People from these metros find new jobs in Roanoke

ROANOKE, Va. (STACKER) – The COVID-19 pandemic has really changed the way we think about the nature of work, and in particular, where we live versus where we are employed.

Pre-pandemic, telework or work-from-home situations existed, but they were not the norm. Nearly six in 10 Americans rarely or never teleworked before the pandemic. Months later, just over half of the workers who could were working from home. Although vaccines are on the horizon – and with that, an imminent return to office life – many still prefer this new way of working.

Employees have discovered that working from home definitely has an advantage. No more long and stressful journeys. They were more productive. Having more flexibility over time allowed them to better manage a household. For those living in expensive real estate markets, the pandemic has presented an opportunity to make the leap to a more affordable city without sacrificing big-city pay.

While many employers want to bring workers back to the office to some extent, the work-from-home trend is likely to last. With it, small towns can continue to thrive as people leave big cities for a different way of life. So where in your state do people come to settle and enjoy this new work lifestyle from anywhere?
