Much has been written about the digital workplace. Some remaine tethered to the past and insist on workers being in office five days a week. I actually know of one Silicon Valley-based technology company that assigns “work monitors” to take roll every day, verifying and reporting if a worker was at her or his desk at 9 a.m. every morning and at 5 p.m. every afternoon. It should come as no surprise that the company’s stock hovers at single digits, and it struggles to retain and recruit quality workers.
Yet, despite laggards such as the aforementioned company, many companies recognize the power of offer their workers flexible work options (remote entirely and hybrid scenarios). And solopreneurs and small businesses are at the forefront when it comes to adoption of the digital workplace. The benefits have been documented by numerous studies. Some of the most prominent findings include: Read more...
Remote work has risen in popularity over the past couple of years as technology has made it easier for professionals to work from anywhere, at any time. The number of freelancers and self-employed professionals has likewise increased, and flexible work options have become one of the most coveted benefits workers seek from a company.
While some remote workers might choose to work from home, others find it beneficial to work from a serviced workspace or a coffee shop. Still, regardless of whether you are self-employed or part of a company team and you are working remotely, in order to be successful as a remote worker, it is extremely important that you always present yourself in a professional manner. Here are four way to be successful while working remotely. Read more...
Leasing or buying an office space for your company is very expensive. Luckily, it’s no longer the only option anymore. There are a variety of alternatives these days that make it a lot cheaper to find a place to do business. Where once freelancers couldn’t afford to work anywhere except at home or at coffee shops, and small/medium businesses had to sell the farm to pay for space, companies of almost any size can now find office space for a fraction of the cost. It’s all achieved by instant offices: renting fully furnished offices from another business.
Three options for temporary office space—serviced office space, virtual offices, and rentable meeting rooms—are gaining in popularity. With more and more businesses choosing to use these services, the traditional office is rapidly becoming obsolete. The question is, which of these services is right for your business? To help answer that question, we’ll take a look at these three, and which situations they are most applicable for.Read more...
Having a workspace is crucial to being productive. Whether you’re building handmade furniture or building a corporate empire, you need someplace where you can get to work. It’s almost like a second home. That’s likely part of the reason why, when you don’t have a workspace, you feel a little homeless.
In the past, companies large and small have shelled out thousands to lease office spaces, and even more to buy or build their own. It was an unavoidable part of the package deal: if you wanted to work, you needed a place to do it, and you needed space for all the people who would work with you. Those who couldn’t afford the floor space had to work out of their own homes and looked a lot less legitimate to their clients back then because of it.Read more...
Solopreneurs and small businesses are learning that permanent office space is no longer a requisite. They can use virtual address solutions to secure professional locations, for both their headquarters office as well as regional offices, that convey the right brand image.
When they need day offices, coworking spaces, and conference rooms, solopreneurs and small businesses can simply use temporary rented space. Though other use cases could be cited, the following are the more prevalent:
Working in an office setting affords solopreneurs and small business professionals with a chance to interact with other like-minded solopreneurs and small business professionals. This stimulates collaborative thinking and helps users to focus their attention on work-related tasks. Coworking spaces are great fits in these scenarios, though day offices can be the right choice in some cases. They also come with other services such as dog walking, on-site message therapists, upscale lounges, and other perks.
When it comes to meeting space rental, you can never ask too many questions. Take the time to consider all your needs. Understand any special requirements your attendees may have. And be sure to ask the seven questions below, along with any others you can think of.
Do you provide audio-visual equipment?
Most successful meetings these days demand visual props in the form of PowerPoint presentations, clever videos or imagery displayed on a large screen to help attendees catch the vision. Your meeting could be a disaster if you’re expecting your meeting space to have these elements and you show up to discover there’s just a white board, and a small one at that. Always ask specifically about the audio-visual equipment that’s on site—and the cost. You don’t need sticker shock when you get there. You need to know what you are waking into and what it the price tag is to hold your successful meeting. Read more...

As we head into 2018, there is much cause for optimism. Stock markets are up, and economic indicators are all trending upwards. How you motivate and engage with your employees and customers plays a critical role in the success of a company.
Employee engagement remains a problem for most businesses. Gallup reports that only one-third of workers in the U.S. are engaged. The result is high turnover and diminished productivity. For businesses with engaged employees, they see better business outcomes—from better customer service, to happier customers, to better profit margins.
Much has been written on the subject of customer engagement in recent years. Unless customers are highly engaged and advocates of your company, products, or services, they could be here today and gone tomorrow. And you want to retain your customers; as reported in the Harvard Business Review, it is between 5x and 25x more difficult to acquire a new customer than to keep an existing one. Read more...
Holidays are supposed to be a time of family, friends, food, and fun. But for many business owners, it’s a time of pressure and stress.
A Healthline survey found that 65 percent of respondents from Generation X and 61 percent of Millennials feel some stress during the holidays. About 62 percent of Baby Boomers fell into the same category. If you feel stressed during the holidays, you’re certainly not alone.
“Stress is heightened during the holiday season,” Bill Scheinman, a San Francisco-based life coach who focuses on stress reduction, told Entrepreneur.com. “There is the existential stress that comes as the year nears its end. We assess the place we’re at in our lives and decide if we’re achieving our life goals or not.”
One of the biggest stressors is work. According to the American Psychological Association, work adds more stress to the holidays than home life. This could be in part because, during the holidays, people feel pressure to participate in holiday celebrations at work.Read more...
