Nowadays, remote work continuously gains its popularity and for absolutely good reasons.  Nevertheless, Chad Reid in his article, 6 Roles That Can’t Be Performed Remotely says that working remotely isn’t suitable for every job because some of the jobs require in-person collaboration or due to office equipment restrictions where physical office space needs to be maintained.

Here are four jobs that may not be ideal for remote work and thus, need to rent office space.

  1. Operations

Operations employees need to be in-house because they have a finger on your company’s pulse. In other words, they are the ones responsible for keeping abreast of the most recent changes and progress of your company. They are frontlines of keeping customers and clients happy and satisfied, so if your customers want to meet at your office, you have a decent meeting space to meet them.

  1. Designers

Design work involves more feedback than any other job within most companies and it is extremely collaborative. Having in-house designers in shared office space makes the process faster and easier, and yields better result.

  1. Videographers

Moving heavy and expensive equipment for awesome video projects from one place to another is risky. So, in-house videographer/s to work with other fellow workers in one designated office space enables your marketing team to create and produce great videos easier and faster.

  1. Interns

Hiring interns is an opportunity for your company to offer training to enthusiastic, passionate, young professionals trying to get essential experience in their early careers, making them ideal hires when new full-time positions open up. Given the supervision needed to give your interns a great experience with your company, it’s more reasonable to have them supervised in person.

Conclusion

Working remotely isn’t suitable for every job, but if you need workplace solutions in Philadelphia to suit your business needs, YourOffice Philadelphia offers you a wide choice of office and workspace solutions: flexible office space Philadelphia, team office space Philadelphia and virtual office Philadelphia.

4 Quarterly Tax Filing Blunders to Avoid

A recent article, 4 Quarterly Tax Reporting Mistakes You Don’t Want to Make by Choncé Maddox says the entrepreneurs may have to pay taxes four times a year, but most of them are not too excited about filing taxes.  However, self-employment taxes can be huge and to keep your finances organized throughout the year can be difficult. 

Paying taxes is inevitable, so avoiding the 4 quarterly tax filing blunders will help you run the process more smoothly.

1. Not Paying Quarterly Estimates

The IRS imputes a penalty if you don’t pay the quarterly estimated taxes, so the huge mistake that you can do as an entrepreneur is to wait until April to pay your taxes.

 As a business owner in a shared office space, you have to be wise about your money, so an accountant can remind you of the deadline of the tax payment and give you the estimate of how much you have to pay each quarter.

2. Undervaluing Your Quarterly Payments

The IRS imposes an interest penalty if you underpay your estimated taxes, so it is very crucial that you have a reliable accounting software to properly track your income and expenses and have a trusted accountant to give you tax advice.

3. Insufficient Tax Savings

No tax savings would place you in a tough situation when you cannot pay your quarterly estimated tax. Make sure you have sufficient funds allocated for quarterly taxes to avoid late payment penalty and underpayment interest.

4. Not Keeping Payment Receipts

The IRS may make mistakes, and you might be told that you are missing payments. Paying taxes and not having those payments credited is a worse scenario that you don’t want to experience.  So ensure that your tax payment receipts are intact.

Conclusion

Paying taxes is your responsibility and avoiding these four tax payment blunders will prevent your business from unnecessary costs.  Once you pay your taxes diligently and in good term with the IRS, you can have tax refunds/savings that you can use for relocating your office in the business center of Orlando.  YourOffice Orlando has come alongside hundreds of business looking for everything from staffed flexible offices Orlando to agile office space Orlando. 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.

A recent article, 9 Ways to Become More Emotionally Intelligent by Lindsay Kolowich states that in a world more prone to speaking than listening; it can be difficult to listen to others let alone our own emotions. Failing to do so can be a big mistake as our emotions can teach us many things and can be the key to building better relationships. That’s where emotional intelligence becomes so vital.

Here are things you can do to increase your emotional intelligence.

Know your own emotional tendencies.

You can only learn to manage your own emotions if you learn to recognize them. Begin to take notice of how you feel in certain situations, such as traffic jams or how your treated in your individual office space; what’s your emotional state? Begin to connect the dots between what happens in your day and how you behave.

The better you identify and understand your emotions and behavioral impulses, the better you can handle them.

Learn to manage negative emotions.

Letting go of things as they happen is important. Rather than holding a grudge, feeling misjudged, or bitter, forgive others and the situations around you. Don’t just stuff your emotions. Allow yourself to feel the injustice or difficulty of a situation and then release it. This can teach you to use criticism as a means to grow, and will make your life and communication healthier.

