A study on "The Vitual Office"
How to Drive Workplace Productivity
in a Virtual Office
By Laura Stack
The virtual office, administered and maintained via cyberspace, has truly come into its own. Your virtual assistant can live in Michigan and your receptionist in Florida, while your prestigious professional address may place you in downtown Manhattan, even if you run everything from your home in the Hamptons. When managed properly, this scenario can work well, since it cuts business costs to the bone, while maintaining the necessary professionalism.
But with every worker just a phone call or email away, a virtual office doesn't work the same way as the old-fashioned kind; in fact, it can exaggerate certain issues managers have always faced, while providing new ones to deal with.
So how do you drive workplace productivity in the virtual office of this brave new world?
Good communication has always been essential to the bottom line, but nowhere does it come into sharper focus than in the virtual office.
Always keep the lines of communication open in both directions. Make yourself available to your client via multiple means, if they feel they need to contact you. You needn't allow them to IM you or phone you personally, but they must be able to contact you by email at least,
If you have an assistant, you could route direct contact through them, so you can get your high-level work done.
Wrapping It Up.
The virtual office offers businesses opportunities scarcely dreamt of a few decades ago.
Now that our global communications web is up and running, we literally have the world to choose from.
Ultimately, it all comes down to good, old-fashioned communication. Once you've got that in place, you'll find it much easier to alignment on your transactions and goals.
