Best Work-From-Home Companies 2021

It's no secret that remote work saw a huge surge in 2020; the question now is, which companies will stay remote-first in 2021, and how will they ensure that employees who work from home are set up for success?


We hope that our list of best work-from-home companies for 2021 will put you one step closer to finding a job that affords you the flexibility you crave, while avoiding the common pitfalls of some remote jobs (such as limited support/resources/benefits, poor communication, etc.).

As always, our list includes a mixture of totally remote and hybrid work-from-home companies. The 20 companies below were selected because:

  • They offer flexible work-from-home roles (and plan to continue to do so in 2021)
  • They know how to make remote workers feel like they're part of the team
  • They offer competitive compensation & benefits
  • They're committed to fostering diverse and inclusive workspaces