Give voice to difficult emotions when necessary.

Being honest with others about how you feel promotes trust and helps people feel comfortable opening up to you. It’s ok to say no, have boundaries, and express disagreement. But, it’s not necessary to do so in an angry or aggressive way.  Calmly expressing things when appropriate will foster emotional intelligence.

Take responsibility for your actions.

Taking responsibility for your actions shows people you’re self-aware, honest, and committed to be a part of a team in your team office space.

Be open-minded.

Listen to other people’s points of view before judging them. If you take the time to see it from their view others will feel more trusting and not fear your disapproval. 

 Conclusion

Emotional intelligence is crucial to your success in business and the good thing is,it can be improved. There’s always room to grow and if you want to improve your business workplace, YourOffice is a leader in providing the most prestigious executive office space and shared office space for any size business. Convenient, hassle free, and move in ready- our offices, meeting rooms, and conference rooms are designed to meet your business’ every need.

A recent article, 5 Ways to Give Back to Your Business in the New Year by Clate Mask says that if you’re fond of giving gifts, well new year is the best time to give back to your business and to yourself as well.

Here are four gifts that will help you build a healthy, flourishing business in 2016.

Tasks delegation

Taking your hands off day‐to‐day operations of the company can be frightening, but it’s something you may have to do in order to thrive.

Consider virtual office plan that includes a professional receptionist to answer calls “live” in your business’ name, voicemail and call transfer, or you can delegate much of what you do to your trusted employees.

A Coach

You don’t always see what others see clearly when you’ve got your nose to the grinder 24/7.

Get someone from outside your organization (a professional coach or a reliable friend) that will shoot straight with you, to help you see above everything else so that you can make the right decisions.

Healthy Habits

If you’re sickly and weak, you’re missing chances to grow personally and professionally.

Getting your heart rate up on a regular basis will help you have strength and focus on making wise judgements. And when you get into regular rhythms of exercise, your mood will improve, which your workers will appreciate.

Time to read great books

To keep learning as a leader is to listen to those who have gone before us.

One of the easiest ways to do this is to read great books like Beyond Entrepreneurship: Turning Your Business into an Enduring Great Company by Jim Collins.

Thirty minutes of book time every day can go a long way.

Conclusion

Give your business the opportunity to flourish and become the company you’re dreaming of. And one best gift you can give to your business is a workplace where you can collaborate with your team efficiently and effectively. YourOffice is a leader in providing the most prestigious executive office space and shared office space for any size business. Convenient, hassle free, and move in ready‐ our offices, meeting rooms, and conference rooms are designed to meet your business’ every need.

A recent article, How technology is changing the way businesses operate by Waqar Hassan says that without a doubt, technology is an integral part of today’s humanity. The world is becoming more and more interconnected by the day. It affects our lives, our home and our business.

It can benefit companies big and small in many ways and has undoubtedly had a great impact on all companies and the way they operate.

Here’s how technology influences business operation:

Speed and accuracy
Computer systems allow businesses to do things more quickly. Computers also tend to be much more accurate than the ordinary human worker. Actually, according to the BBC, many employments are going to be at risk over the next few decades because of technology. There’s already a robot-only factory in China. This goes to prove that technology can get jobs done much more quickly and efficiently.

Outsourcing
Many companies outsource to remote workers in a Shared Office Space, some of the basic tasks such as data entry and customers service over the phone. This makes it easier for businesses as they can get their employees to focus on the more pressing matters at hand, rather than the more simple tasks which still have to be done.

Communications
Technology facilitates you to communicate with anyone, anywhere and anytime. If someone is absent from the workplace, you can easily communicate with them, ensuring there’s little disruption. Communication is more instantaneous and affordable, especially with tools like the internet and social media.

Virtual location
Instead of relying on physical office like an Agile Office Space, technology is allowing many companies to establish virtual office space instead. This is a cheaper alternative and it doesn’t force employees to work in the same place daily.

Conclusion
Technology is constantly evolving and changing.  If you want your business to thrive and be competitive, learn to adapt to new technologies and be ready to adopt them. YourOffice is looking forward to assist you with your growing business needs to stay afloat in the digital business world. YourOffice features a network of world-class business addresses. Each location offers beautifully appointed day offices and team office space that are fully wired and ready for you to move in and start working.

A recent article, Take 4 Steps Back to Move Your Small Business Forward by Adam Root says that one of the best ways to help your small business succeed is to go back to the basics. By establishing a strong foundation, you can make internal problem-solving a cornerstone of your business model.

Below are four basic tips to help your business thrive.

