Securing Happiness In The Smallest of Ways at Work

Do you actually like what you do? Not in the broad sense of whether you’re sure that you’re in the right career path, but more of, on a daily basis. When you think about every single task that comes with your job, are there ones that give you genuine joy or happiness? And are there ones that you’re not so fond off?

It’s not often that we step back and analyze whether the smaller things of our career actually makes us happy – and maybe we actually should. There’s an on-going epidemic of committed professionals finding themselves disengaged around the world and their reasons varies because of the unique relationship that everyone has with their jobs.

A lot of us resort to thinking that a grand change is needed for us to feel engaged once again but on the contrary, there are small yet incremental steps that we can actually take to improve our jobs. And when all of them come together, they result to a major increase in our overall satisfaction and happiness. There’s really no need for us to turn everything around for us to actually see substantial results, sometimes a few adjustments on certain areas can be all that we need.

But we can’t really blame you for having this train of thought. Most of us have been told in several commencement speeches, coaching books, and other inspiring stories of fulfilling careers that if we find a job that we want, we’ll never work a day in our life – not entirely. If you look at people who are thriving in their respective careers, you’ll find that most of them didn’t just find them, they made them. At the beginning of their story there was the job and over time, they transformed it into something that truly fulfilled them.

Transforming your job from something that you do to make a living to something that really means something to you, will be hard but we’ve got to start somewhere right? Maybe you can try this extremely not complicated trick.

Try carrying a notepad at all times, for one whole week. Draw a line down the center of a page and label the first column with like and the other one dislike. Each time that you finish a task, reflect whether you had fun doing it or not. Did time fly by as you were doing it? Or did you end up procrastinating the whole way?

Does this sound silly? Kind of, but the thing is, it’s a beautiful yet simple way of doing a quick inventory of our emotions to the reality of our day or week at work. If you figure which tasks lights you up, brings happiness to your day,  gets you more energetic and creative, we get a simple road map of what we should be running toward to. Volunteer for more of the activities you enjoy. It’s not much but it’s a good starting point to understanding where we should focus majority of your time and energy in. And when you have spare time during the day, maybe you can ask a coworker for some help in trying to improve on the tasks you don’t like that much. If you think that the reason why you dread doing these activities is because you’re not that great at it, then reframe your mind and try improving your execution.

There’s nothing wrong in asking for help or looking for a small collaboration with someone from the office. In fact, today’s work landscape is promoting this ideology so much so that most serviced offices today are all about creating workspaces that cultivate partnerships. Take for example, Sales Rain’s shared spaces. Its semi-private offices feature an open layout that makes it easier for you to come over a coworker’s desk for help, not to mention that the overall layout of its offices also makes it convenient for spontaneous interactions that can lead to partnerships!

Admittedly, the advice we just gave you might not make you instantly happy about your job, but at the very least, it helps you discover what you’re really like when you’re enjoying your job – and no one else can tell you that but yourself. Let us help you find happiness in the workplace, reach out to us, and we’ll be glad to give you a private tour.

More Than Just Amenities: The Search For The Perfect Workspace

More Than Just Amenities: The Search For The Perfect Workspace

Here’s a story of a young entrepreneur searching for the perfect home for his startup and discovering a new meaning for the word amenities.

Young Andrew and his small team of professionals have finally decided to move their brainchild – a hip and modern Ad agency – from his home office to a proper workspace. And being the considerate leader he is, he gathered his team and asked each of them what they’re hoping their new office would be.

He first discussed the plan of moving out with his female members. After asking their opinions on what type of workspace would be best for them, they all expressed their hopes of having a space that would enhance their team’s overall well-being and health. It’s a must-have for them and the business as well, to succeed. And Andrew agrees with them; he noticed the trend amongst his colleagues and close friends; everyone’s becoming more aware of their health than they ever did before, and everyone is hoping that their respective bosses take good care of them.

Taking this into consideration, Andrew goes out on his own to look at specific spaces and see what serviced office providers are doing to ensure that their clients are happy and healthy. Strings of flexible modern spaces and other shared offices now carry yoga studios and on-site gyms. Others offer meditation spaces, chill-out zones, and lounge areas.

