The workforce is changing rapidly. More people are moving to freelance work, switching their workspaces to coworking, and some are even ditching the concept of a desk altogether. The later is a new trend that people refer to as being a digital nomad. They are people whose work does not require a set location. They can work wherever, whenever, and all they need is a laptop.
So you’ve decided to lease DC office space from a serviced office provider. On the surface, providers of this type of office space can appear deceivingly similar in their offerings, pricing, and amenities.
For most people, Memorial Day weekend symbolizes the unofficial start of summer. It rings in the season of lazy days, BBQs, and more.

Here are some tips on how to enjoy the summer months while still staying on track at work!

The way we do business is ever-changing; and whether you’re expanding, downsizing, or just starting, the type of office space in which you choose to work is a major decision for your company. While the perks of a serviced, shared office space are numerous, below are the top four most appealing incentives for those considering shared workspaces.
A good office space is like a good employee: no hidden strings, no excuses, and ready to start working for you immediately. Shell space, in the world of workplaces, can seem similar to the employee who trumped up their resume. Unfurnished and unfinished, shell space takes on all the responsibility without any of the qualifications; often leaving you on the hook for more work than expected.
Whether your business has been around for years or is just starting out, shared office space can benefit you and your company in many ways. With conference rooms, day offices, reception areas, and business lounges available to your staff on-demand, you can expect your workspace to leave a positive impression on your clients.
In running and maintaining a successful business, planning ahead is always encouraged. However, this is easier said than done especially when the future is uncertain. In situations like these, it’s ideal to develop plans that are as flexible as possible and to work with people who understand the nature of an ever-growing, ever-changing business. Here at AdvantEdge, our ongoing goal is to evolve with your business and help you succeed any way we can. Our job is to help you juggle the seemingly constant internal changes of your office in order to help your business continue to grow over time.
