Office V Home. Which is Better for Working Productively?

In recent years, there has been a significant shift in the way people work, with more and more individuals opting to work remotely from the comfort of their homes. 

However, despite the allure of remote work, there are still numerous advantages to working from an office that make it a more appealing option for many individuals. 

In this article, we will explore the various reasons why working from an office may be better than working from home.

It's that sense of community...

One of the primary benefits of working from an office is the sense of community and social interaction that it provides. 

Working in an office environment allows for face-to-face interactions with colleagues, which can be invaluable for building professional relationships, fostering a sense of camaraderie, and creating a more cohesive work culture. 

In contrast, working from home can be quite isolating and lonely, with minimal social interaction outside of virtual meetings and calls.

What about home and work life?

Another advantage of working from an office is the clear distinction between work and home life. When working from home, it can be challenging to separate work time from personal time, leading to an imbalance between the two. 

This can result in individuals feeling like they are always on the clock and never able to fully disconnect from work. Conversely, when working from an office, individuals have a clear separation between their professional and personal lives, which can lead to greater work-life balance and overall well-being.

And then there's productivity...

Additionally, working from an office can be beneficial for productivity and focus. In a dedicated workspace, individuals are less likely to be distracted by household chores, family members, or pets. 

An office environment also provides individuals with access to necessary resources and equipment, such as printers, scanners, and other office supplies, that they may not have at home.

What about career opportunities?

Working from an office can also provide greater opportunities for career growth and advancement. In an office setting, individuals have greater access to mentors, networking opportunities, and professional development resources. 

In-person meetings and conversations can also facilitate communication and collaboration, leading to more creative solutions and better outcomes.

Is it more comfortable?

Finally, working from an office can be more comfortable and ergonomic than working from home. Offices are designed to provide a comfortable and ergonomic workspace, with adjustable chairs, desks, and lighting. 

In contrast, home workspaces may not be optimized for extended periods of work, leading to discomfort, eye strain, and other physical issues.

In conclusion

While remote work has become increasingly popular in recent years, working from an office still has numerous advantages that make it a more appealing option for many individuals. 

From providing a sense of community and social interaction, to facilitating better work-life balance and productivity, to offering greater opportunities for career growth and advancement, working from an office can provide a wide range of benefits that are difficult to replicate in a remote setting.

What to do now...

If you face some or all of the challenges above when working from home we have a solution? Our welcoming office spaces are the perfect solution for freelancers, entrepreneurs, and small businesses looking for a productive and professional environment.

Our offices are fully equipped with modern amenities such as high-speed internet, and meeting rooms. You'll also have access to a communal kitchen and your own designated parking space.

Located in the heart of Cheadle Stoke-on-Trent, our office spaces are close to great restaurants, cafes and shops and easily accessible from all main A roads and motorways making them great satellite options as well.

 A Virtual Office for Small Businesses

What is a virtual office?

A virtual office (VO) is a service that enables businesses to operate remotely while maintaining a physical presence in a particular location without having to pay real-world rent.

There are many features that virtual offices can offer, including a mailing address, a receptionist, phone services, voicemail, printing services, meeting rooms, and co-working desks if you need them.

Who is a virtual office for?

Start-Ups. Get up and running with minimal overheads, no long-term commitment, and a professional image from day one.

Sole traders. Run your business in a convenient way without losing the freedom to work from wherever you are.

Home Workers. Keep working from the comfort of your home and eliminate the drawbacks that come with it.
Freelancers. Take your business to the next level with flexible business support.

Virtual office advantages...

1. You get a real business address.

A business address enables remote businesses to establish a physical presence and enhance their reputation in a targeted area. 

Your address can be used anywhere you need it, including websites and business documents.  You can also use it to receive mail or packages.

2. Build your brand in a new location

By setting up a VO, you can expand your presence pretty much anywhere in the world.

Another bonus is that you don’t  have to pay for all the costs associated with maintaining a physical location (such as rent, utilities, repairs, business insurance, etc.).

3. Enjoy flexible terms

The good virtual office providers bill their clients on a monthly basis. That gives you much better control over your flexibility to opt out whenever you want to.

4. Pay only for what you need.

VO providers typically offer a variety of packaged services. That covers things like a company address, mail acceptance and forwarding, phone answering, and even the scheduling of conference rooms or desk access.

With a virtual office, you’re making sure that you’re only paying for what your company needs now.

5. Set it up quickly and easily

Because everything is done online, establishing a VO is typically quick and simple. And there is essentially no paperwork needed, unlike office space rental.

If you were considering growing your company, you could practically sign up for a virtual office membership right now and have a working address within 48 hours.

6. Decrease your company overheads

Forget about paying rent for a physical office space and all the other expenses that go along with it, such as office leases, hardware expenses, utility bills, and so on.

7. Benefit from autonomy and flexibility

You will have the flexibility to create a schedule that works for you, which is one of the biggest benefits of having a VO. 

8. Increased Security

Your home address is accessible to everyone if you use it as your business address. That leaves you open to unexpected visitors, such as a prospect or an unreasonable client.

The inconvenience of unsolicited visits jeopardises your privacy. Our virtual office packages put you back in control of your privacy and give you the flexible business support you need.

Another DaisyBank House Success Story

If you’re wondering whether moving from home into a fully serviced office would be good for your business, this testimonial from Tamsin Parker of Legs PR may just help you make up your mind.