Next, he asked his male members who often worked remotely on what they can suggest. They shared their sentiments on having spaces that can increase collaboration among the team and further expand its network. Most of them hope to have a workspace that can stimulate their creativity and can support hybrid work set-up. They also suggested that it could be helpful for the startup to meet prospects, clients, and partners.

Though Andrew still hasn’t experienced what it feels like to work in a semi-private office, he knows plenty of professionals who already gave it a try – and he’s heard the same thing from them. They admit that though the open-plan office has surrounded itself with both praise and criticism, they’ve earned so much more than expected. From new colleagues and new friends to brand new projects and collaborations with fellow artists and professionals, the claims several articles and studies have made regarding the complimentary impact that a shared workspace has, seemed to be true.

After searching for possible serviced office providers that carry both seat leasing and semi-private spaces for collaborative work and private offices for concentrated activities, Andrew took some time off to ask himself the question he’s been asking himself: what would his office be like?

Being someone who enjoyed the outdoors, Andrew thought it would be nice for their next headquarters to allow him and his team to connect with nature. He’s had his first-hand experience of the positive benefits brought upon by exposure to green space, and with his female employees’ concern for their overall well-being, nature can be of great help in ensuring that his team stays healthy and happy.

After visiting several serviced offices and trying them out for himself, Andrew realized that the word “amenities” in office spaces now carries a vastly different meaning to both them, the workers, and the providers.

Contemplating on the sentiments his team had shared with him and the phenomenon he has observed among professionally managed serviced offices, workplace amenities now serve a meaningful purpose. Providers aren’t just adding them to add an edge to their brand; they’re expanding their services to suit their partners better.

Serviced office providers like Sales Rain and professionals like Andrew and his team view office amenities as helping tools for a successful career.

Talk to us today, and we’ll help you gain access to meaningful amenities!

Colors of Productivity and Hues as Determinants of Employee Behavior

From the color found in logos and company branding down to those found in office walls and cubicles, picking colors isn’t only based on color theories or personal preference. In fact, there’s a science behind them; what they mean and how they actually stimulate our behavior and emotions.

Defined as ‘the study of hues as a determinant of human behavior’, Color Psychology is widely used in various disciplines. They are used in influencing a person’s perception to underlying aspects such as the taste of food and other goods or services. In addition to this, marketers also use it in terms of branding.

Yet there seemed to be a misconception that each color invoke the same feelings from one person to another. The effects differ from one another and factors such as age, gender as well as culture affect how a person perceives a color.

Painting it Productive

Improving Productivity with ColorsThough the effect of each color has different meaning from one person to another, Color Psychologist Angela Wright said that there are four primary psychological colors; red, blue, yellow and green.

The color Red is a powerful color that invokes strong emotion and passion. It is a stimulating color that increases your heart rate and pulse. Red is great for those who engage in tasks involving physical activity and those who aren’t easily bothered by stressful situations.

Opposite of Red, the color Blue is a soothing color that aids concentration and calms minds. It is universally known as an excellent color for increasing productivity and is usually used as a base color inside offices paired with other hues as accents.

Radiating energy and positivity, Yellow is used to uplift emotions and confidence levels. Seen as the strongest psychological color, it stimulates creativity and helps get your creative juices flowing.

Best for those who work long hours, especially call centers and outsourcing agents, Green harmonizes and helps keep calm. The color does not strain eyes and is the perfect balance among the primary colors. It is helpful in particular situations like when you are feeling overwhelmed by all the tasks you need to accomplish.

Angela Wright also adds that picking color alone isn’t enough, finding the right intensity and saturation is the key for a color to stimulate a person’s behavior. Pick the appropriate color for your call center workplace or private office, then choose a balanced brightness that will improve your productivity levels. You can also create color combinations so that each individual in your office can benefit from it as well.

Improving Productivity with Colors

The rest of the world is starting to recognize the importance of colors in general office designs which further leads to productivity and efficiency. Modern serviced offices are now being designed with creativity and collaboration in mind. Closed office layouts are now being inverted to open office floor plans to aid in achieving better communication among employees. Startups who used to nestle themselves in their respective homes and garages are moving to flexible offices for lease, hoping that this type of setup can improve their work ethic. Moreover, the amenities and overall ambiance of this type of workspaces have been observed to increase the happiness of employees.

