Dull workplace? Headache-inducing 1980s office carpets? Mind-numbing office chatter cramping your creativity?
It might sound like a joke, but all this frustration is leading to something very serious: demotivation. Without motivation, your quality of work and level of productivity sinks slowly into a black hole, and we hate to break it to you, but it’s a downward spiral from there.
Demotivation: What’s the big deal?
The brains at Overbury, an office fit-out company, have discovered that dull office environments are a major grumble among office workers. Their results show that poor workplaces stifle ideas, with 29% of workers unable to generate new ideas at work. This can trigger a number of factors including demotivation, poor engagement, high staff turnover and a lack of productivity. The end result? Poor company performance – hence the ‘downward spiral’ effect.
But before you really start climbing the (floral) walls, it’s not all doom and gloom. 35% said they prefer to work from home because of their uninspiring workplace – and that’s where the virtual office steps in.
Time to go virtual!
Why be chained to a desk when your ideal workplace – and your creativity – knows no bounds? As a business owner, a virtual office takes care of your business address, mail, phone calls and even your meeting room needs. The rest of the time, you’re free to work wherever and whenever you wish. At home, in a coworking space, a hot desk, Starbucks, or even the garden. It’s all about working wherever you feel most creative.
The workforce is changing. More and more businesspeople are breaking free from the office to go mobile and work in a way that’s more flexible, more rewarding, and ultimately more productive.
Now’s the time to do something about it. Break the corporate mold. Get out of the office and into the freedom of a virtual office. It’s one-up for productivity and a kick in the teeth for demotivation.
