Minneapolis' remote job postings explode
Companies in the Twin Cities are increasingly open to remote-friendly roles, a new analysis finds.
Driving the news: Venture capital fund Telstra Ventures looked at hundreds of thousands of jobs posted across the country and ranked the Minneapolis region seventh in the nation for remote work.
- About 15% of the jobs listed in the Minneapolis region between April 1 and June 30, 2021 were remote-friendly, up from less than 1% for the same period in 2020.
Yes, but: While many employees hope to continue to work remotely after offices reopen, not all businesses are on board, as Axios' Kim Hart reports.
- These opportunities still represent just a small share of the overall market.
The big picture: The Minneapolis area is in line with the national average — 14% of the postings analyzed by Telstra were for permanently remote positions.
- Columbus, Ohio, led the nation, with 27% of jobs open to workers based outside the region.
- Houston, meanwhile, is the least remote-friendly city, with only 2.8% of jobs posted being remote.
