Flexible Alternatives to Traditional Office Space: Coworking
Posted On May 18, 2021 Posted By: Ysel Hernandez

Many people associate coworking spaces with individual freelancers and boot-strapped start-up teams. While coworking hubs offer the ideal workspace for these workers, large corporations may also benefit from investing in coworking memberships for their remote employees.  

Statistics show that many major enterprise corporations such as Microsoft, General Electric, and Salesforce provide coworking memberships to their employees. Enterprise adoption of coworking spaces is on the rise, showing a 90% increase in utilization. (CNBC)

Increased Productivity

While working from home may offer an employee flexibility, it also offers many distractions and interruptions. Kids, spouses, and pets all compete for attention. Home-based workers can quickly lose track of time as they watch some TV, take a shower, clean the house, or cook a meal. Homes are for living in, and offices are where work happens. 

We’ve seen a lot of data lately about hybrid work being the future, a recent survey conducted by Zoom, found that 65% of respondents who have been working from home said that a hybrid work environment was their ideal work model. 

A coworking space provides employees the opportunity to work in a professional environment when needed while still giving them flexibility to work from home. Coming into the office preps the mind for work, and being surrounded by other like-minded individuals encourages focus. Higher profits are the result. 

Coworking Provides Flexibility

Traditional office space requires a lease agreement with 3-5 year terms and significant upfront expenses. Companies can reserve coworking space by the day or month. There are no long commitments or hefty deposits. If a worker takes a vacation or needs medical leave, there is no need to pay for space that isn’t in use. 

Coworking is also scalable. Companies have the option to rent private office space and meeting rooms on demand by the hour, day, week or month. Whether you need to assemble a team for a short-term project or a long term agreement, coworking offers the flexibility to grow with your business.  

Coworking Space Is Less Expensive

One of the key benefits of coworking spaces is that it is cost effective. Some workers require dedicated offices, but many do not. In today’s digital age, few people are responsible for paper files that they must keep under lock and key. Coworking provides 24/7 access to a workspace for remote workers. The spaces come ready-to-go with all the essentials, including furniture, internet connection, printing center and reception service all for a low monthly fee. If a worker needs to meet with clients they can book a private office or a meeting room. This type of work model significantly reduces overhead costs compared to a traditional office. 

Designing workflow to be compatible with a coworking environment allows businesses to save significant amounts of money. Profit margins will be much higher without the expense of traditional office space. Those savings can be pocketed or re-invested. 

Chances to Network Increase Sales

Marketing is expensive and time-consuming. The easiest and cost effective way to market is by leveraging your network. Word-of-mouth and referral clients are usually willing to pay more because they trust your reputation. These types of clients are also known to be highly loyal, which reduces your churn rate. 

A coworking space is a great place for networking.  It is easy to partner and collaborate with other members. Members who work in the same industry can team up to help tackle larger projects, and members in related fields can refer clients to each other. 

Coworking leads to increased productivity, decreased expenses, and may even bring you new clients. Lakeside Workspaces in Weston, Florida offers daily and monthly coworking options with 24/7 access, high-speed internet, and free parking.

3 Reasons to Bring Workers Back to the Office
Posted On April 19, 2021 Posted By: Ysel Hernandez

It has now been a year since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic and it seems like the emergency is slowly coming to an end. With vaccine rollout already underway, businesses are starting to think about how they can encourage workers to come back to the office. 

Despite the fact that companies have realized that working remotely can work, the role of the office continues to be as important as ever. Moving forward, companies want to continue providing the flexibility that remote work allows, while still finding opportunities to bring workers together in person. 

Employers aren’t the only ones thinking about going back to the office; employees have figured out after a year that working from home is not all it’s cracked up to be. The reality of using an inadequate space as an improvised home office was soon reflected on declining productivity, inability to concentrate fully on tasks, a slow internet connection, and many other problems that made employees actually want to come back to the office.