  1. Understand the problem of your clients.

Write down the problem you are trying to solve.

Successful entrepreneurs want to make the world a better place and they aren’t in it just for the money. That kind of motivation leads to advancement.

  1. Make something people actually want.

Regardless of how well you think you know your clients, it’s significant to understand whether they want what you’re selling.

To know the answer, make a one-page website that explains, in straightforward terms, what problem you’re solving, and for whom. Include a call to action asking customers to give their email addresses to receive “early access.”

  1. Meet your target demographic without pitching to them.

Look for meeting rooms for rent and arrange meetings with some of your potential and existing customers to solve problems.

Your focus should be on keeping a sharp ear out for concerns or problems and asking, “Why”.

  1. Know customers’ complaints and be ready to resolve them.

Look for recurring patterns in your customers’ behaviors to find out what you’re doing wrong and be ready to resolve them.

Keep talking to more clients to determine what modifications and enhancements you’ll need for your product.

Conclusion

Running a business is a tough job, but the reward can be well worth the toil if you’re willing to invest from the inside out. YourOffice can help you ease the burden of maintaining an office and help you focus on maximizing your productivity. YourOffice is a leader in providing the most prestigious executive office space and shared office space for any size business. Convenient, hassle free, and move in ready- our offices, meeting rooms, and conference rooms are designed to meet your business’ every need.

If your small business is just starting out, the Christmas bonuses you are able to offer may not be as generous as you (or your employees) were hoping for. So, if your monetary gift is meager, below are a few ideas to help improve a holiday bonus.

Extra Paid Vacation Days
Surprise your team with some extra time off, that they can cash in during the new year.

Holiday Ham or Turkey Give Away
Give your team the gift of one-less-thing-to worry-about-during-the-holiday-season. Especially if your employees have children or will be doing the majority of holiday cooking, a sizeable free ham or turkey is a great annual gift.

The Good Stuff
If you plan to gift your employees with wine or spirits, make it a special treat. Choose something exotic and expensive, something to enjoy, that they wouldn’t normally purchase.

Date Night
If your employees have significant others, create date night packages to surprise them with. Each package could contain movie tickets for two and a gift card to a romantic restaurant. Depending on how well you know your team and their partners, you could even personalize the package contents for each couple. This takes more time and creativity than other gifts, but if you have created a close bond with your team, it would be a very meaningful gesture.

Gift Cards
These aren’t original or personal, but if your team is new and you are unsure what to get them, you can’t go wrong with a gift card. Especially if the gift card treats them to a delicious meal or a popular shopping establishment.

Don’t be a Scrooge
Even if your budget is too low to give your team an impressive raise or bonus, there are other ways to make them feel appreciated. However, as your business grows, keep looking for ways to improve your budget. Perhaps you are paying too much at your current business location, or maybe you are paying for extra space or amenities that you don’t need. If so, consider contacting YourOffice. YourOffice offers you a wide choice of office and workspace solutions: flexible office space, team office space and virtual office packages. You’ll have access to a complete array of office support and concierge services as well as state-of-the-art business technology.

Would you like to go virtual this year? Well, give it a try! A recent article, Annis: Switching to a virtual office? 6 things to consider by Jim Annis gives you things to keep in mind when considering going virtual in whole or in part.

  1. It can be a game-changer

Switching to virtual office cannot be done hastily, abruptly and without the analysis from your core team as to whether it is the correct thing for you to do. This can be a game-changer—you may win or lose.

  1. What is the need for a customer base?

Ask yourself the following significant questions.

  • What does my customer base require?
  • Is there a need for a building?

For instance, if you want to keep the charm about the Santa’s Workshop alive, then going virtual is not possible.

  1. Staff communication

Going virtual requires a strong commitment to a communication plan because you need to collaborate with staffs who may be thousand miles away.

For example, you may consider HD Video Conferencing rooms for rent or Video Conference rooms for rent to help you conduct seamless meetings and retain vital links with the people who help make your business flourish.

  1. Adapting your team

Allowing your workers to work at home rather than in a team office space will enable you to distinguish who is efficient and who is not, and then make decisions from there.

  1. Adjusting virtual leadership

You have to adapt with a virtual setting to be effective in showing the way, motivating shared vision, challenging the process, allowing others to act and encouraging them.

You can institute a virtual whiteboard where everyone shares their insights/ideas and live chatting, allowing everyone to comment.

Conclusion

Going virtual depends on the kind of  business and how it works.  Nevertheless if you are considering switching to virtual in whole or in part, YourOffice is looking to help you with appropriate solutions for your business requirements.
