With remote working now considered the “new normal” thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, many entrepreneurs and business owners are looking to outsource specific roles and employ distributed teams.
Distributed teams consist of employees working from separate locations, sometimes across different cities and countries. Outsourcing involves contracting specific roles, sometimes on a monthly or per-project basis. Whatever methods and strategies are used, it is now possible and no longer frowned upon to build a successful business without a bricks-and-mortar presence, such as an office or high-street shop.
There are still advantages to having a business or virtual office address, especially when coupled with the services of a virtual office receptionist. It is possible to enjoy the benefits of both a remote working protocol & lifestyle, with many of the advantages that would normally come with renting an office and employing a full-time in-house receptionist.
