Last month we learned that IBM – for a long time the leading light in the remote work movement – had decided to end its flexible working culture for thousands of employees.
This week we learned that Amazon is going in the opposite direction. The commerce and cloud computing giant is adding 5,000 remote work positions.
“There are lots of people who want or need a flexible job—whether they’re a military spouse, a college student, or a parent—and we’re happy to empower these talented people no matter where they happen to live,” said Tom Weiland, Amazon Vice President for Worldwide Customer Service.
Working anywhere just got a little easier.
