Appen is ranked #77 among the top 100 of companies hiring telecommuters in 2016
Sydney, February 5, 2015— Appen is proud to announce that it has been named to FlexJobs’ annual list of the Top 100 Companies to Watch for Telecommuting and Remote Jobs in 2016. FlexJobs, a job service specializing in remote and flexible job opportunities, analyzed its database of over 40,000 companies’ job posting history in 2015 to determine which companies would be most likely to incorporate telecommuting into their hiring practices in 2016. To be considered, companies had to offer a telecommuting-friendly component to some of their jobs, such as an arrangement to telecommute entirely, part of the time, or as an option.
“Appen is proud to be recognized by FlexJobs as a leader in flexible opportunities,” said Ric Mercuri, Vice President of Global Human Resources. “Work-from-home arrangements can allow us to expand our full-time and independent contractor candidate pools and bring on the best candidates possible. Increased productivity and better work-life balance makes telecommuting a win-win for everyone, and we expect to continue the practice in 2016 and beyond.”
“Appen is one of the forward-thinking companies that understands that integrating telecommuting options is a smart business strategy,” said Sara Sutton Fell, founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “Telecommuting can benefit companies in so many ways, including cost savings, increased productivity and retention, better candidate pools, improved company culture and employee health, and many others.”