We had the chance to ask Tamsin a few questions about her recent move to DaisyBank House Business Centre. You can read her answers below.

Q. What made you decide to move into an office rather than working from home?

A. Myself and my business partner Eleanor had been talking about it for a while before we decided to take the plunge.

We both own our own PR and Marketing companies (Legs PR and Making Marketing Sense respectively) and have a lot of joint clients that we both work with.

We were spending a lot of time on the phone or on Zoom calls talking about work and it just made sense to be in an office together.

I’ve worked with Nat at HCA for a number of years now, so I knew DaisyBank well and that it would be the perfect location and office space for us.

It’s exactly what we were looking for and we absolutely love it!

Q. What benefits have you seen from this?

A. The boundaries between work and home often become blurred when you’re working from home all the time and having an office really helps draw a line in the sand. It means my sitting room is now a room to relax in rather than a makeshift office!

There are far less distractions in a dedicated workspace so I’m more focused. I manage my time better too because I’m not putting the washer on or cooking the tea when I should be working.

It’s definitely helped Eleanor and I – it’s far easier to work on joint client projects together and has made us more focussed on what we want to achieve together in the future.

Q. Has is altered your client’s perspective of your company?

A. Yes, I think it has. It means we can have client meetings in our office, and I am sure we are winning more work with bigger companies because of it.

Q. What’s the reason you’ve decided to take a bigger office e.g., increased work, more staff?

A. We moved into our first office in May and on our business plan we’d originally said we wanted to be in a bigger office by 2023. The office we’d had our eye on became available and it was too good an opportunity to miss.

There’s more space, which means clients can come in and see us which means we no longer need to book a separate meeting room. Our suppliers can also come and work from our office if they want to which makes it much easier when we’re working big projects.

We’ve got big plans to grow and with a bigger office we’ve now got space for our future team members!

'Tis the Season for Teambuilding Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

If you haven't had a chance to think about Christmas work shindigs, now is a perfect time. Go down the classic route of going out for a meal with your team or host a fun-filled office party with some of the best Christmas team-building activities.

It's nearly the end of the year, and many companies enjoy celebrating the holiday season with work parties. Team-building activities are a fun way to get to know new co-workers, strengthen relationships between employees and boost company morale. To help you prepare for your office party this season, we've come up with some of the best team-building activity ideas to spark creativity and have a little fun in the process.

1. Secret Santa

Secret Santa is a time-honoured holiday tradition. If you haven't given it a go yet, you're seriously missing out. It's fun. It's festive. And it forces all involved to get creative when choosing their gifts. It's easy to see why it's so popular. It doesn't require a lot of preparation, it's relatively inexpensive, and everyone enjoys being able to give someone something they wouldn't necessarily buy for themselves. Plus, there are no losers in Secret Santa because everyone gets a gift.

How To Play

If you're unfamiliar with the game, the rules are simple. Everyone on the team draws a name and gets that person a gift they think they'll like (or not). The twist is that you can't talk about it with anyone (hence the game's name). It's a great way to get people out of their comfort zones and learn more about their co-workers. Read over our bonus tips to get the most out of the experience.

Bonus Tips

2. Name That Tune

No matter how many times you sing along to a Christmas song, it never gets old. Even if you grew up hearing the same songs every year (and hate them now), they're still a part of your holiday tradition. So what better way to celebrate the season than a few rounds of Name That Tune? This song game is a Christmas classic for a good reason. It's easy to play, and (almost) everyone has fun doing it. It's a quick-thinking game in which players must figure out the name of a song by listening to just a bit of it.

How To Play

Line up all the participants into two teams facing each other, preferably in an open area where they aren't going to run into anything if they jump around or collapse in laughter. Play a song and stop it at random points throughout the song. Have each team decide what song it is, then when you come back to them have them sing a line of the song to prove they were right. Give each team one point for each correct answer. The first team to get five points wins!

Bonus Tips

3. Murder Mystery

Forget the mince pies. Skip the fruitcake. A clever Murder Mystery game at an office Christmas party is always a sure holiday hit and a killer team-building activity (pun intended). At first thought, it seems more suited for a Halloween party instead but don't let that put you off. There's a ton of Christmas-themed scenarios out there for you and your team to play through. The idea is simple. There is a murder, and everyone must find the murderer within a certain amount of time. The more complex the plot, the better.

How To Play

If you're creative enough and have the time to prepare, you can orchestrate your own Murder Mystery. Start off by thinking of a captivating Christmas-themed plot, figure out the clues to supply the detectives with, prepare some props to act as evidence and watch it all play out. But don't worry, you don't have to reinvent the wheel by finding a Christmas-themed Murder Mystery kit. There's plenty of those online, and most are undoubtedly fun. It's a win whatever you do. The kit will likely come with a guide, evidence packs, character booklets and even costume suggestions or audio files to enhance the experience. That way, all you have to do is follow the instructions and have a murderous amount of fun.

Bonus Tips

Bring Your Team Together

An office Christmas party is a great chance to celebrate the holidays while also enjoying time away from the desks. There's no doubt that these fun office Christmas party activities are excellent at bringing teams together in a social setting. With a little bit of creative thinking, you're sure to come up with some unique Christmas party activities that your entire team will love. We hope some of our ideas will help get your creative juices flowing.
