Your Home Based Office Made More Professional

April 22nd, 2011

Having a home based office can be ideal and has some obvious advantages– you work from the comfort of your own home, you don’t have to deal with traffic which means you have more time to spend working, you don’t have to spend a fortune on gas, a home office makes it easier to create a work/life balance, you don’t have to rent out an office space and you don’t have to deal with the corporate world demands.

But there are also some disadvantages to working from home – no access to a professional meeting space, no IT team, no professional phone answering service (so you’re stuck answering all of your work related phone calls yourself) and no business mailing address. The lack of all these things can get in the way of running your home-based business efficiently.

Let Metro Offices help your home-based business operate more efficiently and appear bigger and larger to your clients by taking advantage of our home based service package.

Virtual Office Services
o Business Address
o Phone Answering Service
o Virtual Assistant
o Mail Service
* Remote Office Solutions
o Work from home, a client location, or anywhere using Metro Offices remote worker technology and services.
* Meeting Rooms

Keep the comforts and benefits of your home office without sacrificing the professionalism and efficiency of a larger, on-site business. Visit our website today and request your free quote!

Telecommuting and the Problems We Face

April 16th, 2011

It’s no secret that telecommuting is rapidly changing the business world as we know it. President Obama has even approved a bill giving government agencies 180 days to create telework programs for employees. Telecommuting is proven to save companies and the government billions of dollars a year which is why companies are quickly adopting telecommuting for their own employees. Metro Offices has been a leader in telework solutions for the Washington D.C. area for many years and can offer business owners some advice when it comes to communicating with telecommuting employees.

So what happens to office communications when your employees are all working from different locations? How do you keep communications clear and everyone on the same page? Sometimes phone calls, emails and instant messengers just aren’t enough. Well Metro Offices can help! We offer a program called Telework Plus which is essentially our telework services plus our virtual office services. It’s important that you gather your telecommuting employees together multiple times a year and our premier and accessible meeting locations around the D.C. area are perfect for team meetings.

You can also hold social, after work and holiday events for your entire staff. Many of these events can be held at Metro Office locations for your convince.

It’s important to keep trust alive and build relationships between co-workers and involving all of your employees in work procedures as well as casual events is the best way to do this. Without these things it can be easy for companies to sacrifice production and efficiency.

Contact us at Metro Offices and let us help you with your telecommuting solutions today!

March 31st, 2011

With the high costs of a DC office space, business owners are seeking new ways to find and secure an ideal space without breaking the budget. A traditional office space is no longer affordable for most businesses. But our new Workplaces on Demand offer an affordable yet professional option for business owners who require the space but refuse to pay outrageous prices.

The value proposition is simple. Workplaces On Demand provides the following benefits:
