Remote work is here to stay, providing today’s workforce with the potential to have a successful career from anywhere in the world. The Wall Street Journal recently ranked the top 10 locations for remote work, and three communities in Missouri made the list. In fact, Springfield, Missouri, took the No. 1 spot.
The Springfield region is in southwest Missouri and boasts a population of nearly 500,000. With its affordable cost of living, high-speed broadband, easy access to an airport that connects to large hubs, and a host of parks, restaurants and art venues, it’s easy to see why Springfield was named the best location for remote work.
Ranking No. 2 on the list is another Missouri community – Joplin, Missouri. The Joplin region is also in southwest Missouri and is known for its skilled talent, easy transportation access, competitive operating costs and a pro-business local government.
St. Louis, Missouri, was ranked No. 8 on the list of great places to live if you can work from home. The St. Louis region is home to nearly 3 million people and is recognized globally as a leader in agtech, financial services, advanced manufacturing, defense, health innovation and distribution.
Missouri embraces new companies and remote workers. Whether talent is searching for an urban lifestyle or a laid back environment in the heart of mother nature, Missouri has something for everyone.
