December 21, 2021 | Business

As we reintegrate back into society, coming back from holidays, returning to work, and interacting in person with others, we’re faced with an “awkward” phase. As workers, you’ve forgotten how to interact with teammates, colleagues, and coworkers without a screen.

Business Roadmap

November 17, 2021 | Business

Successful businesses don’t just come out of nowhere. The businesses that succeed are the ones that have a clear strategy for growth and a roadmap for getting from startup to IPO. But by roadmap, we don’t mean a traditional plan or strategy document. We mean a concise visual representation of where you’re going and how you plan to get there.

Why this approach? Because the ever-shifting, increasingly uncertain market we’re trying to do business in means that plans and strategies must change accordingly. And roadmaps offer insights and flexibility that traditional plans don’t.

November 4, 2021 | Dedicated Desks, Private Offices

In 2019, 17% of employees worked consistently from home – in 2020, it increased to 44%. Remote work is becoming a standard in small businesses, especially those where employees live long-distance. But even with the freedom of working remotely, employees face significant problems – specifically a lack of professional space.

Your home most likely didn’t come with built-in office space, and, pre-pandemic, not many homes did.  In general, working from home consists of finding somewhere – anywhere – you can set up as your workspace. For some, that looks like a desk in a quiet corner. For others, it’s like taking turns working on the couch vs. working on the bed.

Office Solutions for Small and Mid-sized Companies

Office Solutions

September 9, 2021 | Coworking, Private Offices, Shared Office Space

Small and mid-sized companies face unique opportunities – and unique challenges. Smaller companies are nimbler, with the ability to pivot towards growth and adapt to shifts in the market. But when it comes to managing real estate and office spaces, they’re at a disadvantage. Smaller companies leasing a traditional office space can see their profits being eaten up by overheads. They also have less leverage when it comes to securing a long-term lease or loan. All of this can have an impact on bottom lines – and future growth. 

But the agile, adaptive working environments offered at a coworking space such as District Offices in downtown D.C. can turn a challenge into an opportunity – reducing financial risk while maximizing flexibility.
