Need To Work From Home? Check Out These 5 Companies
If you have a chronic illness or disability, physically going to work every day can be difficult, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find employment. With the right accommodations, many people are able to work at least part-time.
Here are 5 companies that offer plenty of telecommuting positions that may be right for you.
Humana: Insurance company Humana offers a variety of work-from-home positions as part of its workforce. Employees receive health and financial benefits and have the opportunity to receive overtime and bonuses.
Remote positions range from financial services, sales and customer care. Humana was named a “Top 25 Noteworthy Company” by DiversityInc in 2015. The company also prioritizes hiring veterans with disabilities.
Hilton: One of the largest hospitality groups in the U.S., Hilton routinely hires virtual employees for positions across the country. In addition to being remote, many positions also offer flexible schedules for employees unable to work from 9 to 5.
Some full-time positions may require occasional travel depending on the role. Full-time jobs come with benefits, as do customer service positions.
Apple: If you are technologically savvy, a remote position at Apple may be appealing. Apple’s at-home advisors and team managers are virtual positions which provide technical support throughout the U.S. and internationally.
The full-time positions come with time off, benefits and discounts on Apple products. The company says it prides itself on inclusion and is always “exploring new ways to support employees with disabilities.”
Amazon: America’s largest online retailer plans to add 5,000 part-time remote employees this year. According to CNBC, these customer service positions will pay approximately $10 per hour. For those interested in working in a different department, Amazon offers remote positions for managers and engineers.
Full-time remote employees also receive a number of medical benefits including company-paid short-term and long-term disability insurance, reimbursement for adoptions and a “ramp back” program which allows new moms or primary caregivers eight weeks of flexible time to return to the workforce.
Aetna: One of the largest health insurance providers in the U.S., Aetna hires remote employees for a number of different job types. According to its website, the company has more than 100 offices across the U.S. and more than 43 percent of its employees telecommute.
The company pays both salaried and hourly employees a minimum base wage of $16 an hour and provides a variety of benefits including health insurance and enhanced medical benefits. These enhanced benefits, the company claims, can save eligible workers up to $4,000 on out-of-pocket health care costs.