Virtual Office Plans for The Digital Nomads of Today’s Workforce

Nomads of the First Century

The term nomad was first heard in the early years of civilization as groups of people or communities who move from place to place instead of settling down in one. Unlike migration, major and permanent move from one location to another, nomadic people annually and occasionally return to their original locations. Nomads would usually be hunter-gatherers, pastoral or those who raise herds, and peripatetic or those who offer trade wherever they go. Since then, they have evolved.

Societal developments caused a change in their lifestyle and nomadism has then become a minority lifestyle. But for this young generation, a new kind of nomads have developed, instilled in them is the same culture of moving from one location to another in order to make a living.

Digital Nomads

Defined by Wikipedia as individuals who use telecommunication technologies to earn a living and, more generally, conduct their life in a nomadic manner, ” Digital Nomads” are those who work remotely from home, coffee shops, or public libraries to accomplish tasks and goals that traditionally takes place in a single stationary workplace. More and more people want to break away from the 9-to-5 working hours and be able to go on an adventure. This generations’ workforce sees freedom as the ability to travel the world while being able to live and work from anywhere; which is the ultimate goal. Digital nomads are distinct in the sense that they are not solely about changing location constantly but rather want to rid of the restrictions, time, and place given when it comes to their working environment.

Versatility

With the objectives of developing professionally in their chosen industry and having the freedom to travel aimlessly, digital nomads practice versatility and mobility. It is necessary for them to have the ability to work anywhere in the world and to be able to transfer from one place or another. Nomads could be sipping cappuccino at a nearby coffee shop as they work, be in France the next day, and still earn.

Finding a temporary workspace equipped with all the facilities a standard office can offer and a stable internet connection in a foreign country is so much easier than one could imagine; and as the numbers of remote workers grow, virtual offices rose. These types of offices are workspaces that you can take advantage of for short or long-term use. First seen in the US, the sudden boom of this market resulted in several serviced office providers offering this type of office solution globally.

Call Center Productivity & Flexible Serviced Office Design

At this day and age, we have learned to acknowledge the fact that good design has enough power to influence the way we think and behave. And as today’s call center businesses finally see the value of employees truly engaged in their work – a good example of encouraging certain patterns of thought and behavior – they finally realized that maybe they should be paying more attention to their overall office design.

Environmental psychologists are mavens of design for the scientific world. They are the ones who concentrate their attention to sensory experiences, psychosocial factors, psychological drives, and how it influences the effects of being in one space or another. A large number of environmental psychologists are moving what early scientist have learned about how humans experience space into design practice where it can help make people’s lives better.

Among the factors that they focus on is how design affects one’s mood. Through a series of psychological chain reactions, mood influences worker engagement – meaning, a positive state of mind results in enhanced levels of engagement and productivity. So in order to create engaging environments, BPO organizations need to design a workplace that emits positive mood.

Call center employees who work in offices as such convey to their colleagues that their employers value their presence in the team and the contribution that they make to their company – and the good feeling they get from being respected enhances their engagement. Admittedly, it’s easy to come up with mission and vision statements that go on such great lengths to discuss how much professionals are prized by those handing them their paychecks; so instead of paying attention into these proclamations, they focus on interpreting the messages sent by the environment they are placed in. BPO organizations spend tons of their budget on their respective call center workspaces. Hence, it’s no surprise that what they are communicating to the members of the workforce carry more weight than easily generated passages.

Workspaces indicate respect for its users when it supports them as they do their jobs – employees want to do their work well and this creates a big influence in one’s self-identity.

Generally speaking, designers speak to the employees who will work in that space regarding their jobs and how it can be designed in such a way that would optimize their performance. Unfortunately, those offices built out of the said conversations often don’t align. More often than not, it gets designed to look good – to resemble that one workspace seen by the CEO from some magazine spread.

