About Dallas Work From Home Jobs
One important aspect to note is that not all jobs are possible to do remotely, meaning work from home positions largely apply only to salaried, white-collar workers instead of essential workers, like those at a restaurant, grocery store, or in healthcare industries that require employees to be physically in a workspace to do their jobs. With that in mind, most of the currently available work from home positions in Dallas are concentrated in the insurance and sales industries.
Assurance Independent Agents is one of the largest remote work employers in the city, selling insurance and handling claims. Other major sectors that have transitioned to work from home opportunities are companies in the financial industry. Fidelity Brokerage Services, JP Morgan, and Alleare consulting have all transitioned to largely remote positions.
Working from home definitely has its appeal. It allows for greater flexibility during the day and, for working parents, can save a significant amount of money on childcare. The drawbacks are not insignificant either, though. Some employees report struggling to maintain a steady work-life balance when work and life happen in the same space. Home is also full of distractions that make work more challenging: from children to pets to dirty dishes piled in the sink, it can be much more difficult to focus without the quiet and structure of an office.
Still, many employees favor it for its flexibility and the ability to structure their own schedules in a way they could not while working from an office. There is a very real possibility that many companies will continue to operate remotely even as stay-at-home orders are lifted, particularly in remote sales, insurance, tech, and financial sectors that are most conducive to a work from home environment.
