Best Cities for Remote Working

The Pandemic not only forced businesses to switch up their practices and adapt to employees working from home, but it also proved businesses could thrive with remote employees. As businesses consider options of fully reopening or allowing employees to continue working from home, housing platform Nestpick conducted a study to find the cities most open to remote employment. The data includes those where legislation makes it easier for corporations to offer this employment paired with the costs and livability of each city. If you are perfectly fine with never going back into an office again, these cities are for you.
