Remote work went from the third most sought-after benefit in 2019 to the most popular in 2020, emphasizing the impact of companies working remotely due to the pandemic. Another benefit that saw a large jump year over year was relocation assistance: It was the ninth most desired benefit in 2019 but rose to the sixth spot in 2020.
