…eliminate the main overhead!
Why Apex Office Centers?
A new article by American Express shows companies how to save money by rethinking the way they do business!
If you are a small company then it’s a no-brainer…do you really need to spend money on your biggest expense, office rental?
– Use a virtual office instead like Apex Office Centers.
Take this quote from one happy business owner who followed this advice:
“In 2011, I took my Chicago-based communications firm virtual to save money by eliminating the rent I was paying in a downtown office building. What was supposed to be a one-year test to save some cash turned into a permanent situation as we discovered that productivity increased, turnover decreased and our employees were happier overall.”
1. No commute time.
Two or three hours every day that used to be spent getting ready for work and traveling to the office is now spent working. Because of that, productivity has increased and our employees are more focused. An Apex Office Center advantage.
2. Employees are easily more active.
A few years ago, researchers at University of Sydney’s School of Public Health in Australia released a study that found sitting at your desk for more than 11 hours a day increased your risk of death by more than 40 percent in the next three years regardless of other activity. Because of that, we instituted a competition that gets people up and moving. Every person on our team has a Jawbone UP band, and we track people’s movement through a contest. But you don’t have to have a contest to get your employees moving—they’ll naturally move around more if they’re not chained to a desk at an office every day. Another Apex office Center advantage.
3. Flexibility means using less vacation days.
Want to have “donuts with dad” in your child’s third grade class? It’s not a big deal because you can make up the time later. Prefer to work out at lunchtime? No problem—you have a shower in your office now. Let Apex answer your phone instead.
4. Less overhead.
There’s no office lease, no utility payments, no hardware and none of the associated costs that come with having a brick-and-mortar space. All that savings can not only be passed along to clients, but it also affects your profit margin, allowing you to invest more in your people. So Apex Office Centers saves you money.
5. Save money on technology.
While BYOT (bring your own technology) started in the school system, it’s quickly made its way into the business world. By working remotely, employees can have the technology they prefer, and they’re responsible for upgrading it when it’s convenient for them. While there are a few cyber risk concerns with not having company-provided technology, that’s fairly easy to manage with a password tool, monitoring and employee training.
6. Productivity increases.
Because you go from monitoring when people arrive to work and when they leave to establishing specific goals, you’ll see an increase in productivity almost immediately
“It makes a lot of sense to use a virtual office company like Apex Office centers.”
