Coworking Makes Teleworking Work!
Written By: Guest Author Daniel Moore
Some people love the idea of working from home, especially if it suits their lifestyle better than working in the office. Perhaps they have a long commute, small children or health conditions that make working from home easier than travelling all the way into the office every day.
It's no surprise that more and more businesses are jumping at the chance to own “DC virtual office space” rather than shelling out thousands for rent on a physical office. Virtual office space offers the impression of having an office at an upscale location without the need to be physically located there. Below are just some of the benefits that a virtual office space provides for your growing or already established company.
In business, appearances matter. Whether it’s answering your own calls or scribbling your phone number on a cocktail napkin instead of being ready with a business card, professionalism can be a looming hurdle between new businesses and future growth. Acquiring virtual office space offers an inexpensive solution to such obstacles by providing professional services to emerging organizations. From an air of legitimacy to organizational assistance, virtualization can revolutionize the way your small business or startup is perceived.
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.
No two businesses are alike- so why should offices be the same? A workspace should be reflective of the business in it. A unique space can take a business to the next level. Everyone has seen typical “cookie cutter” offices that rarely reflect the work style or atmosphere of the business in the space.
There are many different types of workspaces to fit one’s needs, but determining the best fit for your business can be overwhelming. We have gathered the essential facts- now it is your turn to see which of the five workspace profiles fits you the best!
As with the rest of society, modern technology has changed the way we do business. We work through clouds now; we communicate via dropboxes and video conferencing. Our new digital tools make it so easy to connect remotely that face-to-face interactions, and putting on a tie or makeup to do so, can seem more like a chore than a necessity. Not all companies are created equal and not all employees interact with clients (or each other) on a daily basis. The ease of remote accessibility has led to a spike in telecommuters and many young organizations are taking note of the advantages.
