Flexible Jobs—Like Virtual Offices—Drive Job Choices for Parents


Is A Virtual Office Even Possible at Your Workplace?


Survey: Nearly Half of Working Adults Would Appreciate a Virtual Office

ATLANTA—Flexible work options are a growing priority for working adults when choosing career. So much so that they are willing to sacrifice nearly double the salary percentage from a year-ago Mom Corps survey. A virtual office can drive new heights of flexibility for working moms and others seeking work-life balance.

According to the survey, nearly one in two working adults (45%) are willing to give up some percentage of their salary for more flexibility at work. Specifically, working adults are willing to give up about 10 percent, on average. That’s nearly double the amount of last year’s survey. The 18-34 age group, on average, would be willing to give up almost 14 percent of their salary for more flexible work options. But you don’t have to give up any of your salary to telecommute from a virtual office.

“We are beginning to see significant patterns in the value professionals of all ages place on workplace flexibility,” says Allison O’Kelly, founder and CEO of Mom Corps. “More and more, we feel challenged by the collective pressures of a demanding work life, a hectic personal life, and a desire to find fulfillment in both."

The results are especially significant considering the continued unemployment and uncertainty around the national election. But flexibility, such as telecommuting from a virtual office, continues to win out. Indeed, 61 percent strongly or somewhat agree that flexibility is one of the most important factors they consider when looking for a new job or deciding what company to work for, and 20 percent strongly agree.

Virtual offices can give you plenty of flexibility. Telecommuting from a virtual office allows you, in many cases, to workshift. Workshifting lets you to get your required work done during hours where it’s most convenient for you. If you have a doctor appointment in the middle of the afternoon, for example, workshifting gives you the flexibility to make up for lost time before or after.

Tomorrow we'll take a closer look at the flexible work study and how virtual offices are empowering work-life balance.

Virtual Offices Save Money, Give Employees More Freedom

ATLANTA—Sixty-seven percent of working adults agree that it is possible to “have it all” when it comes to work-life balance. Interestingly there is no significant difference in the study between women (68%) and men (66%). Could it be possible that these workers are using a virtual office?

A Moms Corp. survey has been digging into the issue of work-life balance. In another finding, 52 percent of working adults would be interested in starting their own business in order to achieve a better work-life balance, led by men age 35-44 (75 percent). And get this: 53 percent of working adults think they would get more work done if they had the ability to work from home occasionally. Nearly two in three (62 percent) 18- to 34-year-olds agree. That’s a vote of confidence for the virtual office.

According to the survey, the economic state is not a factor. Sixty percent of working adults agree that the state of the economy has no impact on their desire for increased flexibility at work. Of course, when you work from a virtual office you are actually saving money. You save on food. You save on gas. You save on wear and tear of your clothes.

“This year’s increased dialogue surrounding work-life alignment and flexibility issues has helped professionals realize that having even a little control over the way they work should not be an extraordinary request,” says Allison O’Kelly, founder and CEO of Mom Corps. “Companies are becoming more amenable to alternative work programs, and as professionals come to terms with the idea of flexibility, they are gaining confidence in seeking their preferred work environment and shaping their careers accordingly.”

Virtual office space is part and parcel of many alternative workplace strategies. Virtual offices give employees more control over the way they work and more freedom to get the job done in the midst of other life obligations, like childcare, medical appointments, or moving.

More companies are embracing virtual offices because they see the cost savings associated with allowing employee to telecommute from home. Less office space is required with the is alternative workplace strategy. Virtual offices go hand in hand with trends like Bring Your Own Device and mobile workers, giving employees more work-life balance and flexibility than perhaps ever thought possible.
