Hello everybody. It’s the second Tuesday in 2022, or as this lifelong Georgia fan 🏈 plans to call it, Stetson Bennett’s day, for the former, resilient walk-in quarterback who led his team to last night. his first national championship in four decades. This week at Forbes Careers:
– Reveal the top 100 companies for remote jobs
– Chief, the private network of women executives, goes national

Does RTO remind you of OMG? With the explosion of omicron across the country, many companies have again postponed their plans to return to the office. But if you’re like many office workers who’ve gotten used to sweatpants, couch desks, and canine coworkers, you might be thinking ‘never that again’.
To help, Forbes spoke with FlexJobs, who scour the web for flexible, remote jobs, about their ninth annual list of the top 100 companies for remote jobs.

While not surprisingly some (Liveops virtual call centers or remote academic support teams like Varsity Tutors), the list also includes more new companies than ever before and more jobs in fields like accounting, finance, marketing and HR, signaling that remote working is here to stay.

I spoke with co-founders Lindsay Kaplan and Carolyn Childers about how they developed their business during the pandemic, where the 1% of Chief’s income that is not from membership fees comes from (“cocktails”, m. Kaplan said), along with Ken Chenault, board member, investor and former CEO of American Express, explains why he likes Chief’s membership model.
