Leverage Shared Office Space to Improve Your Work/Life Balance
April 10, 2019 by Mike Certoma
If you’re like most of today’s workforce, you probably work from home — or remotely — at least one day a week. If trends continue the way they have been, that number will only increase in the coming years. So why not get ahead of the curve (or at least in it) in and around the nation’s capital by taking advantage of all that shared, virtual, and temporary office space has to offer in Washington DC? Having flexible workspace solutions will set your mind at ease and improve that previously precarious work-life balance. Below, we give the top six ways Metro Offices can help.
From our friendly, trained receptionists, to our professionally trained virtual office staff ensuring that your business line never goes to voicemail during business hours, to our award-winning IT team available to provide you with on-call computer and network support, Metro Offices is truly a turnkey solution to office space. Forget about having to first find a prime spot, then give over your pound of flesh for a lengthy, expensive lease and then, finally, hire and train staff. We do it all — and for a fraction of the cost.
Deducting the time of a lengthy commute from your daily schedule doesn’t do you any favors if you simply replace it with doing the laundry, emptying the dishwasher, or watching TV. Make sure working remotely works for you by trading in your desk at home for a desk or office at one of Metro Offices’ nine locations. When done right, working remotely can significantly boost productivity.
Whether you’ve just gone out on your own, are freelancing full-time, or don’t have the budget from your employer for a traditional, out-of-home office, affordability is a deciding factor in the choosing of workspaces. Metro Offices offers flexible memberships that start at just a few hundred dollars a month. So save your sanity — and some money — by choosing our solutions instead of a costly, commitment-heavy office lease.
‘Location, location, location’ didn’t become a saying in real estate for nothing. If you want a good location, Metro Offices has got it. With DC spots ranging from the famed Dupont Circle to two of the hearts of the business district, Farragut West and Metro Center, we’re often situated mere minutes, on foot, from DC’s Metro. Traveling by air, or have a client who is? Our Herndon, Virginia, offices are less than 10 minutes’ drive from Dulles International Airport, one of the busiest airports in the country. No car is needed to get to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, which has its own Metro stop.
Many types of workspace
With a traditional office space (or your home), you’re pretty much stuck with the usual seated-desk situation. Not so of Metro Offices’ locations. Take your pick of huddle room with inviting, non-traditional seating (did someone say chaise lounge?), bar tops with always-fresh coffee, tea and filtered water within easy reach, standing-desk spots and more. However you are most productive, our spaces are bound to have something to suit you.
It might be fun to work from home in your pajamas once or twice, but besides the ennui that can settle in, let’s face it, you’re not exactly meeting new people typing on your couch. At Metro Offices, a casual conversation in the kitchen, hallway, or one of our building’s fully equipped fitness centers with a fellow ‘flex’ worker could lead to untold business opportunities. After all, this is DC — you never know who you’ll end up running into.
