W1 Virtual Office

It’s predicted that half the workforce will be working remotely by 2020

The reaction follows new claims that companies can make seamless transitions to virtual offices without any hassle. A spokesperson from W1 Office responds to the story.

Companies who want to make the transition to a virtual office can do so seamlessly and effectively, according to the founder and CEO of FlexJobs, Sara Sutton Fell. She believes that the switch for most companies has already started happening indirectly, and virtual office solutions will only grow more popular in the future.

“It’s predicted that half the workforce will be working remotely by 2020, but I believe it’s already happening informally,” claimed Fell. “Ninety-nine percent of professionals check email and take phone calls wherever they are, and the previous disconnect that existed between work and home is no longer there.”

During a recent study, FlexJobs identified 76 companies from a wide variety of industries who have all or almost all of their employees working from home. Fell believes that millennials who have already grown up around the technology associated with working in a virtual office are best suited to performing tasks remotely.

“When they were in college, they didn’t need to run across campus to go to the library,” she added. “They researched, wrote and turned in term papers from their dorm rooms. This generation hasn’t had geographic parameters to tell them how to work. Location and time is arbitrary, which means they adapt well to working outside of an office setting.”

W1 Office, a company that provides virtual office solutions to businesses up and down the UK, takes a keen interest in stories such as this. A spokesperson provided this statement: “Making the transition to a virtual office is indeed a very simple process these days, thanks to technology that can bring everything together seamlessly.

“Your business can be run effectively and efficiently by letting staff work from home, and they’re sure to repay their new found freedom with excellent results. Virtual office solutions will only help companies to make money in the long run.”

W1 Office endeavours to provide affordable virtual office solutions to businesses, start-ups and homeworkers across the globe. Their virtual office services allow individuals and companies to use business credentials in London, enabling their organisations to grow.
