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.

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.

Five Tips to Maintain a Healthy Relationship with Social Media
Posted On March 26, 2019 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

The rise of social media has changed the way we view the world. More than 70 percent of Americans are actively engaged on at least one social platform, but if we’re talking about millennials, that number climbs to about 98 percent.

In business, these numbers are too significant to ignore. If every customer you want to reach is on social, it stands to reason you want to reach them in that way. It’s part of your marketing strategy, it helps you generate new leads, and it’s a way to stay on top of the competition.

And what about your personal social profiles? Everybody’s got a few. The average person in the United States maintains seven social profiles. At the end of the day, that’s a lot of time spent on social. At some point, if you don’t get a handle on it, it’s going to start to affect your real-world, terrestrial life.

But how do you turn away when there’s so much going on all the time?

The truth is, turning away will do you, your relationships, your productivity, and your psyche a lot of good. The problem is, that’s easier said than done.

Here are our five top tips for maintaining a healthy relationship with social media:

1.    Schedule your daily social media time

Determine a set amount of time to update your pages, post content, and respond to messages on social. Set the timer on your smartphone and don’t ignore it when it goes off.

2.    If you really want to talk to your friend, call them

Along with being a super-computer, a CMS, and a fabulous camera, your smartphone is actually an excellent tool for making phone calls. Miss that person? Give them a call! Don’t have their phone number? They’re probably not your friend.

3.    Disable social notifications

Notifications are a great way to kick your social media anxiety into high gear. In your settings, you’ll find that you can disable them. This way, you can check in during your allotted time (see #1) and otherwise just get on with life.

4.    Embrace the moment

Authenticity is cool. Authenticity is all about being who you are. However, you can’t be authentic if you’re always focused on what other people are doing. Take the time to revel in your own life. Make your own moments. Because there is nothing more authentic than just being yourself.

5.    Choose your social platforms wisely

In business, as in life, there’s no point in investing time into something that you’re not going to get any value from. Having too many social profiles dilutes your efforts, and if you aren’t active on them, it could actually do more harm than good. Choose the platforms that are most beneficial to you and delete the rest.

Do you have any great tips for maintaining a healthy relationship with social media? We’d love to hear about them! Drop by Lakeside Executive Suites for a tour and get some honest-to-goodness face time.

Flexible Office Space for Your Growing Business
Posted On July 21, 2016 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Starting a new business can be expensive and time-consuming.  When you simply want to focus on your business, you will soon find that opening an office can be more challenging than you originally planned.  All too often, small businesses settle for a less-than-desirable location because of the up-front cost required to establish a new office.  Some of these challenges include long-term leases, purchasing of furniture, IT infrastructure, and the management of the space. Flexible office space, like Lakeside Executive Suites, makes it possible for businesses at any stage to have a professional office in a great location at an affordable rate.  Most importantly, the workspace solutions offered by flexible office spaces are turn-key and can help get your business up and running immediately with minimal cost.

Business is growing?

Making the transition from part-time to full-time office space in a flexible office environment combines the freedom of having your own office space with the convenience and benefits of being part of a community.

Need a Place to Meet?

Give your team the resources they need to succeed without breaking your budget.  Need a place to meet with your clients or your team?  You can easily schedule a day office or meeting room in a flexible office space with no monthly commitment.  On-demand meeting rooms are available by the hour, day, or week with services such as catering and notary available upon request.
