Recognized by FlexJobs as a Woman-owned, Remote-workforce Company
Don’t you just love the follow-on stories born from headline-making news. Such is the case with the recent piece, “15 Top Companies for Remote Jobs Run by Women.”
Celebrating International Women’s Day this month, freelance-workforce leader FlexJobs posted the piece, taken from its 2019 Top 100 Companies with Remote Work, where Working Solutions placed #5.
In its latest posting, FlexJobs again highlights our on-demand contact center company, which I started 23 years ago in a one-person office. Working Solutions is now named along with other women-led businesses such as Appen, Williams-Sonoma and A Place for Mom, a client of ours.
Senior career specialist Brie Weiler Reynolds writes: “At majority remote companies, 19% of CEOs are women, compared to only 5% of Fortune 500 companies and 4.8% of S&P 500 companies. Furthermore, 28% of completely remote companies have women CEOs, founders, or presidents.”

The reasons why remote rules include more work-life flexibility and a leveler professional playing field. To them, we at Working Solutions—as a woman-run, remote-workforce company—would like to add:
- Caring culture: Fostered by leaders and embraced by liked-minded employees and agents (independent contractors).
- Liberated approach: Freed from traditional workplace constraints, redefining the rules and roles.
- Shared purpose: Achieved through common goals that unite workers, on staff and freelance.
FlexJobs spotlights businesswomen, unencumbered by institutional thinking, envisioning remote as change management in the making: “When it comes to the ongoing topic of women in leadership, there appears to be an interesting intersection between women leaders and remote work.”
So, here’s to the women who champion this change and make virtual viable.
Interestingly, three of the five top companies for remote jobs in 2019 were either founded or cofounded by women, demonstrating the positive intersection between remote work and women in leadership positions.
