Telecommuters More Satisfied than Office Workers

Virtual Offices Make National Work From Home Day A Reality

Wouldn’t you like to work from home? More than 50,000 Canadians would.

Workers in Canada have pledged their support for a “National Work From Home Day.”
These Canadians actually pitched their idea to the House of Commons.

According to a recent poll for Workopolis, 39 percent of Canadians said the most important benefit associated with working from home would be a reduction in traffic congestion and pollution

"As a nation we need to rethink the world of work and the option to work from home should be part of that national discussion," says Mike Savage, Member of Parliament for Dartmouth-Cole Harbor. "It's good for the environment and work-life balance, and will improve our nation's productivity, which adds to greater business success.”

Numbers Don’t Lie
The Harris / Decima poll commissioned by Workopolis reveals that 51 percent of Canadians said they would be willing to use their own resources, such as their own personal computer, to work from home. Twenty-eight percent indicated they would work longer hours, and 19 percent even said they would take a pay cut to be able to work from home. Another 16 percent of workers would give up vacation days to take advantage of the added flexibility a work from home day would provide.

Telecommuting is a win-win for employees and employers. Greater work-life balance and lower stress are strong selling points for working from home. The home worker can transition from down time to work time in seconds and accommodate typical family responsibilities with little or no impact on the working day. Employers stand to gain from a lower employee turnover rate and greater productivity. And offering a work from home option is also seen as a perk by many employees and can help an organization attract and retain top talent.

Virtual Office Technologies Help
Davinci Virtual Office Solutions is glad to see initiatives like National Work From Home Day. This could give employers and employees a like an opportunity to test out alternative workplace strategies. Davinci offers the virtual office solutions and virtual office technologies that make alternative workplace strategies possible.

For example, Live Receptionist services mean your employees can work from anywhere and still have calls answered by a professional receptionist in the name of the company. The Live Receptionist can route the calls directly to the employee’s home office, cell phone, or wherever else they happen to be. Virtual office technologies like web conferencing make it possible to have productive team meetings even when several employees are working from their home offices.

We’ll have to wait and see if Canada approves a National Work From Home Day. But we believe it’s a groundbreaking idea that could open the eyes of many to the benefits of alternative workplace strategies enabled by virtual office solutions.

London Snow Storm Highlights Needs for Virtual Office Technologies

BBC News reports that almost 25 percent of schools across the United Kingdom have been shut down by heavy snow. In total, 7,000 schools have closed down—some for the third day in a row. What’s more, London’s Gatwick airport, the second busiest in the United Kingdom, has seen shut downs. Edinburgh and London City also shut down for a period.

Few were expecting it. In fact, this is the earliest such snowfall since 1993. Roads are frozen. Traffic is hectic. Buses were pulled from service. The tubes are crowded or stalled. And there’s no immediate end in sight. British Weather Services predict the icy weather will last at least through Dec. 8.

This is where virtual office technologies come in handy. Virtual office space and virtual office technologies help professionals continue working when they have to stay home with kids who attend schools that have been shut down, can’t drive on icy roads, and can’t fly out of local airports. Indeed, virtual office space can keep the economy moving despite the weather.

Davinci Virtual Office Solutions offers many virtual office locations across the United Kingdom and Europe. Specifically, Davinci offers virtual office solutions in Birmingham, Harrow, Heathrow, London, Manchester, Reading and Edinburgh. In fact, Davinci offers nine virtual office locations in London alone.

Let’s take a look at the Southampton Row London virtual office location. You can rent virtual office space at this location for as little as $115 a month. This is a prime business address in London where you can continue receiving your mail despite the weather. This virtual office location will forward your mail to you wherever you are in the world for a nominal fee. And when it’s not snowing, you can access business support services there. There’s also a lobby greeter and you can even rent a conference room on demand.
