The Flex Index: Your Guide to Flexible Work Offerings
“When am I expected in the office?”
Before 2019, this wouldn’t even be top of mind for most job seekers. Yet three years and a global pandemic later, things have certainly changed.
The demand for flexible work is at an all-time high. Reports show 50% of applications submitted on LinkedIn today are for remote jobs.
Yet amidst this explosive demand, there remains a massive insight gap on how work location flexibility varies across critical dimensions such as industries, metros, functions, and more. To make it even harder on job seekers, no two companies describe their approach to flexibility the same.
That brings us to today and our exciting news…
Introducing the Flex Index by Scoop
The Flex Index by Scoop is the most robust source of company in-office requirements, from fully in-office to remote work and everything in between.
Today, the Flex Index represents nearly 4,000 companies, 25,000 office locations, and 100 million people.
How it Works
The Flex Index allows anyone to easily find companies based on flexibility offerings—from Fully Remote to Full Time in Office. Visitors can filter search criteria by:
- Fully Remote
- Employee’s Choice
- Min Days / Week
- Specific Days / Week
- Min & Specific Days / Week
- Min % of Time
- Full Time In Office
Industry (ex: Insurance or Professional Services)
Location (ex: San Francisco or North Carolina)
Here’s a closer look at how it all works from our VP of GTM, Michael Samuels:

The Flex Report
In addition to launching the Flex Index, we’ve also released the inaugural Flex Report. The Flex Report provides never before collected insights on company office requirements and how they vary across industries, geographies, and company sizes. This report offers the perspective and context every modern employee needs as they pursue a path toward the right version of flexible work for them.
In the Flex Report, you’ll find the following:
- A breakdown of office requirements across US firms
- Details on how many days and even which days companies require in-office work
- Work location flexibility by industry
- The most and least flexible US states and metros
- How flexibility varies by company size
Our Flexible Work Journey Is Just Beginning
The world has changed dramatically over the last three years. In 2019, it would have been unthinkable for most US companies to offer some level of flexibility where employees work.
One thing is clear: we are all still very early in this flexible work journey. Starting today, the Flex Index aims to shine a light on trends in flexibility, focused on enabling job seekers to find opportunities that match the right level of flexibility for them.
