Global Workspace

The way we work and where we work is changing more each day.  Large corporations are allowing employees to work from home or at Executive Office Suites, small companies are hiring specialized workers from different regions, telecommuters are on the go and looking for places where to connect and meet. 

Not too long ago, expanding into new markets meant large capital expenditures setting up new local offices and hiring support staff. Nowadays, a California company can attack the US NE local market by sharing office space in Boston o taking a workstation in Executive Office Space in Manhattan. Set up is done in a day instead of having to negotiate a complicated lease and hire attorneys and building contractors. Furnished offices are provided with support staff such as a receptionist and back office support. Meeting rooms and common areas are shared making the best use of resources and capital. 

Technology has opened the world for businesses to go global and allow for mobility. More often than not, meetings are taking place over the internet with live video and document sharing. The workplace has caught up with the trend and has evolved to global workspace offering Executive Suites, Virtual Offices and coworking facilities. 

Mobile workers, telecommuters, small companies, branch offices and entrepreneurs benefit from having fully-furnished full-service office space with flexible terms (committing to one hour, day, week, month or year) based on their needs. High speed internet, local phone numbers with call answering, receptionist on site, meeting and conference room usage and premium addresses are just some of the perks of working at a Global Workspace. 

In related news, the Office Business Center Association International (OBCAI), the trade association for Office Business Centers has unanimously voted to change its name to Global Workspace Association to embrace the variety of global offerings for mobile workers. Expectations are high as the main workspace organization adapts to today's trends and continues to focus on increasing awareness of the future of the workplace.
