Lighting often goes unnoticed unless it’s too bright or too dim, yet it plays a vital role in our work environment and productivity. It affects mood, performance, comfort, and even overall health and well-being. This post explores the importance of good lighting in boosting productivity.
Enhances Mood and Energy
Good lighting can significantly impact a person’s mood and energy. A well-lit workspace often feels vibrant and motivates people to be more active. Natural light exposure has even been linked to an increase in serotonin production, the hormone associated with mood-boosting and keeping one’s spirits high. A brighter mood invariably translates to higher productivity.
Reduces Eye Strain and Fatigue
Working in a poorly lit environment can cause eye strain, headaches, fatigue, and a decrease in focus and concentration – all factors that decrease productivity. Good lighting conditions make it easier to see and focus without straining the eyes, thus allowing for longer periods of effective work.
Improves Sleep Quality
Exposure to natural light during the day and darkness at night helps regulate the body’s natural circadian rhythm, promoting better sleep quality. As restful sleep is linked to improved cognitive function, mood, and energy levels, good lighting indirectly impacts productivity.
Encourages Positive Interaction
Lighting can influence how we perceive our environment and interact with others within it. A well-lit workspace can encourage communication and collaboration, which can foster a more productive and efficient work environment.
Good lighting improves visibility, reducing the risk of accidents that can occur due to poor lighting. This is particularly relevant in physical workspaces where safety is paramount.
This is a critical yet often overlooked factor in creating a productive work environment. As you design your workspace, be it a home office or a shared office solution like those at Work Webb, consider your environment carefully. Make use of natural light where possible and supplement with appropriate artificial lighting to ensure a bright, energized, and productive workspace.
The concept of work and the traditional office environment has seen a major shift over the years. Today, entrepreneurs, freelancers, and businesses, both large and small, are increasingly turning to shared office solutions. The appeal is clear: affordability, flexibility, and access to a range of resources. But what about providers that offer multiple locations? Let’s dive into why choosing a shared office solution with multiple locations can be the strategic choice your business needs.
Expansive Business Reach
One of the greatest advantages of a shared office solution with multiple locations is the possibility of expanding your business’s geographic reach. Need to meet a client in a different city? No problem. Want to explore a new market area? Easy. Multiple locations give you the flexibility to conduct business where it matters most without the commitment of long-term leases in various cities.
Flexibility and Convenience
With multiple locations at your disposal, you can choose to work wherever is most convenient for you on any given day. This flexibility can greatly enhance work-life balance, reduce commute times, and even allow you to schedule meetings in the most convenient location for all attendees.
Professional Image Across the Board
When you choose a shared office provider with multiple locations, you’re able to project a professional image no matter where you are. Each location offers well-equipped, beautifully furnished spaces that are bound to impress clients and partners alike.
Each shared office location has its unique community of businesses and professionals. By having access to multiple sites, you’re not only expanding your business reach but also your network. This increased exposure can lead to collaborative opportunities, partnerships, and, potentially, new customers.
Consistent Service Quality
When you choose a shared office provider with multiple locations, like Work Webb, you can expect consistent quality and service across the board. Regardless of where you are, you’ll have access to high-speed internet, state-of-the-art office equipment, and other essential amenities that help your business function smoothly.
In an increasingly interconnected world, having a business presence in multiple locations can be a major competitive advantage. Shared office solutions with multiple locations offer businesses the flexibility, convenience, and professional image they need to thrive in today’s fast-paced business environment. Whether you’re a freelancer looking to expand your client base, a startup seeking new markets, or a corporation accommodating a diverse workforce, multi-location shared office spaces can be the strategic choice that propels your business forward.