Instead of copying some other aesthetically pleasing space, the main aim of its design should be to be able to help workers do well in contributing to their respective companies. Most workers need acoustical focus in accomplishing certain tasks – a feature that’s hard to achieve in a field of cubicles or amongst a sea of faces sitting at long tables.

One good idea is harnessing the power of color. Whenever people are doing tasks that require a lot of mental work, their environment should be relaxing, and when work is relatively easy, energizing spaces are needed. Individuals feel relaxed around colors that aren’t very saturated but are relatively bright. A moderate visual complexity works best – meaning that space should only have few colors and patterns.

Another suggestion is for call center organizations to leave enough room for their employees to control both their environment and work day. Workers should have a say on the lighting and temperature of their workplace. In addition to this, professionals value companies that allows them to utilize a variety of workspaces depending on their needs.

The design has enough power to enhance an employee’s productivity. Moreover, sincere spaces that reflect their needs and concerns is something that today’s workforce values. One good example of this is the growing number of professionally managed offices such as call center seat leasing and flexible private offices. Though the movement admittedly has gained a lot of critics, there’s no denying that modern professionals lean towards work conditions that help them reach their goals. In addition to this, it gives ample room for recreational activities so that they can take good care of their personal lives too. These are the types of environments that keep them engaged.

And in case you’re in search of a new home that would be beneficial to your team, talk to us today, and we’ll show you a few engaging serviced offices.

Plug and Play Workspace: Startups Made Easier With Seat Leasing

Business is a gamble.

Placing your faith in the implementation of an idea – that you most likely formed through a drunken conversation with your friends – and hoping that it’ll put food in your stomach and a roof over your head, is a gamble.

But there’s just something exhilarating and noble in starting something from scratch.

There’s the excitement of creating a to-do list; building revenue models, marketing languages and the technologies needed for it to work. Endless hours would be spent on how this idea would be implemented, how it would work and how it would be advantageous to everyone. But as discussions move to more concrete details and as challenges start to show up, the excitement grows weaker.

Things get harder and harder as you and your team make sure that the idea doesn’t die.

More and more concerns would arise and you would find yourself wondering why you ever thought this was going to work, yet you’d remind yourself of the potential benefits it could give and hold on to that enthusiasm you first had.

With so much frustration, you toil through the least exciting parts of the project. This phase is a necessary evil to break away from half-baked plans – it’s the final chance of getting something done and ensuring that there’s a tangible result to all of our efforts.

And now that you’ve covered the basics, it’s time to get the ball rolling.

Kickstarting and Startups Made Easier

Though establishing a business isn’t easy, a significant growth among startups have been observed in the last couple of years. Teams of all kinds, sizes and specializations manage to become fully operational despite having low resources and even manpower.

Operating a startup is now made easier with the advancements in technology and the flexible office solutions offered today. In addition to this, outsourcing firms have dominated the industry. Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) firms offer back office outsourcing, internal business functions as well as office space solutions – all of which provide a helping hand to those who want to start a brand new site or bootstrap their first enterprise.

The most known service offered by outsourcing firms is its office space solutions widely known as Seat Leasing.

It allows its clients to lease the number of seats they need, exactly when they need it with their ‘plug-and-play’ facilities.

Seat Leasing give startups numerous advantages other else than competitive offices at an affordable rate.

In addition to this, it also lessens waste on expenses from unused office space. A client can lease one seat for the first 6 months and expand to leasing a whole floor.

Most seat leasing providers can also be found in major cities of the country like Mandaluyong, Ortigas, Makati and Quezon City – making businesses more accessible to clients and employees as well.

 

Overcoming Small Business Hurdles as an Entrepreneur

Overcoming Small Business Hurdles as an Entrepreneur

Overcoming Small Business Hurdles as an Entrepreneur

Overcoming Small Business Hurdles as an Entrepreneur

Making the big jump from a regular employee to a my-own-boss small business owner is gratifying. You’ve finally overpowered your biggest fear of taking risks, you’ve freed yourself of the usual 9-to-5 work hour, and you’re finally making your dreams come true, slowly but surely.

