With 25 million Americans working part-time, 20 million telecommuting, and 10 million working as independent contractors, employers can no longer ignore flexible workers as candidates for open jobs.

LinkedIn released a list Wednesday of the 100 most in-demand employers, based on interactions between the more than 175 million professionals and companies on the social network, including how often professionals visit and follow a company’s page.
