The concept of the typical American office is changing, and rapidly so. While traditional office spaces are still very much necessary and relevant for a number of industries, telecommuting has revolutionized the ways in which Americans work. In many cases, another day at the office for telecommuters means waking up and “commuting” to their home computer, or taking their laptop or tablet to a coffee shop.
Nearly 80% of employees view the option to work remotely as a perk, and they’re not the only ones. Employers are also reaping the benefits of employing telecommuters. Nearly six out of 10 employers identify cost savings as a significant benefit to telecommuting. In addition, according to the American Management Association, companies that implemented a telework program experienced a whopping 63% reduction in unscheduled employee absences.
Although telecommuting and virtual companies are on the rise, there are times when having a physical, brick-and-mortar presence is still necessary. Many business owners might wish there was a way to have noted and respected local presence when necessary, while still being able to maintain their vast global reach as an online business. There is, thanks to a variety of virtual office solutions that can be customized in order to meet the needs of your virtual business, as well as your clients.
Virtual office space solutions allow you to choose from a variety of packages based on your needs and the needs of your clients. From fully furnished offices to custom or unique office solutions, virtual businesses can have the best of both worlds by choosing to rent virtual office space.
Every virtual business has different needs. Fully furnished offices, while convenient, may not be the solution for every virtual business. Some, such as a solo-preneur or smaller company, may only require a conference room for a client meeting. However, regardless of the kind of virtual office solution you choose, you can rest assured that your company will be represented in the way possible.
