London Underground strike highlights benefits of a Virtual Office


Question – Did you have a relatively stress free and easy commute into work this morning?

The answer for most of us around the UK should be a resounding yes. But if you were trying to get into or around the Capital earlier, you will probably be shouting a big fat NO at the computer screen right now as you nurse your feet after a 5 mile walk.

Yes the London Underground network has ground to a halt once more as many of their workers go on strike over safety issues and job cuts.

Chaos reigned supreme above ground this morning with roads gridlocked, monumental crowd surges for the last few remaining spaces on the bus and cycle hire docking stations empty of bikes. And we have to repeat it all once again tonight...oh the joy.

But if you were a clever so and so, you may have persuaded your boss to let you work from home today - well done you!

You could, though, work from home every day, by renting a virtual office. If you’re a small business owner or a budding entrepreneur, a virtual office will give you:

  • The opportunity to impress your clients and suppliers with a prestigious business address
  • Your telephone calls answered by a professionally trained reception team
  • Your mail and parcel requirements handled on a daily basis
  • Access to meeting rooms and hot desking facilities
With a number of future strike dates already pencilled in by London Underground workers, the daily slog into work will only get tougher.

Renting a virtual office will mean you can avoid all such concerns and allow you to fully concentrate on running your business more efficiently.

Abbey Business Centres have a number of London virtual office locations to choose from – including a business address in the iconic 1 Canada Square building in Canary Wharf.
