It’s Official — Insurance One of the Sectors with the Most Remote Working During COVID

The U.S. Census Bureau has finished its research and says workers in insurance, computer science, real estate and finance did the most working from home in the first years of the COVID-19 pandemic.

No surprise, laborers in driving occupations and and order fillers in warehouses and places like that had the fewest workers working from home.

That said, the numbers of people working from home is now dropping but it’s not dropping as much in insurance, computer science, real estate and finance.

  • Workers working from home in insurance went from 67% in 2019 to 43% in 2021
  • Computer science workers and mathematical jobs dropped from 60% to 30%
  • For workers in material moving occupations saw those working from home dropping from 97% to 96%

For all jobs in the United States, the numbers fell from 84% in 2019 to 74%.

Employees in other jobs — considered hybrid jobs — work some days at home and some days in the office or on site. They went up but not much. The increase went from increased 4% in 2020 to 6% in 2021.

Most work from home on Mondays and Fridays.
