Remote work has become increasingly common for marketing and other office jobs in recent years following the pandemic. In 2023, nearly 13% of full-time employees worked from home and 28% worked a hybrid model[1]. A recent study found that, 98% of US workers expressed a desire to work remotely, at least part-time.[2] Upwork’s Future Workforce Pulse reported that. It’s estimated that by 2025, 32.6 million Americans, nearly 22% of the US workforce, will work remotely. [3]

Remote marketing jobs are among the most popular category of remote jobs today. Many companies are specifically hiring remote marketing professionals. Considering the current tight job market, we think this is likely to continue. Not every marketing position is a fit for remote work, but when it is a fit for a role, the research on remote work has been very positive.

It’s important to note that the definition of “remote work” can vary from employer to employer, so make sure you check or ask for clarification. Some have fully remote positions, while others have partially remote roles.

These statistics indicate a significant shift towards remote work arrangements, which is likely to continue in the coming years. This trend provides ample opportunities for marketing professionals looking for remote jobs.

Estimates on the Amount of Remote Workers in the Workforce

Estimates on the amount of remote jobs is hard to come by as we’re in a period of change. Some companies have pulled back on their remote work policies since the pandemic, but still allow for some remote work.

  • Gallup reports that 8 in 10 people work hyrbrid or remote.
  • Owl Labs estimates that 26% of workers aged 22 to 65 claim to work remotely at least occasionally.
  • Upwork estimates that 26% of the American workforce has worked remotely at least partially, since 2021 (again, the pandemic was the catalyst for remote work).
  • Forbes reports that 12.7% of full-time employees work from home; 28.7 work a partially remote hybrid.
  • FlexJobs claims that 44% do not allow for work, and only 16% are fully remote.

The bottom line is that the research data is all over the board, and some of it may reflect the mindset of many organization C-levels being uncertain on where they stand when it comes to remote work when we’re not in the midst of a pandemic. In any case, one thing is certain. Many in the workforce desire remote work. MarketingHire will continue you to keep you updated on current research and trends in this area.