But another thing we need to remember about being an entrepreneur is that it is as fulfilling as challenging. With the prediction that within five years, half of all businesses will fail, and only thirty percent of them will make it for ten years, many small business owners like yourself face three challenges or business hurdles common among several startups of different niches and industries: funding, knowledge, and fear of failure.

Funding

Funding and managing one’s finances is – and will always be – a newbie’s number one challenge from the day they decided to walk away from their desk job. Whether you started the business as a means of gaining financial independence, wanting to be your own boss, or realizing your dream of turning your passion into a full-time career, all startups need good funding and financing for it to be established and to maintain sustainable growth, regardless of its nature.

A quarter of a thousand young entrepreneurs admit that money remains one of their biggest challenges, and most of the time, these new business owners turn to their family or friends for help. Luckily, there are now other alternatives aside from asking for the hand of those close to us. Crowdfunding has become a powerful tool for startups, and specific local governments have started offering grants for micro-entrepreneurs who qualify for their requirements. If you think your startup could use a little help to stabilize your operations further and overcome small business hurdles, you can get in touch with your municipal government for any grants. Moreover, in terms of financing, there are also several ways you can ensure that your limited resource is being put into sound investments. For example, instead of spending a lot on a new office, you have the option to settle for a serviced office depending on what you think your business needs. If you simply want to give your startup a proper business address, you can also try virtual offices, and should you believe that it’s time to give your brainchild a space of your own, you can lease a small private office.

Knowledge

Know-how comes as the second most common hurdle that young entrepreneurs face. Admittedly, most SMEs today are led by people following their passions, not by those with business expertise. And because of this, owners – and yourself included – can’t help but feel insecure that they don’t exactly have what it takes to ensure the success of their own business.

But with the growing number of professionals carving their own career paths, it’s now easier for your kind to share knowledge and stories among one another.  Serviced offices, like Sales Rain, cultivate creative and supportive communities of freelancers and young entrepreneurs, wherein they are free to mentor and support one another as they go through the different business hurdles of independent working.

Fear of Failure

Lastly, and perhaps a challenge that every one of us goes through each day, is the fear of failure. With the growing high cost of living and increasing pressure amongst millennials to have successful careers, the stakes became higher, leaving small business owners more afraid of making mistakes than before. But as you go through the journey of maintaining your startup, you’ll soon realize that failure poses an opportunity for improvement. Not just for your business, but your personal skills as well. Having a community or peer group like the one we mentioned above helps you see the silver lining of challenging times.

Today’s work landscape has opened further for those who want to pave their own roads towards a fulfilling career. By continuously expanding your network and finding new solutions to the hurdles you face, you’ll earn a new tool every day in your journey.

Talk to Sales Rain today, and we’ll help you find new ways to overcome all these business hurdles!

COVID19 pandemic has caused a tremendous impact on the traditional work environment and raised a significant need to implement alternative arrangements in catering to today’s new set of requirements. Because of the challenges presented by travel and mobility restrictions, global leaders have been innovating workable solutions to keep operations running without sacrificing the safety of their members. 

And as the pandemic situation improves and businesses transition to the new normal, it is without a doubt that we need more flexibility in workspaces. 

Several months after the nationwide lockdown, many startup enterprises and call center companies have switched to serviced offices. With efforts to sustain business productivity amidst a global pandemic, companies are now looking for versatility and affordability among office spaces.

The Emerging Modern Trends

The current health crisis has changed the previous workplace trends, and many new ones have surfaced as we strive to stay competitive in today’s time. Let us take a look at these emerging modern trends in the country’s top call center serviced offices:

Smart Offices

It is no surprise that transforming your office into a smart one can make a world of difference in the post-COVID era. As the current health situation continues to present uncertainties, many people have become more dependent on artificial intelligence and technology that reduces the risk of infection in the workplace. 

During the pandemic, the work environment has been classified as one of the high-risk areas to spread the COVID19 virus because of the high volume face-to-face interactions and frequently touched surfaces. With this, many serviced offices have considered ‘touchless technology’ as an essential tool in keeping their facilities safe and secured at all times. Several providers have started installing modern trends such as sensor devices, automated entry systems, and security controls. Moreover, touchless temperature and ID scanners, disinfecting stations, voice command machines, and lighting fixtures have contributed significantly to a healthier and more productive place of work where employees can perform their tasks safer and faster. In a smart office space where almost everything is accessible, not only will you be able to perform better, but it can also make your work management easier.

