DVO_week25_2Now more than ever, businesses of all sizes have been adopting virtual offices. There are many reasons for this, from convenience to general cost consciousness and higher productivity, as well as the ability to expand inexpensively. This is why the idea of working remotely has become much more common.

What used to be an unusual business philosophy is being implemented by savvy companies in surprising industries. For instance, many firms have found that outsourcing tech, accounting, and customer service jobs has helped to increase their bottom line so they can actually stay afloat and often even thrive.

In the past, naysayers insisted that working from home was going to be a flash in the pan and that it would be impossible to accomplish as much outside of a traditional office environment. However, nothing could be further from the truth. The reality is that because there is less office distraction, employees are actually able to be more productive.

In order to avoid chaos, executives and staff have adopted a wide array of technologies that make work easier, as well as provide a way to monitor productivity. Virtual office solutions also offer a wealth of opportunity to keep literally thousands of employees in that all important business loop.

Freeing up a work space to the virtual world also opens up the ability to recruit the best of the best. No longer do companies have to pay enormous sums of money to not only recruit, but then house displaced families. Because they can work where they happen to live, they are also much less stressed about relocating and adapting to new environments. In many ways, virtual offices offer the most seamless possible way to incorporate new staff. Also, candidates are not just limited to those who are able and willing to move to specific cities, states, and other locations.

Ultimately, a company is only as good as its staff. Therefore, the ability to access and appeal to the crème de la crème alone will make it easier for companies of all sizes, types, and industries to rise to the top much faster than traditional firms.
