Make your Workspace adapt to your business plan and not the other way around.

Your Office Agent’s online resource of 40,000 drop in and long term workspaces in over 3,000 locations can now be linked into the space needs of corporations themselves. The network of locations includes the fastest growing and most comprehensive listing of executive suite, cowork, telework, meeting room, collaborative and third place working solutions available anywhere.

The specialist online workspace portal is introducing these services in response to the biggest challenges facing corporations today: the need to reduce costs and increase flexibility in both Workforce and Workplace. Until now it was difficult for corporations to increase worker productivity, efficiency and well-being while decreasing personnel and real estate costs. The team at Your Office Agent believes that their agile workplace solutions will revolutionize the facility industry by achieving the following for corporations of all sizes:

  •     Minimize real estate portfolios.
  •     Implement a mobile workforce strategy.
  •     Eliminate excess real estate or mothballed space.

Your Office Agent’s resources allow corporations to align fiscal objectives and workforce productivity with real estate, workplace and agile working needs. With new technologies empowering employees to work virtually and remotely, and collaborate securely from anywhere, the cost of maintaining and operating the workplace can decrease, while productivity increases. Indeed, both HR and Admin costs have been shown to decrease, along with facilities costs, as employees become more mobile, while 60% of reduced commute time is typically used by employees for work.

Technology, sensors and analytics are applied to quantitatively determine a company’s specific officing requirement. Smart working techniques, such as hot desking, teleworking, hoteling, reverse hoteling, etc. are used to reduce the workspace that each employee needs by up to 50%. Your Office Agent also partners with the leading space efficiency implementers in this industry to make this agile working process seamless. The most important of these partners is Satellite Telework Centers, the only automated telework center network in the world. These telework centers are ideally positioned to be implemented with little capital expenditure, no balance sheet liability and an ongoing cost that is typically less than companies can operate at themselves. Together, Your Office Agent and Satellite can set up fully automated, fully systemized, secure offsite workspace centers of any size to fit a mobile and dispersed workforce -- or provide flexible seats at existing ones. Satellite is able to offer 24/7 access for each site’s members through its automated systems and technology, reducing commutes and CO2 emissions, while making space available near workers’ homes on the schedules they need. For many workers who have no appropriate space at home, these centers make teleworking, and its cost-saving, productivity and environmental benefits, possible.

As corporations globalize, the challenges of implementing a mobile workforce strategy can also be addressed with a new offering from the specialist team. Your Office Agent’s solutions solve the worker productivity and IT security needs by offering centers throughout the world with plug in, collaborative and stand alone spaces, allowing employees to use their own laptops, hardware and security software. A tailored solution is incorporated using Your Office Agent’s online network of 40,000 drop in spaces to map workforce needs to all available workplace inventories. Business analytics is now merged with a powerful, flexible real estate platform to align corporate initiatives with the perfect officing solutions.

The result of aligning a company’s business plan with their facility plan will inevitably be a significant reduction in space needs and increase in excess corporate space. Again, YOA can help turn this into revenue rather than cost by offering corporations a resource to eliminate excess real estate or mothballed space by helping incorporate a managed space model for other companies to rent or collaborate on a flexible basis.

The old brick and mortar outdated concept of low value commercial real estate advice and corporate large office solutions are gone, and companies of tomorrow need to have solutions available today. With today’s technologies and productivity tools workers can collaborate in real time, address business initiatives and move those initiatives to completion in workspaces that promote a better quality of life and allow for increased productivity. Your Office Agent is uniquely positioned to collaboratively harness the needs of corporations, real estate firms, coworking companies and individuals into a shared platform to reduce costs and find the best workspace solutions.
