 2015.
Recognizes Legit, Remote Jobs
Kim Houlne, founder and chief executive of this woman-owned business, said: "It's gratifying, for us as a private company and for our thousands of independent agents nationwide, to again earn this respect and distinction.
"And it's especially rewarding coming from FlexJobs, an industry leader in recognizing legitimate, work-at-home opportunities."
Writing for Forbes Personal Finance, Laura Shin reports that FlexJobs evaluated job postings from its database of nearly 50,000 companies to determine its Top 100.
"Such opportunities seem to be increasing — the percentage of workers doing all or some of their work at home increased from 19% in 2003 to 24% in 2015," Shin writes, citing U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Further Validates On-Demand Business Model
In its announcement, FlexJobs states remote workforces are "often used strategically by companies to reduce costs, improve productivity, increase retention, hire the best talent, and reduce the negative environmental impacts of commuting."
This news further validates that the on-demand business model — pioneered by Working Solutions in 1996—is made for modern times, observed Houlne. "Anything less leaves you behind."
