When you’re an entrepreneur struggling to launch a business, it can be quite tough to maintain a professional environment for you and your team to work in. Not only is rent extremely expensive, purchasing and maintaining the facilities can be difficult for cash-strapped entrepreneurs. To get around the prices, more people are turning to virtual and co-working spaces to get their businesses off the ground.
Here are 4 reasons why you should consider working in one of these:
1. Less overhead
A virtual office offers space and facilities at a fraction of the cost of a traditional office space. In addition, entrepreneurs just pay for what they need, whether it is a few hours on a hot desk or a receptionist to assist them.
2. Huge savings
Employees can save up to $10,000 and at least 15 days avoiding traffic. Not bad, huh?
3. Happy employees
Signing up for a virtual office allows employers to pay even just the use of the business address and receptionist, which means employees can work from home. A study from Telework Research Network shared that 30 million Americans work from a home office at least once a week. Plus, they are happier that way, and happy employees equal a more productive team.
4. Always connected
Some may argue that working “virtually” may not be ideal since teams need to collaborate. With today’s technology however, not only can teams collaborate anytime and anywhere, they can also meet with other like-minded individuals across the globe.
Today, having the right tools is more relevant than physical space for start-ups and small businesses. As Rob Bellmar or InterCall puts it, “To be a leader today, success starts with making ‘I’m going to work’ a state of being rather than a physical destination. Empower staff by giving them the tools they need to break down whatever barriers stand in their way. Then you will be prepared to take advantage of the collaboration economy.”
