The ever evolving business landscape is already showing signs of growth and change since the beginning of 2013. Among those changes are two we find particularly interesting here at Business Workspaces. As leading providers of Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) and virtual office solutions, we proudly serve a growing community of professionals; many of whom are part of the expanding mobile workforce. Of the trends we’ve seen in 2013, none excite us more than continued growth in the mobile workforce and a rising demand for virtual offices.
Increasing Professional Mobility
In recent years we’ve seen a shift of epic proportions in the modern workforce. Gone are the days that a professional must log 40+ hours a week, behind the same desk, to prove his or her productivity. Instant messaging, email and cloud computing are enabling professionals to remain productive; regardless of location or time of day. This shift in thinking has also opened windows of opportunity for the freelance workforce. The ability to communicate and collaborate instantaneously, via the web, has inspired many organizations to hire freelance professionals.At Business Workspaces we proudly serve many talented mobile and freelance workers and could not be more pleased to see such incredible growth in the space.
Growth in the Virtual Office Sector
The remarkable growth we’ve seen in the virtual office sector is a direct correlation to the mobile workforce phenomenon. As these professionals advance and grow in their respective areas of expertise, they are finding the need for an office address to call their own. Virtual offices allow freelancers and businesses alike to maintain addresses in highly desirable office building, at a fraction of the cost. In many cases, virtual office assistants are even on hand to field phone calls and take messages. Put simply, virtual offices deliver all of the benefits of a traditional office space with none of the confines.
At Business Workspaces we are excited to see what the future holds for this innovative group of professionals. The sky is truly the limit and we’ll be here every step of the way to provide the support our clients need. Interested in learning more about our on-demand and virtual offices? Contact us today!
