This past weekend, we all lost an hour of sleep for more daylight. While the extra hour of sun in the evening is most welcome, many people find that their sleep schedules, overall alertness, and productivity levels are thrown off by the change. A study at the University of Washington found that people tend to lose an average of 40 minutes of sleep the night of daylight savings and are 20% more likely to be unfocused at work in the days following Wondering how you can best cope with daylight savings and make the most out of the change?

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM). At AdvantEdge, we want to highlight the importance of this month. According to the National Coalition on Domestic Violence, 1 in 4 women will experience physical violence from a partner. The purpose of this month is to empower and support survivors.
It’s 1988. The Washington Redskins are Super Bowl champions, Michael Jackson was looking at the “Man in the Mirror,” but most importantly, AdvantEdge Workspaces was founded. Thirty years ago, Founder and CEO Prakash Gavri saw a gap in the workspace industry. He noticed business owners were bogged down with office maintenance and basic but time-consuming administrative tasks.
On February 1, 2018, AdvantEdge celebrated its 30th anniversary as Washington, DC's premier workspace provider! For three decades, we have remained one of the few owner-operated and managed office space providers in the District.
AdvantEdge Workspaces is excited to ring in the New Year with SEVEN new Client Services Coordinators across our two DC locations! The position of Client Services Coordinator is the glue that holds AdvantEdge Workspaces together. From the bright smiles that greet each of our clients and their guests daily to the competent and supportive personal service that they provide, our Client Services Coordinators are integral to the success of our shared workspaces.