As the legal landscape evolves, law firms constantly seek new ways to optimize their practices, increase efficiency, and reduce costs. One solution gaining popularity is shared office spaces. This blog will explore the numerous benefits of shared office spaces for law firms and how they can contribute to your firm’s success.
Shared office spaces offer law firms a more cost-effective alternative to traditional offices. By sharing the area and its associated costs, such as rent, utilities, and maintenance, firms can save considerable money. This allows them to allocate resources to more pressing needs, such as hiring additional staff or investing in new technology.
Flexible Lease Terms
Many shared office spaces offer flexible lease terms, allowing law firms to adjust their tenancy according to their needs. This flexibility is particularly beneficial for growing firms or those experiencing fluctuations in their caseloads, as they can easily scale their office space up or down as required.
Shared office spaces often house professionals from various industries, creating a rich networking environment. Law firms can benefit from this by establishing connections with other businesses and fostering relationships that may lead to referrals, collaborations, or even new clients.
Access to State-of-the-Art Facilities
Most shared office spaces provide access to well-equipped meeting rooms, conference facilities, and state-of-the-art technology. This enables law firms to make a professional impression on clients and other legal professionals without incurring the costs of maintaining such facilities in a private office.
The communal environment of shared law office spaces can positively impact productivity. By working alongside other professionals, law firm employees may feel more motivated and inspired to perform at their best. Additionally, many shared office spaces offer a variety of workspaces, from private offices to open-plan areas, allowing individuals to choose the environment best suited to their work style.
Streamlined Administrative Services
Shared office spaces often provide various administrative services, such as receptionists, mail handling, and phone answering. This allows law firms to focus on their core legal work without hiring additional administrative staff or managing these tasks themselves.
A shared law office space fosters a collaborative atmosphere where professionals can exchange ideas, share knowledge, and learn from one another. This can lead to innovative solutions and creative problem-solving for law firms, giving them a competitive edge in the legal industry.
By embracing this new way of working, law firms can optimize their practices, enhance productivity, and stay competitive in the ever-changing legal landscape. Work Webb, located in Daytona Beach, Florida, offers law office share services. Visit our website to learn more, and call us to schedule a tour.

Rented conference rooms are a handy option for remote workers who don’t have access to a traditional office. They provide a temporary solution for an ongoing issue. They will likely help you make a more professional, long-lasting impression on your client than you ever would if you met at your local Starbucks. But how do you find and set up a rented conference for success?
Researching before you need a conference room is critical to preparing for the big client meeting to determine your required options.
It would help if you lined up all the available rentals in your area (or your client’s neighborhood) and considered your options. Location and available (preferably free) parking spaces near the building are crucial. The last thing you want is for your client to walk half a mile because the only available parking spots were found six blocks away. The neighborhood where the rental is located should also be safe because a sketchy peripheral zone does not leave a good first impression, even if you save a few bucks along the way.
It is also important the conference room comes with the office equipment you need. A stable and robust Internet connection and a whiteboard with matching markers might come in handy, so decide the items you need and look for these features when browsing the long list of meeting rooms up for rent.
Learn the Layout
Once you’ve settled on the conference room of your choice, explore the building inside and find out as much about it as possible. Get to know where the bathrooms are located, find out the position of the communal kitchen, and make sure you know where you can get a coffee. Once your clients arrive, it’s helpful to give off an air of confidence and act as if you’ve always done business at the location.
Work Webb provides professional conference rooms for rent in various options to suit most business needs. Visit our website to see what our Happy Clients say about this service, and call us today to schedule a tour.

The pandemic has transformed how we work and our expectations about work. There is a new awareness of how we work best— individually and collectively. This awareness is shaping new expectations about the physical workplace and how we manage its spaces. In addition, the new post-pandemic workplace must provide better work experiences and this means options.
Create places to work, reflect, and socialize in your office.
Rethink breakrooms and lobbies as places where employees can go to collaborate and even take a break from the screen. Telling your staff that they can take a break when needed and having space to do that will make them feel better about taking breaks when needed.
Revamp the Work Schedule.
Working from home is not for everyone, and by now, you can probably identify the workers that thrive in this setting and who do not. By revamping the work schedule to fit the individual needs of your staff, you will keep productivity and mental health positive. Hybrid is here to stay as well, so find a coworking space that has an option that fits your budget and schedule so your employees can work on their schedule when needed.
Being with other people is now an amenity.
As will all amenities, not everyone needs them to be productive. Coffee stations are critical to some employees, but not all. The same can be said for being with other people for work. With hybrid schedules, work from home, or a shared office solution, you can offer options to your staff to provide a better work experience where they individually thrive.
Post-pandemic is an excellent opportunity to create a new people-focused work experience that builds relationships and trust, fosters well-being, and promotes inclusion and equity. So hold a meeting with your team to get honest feedback on improving the work experience.

