Remote work – is it good or bad for the US, WI, and Milwaukee’s tech region?
My response has been that it is good for the region, but a risk to regional employers and the US. However, until today, there was no way to validate my assumptions with data.
TECNA, the national trade group for tech associations, just released a study on the impact of remote work since the start of the pandemic. Based on job postings data, a leading indicator of trends in employment, this report confirms a continued shift toward remote work for tech workers. Since the start of the pandemic the remote portion of tech postings is up 421%, compared to 195% for non-tech postings.
