Washington Virtual Office: A Way to Support Telework Programs, Promote Professional Image
Whether a company is a home-based business, start-up business or organization of any size, having access to a Washington virtual office can help the company to increase flexibility and promote a professional image. On-demand access to DC meeting rooms and executive offices also provides necessary support to businesses and agencies moving forward with telework initiatives, offering a professional virtual office environment to make working remotely a successful experience.
Working outside of a traditional office is becoming more common as increasing numbers of businesses are trying to cut office space and related costs. Businesses can utilize a Washington virtual office only when they need it. There is no lease required. They simply reserve an office through an online reservation system, and the fully-equipped office space is ready for meetings, trainings or special projects.
Many employees prefer working in the on-demand DC office space rather than in their own home offices. The numerous perks and benefits of a Washington virtual office make it appealing to DC government contractors and workers in a variety of industries. These popular features include:
- Mail Service
- Prestigious business address for business cards, mail and website
- Virtual receptionist to professionally handle meetings and inquiries.
- Trained phone answering service
- Access to DC Meeting Rooms for important client meetings and trainings.
- Virtual Club with Wireless Internet, phones and a comfortable, professional business environment
- Use of a guest office that is an Internet-ready, furnished, private office with access to all business support services; available by the hour, day, or week
- Access to professional business support services to outsource daily tasks
When a Washington Virtual Office is Necessary
Perhaps the kids are home for summer vacation or a holiday break, and your home office just isn’t providing the professional environment necessary to accomplish important tasks. Or perhaps you desire an office location closer to your home, so you don’t have to fight the daily commute across the Metro. If you own a home-based business, you may want a Washington virtual office to give your business a prestigious business address and a professional location to meet clients.
A Washington virtual office meets a variety of business needs for managers, business owners, federal agencies and DC government contractors. If the goal is to become “office-less” or significantly reduce permanent office space, DC virtual offices can fill in the gaps. This style of on-demand office space is changing the way people do business and enhancing telework efforts.
An employee can choose to work remotely from home or the coffee shop one day, and reserve a Washington virtual office the next. The flexibility improves work flow and ensures workers have the tools and space when they need it most.
Make More Jobs Telework-friendly with Washington Virtual Office
Some managers and federal agencies are concerned that not all positions are telework-friendly, because they require face-to-face time with clients or use of certain technology. Utilizing a Washington Virtual Office enables teleworkers to meet with clients, managers and team-members in a fully-equipped office or meeting room in a convenient location. With more than 34 locations throughout the DC Metro Area, it is easy to find a virtual office in a central location.
