Employees aren’t the only ones Vermont is trying to draw to its rolling hills: Companies that move to Vermont can get up to 5,000 in total credits in 2019 and up to 0,000 in 2020 to cover relocation costs, equipment expenses, broadband updates and employee membership fees for co-working spaces.
More companies across the country are allowing employees flexibility, according to Kareem Bakr, director at the global recruitment organization Selby Jennings. Some 50% of companies the firm works with offer at least one day of remote work per year, and 25% allow employees to work full-time from wherever they want outside the office.
“They are becoming more comfortable with employees working remotely because it allows them to tap into different talent pools,” he said. “The biggest incentive is work-life balance.”.
