Job flexibility and teleworking go hand in hand. Indeed, allowing employees to work outside the traditional confines of corporate office space is driving big benefits for companies of all sizes (read: attracting the best and brightest talent and cutting bottom line overhead, two name two of the many advantages.)
Cloud Virtual Office is helping drive alternative workplace strategies to the fore within the small business and start-up community that’s looking to boost professionalism while slashing costs, spur the distributed workforce trend, increase flexibility, outsource non-core activities, encourage telecommuting and, of course, foster a green workforce.
Cloud Virtual Offices has authored a free report dubbed “The Virtual Business Model: Technology & The Cloud Business Age” that offers companies of all sizes information they need to tap into the benefits of the workforce of the future—and the alternative workplaces of today. The report outlines the many advantages of teleworking from a virtual office.
Here’s one scenario to consider: In some areas of the United States, geography and climate may prevent workers from getting to the office. Think blizzards and hurricanes, to be more specific. When you adopt teleworking, you are keeping workers safe by allowing them to work from home using virtual office technologies. You are also showing consideration for the general population by not forcing employees to weather poor conditions, which could lead to greater public safety hazards. Finally, you are saving many non-productive hours that would be spent trying to navigate blocked roadways in bad weather.
Cloud Virtual is one of many virtual office companies that can come to the rescue in those situations. But virtual offices aren’t just for natural disasters. Companies like Cloud Virtual offer clients conference rooms, telephone communications, client reception, mail service and advanced messaging, and live telephone operators all for a small fee in good times and bad. And the benefits are measurable as study after study prove the cost savings and productivity hikes associated with teleworking.
