A recent article, 6 Ways Millennials Have Impacted Corporate Office Space by Lanre Onibalusi says that Millennials are penetrating the corporate world vastly. These young, dynamic employees have   an entrepreneurial mindset, technological competence, and the utmost concern for the greater good.

To attract the best and brightest of this coveted demographic to your workplace, here are some tips to make your team office space Philadelphia as attractive to this younger generation as possible.

  1. Well designed workspace.

Carefully designing office space  that provides spaces for collaboration and spaces for focused individual work is a big plus to win millennial talents.

  1. Accessible office location.

If your business is located in a prime city, ensure you’re near to a public transportation because many rely on it for getting around.  Furthermore, some millennials just take a walk, ride in a bike, and they may even ride a skateboard to get to work , so a district that is  friendly to non-drivers, as well as places on site to lock up bikes and other non-motorized vehicles are a big factor to attract millennial employees.

  1. Eco-friendly workplace.

Plug and Play Offices in LEED certified buildings, furniture and fixtures that are made from environmentally conscious materials and an intensive drive to recycle and even compost can all go a long way in magnetizing millennial employees.

  1. Offer telecommuting.

More often, millennials would prefer to work from home. Consider a telecommuting policy, allow employees to work from home once or twice a week and set days where everyone is required to be in the office.

Conclusion

Employees are the backbone of your business, attracting and hiring the most talented and motivated millennial workers is a sure win.  Looking for better workspace solutions for your business in Philadelphia?  Thus, YourOffice Philadelphia is looking forward to help you win the interest of these millennial talents.

You may require some perks to improve your business. Below are some of the perks a coworking space may provide.

A recent article, 3 Things To Do When You Feel Like Quitting by Sasha Kill says that trying to run, manage and grow a successful business is overwhelming. The pressure and stress can either make or break you. But being your own boss and  generating more money while doing something that you love is awesome.

So when you feel like giving up, here are three things to keep you going in your business in a commercial office space.

  1. Realign with your purpose.

When you feel exhausted in your business, it’s because you’re sidetracked. Your purpose is the very essence and the reason why you do what you do. So keeping your purpose at the heart of your business will serve as a steadfast inspiration that will guide you through difficult times including the uncertainty, fear and dismay that can sneak in as you grow.

  1. Remember that it’s not easy, but Worth It

Many entrepreneurs in diverse places in executive suites fail to anticipate that there are unavoidable struggles that lie ahead. You have to continue with the journey and accept the challenges (setbacks and obstacles) ahead as part of the process. With this understanding the road ahead shape and develop you rather than tear you down.

  1. Let yourself throw in the towel for a day.  

Lastly, when things look too consuming, take a break.  Get out of your office in shared office space Lake Mary, take a walk, get some coffee, meet some friends, write a journal or find a quiet place or book a meeting room to reflect and meditate.   By taking a break, you only not allow your body and mind to refresh and restore, but you’re able to view your business from a new vantage point, often shedding light on priorities and goals.

A recent article, 6 Roles That Can’t Be Performed Remotely by Chad Reid agrees that today remote work is fast emerging, but that doesn’t mean it’s perfect for all roles. In fact, some jobs require in-person collaboration or due to equipment restrictions, are just better to maintain a physical space.

Below are four jobs that most likely are not ideal for remote work.

Design work is highly collaborative, and it involves more feedback than any other job within most companies. Having in-house designers in the same team office space makes the process faster and easier, and helps your team create better outcome.

  1. Operations team

Operations employees need to be diligent and keep abreast of the most recent changes and development of your company, so it’s crucial that they are in-house. They are the ones who lead strategic meetings, get to know employees, keep track of bills and maintenance, and frontlines of keeping customers and clients happy and satisfied.

  1. Videographers

Transporting heavy and expensive equipment for awesome video projects is daunting. Thus, having in-house videographer/s to work with other fellow workers in an agile office space enables your marketing team to create and produce great videos faster.

  1.  C-Suite

Having your C-suite work together with other employees in an executive office space will provide them more opportunities to collaborate with fellow executives within the organization, and it will promote more productivity, efficiency and clarity for the leaders reporting to them.

Conclusion

A recent article, 3 Questions Every Leader Should Ask To Succeed by Paul Keijzer says that leaders at any rank in an organization, whether at the very top or somewhere in the middle are always subjected to severe scrutiny. Thus, to stay on course and gratify the expectations that come with the job, leaders should appraise their performance and ability to lead.

Here are three questions leaders should ask themselves if they really want to succeed.

1. Am I being too emotional?

When emotions take over your judgment or decision, your ability to think objectively and logically get impaired. That’s when you make blunders such as retaining an incompetent and lethargic employee, or arguing with an irritating client. Essentially, you’ll be taking action and judgment that won’t entirely be in the best interest of the company.

2. Am I favoring employees?

This “habit” greatly affects employee morale and confidence. The “favorites” often get so much spotlight that others feel their efforts to go the extra mile would go overlooked and unrecognized.  And that’s when you as a leader in a team office space have failed to use and develop every talent’s true potential.

3. Am I sharing my vision with my team?

If you haven’t shared and discussed your vision with your team then your efforts to attain and accomplish them will backfire. It’s because great and successful leaders depend largely on strong, capable and empowered teams. You need to communicate and discuss your vision with them, you can rent a meeting space to brainstorm with your team, get their ideas and feedback to help you execute your plan towards achieving your company goal or vision.  

Conclusion

These three questions may seem simple at first, but their meaning to your success is extremely tremendous. Further, is your workplace an awesome place for your team productivity and efficiency? YourOffice has come alongside hundreds of business looking for everything from staffed flexible offices to agile office space. We know your business is unique, and your office space shouldn’t be any different. Let us match the perfect space or service to fit your business needs.

Here are some truths to guide you accordingly if you want the flexibility and autonomy of remote work.

  1. Remote work requires commitment.

Legit remote positions entail real work and dedication. Just like any other job in an office space, you’ll be held responsible and you will have a leader to check your work on a regular basis to ensure that you complete and submit your assignment in a timely manner.  

  1. Applying for remote work is diverse from regular office work.

You need to build your personal brand, engage in social media and discuss industry news, create a portfolio, and learn how to write interesting contents/articles that will draw the attention of hiring managers. You need to be flexible because you might need to go through a paid trial period before you finally get hired.

  1. You don’t need to work the same hours with the rest of the team.

If you want to work from home, you should conduct business as if you were working in a team office space. You should fully understand that you still have to stay on top of deadlines and deliver quality work.

  1. Find your designated home office space.