If you are still unsure if you should bring your employees back into a workplace environment, here are 3 reasons why you should: 

Health and Wellbeing

It is true that the pandemic made us hyper aware about our own physical health, but less consideration has been made on our overall wellbeing including mental health. A study by Columbia University looked at the experiences of people around the world and found incidences of depression and anxiety across North America, Europe and Asia. This has been linked to the lack of social connections and  the distancing we’ve had to endure. 

Work is a place where we not only can connect with colleagues, but balance our work life and home life which seems to have blended in the past year. The opportunity to come back to work at an office, even if it’s a shared workspace, provides employees social interaction, variety and the opportunity to separate work and home. 

Improved communication

The internet and Zoom has made it easy for people to communicate with one another while working from home, however, it hasn’t been able to completely fulfill the benefits of face-to-face interaction. Remote workers quickly realized that their communication wasn’t as effective as what they had in the office, and with slower home internet, video conferencing has become quite frustrating. 

Having everyone back in the office, even if just part-time,  will definitely help improve not only communication, but will help increase employee engagement, create workplace harmony, and boost productivity. 

Strengthen company culture

No matter how hard companies try to maintain some sort of connection via virtual meetings, virtual chat rooms or virtual team building activities, employees working from home may start feeling completely detached from their employers. As humans, we tend to focus mostly on what is right in front of us which makes it difficult for business owners and managers to stay engaged with every employee. 

Working in an office on the other hand makes it easy for companies to build a strong company culture, as it is way more natural to build and strengthen relationships face-to-face. For companies that have decided to reduce their office real estate during the pandemic, shared workspaces such as executive suites and coworking spaces allow them the opportunity to book a meeting room for weekly or biweekly team meetings which can help strengthen company culture. 

Working from the office is never perfect, but neither is working from home. With the right workspace and business tools, flexibility at work can be a great option to workers back to the office. Lakeside Executive Suites in Weston, Florida offers workspaces designed with the flexible business in mind. Whether you need a private office, coworking space, or meeting rooms, we can help streamline your transition back to the office. Contact us today for more information.

Flexible Alternatives to Traditional Office Space: Virtual Office
Posted On January 19, 2021 Posted By: Ysel Hernandez

The new year brings with it many opportunities to start something new. Whether working on improving your mental and physical health, making time for a new hobby, being more engaged in your community, or starting a new business, now is is the perfect time to start working on your goals for the year. If you are looking to start a new business this year, it is a great idea to take advantage of all the tools that are available to set your new company on the path towards success. And when you take the COVID-19 pandemic into account, one of the most effective tools your new business must take into consideration is a virtual office. 

Here are a few reasons why a virtual office can be very beneficial to new businesses. 

Virtual offices are cost efficient

Studies show that businesses allocate between 15% and 46% of their budget to traditional office spaces. When you set up a virtual office you are able to reduce this cost significantly while still being able to retain most of the important perks that a traditional office offers you. 

Just like a traditional office, a virtual office can be established at a well known office building, so your business mail won’t be addressed to your home. 

This business address also ensures that your company will be perceived as professional and legitimate without the high cost that comes with a traditional office space.

Flexibility to scale the business

With a virtual office your business is able to scale as much and as quickly as you need it to. If you are thinking of entering a new market, all it takes is for you to set up a new virtual office at a corporate building in the city you are looking to be present in. A virtual office also frees you from long leases and risky long term commitments that may limit the possibilities of your new business. 

Another benefit that comes with a virtual office is the fact that you can book services such as live receptionists, mail forwarding, or rent conference and meeting rooms, day offices, and coworking spaces whenever you need them and for as long as you need them and without adding to your overhead costs or requiring your company to rent more space. 

Work from anywhere

Being able to work remotely became essential to every business in 2020. In 2021 the option to work from anywhere will remain an important feature for workers everywhere so it is a great idea to have this perk at your company. 

Additionally being able to work from anywhere greatly expands the talent pool you can consider when looking to hire. Instead of being confined to just your city, you are able to find the best of the best, wherever in the world they might be located. 

Lakeside Executive Suites in Weston, FL, offers affordable virtual office packages to help your business grow. Call today to learn more about what a virtual office can do for you.

