How Flexible Workspace Can Benefit Your Business
Have you considered flexible workspace options? Are you looking for more or less out of your office workspace and your team? More and more people want flexibility in their jobs, from hours to location. Some people just work better at home, while others prefer private offices without distractions. Some people prefer project-based work instead of a set number of hours. Some people are early birds and others are night owls. An employer’s acceptance of flexible work schedules, when possible, will help your business. Some of the best minds need flexibility, the right time and space to think.
Reducing stress on your employees makes them more productive according to Karen Higginbottom, Forbes Contributor.
We could all appreciate and be loyal to anyone that could help reduce the stress in our lives. Flexible schedules work well with different lifestyles instead of forcing all employees to work the traditional 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. day. What about 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., or split the day with two different employees? Think about parents with children in school or aging parents. How might that impact a work schedule? With reduced stress your standard of work and creativity could receive a huge boost and your team would be stronger when you collaborate. Collaboration and productivity together sound pretty great, right?
Businesses are looking at how to get the most bang for their buck and flexibility is key. Companies may have traditional employees, contract employees, freelancers, gig workers, be managed by a solo-entrepreneur or serial-preneurs. If you have a job to do, you’ve got to have a place to do it! Why not consider more than the traditional do-it-yourself office space for all the people that work in your company? What if you’re going to your client’s space part of the day and the rest of the day is spent in a coffee shop? Is your office vacant for most of the day? Have you asked how much that mostly vacant, furnished conference room is costing? Have you been surprised by your common area maintenance fees lately? Are you dreaming of a just-in-time office space or meeting space to support you for client meetings? Work days, budgets and staff are causing business people to look for flexible options with the most value.
When it comes to flexible office space, a full-service private office offers the flexibility you need. A private office in a full-service office space usually allows 24/7 access. There is support staff, on an as needed basis, without having to add to your payroll. You’ll be able to request a support service while you’re traveling, and have access to your front office staff that manages your correspondence and guests while you’re away. The staff can even get your dry cleaning picked up, or offer meeting support so you can focus on your client’s needs. Sounds pretty flexible for a schedule, business support and your budget.
With a full-service private office come in at 8 p.m. and get to work if you want. Come in at 5 a.m., if you want. You get the idea. Schedule a team meeting in a meeting space and ask for private beverage service. Work from home or come in to the office, whatever provides the best circumstances to be productive. Let the full-service office staff take care of all ancillary office management problems, greet clients, print out your meeting handouts and make a pot of coffee. Enjoy much less office space management worry plus gain happy employees. This equals efficiency! Work can be fun, but only with the right team and workspace.