Health and Well-being

During the early months of the pandemic, serviced office providers have doubled their efforts in creating a healthy place of work to secure safety among its members and comply with government guidelines. They began to place disinfecting stations inside and outside of its premises while implementing proper working procedures. Not only that, they have strengthened their protocols to ensure the required distance between employees to lower health risks.

Today, as the COVID19 situation improves, many of these providers are investing more in improving their workspaces – from redesigning space layout to promoting productivity through a wide range of amenities. Fully-serviced environments that are complete with proper air ventilation, natural sunlight, breakout rooms, and even applying biophilic office designs can help boost members’ well-being.

Multi-functional Work Areas

As businesses began to see that achieving optimal performance from their members requires distinct parameters, providing them with varieties of modern trends in working environments has become their top priority. For a company to grow and remain competitive, employees have to be satisfied with the kind of workspace they come into every single day. With this in mind, various space providers have been utilizing their existing facilities to develop more versatile work areas for different activities such as project meetings, company events, training, and even relaxation like pantry areas or cafe lounges.

Our traditional way of working will continue to change and evolve as we navigate the post-COVID19 era. Let us help you find the perfect fit for your requirements by getting in touch with us!

Today, the BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) sector is among the fastest-growing and most successful industries in the country, and it is said to be the powerful force that drives the Philippine economy. The BPO industry has contributed largely to employment generation, export growth, the rise of telecommunication businesses, and even real estate developments.

And as call centers expand nationwide, there is even greater demand for commercial infrastructures such as offices and multifunctional workspaces.

This arrangement is favorable among call center companies as it offers various innovative business and office space solutions that are both cost-effective and functional. Typically, it comes complete with fully furnished offices equipped with workstations, computers, maintenance, admin & IT support, even outsourcing services, and the list goes on. These long-standing requirements that a traditional working environment could not offer are now made more flexible and affordable with seat leasing. 

Now, what makes Seat leasing beneficial for BPO Call Centers? 

BENEFITS

Cost-Effectiveness

Many businesses often have a hard time setting up an office because of the upfront capital needed for construction, furnishing, IT Equipment, and many other operational expenses. When companies lease or purchase an office, receiving separate monthly bills for utilities, electricity, and water apart from the actual rental payment can make it even more inconvenient. Not only that, registering a business takes time and presents a huge amount of paperwork. 

Seat leasing serves a great alternative for all types of businesses and sizes, whether it’s a startup BPO that has a limited budget in building their own office or an established call center company that cannot afford to wait several months for a business expansion. Seat providers usually offer fully furnished workspaces saving them from the need to buy their own equipment. Moreover, they have the freedom to lease only the number of seats for as long as they need and start their operations immediately without worrying about the amenities.

Flexibility

Seat Leasing offers customizable lease agreements that are entirely based on clients’ specific needs and personal preferences. From specifying the length of commitment, identifying working hours, designing office layout, and choosing which services to procure, all these requirements are possible with leasing seats than renting a traditional space.

Even more so, BPO call center companies can maximize their business efficiency and productivity as most seat leasing providers operate 24 hours a day and are often accessible during weekends, even holidays. With this type of arrangement, they can worry less about expanding their business as scalability is one of seat leasing’s core offerings. 

Variety of Workspaces

It does not end with flexible lease term agreements and plug-and-play offices. Seat leasing deals offer not only the workstations, partitions, and basic equipment a call center agent needs but also a wide array of amenities ranging from shared desks, enclosed offices, conference rooms, business lounges, and conventional areas where agents can work according to their needs. 

Complete Package

Most BPO call center companies benefit from seat leasing because it offers all-inclusive and ready-to-use deals obliterating the inconvenience and lengthy process of establishing an office of their own. From fully functioning offices equipped with high-end PCs, reliable internet connection, call center software, and VoIP solutions to well-ventilated workspaces, clients can start their operations smoothly.
