TORONTO—While many employees are seeking flexible work arrangements—such as telecommuting from a virtual office space—not all of their bosses believe they work as efficiently when they are working outside the office. So says a Microsoft Canada survey.
Microsoft Canada announced the results of its Flexible Workspaces survey, a study that reveals the workstyle preferences of employees and bosses with regards to working remotely and how they ranked their productivity while working remotely.
Only 25 percent of Canadian bosses polled feel employees are more productive when working remotely, such as from a virtual office, compared to when in the corporate office. However, the findings from employees countered the bosses' perceptions, with 55 percent reporting that they believed they were more productive when working from virtual office set ups.
"What we once considered the traditional office is changing,” says James Nicholson, Deployment Specialist for Windows with Microsoft Canada.
“More and more customers, colleagues and technology partners are finding themselves taking business calls from airport waiting lounges, reviewing work documents as they wait at the dentist office or sit on the train, or running important personal errands during their work day. And at the center of their workstyles, people expect increased technological capabilities to keep up with them—everything from real time collaboration with colleagues to video conferencing and secure access to their files."
The traditional office is changing, more and more giving way to executive office suites and virtual offices that cater to mobile workers. Davinci Virtual Office Solutions is helping companies of all sizes, as well as mobile entrepreneurs, tap into productivity-enhancing technologies like virtual offices, virtual assistants, virtual receptionists and more.
