Employee Recruitment Strategies: Virtual Office

The best businesses are built with talented employees, but finding talent can be difficult. Business owners must get creative to find, attract, and retain the best employees in their industry. One of the most effective employee recruitment strategies is the use of a virtual office. Here’s how modern business owners are using the service to their advantage.

Expand the pool of candidates. Talent isn’t confined to a specific city or state. A virtual office network that spans the entire country allows business owners to look outside of their business area for the best employees. This strategy is a simple numbers game. The more people who are eligible to apply, the better chance of finding the perfect fit for your business.

Attract more talented candidates. As the pool of candidates expands, the level of talent increases. But it’s not just numbers working in your favor. Remote positions are attractive in a business world that’s increasingly focused on giving employees more control. A business that offers remote employment promotes a forward-thinking culture – a culture that a talented employee could thrive in.

Hire more productive employees. Research shows that remote employees are more productive than their central-office counterparts. A Stanford Business study concluded that working remotely increases employee productivity and performance. Participants in the study increased performance by 13 percent, due in large part to taking fewer breaks and sick days. Giving remote employees access to a professional office away from company headquarters allows employees to avoid distractions and focus on their work.

Retain high-performing employees. Finding talented employees is hard, but retaining talented employees is even harder. Businesses must foster a work environment that allows employees to develop and reach their potential.

A healthy work environment doesn’t just increase employee performance. It also creates a culture of loyalty and investment in the success of the business. Providing a virtual office experience for remote employees displays trust and an investment in the happiness of those employees. That mutual respect can be the defining factor in keeping your most talented employees.

Network more efficiently. Virtual offices feature meeting rooms where business owners and employees can meet like-minded entrepreneurs and professionals. Business ideas and strategies are often discussed in these environments, but so are people. If you’re looking for new talent, professional colleagues can often point you in the right direction.

Intelligent Office is more than a typical virtual office. For businesses in a connected world, it’s an employee recruitment strategy that helps expand the possibilities for your business, including finding the employees who will help take your business to the next level.
