“We’re experiencing increased demand from companies seeking our workspace environment. In our private offices workers can remain productive while maintaining social distancing, without feeling completely isolated from the outside world. Our flexible lease terms give companies the agility they need to respond to changing market conditions, and the services which we include allow workers more time to focus on their core business and revenue generating tasks. Our various virtual programs are a perfect complement by giving their teams the support needed to maximize productivity. They can choose any combination of services such as professional call answering, mail handling, or conference room usage on occasions when they need to have an in-person meeting,” says Carrie Gates, VP of Leasing & Marketing.

Barrister is actively leasing offices for their new Beverly Hills location and offers a full range of Virtual Office Packages which start at $99.

Top 5 Strategies to Have a Productive Business

man sitting at desk and working remotely

Staying productive during work hours is always important, but now it’s more challenging than ever to stay productive due to COVID-19. Many of us are working from home which means adapting to a new work environment and having to deal with way more distractions. If you are struggling to maintain productivity during this time, below are some tips on how to stay productive during the pandemic and also during a normal work setting.

1. Manage Your Workspace and Storage Area

This is important for COVID-19 work conditions as well as normal working conditions. If you are working from home, be sure to designate a spot specifically to work that is away from other areas of your home that are meant for other things like eating and sleeping. This will help to reduce distractions and keep yourself focused.
Always be sure that your desk and work area are neat and organized. Everything should have a designated spot and be easy to find so that you don’t waste time looking for the items you need to complete a task. Also make sure that your desktop is not cluttered so that documents are easy to find and that you do not get overwhelmed.

2. Be Sure to Set Boundaries

Make sure you have a strict start and end to your workday. At the end of your workday, put the computer away and stop checking your email. This may be hard to do while working from home, but make sure you are setting these boundaries to prevent burnout. Also, make sure you are getting outside during this time. Some people find that taking a short walk before and after work can replace their work commute and give them the time they need to get in and out of work mode.

3. Use Digital Communication Technologies

During this time of social distancing, digital communication technologies like Zoom and Google Meets are among the limited ways to maintain a visible connection to others. Access to these technologies has promoted connectivity and productivity when working remotely. As we reenter the workplace, assessing to what extent such tools will continue to be of value to your business is a worthwhile endeavor.
Phone calls take away from the body language, eye contact, and connection needed to have a productive conversation. If you are having frequent phone calls with clients, try offering them video chats instead to enhance your meetings and conversations.

4. Keep the Team Motivated and Keep a Positive Attitude

Times are difficult for many of us right now and the uncertainty of the future could be weighing on your employees. Be sure to check in with them frequently during this time, but also during normal working conditions. Your employees want to feel valued so make sure you are showing them that you care about their physical and mental well-being. Also, try your best to maintain a positive attitude and encourage your employees to do the same. Our perspective is our greatest power and it can either empower you or drag you down.

5. Be Sure to Do Your Research

In addition to staying apprised of pandemic news in general, be sure to avail yourself of industry-specific updates and reporting. An unprecedented set of circumstances demands a reexamination of existing business practices and pivoting to adapt to a new reality. Identifying and implementing innovative solutions will assist your business in emerging from the pandemic as a viable entity.

Barrister Executive Suites allows you to have all the benefits of working remotely while also having a physical business address through our virtual office packages. To learn more about the virtual office packages offered at Barrister Executive Suites, contact us today.

Tips on How to Manage Your Mental Health During Quarantine

During this time of social distancing and isolation during quarantine, many of us are finding it difficult to maintain our mental health. This sudden shift in the way we live our daily lives is hard to adjust to and it can feel like you are living one continuous day. It is always important to practice self-care and to improve your mental health, but it is especially important during these trying times. If you are struggling with your mental health due to the effects of quarantine, below are some tips on how to practice self-care during this time.

Establish a Daily Routine

Keeping a daily routine can help keep a sense of normalcy and can help you stay productive. Be sure to start your day like you would any other workday to help you stay focused and feel like you are in an “at-work” mindset instead of an “at-home” mindset. Also, be sure to designate a spot solely for work that is away from areas that are meant for other activities such as eating and sleeping. This designated work area can help you stay focused by minimizing distractions and can help lower anxiety.

Stay Connected to the Outside World

Be sure to keep in touch with friends and family not only to reduce boredom, but to also reduce the feeling of isolation. Take advantage of the numerous digital communication technologies at your fingertips and call your family, text your friends, or video chat with your coworkers. Humans are social beings who need social interaction to be happy and healthy so make sure you are fulfilling this instinctual need.

Focus on Your Physical Health

Mental health and physical health go hand-in-hand. In order to have optimal mental health, you need to also focus on maintaining your physical health. Be sure you are eating healthy foods, drinking a lot of water, and keeping yourself moving. Take advantage of the numerous workout videos on the internet and use them to stay active.

3 Benefits of Working Remotely

Many people’s daily routine consists of waking up, grabbing some coffee, getting ready for work, and heading out to the office. However, with the rising popularity of working remotely, more people are finding themselves with a much less hectic morning routine. Remote work can have many benefits for people, and we discuss these benefits below.

Saving Time

Depending on where you work, daily commutes can be anywhere from five minutes to a few hours. One of the major benefits of remote work is that it could either eliminate or greatly decrease the amount of time spent on traveling. This saved time may allow you to sleep in a little later, spend more time with your family, or even start work earlier.

Unique Office Spaces

Working remotely allows people to create an office space where they feel most comfortable and one that accommodates all their needs. If someone has a disability that makes it difficult to leave their homes, working from home can help alleviate stress and help prevent injury. Although working from home is great for many people, working remotely doesn’t just mean working from home. A great benefit of working remotely is that the world is your office, or at least areas of the world that have internet connection. Whether it be a coffee shop, a hotel, a bookstore, or anywhere in between, you can make your office scenery different every day when you work remotely.

Increased Productivity

Working from home can create a more productive workday. If you have a designated place of work, all of the distractions, noise, and people in the environment cannot be changed. When working remotely, you choose your office space, and you decide what type of environment is best suited for you to have optimal productivity. Also, reducing the travel time to work allows the employees to have more time to buckle down into work.

Overall, working remotely helps many people have a better work-life balance. This work-life balance can help reduce stress and improve your life at work. Barrister Executive Suites allows you to have all the benefits of working remotely while also having a physical business address through our virtual office packages.

How to Impress Your Customers With Your Office Space

Shared office space in southern california

When a current or potential client or customer walks into your office, your business’s office space is their first impression of you. Everything from the art on the walls to the chairs they sit in is a representation of your company’s brand. An office space design that is functional as well as visually appealing has many benefits for your company, your clients, and your employees.

Avoid Overused Designs

There is a good chance that a potential client entering your office has either already been to your competitor’s office or will be going there after yours. In this case, you really want your office to stand out against the others and hopefully influence the client to want to return. One of the most overused design elements for offices are motivational quotes and inspirational messages framed and hung onto the walls. Depending on your company’s culture, this type of design element can be overwhelming to employees and clients due to the amount of clutter on the walls.

Although it’s important to make your employees feel comfortable at work, having gaming consoles, hammocks, slides and swings may create a negative image in a client’s mind. This type of office design may make the client feel that there is more relaxing going on in the company and less work being done.

One of the best choices you can make for your office space is natural light. Many of the office spaces at Barrister Executive Suites offer floor to ceiling windows with beautiful views of Southern California. Natural light can help your space feel more open and inviting and can make employees feel more alert and productive.

Allow the Employees to Customize Their Space

Allowing your employees to customize their work space can help them feel more relaxed, which in turn can increase productivity. Incorporating your employee’s own unique design elements can also help the office feel less sterile and more welcoming by creating a design variety in the space. When it comes to office design, it is important to remember that not everything has to be the same, because that can sometimes create a boring space.

Invest in the Quality of Your Décor

Most offices have commercial carpets and seating which are great for functionality, but not so great for unique, eye-catching office design. Investing in statement pieces such as abstract wall art or vintage rugs can elevate your design to the next level. Make sure that your office space is leaving a lasting impression on your all current and future clients and customers!

If you are looking for a beautifully designed office space that is budget-friendly, Barrister Executive Suites offers many office programs to fit the needs of your business and your employees. With 20 convenient locations throughout Southern California, our outstanding service and flexibility can help take your business to the next level.