Benefits Of Choosing A Flexible Workspace For Your Business
Posted On November 17, 2020 Posted By: Ysel Hernandez

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the way we work, and going back to what once was may be impossible. Companies around the world scrambled to continue with their operations as best as they could by implementing home office protocols, using new communication software, getting accustomed to video meetings, and attending or hosting virtual events and trade shows.

It was soon clear for both workers and organizations that working outside of the traditional office was not only possible but could also be very practical. 

Now this does not mean that working from home is the absolute best way of working. In fact, working from home can be far from ideal for most people and most businesses. For starters, the infrastructure is inadequate to say the least. In most improvised home offices there’s no ergonomic furniture, no private spaces such as conference rooms or calling booths, no completely reliable internet connection, even the atmosphere isn’t necessarily one that helps workers feel focused and productive. 

And just as companies and workers found out that there were so many solutions out there that made remote work much easier, it is time to find something that remedies the issues that come with the traditional office space itself. One such solution is getting an executive suite or flexible workspace for your business.  

Downsize Your Real Estate Footprint

For starters, using a flexible workspace helps you completely eliminate the need to invest in a large commercial space. As you may have experience during the pandemic, having a long and expensive lease on office space felt like a drain of resources that could have been put to better use. With flexible workspaces and executive suites you only use what you need, when you need it, and wherever you need it. 

This freedom not only helps you avoid lower costs but it can also enable you to look for new opportunities outside of your usual scope. 

No Long Term Lease

Another benefit of not having a long term lease on office space is that you are able to use a flexible workspace or an executive suite whenever it makes sense for your business. This could mean renting a flexible workspace for one hour every two weeks, using an executive suite twice a month, or spontaneously book a space whenever you need. 

This can also be a great solution for people that divide their work into projects of different durations such as designers, architects, developers, etc. For remote workers, a flexible workspace can serve as an HQ of sorts, where they can meet with their teams or collaborate with others in the organization. This helps create and maintain a strong sense of belonging among all workers. 

Flexibility to Scale Your Business

Additionally the flexibility that comes with this solution doesn’t only apply to workers, it can be very beneficial to your company as well. Now that business is slowly starting to pick back up, you may be considering the need to hire new employees and grow your company. 

A flexible workspace can help you scale your business by enabling you to easily add more offices whenever you need, for as long as you need. 

Flexible workspaces and executive suites can offer you the freedom you and your company need in these uncertain times. And the flexibility you find when working with these solutions can help inspire you to remain flexible yourself and find creative ways to successfully run your business. 

If you are a business looking for a flexible workspace, Lakeside Executive Suites in Weston, FL, is here to help. Reach out today to learn more about what we do and how we do it.

Resources for SMEs and Entrepreneurs to Weather the COVID-19 Pandemic
Posted On March 30, 2020 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

As the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic starts to affect entrepreneurs and small businesses in Lakeside have created a compilation of local and federal aid available to our clients to help them weather this emergency successfully. 

U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA)

This government agency provides support to entrepreneurs and small businesses. They summarize their activities as the “3 C’s” of Capital, Contracts, and Counseling. 

As an entrepreneur or small business owner, you might want to look into their Disaster Loan Programs, which have been updated to reflect the latest developments with regards to the Coronavirus Pandemic and the impact it already has had on the economy. 

Through their Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program, every small business owner is eligible to apply for a low-interest loan due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) of up to $2 million in working capital.

The SBA also has several loan resources available, including express loans, microloans, exporting loans, and many more.

Head to the SBA’s website for more information.

Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act or the CARES Act

Signed into law on March 27th, 2020, this bill addresses the economic impacts of, and otherwise responds to, the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. The bill authorizes emergency loans to distressed businesses. The bill also provides funding for $1,200 tax rebates to individuals, with an additional $500 payments per qualifying child. The rebate begins phasing out when incomes exceed $75,000 (or $150,000 for joint filers). The bill establishes limits on requirements for employers to provide paid leave.

