Why Your Business Needs a Virtual Office Space
Guest Author: Sheila Prowls
Miami is not just a city where people come to retire. Instead, they come here to recharge, reorganize, and sometimes reduce the cost of their company’s overhead costs. The Magic City has nearly twice the number of entrepreneurs and startups than the national average. The reason? Evolving technology. Businesses, both public and private, are using more remote workers than ever, a trend that’s only going to get bigger. Entrepreneurs no longer have to worry about investing a fortune in office space when they can opt for a Virtual Office Space. Managers and employees can now work from anywhere in the world while still having a physical address, a receptionist and an actual meeting space. Your virtual office space provider supplies those needs. There are numerous other benefits of having virtual office space.
More Employees/Less Overhead with a Virtual Office Space
People are packing up and moving to Florida by the thousands for the weather, the beaches, the nightlife and more. Miami and many of its suburbs are growing by leaps and bounds. That means more people looking for jobs. Many companies are able to hire more people when they have the freedom of working remotely. It’s estimated that businesses spend $400 to $1200 per employee each month for office space.
With a virtual office space, there’s no need for desks or cubicles. There are no rent or utility bills to pay. No need to buy furniture or insurance. Not to mention you won’t worry about break-ins or disasters that may threaten the building. Cutting costs while keeping a professional business look is attractive to managers. With Starthub, you can have a physical location in the heart of downtown Miami. Check out more ways a Virtual Office Space can reduce costs for your business.
Commuting is no fun. Some people are in their cars for hours a day, just getting to and from work. Longer commutes are connected to lower rates of job satisfaction and well-being. Unfortunately, Miami has one of the longest commute times in the country. Commuting is stressful and costly (gas money and wear and tear on your car). A Virtual office space can put an end to that. Employees can work from home, or anywhere, saving time and money.
Telecommuters are actually more productive than those who go into the office. A study by Stanford professor Nicholas Bloom found that those working from home (or elsewhere) get more done than those in the office because of fewer distractions and a higher comfort level. There’s often more flexibility and a better work/personal life balance, as well as a better geographical location. Attrition rates also dropped for the telecommuters by 50% and they took fewer sick days. Employees interact with their team and their clients by email, phone and videoconferencing. A virtual office also allows for meetings in person at the physical address.
