SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Liveops Inc., the leading provider of skilled workforces for customer service and sales, today announced that it earned the number four ranking on FlexJobs’ annual list of the Top 100 Companies to Watch for Remote Jobs in 2019. Last year, Liveops created 14,000 remote agent openings and anticipates that it will increase its agent population in 2019 significantly to fulfill the growing market demand.

FlexJobs determines its list from an analysis of their database of more than 51,000 companies’ and job posting histories to identify the 100 companies with the highest number of remote job openings during 2018. To be considered, the jobs offered by these companies had to be remote-friendly, either allowing for candidates to telecommute entirely or part of the time

“Earning a spot on the FlexJobs 100 is an important measure of success at Liveops, where we aim to grow the quality and quantity of work from home opportunities serving the largest brands in the world,” said Greg Hanover, CEO of Liveops. “The greatest driver of job growth at Liveops is the increase in our FORTUNE 500 enterprise clients. We strive to set the standard for enterprise-grade remote work -- meaning we can provide the talent, experience and security required to work with the best brands in the worlds of retail, travel, insurance, healthcare and beyond.”

Liveops provides a network of thousands of remote, U.S.-based contact center agents to large global brands. The company’s approach -- work from home agents -- is unique in that it is able to attract highly-qualified and otherwise underutilized workforce, something the traditional, brick and mortar call center industry has been unable to achieve due to their geographic limitations. Some characteristics of the Liveops agent population include:

  • 38 percent identify as work at home parents
  • 25 percent identify as caregivers
  • 19 percent identify as retirees or semi-retirees
  • Eight percent identify as veterans or military spouses
  • 71 percent of Liveops’ active agents are 40 years old or older
  • Only eight percent of active Liveops agents are under 29 years old

This is the fourth year in a row that Liveops has earned a top-five spot on the FlexJobs Top 100 Companies with Remote Jobs. On February 7th, Liveops will join the FlexJobs Remote Work Virtual Job Fair as a Gold Sponsor to connect with highly-skilled people looking to add flexibility to the way they earn.
