Calling All Road Warriors

AKA Office Teleworkers

A teleworker does not sound quite as glamorous though, but this is the name given to the tribes who travel for a living but need an office when they lay their hat. Apex Office Centers in Roseville is one such place and it’s part of a revolution mentioned in “ The Future of Shared Office Space” by  Audra Capas, president of 5StarPR LLC .

“Coworking centers and executive suites continue to evolve and morph into new types of workplaces that create experience and community for users.

 COWORKING CENTERS and executive suites facilities that offer shared workspace have become one of the hottest trends among tech startups, freelancers and creative types seeking community and collaboration with like-minded entrepreneurs — or simply turnkey workplaces that don’t require a multiyear commitment. These shared office spaces operate as temporary work hubs that anyone can rent by the hour, day or month. Yet each is as diverse as the people who frequent it.

 Executive suites are fully furnished offices and other types of workspaces that are typically leased on a pay-as-you-go basis. They enable individuals or companies to occupy office space without signing a long-term lease, paying a security deposit, leasing equipment or contracting for telephone, Internet and other services. “

It used to called office rental but that too fell out of favor. Office rental is what we do though, but it has all the bells and whistles that matter now too. That’s what appeals to the new army of road warriors, and its not just the company teleworkers but also the rising Independent Workers.

“The growth of independent workers is also outpacing hiring within the overall U.S. labor force. Full-time independent contractors and freelancers accounted for a 12 percent increase in the nation’s workforce over the past five years, compared to a 7 percent increase in overall U.S. employment. MBO’s study also projects that 40 million Americans will choose to be self-employed by 2019.

Behind this explosive growth are new technologies that enable today’s highly mobile workforce to conduct business remotely and the freedom to collaborate anywhere, any time using tools such as Yammer, Jive and Huddle. Corporate downsizing, employee dissatisfaction with traditional jobs, long commutes and new online marketplaces that make matching companies with freelance talent easier and more cost-effective are also fueling workers’ drive for independence.

CoreNet Global, which tracks the amount of space companies allocate to workers, says dedicated office spaces continue to shrink as more collaborative office layouts and open spaces take hold. Today, the average is about 176 square feet per worker, down from roughly 225 square feet in 2010.”