Facebook Small Business Grants Program

Facebook is also offering financial support to small businesses in the form of cash grants and ad credits for up to 30,000 eligible businesses worldwide. They will be taking in applications in the next few weeks and you can sign up to receive more information as it becomes available. 

Check out their website here.

The Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program

This state-funded, short term, interest-free working capital loan program of up to $50,000 is available to Florida for-profit businesses with 2 to 100 employees. You can apply until May 8, 2020.

The Many Benefits of Offsite Meetings
Posted On May 14, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Meetings are a necessary component of any successful business. They help you to connect with your stakeholders and stay on top of crucial and timely details, but every small business owner can probably agree, meetings sometimes aren’t as productive as they could be.

If this is occasionally the case at your company, consider the many benefits of offsite meetings as they could be a way for you to breathe some new life and energy into the “same old-same old.”

The truth is, we spend a lot of time in meetings. Studies show that managers, in particular, attend in the range of 60 meetings every single month. For an activity that consumes so much of our time, it’s in everybody’s best interests to make sure these meetings are delivering the results you need.

Here are some of the benefits of offsite meetings:

1. Offsite meeting benefit #1: improve productivity

Offsite meetings bring your team into a fresh, new environment. Since you won’t be in the office, you will be removed from the usual distractions, such as ringing phones and other demands on your time and attention. Attendees will focus on the planned topic; resulting in improved productivity with your meetings.

2. Offsite meeting benefit #2: access to amenities

Holding an offsite meeting allows you to access technology that you don’t have at your home office, like state-of-the-art video conferencing or audio/visual equipment that can take your presentations to the next level.

3. Offsite meeting benefit #3: employee networking

For companies that have more than one location or who employ remote workers, an offsite meeting gives you the chance to bring everybody together. No matter how well your team works together, having a personal connection is always beneficial to the result.

4. Offsite meeting benefit #4: encourage innovation

Innovation tends to stagnate when people are looking at the same four walls, the same people, the same view out the window. New perspectives encourage new ideas, and this is what your business growth hinges on. Additionally, people tend to cling to what’s familiar and can easily get stuck in a rut; an offsite meeting will expose them to new faces, encourage interaction outside of their comfort zone, and stimulate new perspectives.

5. Offsite meeting benefit #5: show your teams that you care

While your staff might not jump at the thought of yet another meeting, they will likely be excited at the prospect of getting out of the office and having a change of scenery. With an upgraded meeting experience, a nice lunch, and the opportunity for some face time with team members they don’t often see, you’ll be demonstrating how much you value their contribution.

Are you looking for a location to hold offsite meetings? Our meeting rooms are available by the hour, day, or week, giving you access to the latest technology and every possible amenity to make your meeting a success. Call today to learn more about how we can help.

How Coworking has Changed the Way We Work
Posted On January 26, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

 

As remote working, freelancing, and entrepreneurship continues to strengthen the foundations of our economy, coworking has established itself as a viable way to work, build a business, meet and network with other, like-minded individuals.

How coworking benefits companies

Looking beyond the benefits to the individual, coworking is good for companies too. It has also allowed larger companies the ability to downsize, to let go of unused office space and instead provide employees with an open office environment that allows them the freedom they want while still maintaining a connection to their teams and their mission.

For companies that maintain teams in multiple cities, coworking provides them with an affordable option that makes growth possible. Maintaining coworking memberships helps companies provide their employees with every possible office amenity without having to outfit a new office and it supports profitability even during times of scale.

 

The evolution of coworking spaces

Coworking began in a tiny one-room space in San Francisco. Of course, there were precursors to it … the hackerspaces and makerspaces of 1990s Berlin came first, and then there were small business “incubators” or innovation centers that started popping up all over the world not long thereafter.

However, the first true coworking space was opened in 2005 by a coder named Brad Neuberg who was simply sick of working by himself. He was a social guy by nature, but, working remotely for his various clients was a lonely business and he felt that he would be more productive and happier if he could share his workspace with others just like him.

