In the first quarter of 2022, nearly 25 percent of job postings at the 50,000 largest companies in the United States and Canada were for permanently remote positions, according to the job listing service Ladders, up from four percent before the pandemic. The trend has altered the travel landscape, blurring the line between business and personal travel. Airbnb reported that the number of long-term stays (over 28 days) doubled in the first quarter of 2022 compared to 2019. The company has even introduced an “I’m Flexible” search functionality for travelers who don’t need to get back to an office on a specific date.
