  • How co-working is helping businesses thrive in Ireland | Re:think
    find at home the valuable advice and opinions of your colleagues the camaraderie of a working group or the all important distinction between your home and your job When you consider that 87 of our survey respondents in Ireland said that co working spaces offer great networking opportunities then you quickly realise that those who use this method of working get the best of both worlds They can keep the flexibility of working when and where they want but also learn from and develop networks with like minded people who are facing similar challenges And if you think taking your work into an open collaborative environment means you ll be more distracted think again Our study showed that 76 of workers in Ireland thought that flexible working made employees more productive and 71 said it fostered creative thinking Being part of a community For many people working from home can be an isolating experience Conversely those still stuck in a traditional office setting have to put up with the kinds of internal conflicts that are typical of almost any organisation competition politics and unwelcome office policies But in an environment where many of your neighbours aren t necessarily your fellow employees you re free to share ideas and perspectives without any of the potential backlash or ladder climbing you might experience in a corporate setting And it s not just about improving your work Our survey showed that 69 of remote workers have a better work life balance than employees while 92 said that they thought it helped parents and carers remain in work Taking control of your job Co working in a serviced office is all about flexibility Without the rigid limitations of a traditional office you re free to use a workspace only as much as you want

  • How virtual assistants boost productivity levels | Re:think
    commitment Because VAs are usually freelance you only have to pay them when you have extra work to hand out So if you ve just attended a one off trade show and have hundreds of new business contacts to add to your database they can do the repetitive task of data entry while you focus on the next step forward for your business And after the work is done so is your commitment If they did a great job you can hire them for another project next time And if they didn t you can just find someone else for the next one Since they re not an employee you won t have to worry about PAYE holiday entitlements pensions or National Insurance contributions either which is perfect for sole traders who need extra help but don t want the extra paperwork of becoming an employer There s a huge range of things they can do to free up your time The truth is that the vast majority of the tasks you d delegate to an employed assistant can easily be done remotely except perhaps making the coffee Of course before entrusting any of these jobs to a VA you ll need to be clear about your boundaries For example you wouldn t want them changing the wording on your marketing materials You could hire a virtual assistant to do online research such as vetting candidates or scoping out new competition or potential clients pay the business s bills and send and chase its invoices Just make sure you ve established a good relationship and a certain amount of trust first manage your e mails After you set out some clear guidance your assistant can respond to the everyday messages on your behalf while picking out the most critical ones to send over to you directly plan and book your business travel trips compose and send your e mail newsletters or marketing campaigns deal with any customer complaints or queries carry out all the social chores such as sending holiday greeting cards thank you notes to clients and so on There are only so many hours in a week that you can pour into your business before having a breakdown And with many of the smaller more repetitive tasks taken care of you can channel your energy and time into working on growing your business and making the big decisions But if you just need someone who can manage your phone calls and handle your mail from an impressive address it might be even more cost effective to get a Virtual Office Choosing a virtual assistant Remember while a VA might not be an employee they re still likely to be representing you and your business on a regular basis So choose wisely Here are a few of the most important things to look for in a VA Customer service skills They may just be virtual but they could be the ones responding to your clients and suppliers over e

  • Technology to make your workspace more comfortable | Re:think
    so far it seems to work A recent study found that 83 of workers were more satisfied after using Comfy in their workplace and in one particular workplace using Comfy helped to reduce their energy costs by nearly 25 2 Smart seating that saves spines Every office worker knows that prolonged periods of sitting aren t great for your physical health But while a few hours at the gym might help you burn off a few calories and strengthen your back muscles it won t do much for your bad sitting habits or your ill fitting chair That s why Dr Stephen Jia Wang of Monash University is busy at work on an office smart chair Sensors in the chair detect the various forces of your back and your legs while you sit collecting and analysing data that can then be compared to ideal spinal positions Based on your physical dimensions usual posture and any related medical problems the chair can send out texts and e mails to tell you how you can correct your posture It could even one day communicate with your sofa at home adjusting the settings of your home furniture based on how you ve been sitting during the working day Something needs to be done immediately to ease the negative productivity impact caused by musculoskeletal conditions like debilitating back pain said Dr Wang which now ranks with diseases such as cancer diabetes and heart disease as national health burdens particularly in industrialised countries 3 Localised light levels There have been plenty of studies on the benefits of natural light to the average worker But what happens when it all gets a bit too much Stylish offices with wall to wall windows might offer some breath taking views but closing the blinds against the full force