The idea was a bit of a sleeper, but it took off. Actually, even though the space itself was unremarkable (compared to many of today’s examples), Brad’s version of coworking was not lacking for amenities. As he shared space with a wellness center, massages and meditation were part of the picture, right from the beginning.

Many “oms” later, slowly and purposefully, coworking grew into a living, breathing thing. From such humble beginnings, his movement grew into a revolution. Today, there are almost 15,000 coworking spaces all over the world. It has disrupted the way we work, it has disrupted the real estate industry, and it has shown us how to look beyond the cubicle and forward into a world that values innovation and the power of collaboration.

Today, coworking has become an integral part of many business’ success. It provides entrepreneurs and solopreneurs with affordable options for building their companies. It supports global enterprise with a platform that allows them to scale with ease, and it is also an avenue that provides companies of any size the ability to optimize their workspaces without compromising productivity.

 

Has coworking changed the way you work? We would love to hear about it! Drop by Lakeside Executive Suites for a tour of our coworking space and discover how we can help you grow.

Getting Focused to Start the New Year
Posted On January 14, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

We all head into a new year with a lot of goals that we are totally motivated to accomplish. Finish the great American novel. Lose 20 pounds. Go to the gym more regularly. Land more new clients. Get out of debt.

But … what generally begins with a big push generally ends up getting derailed by circumstances beyond our control. Stuff happens, after all.

So, if you’re looking back on 2018 and trying to get a handle on what you actually did accomplish, you might find that some of your plans took a left turn here and there. And there may well have been good reasons for that, so don’t beat yourself up too much.

However, there are reasons that perfectly well-laid plans go awry. Knowing what these chicanes are may help you overcome them in the year ahead. Some of the reasons you may have lost focus include:

 

Lack of clarity. Your plan may not have been executable because there wasn’t much thought put into it in the first place. Without a plan, you lay yourself open to distraction and having to jump on other priorities as they present themselves.

Solution: Map out your path to success. Put it on the schedule. Prioritize it.

 

Setting too lofty a goal. If your goal is largely unachievable by any standards, it’s not likely you will get there.

Solution: If you want to increase your business, set a realistic goal of five percent growth. If you exceed it, celebrate!

 

You’re a procrastinator. If your goal is going to be difficult and you’re a procrastinator by nature, you run the risk of putting it on the back burner only to reapply it to next year’s list of resolutions.

Solution: Break difficult tasks down into smaller chunks and work them into your workflow in a comfortable way. Each step towards your goal will help you will gain the momentum you need to crack it open.

 

Getting focused in 2019: connecting smaller tasks to the big picture

Sometimes, we announce our goals without thinking about where the whole process is going to end up several years down the line. Connecting your immediate goals to a broader vision of the future helps to keep things in perspective. The ultimate goal may be unreachable in the short-term and things may change dramatically between now and then but being able to visualize the end result will help keep you on track – even if you have to readjust for market trends and other circumstances beyond your control.

So, if the ultimate goal is 25 years from now, you’ll have to look at shorter increments of time to set milestones in between. 90-day intervals are doable chunks of time and, generally, you will be able to see energizing results based on your efforts, tweak your methodology, and move forward into the next 90 days with confidence.

90 days is enough time to accomplish a lot. It also provides a high level of clarity along with a sense of urgency. At the end of it, you will move on to the next 90-day goal with renewed purpose, taking yet another step forward towards your ultimate goal.

Do you have any tips for staying focused? We’d love to hear about them! If you are a small business owner or entrepreneur, reach out today to find out how we can help you grow.

 

Ending the Year with Charitable Giving
Posted On November 30, 2018 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

As the end of 2018 draws closer, our thoughts naturally turn to the holidays and giving. For businesses of any size, charitable giving has long been a way to end the year right. It’s a great way to ease the tax burden, but best of all, it’s a way to get involved with causes that mean something to you and to make a difference in lives of those less fortunate.

At Lakeside Executive Suites in Weston, FL, we have chosen a cause that is very dear to our hearts. Children’s Harbor is a community organization dedicated to helping children in foster care, siblings, and teen mothers a place to belong and call home during some of the most trying times of their young lives.