Questions You Should Ask Before Acquiring Your First Office Space

A business meeting that is taking place in a shared office space

For first timers, renting an office space can be confusing and intimidating. Understanding how each type of office space works and which one is the right fit for your business requires asking the right questions when touring a potential office space. Here are the top four questions you should consider asking before committing to an office space for your business:

1. What are the Upfront Costs?

It is important to understand just how much your new office space is going to cost you. While the monthly rental cost may appear great on paper, you could find that once other expenses are factored in, your new space may not be so affordable. Be sure to ask about pricing for a security deposit, attorney fee, furniture, parking, and office utilities. Shared offices at Barrister Executive Suites come fully furnished and provide receptionists as well as administrative staff. Knocking these two expenses off your list can be highly beneficial for those who are first-time office renters.

2. What are the Policies for Moving in and Moving Out?

If you need to move into your new office space quickly, it is important to be aware of the workspace provider’s policy for moving in and moving out. You need to make sure you are not waiting for an extended period of time for the space to be ready and understand your responsibilities when moving out. If you are using a traditional office lease, make sure to note the length of your office rental lease. Most traditional office leases are on a yearly basis, while many shared office spaces offer month-to-month contracts.

3. What is Included in this Office Space?

Understanding the perks your potential office space offers is a huge factor in your decision-making process. If your business is in need of extra storage, conference rooms, after hours security, or a kitchen, it is important to be made aware of what will be included in your office package.

4. Who Else Works in this Space?

Lastly, it is crucial that you know if you will be sharing your office space with other businesses. If you are considering a coworking space, make sure your businesses can coexist in a professional setting, since it is important for the well-being of your business and your employees. Additionally, you want to make sure other businesses are not too loud or distracting for your company. If you are looking for a more private office space without the traditional long-term office lease, shared office spaces may be the right choice for you.

The 2020’s: The Decade of the Virtual Office

Advanced telecommunication driven by ever-evolving technology creates a world where virtual offices are more practical than ever. Over the past decade, we have seen virtual offices grow into an entity that is more realistic than anyone in the early 2000’s ever imagined. Now we are entering a decade where it’s often a more economic and strategic decision to have your business’s address be a virtual office.

The Technological Revolution

What was once an expensive and complex activity is now as simple as the click of a button. Most people have the ability to take their phone out of their pocket and immediately be in a face-to-face meeting with a colleague in today’s day and age. Also, the price of long distance and international calls has dropped significantly which makes communicating with individuals who are far away simple and cost-effective. These inevitable conveniences make utilizing a virtual office a great choice for many businesses.

Why Choose a Virtual Office?

The always online nature of smart devices makes working away from the office easier than ever before. Running a full-scale business without a physical location is now feasible with the utilization of a business address via a virtual office. Having a virtual office gives clients the satisfaction of knowing they are working with a legitimate business with a physical address, while simultaneously providing the business owner with a cost-effective and practical choice for their operations.

Barrister Executive Suites offers a variety of virtual office packages starting at just $99. Our virtual offices provide businesses with a prestigious business address, professional front desk staff, mail & package handling, and much more. Contact us today to learn more about how a virtual office can better your business.

How to Have a Healthy Workday

Having a healthy workday can be simpler than one might think. Surrounding yourself with healthy options rather than falling victim to the temptation of unhealthy choices could make the difference between a healthy workday and an unhealthy workday. It is easy to make unhealthy decisions when they are part of your daily routine, in order to combat this, set yourself up for success in a healthy manner with some of these tips.

Tips for a Healthy Workday

  • Stretch Frequently: Spend some time standing at your desk in order to increase blood circulation. Ultimately, standing up for 30 minutes or more a day while at work can boost energy levels significantly.
  • Invest in Healthy Snacks: Snacking is something that most employees do throughout the day. Instead of snacking on unhealthy items like chips, invest in some healthier options to leave at your desk. Fruits are a great option to keep around the office, or even something as simple as almonds could be a healthy choice.
  • Drink Plenty of Water: Keeping yourself hydrated is important for a healthy workday. Also, try to keep the coffee consumption down to remain hydrated throughout the day.
  • Don’t Forget to Breathe: Although this tip may be cliché, it is one of the most overlooked aspects of a healthy workday. Just taking a moment to stop and focus on your breathing can make you feel significantly better.
