“Technology now allows people to connect anytime, anywhere, to anyone in the world, from almost any device. This is dramatically changing the way people work, facilitating 24/7 collaboration with colleagues who are dispersed across time zones, countries, and continents.” – Michael Dell, CEO of Dell Corporation, explaining why a virtual office is the future of work.
Being able to hire talent and connect globally has forever changed the way we work in and think about office space. This rapid progression has forced countless organizations to reevaluate their office structure, leading many to make the shift to mobile and virtual office options. This move has many advantages for the local entrepreneur- as well as for larger, more established firms. Regardless of where you’re at in your business life cycle, here are a few reasons why a virtual office with Boston Offices is worth consideration.
More productive employees
Productivity is the name of the game in any business. Setting up a virtual office is a great way to help you get there. You and your team can work from anywhere during the hours that suit you best. While still enjoying the benefits of an office when one is needed. Employees are being evaluated on productivity rather than hours logged. Therefore, you can set and achieve higher production goals. Whether you’re a night owl or an early riser, you choose how and when you work most efficiently.
Have you ever done the math on how long you spend commuting in and out of work everyday? Well, we did and the results are shocking. A thirty minute commute to work everyday (which is just shy of the average in Boston) is 260 hours a year and 421 days over your working lifetime. Imagine what you could do with that time. Utilizing a virtual office means you can work when and where you want. Be it, the comfort of your own home or in a fully equipped private office or meeting room.

We get it- ROI is everything. And traditional office space comes with a lot of baggage – rent, utilities, IT infrastructure, furniture, etc. A virtual office allows you to access all of the benefits of a traditional office space only when you need them – without the overhead. You can enjoy hourly, daily or monthly access to fully-furnished and wired private offices and conference rooms equipped with all the tech tools you need. Whether you’re local to Boston and in the office regularly, or part of an overseas company and only in town once a quarter. We’ll have the office ready for you when you’re here.
The way we think about ‘work’ is changing. We are becoming more agile and flexible – and we need our work spaces to reflect that. With month to month terms and the ability to create a custom shared office plan designed to fit your team, a virtual office does just that.
