In today’s rapidly evolving business landscape, there is a huge shift towards remote work. With the challenges posed by social restrictions and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, traditional office setups have met significant limitations. To move along with this new reality, many organizations are turning to virtual offices as a strategic solution to sustain their operations and ensure continuity in an ever-changing economy.

As a small business owner, every task falls on your shoulders! Hiring a receptionist to answer calls and do admin jobs may not be affordable.

The past year has given leaders a crash course in handling remote teams. Everyone rose admirably to the challenge, pivoting to digital workspaces, virtual meetings, and cloud-based task management. But the gradual return to in-person working presents a new leadership challenge: managing hybrid teams.
We know by now that remote workers have fundamentally different work experiences from in-office workers. Managers need to work vigilantly to bridge the gap – and ensure that both camps have everything they need to work efficiently, effectively, and collaboratively. Here’s how:
With remote working now the norm, the onboarding process has never been more important. Rather than the on-the-fly approach that many organizations are used to, a more structured effort is now essential to make sure that new hires aren’t missing out on vital info or connections. Here’s how to deliver a world-class onboarding for your new recruits.
When the Coronavirus pandemic hit the U.S. earlier this year, many of us retreated into our homes to work remotely. While working from home has its perks, it’s not ideal for everyone — and it can be especially challenging for small businesses, entrepreneurs, and start-ups.
Luckily, there are some great options that can help to improve and augment the work-from-home experience. Let’s explore some remote work styles and how each one can benefit you and your business needs.
The past few months have seen businesses reconsider how and where they work. Staff members are working from home, logging on outside the traditional Monday-Friday 9-5, or even sitting out for weeks or months as companies adjust to a rapidly changing future. Unsurprisingly, for many small or mid-sized businesses, the enormous overheads associated with a full-floor or full-building office no longer make sense.
Whether you’re an independent contractor, startup, or SME your goals are the same: to maximize growth and profits. That means spending more time on high-value areas of work such as client acquisition, contract management and project delivery, and less on handling office admin. If flexibility, ROI, and simplicity matter to you, then a coworking space or virtual office service should be on your radar. Once you’re part of a coworking ecosystem, you’ll be able to reclaim plenty more time and resources for building your business.
Here are just some of the benefits of a coworking space.
While the spread of COVID19 has been slowed, remote work continues to be the norm, and it is not going away anytime soon. This means that virtual meetings and chat rooms are here to stay and if you’re in the job market or looking to hire then this means virtual interviews! Virtual interviews can be clunky and awkward without pre-planning, so we’ve gathered our top tips for both conducting and participating in them. Hopefully, these tips will take your virtual hiring and job search process to the next level.
Remote work has quite suddenly become the new normal. Luckily with technology, it’s not as hard to navigate as one might assume. With Slack, Zoom, and various remote tools, your company is at your fingertips, and work is getting done efficiently. However, there are still lots of challenges that can directly affect employees and how they feel about their jobs.