The hybrid office is where employees have the option to work from home, in a remote location, or in the office. This option is becoming popular. It offers employees the flexibility to work from home when needed and the opportunity to collaborate with co-workers in the office. Several factors are driving the move to the hybrid office, including the increasing popularity of remote work and the need for businesses to be more flexible and accommodating to employees.
The Hybrid Office Started Before COVID
During the pandemic, employees worked from home. COVID did not start the work-from-home trend. In 2017, FlexJobs and Global Workplace Analytics reported that between 2005 and 2015, telecommuting half-time or more increased by 115%. The United States Census Bureau released this infographic in 2013. This graphic states that advances in technology contributed to the increase of remote workers and gave a breakdown of the industries of these home-based workers. Employers learned during the pandemic was remote workers performed as well as on-site employees. Staff now want to continue this work arrangement. Some employers are considering a hybrid work schedule to keep the employees happy.
Employees Have a New “Worth It” Equation
According to a study conducted by Microsoft COVID has reshaped the priorities of the workforce. This study reported that employees are prioritizing their health and wellbeing, acting on this concept. Fancy offices and free lunches are not the perks employees look for from a job any longer. Employees want a work-life balance – period. The best leaders will create a culture that embraces flexibility and prioritizes employee wellbeing.
The Big Compromise
Managers feel stuck between employee demands and leadership’s expectations on returning to the office full-time. A compromise will need to be made in some corporations. The younger generations are more opt to quit a job if they feel that their wellbeing is not as valued as their work performance, while older generations will be okay with the complete return to the office.
This is where the hybrid schedule comes into play. Having a flexible schedule might be the answer to making both managers and leadership happy. If employers use the right technology and communicate clearly, a hybrid environment can fit most needs. There is no one size fits all approach, but with co-working spaces set to double by 2023 most industries have the resources to create a productive work environment to meet their employees’ needs.
If you are looking for a shared office solution for your hybrid work schedule, or need a desk for the day as a remote worker to increase your productivity, consider Work Webb. We have two locations and a variety of options to suit most needs. Call us to schedule a tour.

While companies are preparing to bring their staff back into the office, some consider a hybrid work schedule as the new norm. This arrangement allows the employees to continue to work remotely while lowering the business’s overhead costs, but it does come with challenges. But how is this new schedule implemented at no expense to their employee experience?
The specifics must be planned out for your individual business needs, and if done correctly, a hybrid work schedule can be a win-win for everyone.
Here are a few common problems and solutions.
Misalignment between in-office and remote employees
Hybrid working can create a disconnect between employees working in the office and those not. One of the main appeals of hybrid is the balance between independence and collaboration, and you need to make sure your hybrid working arrangement encourages both.
One way to overcome this problem is to set specific days for in-office work and make those days focus on collaboration. In contrast, the days when everyone’s working from home are reserved for more independent work, which doesn’t require (as much) in-person interaction.
Depending on how your company intends to balance this new schedule, keeping a dedicated office could waste resources. With a hybrid work schedule, you will need some office space.
One of your best options is probably a coworking office space or another company to share it with.
It makes sense that remote employees aren’t entitled to reimbursement of travel expenses and should instead be compensated for using their own internet and electricity. But how do you balance that in a hybrid setting?
Offer the employees the choice and let them know of the tradeoffs and/or changes to their benefits in advance. They can then decide on what is best for them.
Managing the Employee Experience
A hybrid schedule is a big disrupter in traditional office settings. Company culture is experienced much differently for employees mainly working in the office versus those working remotely. This is especially relevant for new employees who need to get onboarded in a remote or hybrid setting.
Strive to keep the experience as balanced as possible and remember to offer everyone the choice. Plan company events with hybrid top of mind, potentially in combination with more in-person get-togethers, and ask other companies what they do on this issue.
Work Webb can assist you to implement a hybrid work schedule with its menu of options. We have two locations, Daytona Beach and Melbourne, Florida, with dedicated parking and conveniently located to restaurants. Read what our happy clients have to say about our services and call us to schedule a tour.
This year employees expect to have more flexible work options, and one option is a hybrid work schedule. A hybrid work schedule includes having employees work from home remotely, in the office exclusively, or a mix of both in-house and remote. Hybrid work uses digital tools to support interaction between in-person and remote participants, and these tools must facilitate participation, collaboration, and communication to be successful. Here are some benefits of implementing a hybrid work schedule for your employees:
A hybrid work schedule can offer flexibility and empower employees to utilize their strengths, boosting productivity.
Boost employee satisfaction and culture
The attractiveness of hybrid work is employees choose when and where to work. This allows employees to focus on getting work done peacefully and without being disturbed or distracted.
Better work relationships
Virtual meetings can play too significant a role in hybrid work. Providing a mix of in-person and virtual meetings tailored to team members’ habits and needs will build better working relationships.
Improved mental health
Fully remote work reduces human interaction, adversely affecting your employees’ mental state and it’s essential to create opportunities that optimize communication and foster mental well-being. The work-life fit is a vital aspect of any healthy working environment. And hybrid work enables each employee to fit their work and life together in a way that works for them.
The hybrid work model has the potential to take your organization to a new level of productivity. Finding a shared office solution in your area can assist you in finding the perfect temporary office space for your hybrid work needs. Call us today for more information or schedule a tour at one of our locations.

