Retain Top Talent: How to Keep Your Remote Workforce Happy

Meeting Room

More and more, remote workforces are gaining in popularity. The benefits of remote working are numerous and clear, but getting your business to a place of maximum remote efficiency can take a bit of time, research, and work. There are many ways to ensure that both you and your workforce are feeling positive about the work they are doing.

  1. Set Communications Objectives

When collaborating with a remote workforce, you lose the aspect of daily face-to-face interactions. This can make communicating clearly more difficult, as an email often cannot convey tone and can lose timeliness. However, if clear communication objectives are set from day one, your virtual office staff will all be on the same page.

These communication objectives can include scheduling one-on-one phone calls with each employee. By having individual virtual meetings with employees, they feel as though their voice is being heard. This specialized, scheduled attention to each team member can keep fears of lacking productivity away, as well as giving each employee a time to share any concerns they may have directly with you.

Another way to keep the communication waves open between you and your employees is setting up office hours of sorts, or a designated time period each day or week that you will be completely available to speak with them about whatever needs they have. Again, this keeps communication open and avoids any future kinks in your business.

  1. Utilize Technology

By keeping your remote workforce organized, you will keep them happy and productive. A sure-fire way to keep your entire business organized is to fully utilize technology. There are numerous business-centric technology developments available to keep your workforce in touch and productive. Communication technology such as Go To Meeting, FaceTime, Google Hangout, and Skype make it possible to meet with your workforce, and clients, “face-to-face”. Using these programs will make it easier for everyone to attend meetings without an office space and can be scheduled in advance to ensure availability. Additionally, providing each employee with a laptop, cell phone, and software ensures that there will be no technological issues on either end and that your company can work from anywhere.

  1. Set Clear Expectations

Start off every employee relationship with clear expectations. Defining your expectations of availability and productivity from the beginning will save you and your workforce from headaches down the road.

Since productivity from a remote workforce is measured differently than in a traditional office space, it is imperative to define what your expectations are. Setting project completion goals and deadlines may be a more effective measurement of productivity than simply clocking in 40 hours a week. By clearly defining what you expect from your employees will keep them on track and their stress levels low.

Additionally, clearly define what you expect from their availability. Decide on a timeline of availability (cell and email availability from 9-5, a daily check-in email, etc.) and implement it across the board. Having these details laid out in advance will avoid confusion and allow your employees to work in the most effective way for their life.

  1. Trust

Finally, the most important aspect of keeping your remote workforce happy is trust. You must trust that the people that you hired to be a part of your business are working just as hard as you are. Even if you do no see them face-to-face on a regular basis, you must trust, and ensure, that they are completing their work quickly and well. When your employees do not feel micromanaged, they have the flexibility to work to their fullest potential, and still know that you are there for any assistance they may need to complete their job successfully.

Here at Endeavor Innovative Workspaces, we can provide your business with the resources needed to keep your remote workforce happy. From flexible office spaces to accommodate any group meeting to providing conference call technology, Endeavor is here to help your business thrive. All of these elements combined, along with experience and time, will ensure that your remote workforce is happily working from the their desired workspace, at Endeavor.

 

Start-ups Leading the Coworking Space Revolution

Coworking Fort Myers

Coworking spaces are popping up in every major metropolitan area, and it is no wonder why. They are a breeding ground for innovation and collaboration – a melting pot of sorts – that allows creatives, entrepreneurs and everyone in between to share their ideas and services. In short, coworking is changing the face of business.

 

Are you familiar with that old adage, “History always repeats itself”? Well, in the case of coworking spaces, it is true. Think back to the 16th century, when wealthy aristocrats would gather the brightest artistic and scientific minds in one room, and call it a salon. The salon was an Italian invention of the 16th century, which flourished in France throughout the 17th and 18th centuries.

 

Is this starting to sound familiar yet? A coworking space is the 21st century’s version of a salon. Apart from the stellar add-ons these spaces offer now, like game rooms, fully functioning kitchens, conference rooms and more, co-working spaces speak to the social butterflies in all of us. There is a certain alchemical reaction that takes place when you throw different people from all walks of life and careers into the same room. These meetings lead to to brilliant ideas, fruitful brainstorming sessions, and ultimately the evolution of businesses.

