Multinational giants like Airbnb and Pinterest are firmly in favor of remote or hybrid working, despite a reversal of the trend of remote working from the pandemic years in favor of a return to the office.
Telecommuting: Amazon, Meta and Disney call workers back to the office
As a large number of workers still prefer to work remotely, companies have good reason to favor teleworking or the hybrid model, hoping to attract new talent.
In the United States, technology, marketing and healthcare are the industries with the highest number of telecommuting jobs. And since many multinational giants are headquartered in the transatlantic superpower, some career opportunities are open to people who live hundreds of miles from the physical headquarters of the companies in question, in various locations around the world, including Greece.