When companies worldwide sent their employees home to work virtually due to COVID-19, remote work had a big moment. What became apparent was that employees could be productive and focused when not in the office—in many cases, even more so. As a result, employers everywhere began to understand that remote work works.
Here are some benefits to working remotely:
Better Work-Life Balance
Remote jobs come with adaptable schedules, which means that workers can start and end their day as they choose, as long as their work is complete.
Companies —like Twitter, Square, Shopify, and Facebook, to name just a few—have seen long-term costs savings by having employees working remotely.
Increased Productivity and Performance
Remote working usually leads to fewer interruptions, fewer office politics, a quieter noise level, and fewer meetings. Fewer distractions lead to increased productivity—a massive benefit for both employees and employers alike.
A Happier, Healthier Work Life
Remote, flexible workers tend to be happier and more loyal employees, in part because it has been shown to lower stress, provide more time for hobbies and interests, and improve personal relationships, among other things.
A shared office solution like Work Webb has helped several companies adapt to working remotely. We have a variety of options to choose from that fit most needs. Call us today to schedule a tour and answer any questions. Visit our website to see what our happy tenants have to say about our services.

We all know of famous companies that started in home garages like Amazon and Microsoft. This option worked for them because shared office solutions were not as prevalent as in today’s corporate environment. But now, there are ways to help you scale your business from working from home to leasing a corporate space. If you have thought about utilizing a shared office solution to grow your business but are not quite sure how this is the blog post for you. This post will discuss some of our options and give examples of how Work Webb can help build your business.
Here are some plans available during regular business hours as described on our website:
Our Basic Plan is excellent to use when you work from home but do not want to use your home address. Clients get the use of a physical address, directory listing, and mail service. Using this option will keep some distance from unwanted solicitors and your home address private. Please note, mail service does not include mail forwarding. Your mail can be picked up during regular business hours.
As your business grows, working from home may become too difficult and this option is practical when you require a physical address and unlimited access to a co-working space. With this plan, you receive mail service, directory listing, a desk in our co-working space, or eight hours of scheduled conference room or private desk space per month. This flexibility is a nice option for when you need to take a private meeting. The conference room and designated office must be scheduled in advance and is subject to availability.
Banker’s Hours Plan
As your business scales, you may not only want to work outside of the house but have the same desk every day you go to the office. The Banker’s Hours Plan includes the use of a physical address, directory listing, mail service, unlimited use of the common areas, and a “dedicated” desk during business hours.
No matter your industry, Work Webb can help build your business with our selection of options in two convenient locations. If you have additional questions or want to schedule a tour, please call us. Wisit our Happy Clients page to see what our clients have to say about using Work Webb.
Here at Work Webb, our directories contain some talented professionals, and we are starting a blog series to highlight them. Our inaugural post is about Shawn E. Brown Insurance.
Shawn E. Brown Insurance is an Independent Insurance Brokerage servicing all of Florida, with satellite offices in Melbourne and Daytona Beach’s beautiful downtown district. They work with over 40 insurance carriers, offering services for Health Insurance, Medicare Advantage and Supplement Plans, Life Insurance, Group Health Insurance, Vision, and Dental Plans. There is never a consultation fee; their services are zero cost to their clients.
Shawn grew up in Detroit, Michigan, until he was thirteen years old when he moved to Port Orange, Florida. A fun fact about Shawn is he is afraid of heights but loves to SkyDrive, and we admire that he can overcome his fears to enjoy such daredevil sports. Speaking of sports – he may not currently live in Detroit, but he loves their sports. However, his passion extends past sports and Michigan football to include his family, clients, and agency.
Shawn was referred to Work Webb about seven years ago by a friend. “Work Webb has been a consistent and enjoyable experience ever since,” exclaims Shawn. “My clients, staff, and I appreciate the partnership.”
Shawn, we thank you for choosing Work Webb for your office needs and volunteering to be our first featured tenant in our new blog series. To learn more about Shawn E. Brown Insurance, you can call them at 386-866-1090 or visit their website.
