Remote Workers Stake Their Claim
Over the past few years, we have all experienced cultural changes affecting our day-to-day lives. One of the more prominent has been the rise of the remote worker. As many of us re-evaluate our priorities, this burgeoning trend is a positive cultural shift toward better work-life balance. According to Zippia’s 25 Trending Remote Work Statistics, 66% of Americans currently work remotely in some capacity, with projections showing up to 36.2 million Americans working remotely by 2025. That’s a whopping 417% increase from pre-pandemic levels!
Positive results on both sides of the employment equation are feeding this trend. Businesses report a 68% improvement in productivity with remote work versus in-office. And when employees can eliminate the requirement to live near their job or business — fresh doors of opportunity open.
Savvy remote workers are maximizing this trend by relocating to the Lake Tahoe/Northern Nevada region for quality and quantity of life. What once may have been a weekend ski or annual summer destination is now a place to call home.
The Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada (EDAWN) recently presented its State Of The Economy address. Celebrating 40 years of recruiting, expanding, and supporting quality companies for positive economic growth, they’re the local “Rockstars” who have successfully courted household names such as Apple, Tesla, Google, and countless other companies to the Greater Reno-Sparks region.

And while news of a pending recession looms, the Reno/Lake Tahoe region is expected to experience continued job and wage growth, especially in tech and manufacturing. Did you know that household incomes for Washoe County have risen 46% in the last seven years? Or that remote workers can enjoy the Lake Tahoe lifestyle yet work for one of the many companies relocating to Nevada? Of course, with growth comes challenges with housing, education, and infrastructure. Still, this expansive geographical region provides a vital buffer against economic downturns while providing an attractive cost of living and a globally renowned lifestyle.
