Have you ever been in a position of looking for new office space, perhaps your team is growing or you need to move due to a change in customer demand? It can be an absolute nightmare, with so much to think about and with efficiencies becoming a thing of necessity, you might be looking at how to move and save money at the same time. Now there’s a thought not to be shrugged at, something that was perhaps a dream is in actual fact a reality by way of a, ‘virtual office space’.
What’s it all about?
As the name suggests, a virtual office is an office space that you can call your own, have most of the benefits of having your own office space but without actually having to be there. There are some really great advantages of having a virtual office space, mainly that you can continue operating, keep your credibility as a Bonafede trader yet have the flexibility of working anywhere you wish. The office can also be anywhere you want it to be, if you want an office in Sydney, all you have to do is search for virtual offices in Sydney and hey presto you have choices to choose from. If you want a virtual office in Hong Kong, the same principle applies.
What about my staff?
Whilst it could be a big change for them, they should settle in and get used to the idea pretty quickly, especially when they start to reap the benefits of not having to commute, which could mean more time in bed or more time dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s on that report that was due yesterday. They won’t need to take as much vacation time for trips here and there as working from home would give them the flexibility that most people crave for.
If there ever was a need to meet a client at the office space then there is absolutely no problem. You are paying for the space and as such you can have a meeting there anytime you want within your agreement.
It won’t suit everybody, but with times of change come times of change, this is all about business and what is right for your business in terms of either survival or growth.
If you have staff then they would be your biggest concern, hopefully everybody will be on board and it can be a smooth transition. Other than that, the cost savings and other areas that could save time and money should be a bonus for everyone.
