Federal Computer Week recently published a fascinating article entitled “Telework: The Future is on Hold,” discussing how lack of current technology is hurting the federal government’s ability to increase flexibility and productivity and cut costs through telework.
OPM cut $200,000 a year from their budget when they were able to close their office and transition all employees to teleworking. It is only a matter of time until more government contractors and businesses of all kinds begin to realize the incredible cost-savings available through switching to telework.
With the right business solutions in place and access to Washington DC meeting rooms when necessary, all business tasks can be accomplished effectively outside of the office with no need for real estate costs, leasing fees nor the expense of office maintenance and administration.
Metro Offices provides practical solutions enabling businesses to fully-support a ten-person workforce for only $1,000 a month. DC Metro Area employees can work from anywhere they have Internet capability, accessing all essential information through use of a VoIP platform. Metro’s telework packages also include access to DC Metro area meeting rooms, Virtual Clubs, Lounges, FlexDesks and guest offices at any Metro Office location.
Rather than just depending on telework for bad weather or other times when it is difficult to get to the office, smart business owners are beginning to realize telework provides a consistent solution that can benefit employees, customers, and the business as a whole on a daily basis.
If the job can be done just as well or even better outside of the office, why take such a large chunk out of the bottom line for a permanent office space and the associated costs? Businesses and government contractors already utilizing telework are reporting more loyal workers and increased job performance.
Telework makes it easier and more affordable than ever to run a business in Washington DC, Northern Virginia and Maryland. For more information on Telework, Executive Office Spaces, FlexDesk and other cost-effective business solutions visit Metro Offices online at www.metroffice.com.
