Gone are the days when a small company with a few employees would have to be geographically connected in order to run a business. With today’s technology, co-workers can sign in to work everyday by phone or computer without having to leave the comfort of their own home. Creating a Los Angeles Virtual Office combines many off-site locations into one virtual meeting place reducing the costs associated with a traditional office space.
There are three main reasons why people choose to use a Los Angeles Virtual Office as opposed to a traditional office space. The first reason is that employers and business owners save money in overhead of an office space. Secondly, they are not restricted in recruiting employees in their general geographical area. Lastly, there is an increase in productivity and moral when employees are not restricted to where they can work.
Imagine the money savings for a new start-up business that does not have to invest in an office space. There are no utility bills to pay for, office decor to purchase or capital to raise to keep the office performing on a daily basis. In a virtual office you still have to pay for the use of new technology but that would be a requirement in any new physical office as well. Now, the employees have the technology in the palm of their hand or desktop as opposed to a cubicle.
Secondly, imagine the pool of qualified candidates you can hire from when you are not restricted to a specific location. With hiring firms based on the Internet, you can take your employee hiring all over the world to find the best applicant for the job. Also, there is savings in retention of employees if they have to relocate for personal reasons.
Lastly, just as children learn better in different environments, people may be more productive when outside of their typical cubicle environment. Working from the road, a coffee shop or in their pajamas from their home office may be the best way to work everyday. The employee focuses on where they can perform best instead of an employer spending money creating an office environment that is meant for everyone.