They provide residential services and more, offering counseling, mentoring, and a way for siblings in care to stay together while issues such as abuse or neglect are being addressed.

They also offer residential maternity support for pregnant foster teens between the ages of 14 and 18 years, helping to break the cycle of abuse by helping them complete their education while addressing medical, psychological, and mental health issues that may impede their progress to independent living.

Of course, there is so much more that Children’s Harbor does, but the point is that they are providing essential supports for vulnerable children as well as the people who need it most. During the holidays, it is especially important to ensure that the children in their care have the ability to delight in the season and smile with the joy it brings. This is something we feel should be their right and we are proud to count ourselves as part of the solution.

 

Charitable giving for businesses: how to do it

If you are a new business, you may not have thought a great deal about charitable giving and what it means to you.

Here are some tips that you might find helpful:

1.    Choose a charity that has meaning to you

Just as Children’s Harbor has meaning to us, you can find a cause that pulls at your heartstrings. Heart and Stroke, cancer research, a local hospice, church group, humane society, homeless shelter, or mission are all great organizations you can consider.

2.    Time is just as valuable as money

Even if you don’t have a lot to give in the way of cash, you could find ways to help that are hugely supportive that don’t necessarily involve money. Help out by donating your time or business services to a local charity. Saving them money is just as valuable as giving it.

3.    Do your research

Don’t get taken in by a scammer this holiday season. There are plenty of disreputable people out there ready to relieve you of your cash for a cause that is either shady or non-existent. Check national non-profit databases like Give.org or Charity Navigator to be sure your donations are not falling into the wrong hands.

Do you have a favorite charity? We’d love to hear about it! Drop by Lakeside Executive Suites in Weston anytime and find out more about how we can help.

 

Make your Meetings More Productive
Posted On May 9, 2017 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Meetings are a necessary part of doing business, and essential to a team environment where there is input required from all of your colleagues. But if the mere mention of a meeting has your workforce running for the hills, maybe its time to rethink your meeting strategy. Meetings should be productive, they should encourage new ideas through discussion, and help co-workers understand what others are concerned about. However, if half of the room tunes out before its even begun, your meeting productivity is already out the window.

Here are some sure-fire meeting management tips to supercharge your productivity and maybe change the way your team comes to think of a meeting in general:

Meeting management rule #1: Be realistic.

Dont try to cover a hundred things in one hour. Having this kind of expectation always leads to the feeling that you didnt get anything done at all. Look at the key points you need to address, and focus on that.

 Meeting management rule #2: Make an agenda in advance.

Second to being realistic, having a clear agenda before you walk in is probably job one. take some time to consider everything that needs to be discussed, and prepare a list of topics to be covered, with bullets under each item to stimulate discussion. This will also help you remember to cover everything that needs to be addressed. Then, make a copy of this agenda for every attendee and have them ready at each chair when they arrive.

Meeting management rule #3: Make sure your technology works BEFORE you start the meeting.

There is nothing as frustrating and time wasting as taking 10-15 minutes to get your technology up and running. Make sure your meeting room is fully equipped with the latest technology and offers a plug and play environment so you can easily connect to devices such as a smart TV and a VOIP phone for conferencing

Meeting management rule #4: Everybody should have something to bring to the table.

Make it imperative that each person is responsible for one thing in the meeting. If its a general meeting, then assign each individual to bring an issue into the meeting they would like to discuss. This will keep them on point through the proceedings and help them feel like they are actually contributing.

Meeting management rule #5: Only invite people who need to be there.

If youre talking about finance, you dont need sales and marketing personnel in your meeting. If its about human resources, you dont need sales. Make sure the right people are at the meeting. If you only invite essential people, it will be easier to stay on track.

Meeting management rule #6: Dont stray off topic.

Sometimes its inevitable that the discussion goes off in another direction, but if you see it veering too far afield, even if its interesting and valid in a broader sense, rein it in and table it for another time. You only have so much time.