 

Let’s not forget the other motivator that drives all business-minded people – money.

 

According to Mark Corbett, co-founder of Pace Ventures, “The problem of increasing rental prices does not appear to be going away any time soon. The result is that enterprising individuals will continue to search for more effective, cost-saving, and creative ways to work and live.”

 

A coworking space is the answer to the question that plagues every entrepreneur’s mind: How can I reduce my overhead?

 

The beauty of a shared working space is that there is little to no commitment on the part of the member. If you want to pay for a day, then that is what you do. If you want to pay a monthly fee, you also have that option. What you don’t need to do is sign a lease that puts you and your budget between a rock and a hard place for a year or more.

 

Here at Endeavor, our daily pricing starts at just $29. We also offer private offices for just $34 per hour or $97 for the entire day. We also have differing levels of monthly pricing, which include options like a Premium Dedicate Desk for $379 per month, and a Cube Office for $439. For a full list of pricing and what each membership offers, visit our pricing page here.

 

It is the belief of some industry experts that established corporations will move their operations to co-working spaces for the culture and the cost. While this sentiment’s validity is yet to be determined, the following holds true. Start-ups will continue to make a co-working space their hub of operation. The benefits are many while the negatives are nearly non-existent. To recap, a start up can dramatically decrease their overhead and save on rent, office equipment like printers, call answering and routing, Wi-Fi and more.

 

Have we convinced you yet? If you want to be a part of the business revolution, give us a call.

Best Places to Get Work Done for Every Budget

Office Meeting

Working from home sounds peaceful and even ideal, but how much does working from home cost business-savvy professionals? For starters, the average at-home entrepreneur may find themself consuming more convenience food, such as take-out, delivery, pre-packaged and frozen food options; overall, making purchases from the most convenient places, rather than the cheapest. While these costs may seem small and inconsequential, they can take a toll on the wallet. Then there is the possibility of being distracted by external stimuli like children and pets, which may cause the quality of your work to suffer.

Endeavor is a solution for such entrepreneurs. The 15,000 square-foot space includes high-speed fiber optic Internet, 26 private office spaces (single, double and adjoining), two large conference rooms, a lobby with reception and guest check-in, a kitchen, lounge and game room. The lobby with reception and guest check-in makes a valuable first impression, a moment that can make or break your first business meeting. So why not set yourself up for success? Better yet, follow-up your greeting with a spacious, roomy office of your own to seal the deal.  Having Endeavor’s many resources at your fingertips can also provide you the opportunity to grow your business and lead to valuable networking connections.

Endeavor Innovative Workspaces – The solution to all your business needs.

The price of Endeavor is small in comparison to the cost of lost time and expenses for essential activities and resources, like meetings, printers, computers, and an office lease. Pricing breaks down to $29 a day, while private offices cost $34 per hour, or $97 a day. Conference rooms are available for $37 per hour. For those who prefer to pay monthly or yearly instead of daily, memberships are available and start at $34 per month. Private offices are available as well, and include four hours of conference room time, call answering and routing, and 24/7 access; the private offices cost $579 per month.

Membership breaks down as follows:

Associate members pay $34 a month, including a one-day pass, which can be used once a month.

Corporate members pay $249 per month for four hours of conference room time, based on availability. Call answering and routing is available for those who have private offices on a more permanent basis.

Endeavor is open an additional hour in both the morning and evening, allowing those business professionals to come in early and leave later, or vice versa.

Endeavor Innovative Workspaces are ideal for those solo-entrepreneurs who prefer a separation between home and work, or who find that the local coffee shop is not conducive to their meeting. The truth is, public spaces like these cannot provide the essential resources and lasting impression that Endeavor’s offices can. Let Endeavor work for you. We want to make your business interactions as easy and effortless as possible. You worry about your big pitch, and let us take care of the rest.
