The Rise of the Virtual Office

The idea that the office is a specific place where our professional lives take place is becoming less universal and less important. These days productive and progressive thinking can take place anywhere thanks to smarter mobile devices, faster network access, and a growing number of online tools.

Recent surveys have shown that over 60% of large companies are now letting their employees work from home. The reasons for this vary from cheaper overhead to more productive employees. Plus, the number of face-to-face meetings has significantly fallen over the years in favor of technology, conference calls, and convenience. These same technological advances have also made it possible for people to work remotely and at varying hours.

Technology has made it easier to stay connected with the office, managers and colleagues. Even people that work in the same office may still resort to phone conferencing as opposed to face-to-face meetings because it’s so convenient.

There are also a number of environmental benefits to working remotely also. Companies no longer need to print out documents and deliver them to desk inbox’s. Instead, there’s email, Dropbox and a variety of other options for sharing documents. Eliminating the need to drive to the workplace also eliminates unnecessary stress and gains back hours in the work day.

While working remotely full-time benefits employees and businesses, offices are still needed for certain tasks such as face-to-face meetings and presentations. A virtual office essentially bridges the gap between the full-time remote worker and one with a full service office space. Virtual offices are also customizable, allowing businesses to pay for only what they need.

A big benefit for smaller businesses is that a virtual office provides a physical location and prestigious business address for the company that can be used for meeting clients. Virtual office spaces also have meeting and conference rooms that can be rented on an hourly or weekly basis.

Traditional office spaces are probably not going away for good. Most larger organizations still see great benefits from these spaces and having people work in-house. However, non-traditional and virtual office spaces are likely to continue growing as more and more people strive for a better work-life balance, and businesses see the benefits of remote workers.
