It’s a whole new world. COVID has changed everything. With this in mind, many corporations and companies are shifting from onsite to offsite, to protect their workforces and save money while relinquishing or downsizing their brick-and-mortar offices.
The truth of the matter is that people who work from home perform as good or better than those who don’t. Several studies over the past few months show productivity while working remotely from home is better than working in an office setting. On average, those who work from home spend 10 minutes less a day being unproductive, work one more day a week and are 47% more productive.
So as an employer, what’s not to like?
In 2021, 70% of those who worked from home during the pandemic report virtual meetings are less stressful, and 64% now prefer hybrid meetings according to a report by Owl Labs.
This workplace shift is actually a win/win for all concerned. As the COVID 19 pandemic continued to evolve throughout the last two years, so did the way we work. Employee expectations permanently shifted, with many choosing to resign for a better work-life balance or more flexibility in where and when they work. And with nearly 70% of full-time U.S. workers having worked remotely – and with many still doing so – many employers started adjusting their workplaces to fit a new hybrid working model.
Working From Home Can Be A Blessing In More Ways Than One
As long as you have electricity available and a Wi-Fi Internet connection, you can work from virtually anywhere these days.
Working from home no longer means being imprisoned in a walled-in home office. Take it outside with the professional guidance and craftmanship of our team at Archadeck of Akron.
Let’s be honest. When the weather is conducive, wouldn't it be nice to have a space to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine while working?
Absolutely, YES, is the answer!
Interestingly enough, we have seen tremendous interest of late. More clients are asking for outdoor spaces that can serve as outdoor offices along with having recreational uses. Structures such as porches, screened porches, and combination spaces can serve clients for work and for play. And that’s what we call outdoor bliss.
Put another way, when you’re tired of looking at the same four walls, exit outdoors with your computer and refresh your mood, reenergize your spirit and most certainly your point of “view.”
It is categorically proven that remote employees are more productive, focused and enjoy improved morale and mood – making it beneficial for you and your boss!
We Design And Build Innovative Outdoor Office Workspaces
In our estimation, an Archadeck porch or screened porch is the winning ticket. Supplied with light, a fan and power, this outdoor retreat can easily become your new workplace.
Proud to be your local outdoor workspace builder, Archadeck of Akron recommends a covered outdoor living structure that works in unison with a deck or patio. This will allow you the freedom and protection to escape a popup summer shower or the heat and humidity of the late summer afternoon sun without having to retreat indoors.
Notably, we are not a cookie cutter outdoor project builder. We don’t believe in one size or design fits all when it comes to any of our outdoor living structures.
Porches in particular have the ability to transform your home’s livability and aesthetic, in addition to becoming your new fresh air office.
We specialize in designing porches that add backyard and landscape appeal, functionality, and enhanced enjoyment, all while keeping your home’s existing architecture in mind.
Unlike other companies that treat a porch addition as an afterthought, Archadeck of Akron strives to build you a quality, customized design that appears original to your home and adds value and enjoyment for many years down the road.
