Jobs for Stay-at-Home Parents: Transcription is a Leading Choice

 Becoming a professional transcriber is a highly sought after remote work position, which is accessible to anyone with an Internet connection.

According to experts, remote work will become one of the major business trends of 2019, and stay-at-home parents is a group choosing remote work more than others. 


The concept of the office has changed over the last decade as employees seek a better work/life balance, and it is expected that 50% of the workforce will be able to work remotely by 2020. The biggest benefit felt by employees regarding remote working is their ability to manage and structure their own time - 65% of employees believe they are more productive working from home. Additionally, the widespread use of the Internet means that remote workers can work from anywhere in the world - therefore, companies are not restricted to hiring from their local talent pools.

Parents are taking advantage of the changing office and remote work politics. Nearly 82% of working parents are interested more in telecommuting with flexible hours as opposed to other freelance positions, citing work and life balance as their main motivation. Nearly a quarter of parents with children under 18 carry out some of their work at home in order to spend more time with their families by avoiding lengthy commutes, office politics, and also reducing the cost of childcare.

For many parents with young children, the benefits of remote working are numerous. By telecommuting, parents are able to oversee the routines of their children and also spend more time with them by eliminating the need to commute to the office. For time conscious parents, remote working also removes the obligation to take part in lengthy meetings and social gatherings. In addition to the time-saving aspects, working from home also gives parents the opportunity to save on childcare costs as the costs of parenting are constantly rising. 


There are a number of jobs which can be done remotely, and they range from everything from mobile app developer, to copywriter, or transcriber.
