Working remotely is becoming the new norm in the business world. As the global economy expands, the workforce is taking advantage of technological innovations to provide employment solutions that work for employers, employees, and consumers. Working remotely, however, comes with challenges, especially when it comes to a professional appearance. At Alexa’s Workspaces, we’re experts in the world of virtual offices and remote employees. Here’s Alexa’s helpful guide to working anywhere: keeping a professional appearance when working remotely.
Look the Part
When it comes to working remotely, one of the biggest perks is the dress code (or lack thereof). While working from home is a great option, that doesn’t mean you should present yourself as a work-from-home professional to clients. If you are working remotely – perhaps through a virtual office – you likely will be fine dressing casual. But, if you need to meet with clients through online video chat services, make sure you have something fancier lying around. In fact, beyond merely having a blazer lying on the coffee table (just in case), dressing for success is the best way to put yourself into a winning mindset. After all, you need to dress for the job you want, right?
Get Into a “Working” Mindset
Just like the casual dress code, working from home often gives employees a casual mindset. This removes a sense of purpose and may make accomplishing tasks more difficult. Working remotely requires a separation from personal and professional lives. This includes creating a space specifically designed for working. By removing the clutter of your “after-work life“, you set yourself up for a more productive nine-to-five.
Have the Best Technology
Working remotely through a virtual office doesn’t mean you don’t offer the same services of brick-and-mortar locations. On the contrary, working remotely gives you the freedom to adapt your schedule to fit the needs of your clientele. But to not only compete with but also beat these larger brands, you need the best technology on your side. Fortunately, cloud-based technologies make the latest software not only easily accessible and affordable, but also readily available across all of your remote workforces.
Get a Virtual Office to Increase Your Visibility
Working remotely has its benefits, but that doesn’t mean your business shouldn’t have a centralized location. For many brands, however, affording an expensive headquarters is a pipe-dream. For these businesses, virtual offices are an excellent option.
Virtual offices provide many of the advantages of a brick-and-mortar location, but without the massive overhead or any of the hassle associated with traditional office buildings. Virtual offices provide a business address in a prestigious area at an exceptionally low cost, such as downtown Fort Lauderdale. Not only that, but virtual offices offer professional (and personalized) call answering and secretarial services, including domestic and international mail handling, courier services, translations, and even notary services.
