Reston, VA is the #1 Place to Work from Home
February 12, 2021 by Alexis Babiarz
Working from home has its upsides, but the quality and quantity of those upsides depend a lot on where home is. Recently Money magazine named Reston, Virginia (where Metro Offices has one of its nine locations) the top U.S. city for remote workers to call home.
It’s not hard to see why. Reston, a planned community founded in 1964, was built with livability in mind. Walking trails, golf courses, and human-made lakes abound, and in addition to the well-known town center, there are five ‘village centers’ boasting excellent restaurants and shops.
But even if you’re among the 60,000-plus people lucky enough to live in Reston and you’re working from the comfort of your own home office (or, let’s be honest, kitchen table), you may be starting to get that 11-month pandemic itch. Perhaps you miss some of the amenities that went along with your former office space. Well, you need not go without any longer. Let Metro Offices’ virtual-office services fill the void.
Here, we detail the top three ways our virtual-office offerings can make Reston an even better place to work.
If you’ve been at home or close to it since March 2020, you probably passed stir-crazy somewhere along your way into August. The COVID-19 vaccine may not yet have been administered to the majority of the U.S. population. Still, with the proper precautions, you can feel totally safe coming into any Metro Offices location, including our Reston spot, just minutes away from Reston Town Center.
We’re cleaning and disinfecting regularly and frequently; we’ve erected plastic shields at reception areas; we’ve reduced seating capacity in our common areas; we’ve added hand-sanitizer stations; and of course, we require masks on both noses and mouths at all times. So mix up your workweek — put on real pants and spend a few days at a Metro Offices spot convenient to you. You’ll find yourself breathing a sigh of relief (despite the mask.)
Keep appearances professional
Small entrepreneurs and solopreneurs using their homes as their business bases encounter a few problems when it comes to looking polished. One, having a home address on business cards doesn’t exactly smack of business respectability. Two (and this is particularly so if you’re on your own), you can’t possibly answer every call your business might receive. Three, you have enough on your plate making your organization a success without having to sort through both your personal and business mail six days a week.
Why not outsource all of the above? Metro Offices gives you a choice of chic business-district addresses for your business cards; we offer live, personalized phone answering during business hours; and we give you the option of a range of mail- and package-handling services.
Pump up the productivity
In the past, you may have shied away from coworking or the workspace options offered by virtual-office providers because you’ve heard that such places will be too distracting. In fact, the opposite is true. At one of our hot desks or lockable private offices, you’ll very likely find yourself working harder and smarter — and thus, you’ll be more productive than you are at home.
