Posted by Griffin Suber

01.19.17

If 2016 taught us anything, it’s to expect the unexpected. At some point, your business will face a crisis, and it’s important to have systems in place for when that happens.

Why Office Parks are No Place to Plant Your Business

Posted by Griffin Suber

10.20.16

When shopping for office space, it’s easy
 to get so wrapped up in conference rooms and amenities that you lose sight of one of the most critical aspects to consider: where the building actually is! There could be a chocolate fondue fountain in every office but that doesn’t mean anything if your building is hidden in some dull office park in the middle of nowhere.

A good office space is like a good employee: no hidden strings, no excuses, and ready to start working for you immediately. Shell space, in the world of workplaces, can seem similar to the employee who trumped up their resume. Unfurnished and unfinished, shell space takes on all the responsibility without any of the qualifications; often leaving you on the hook for more work than expected.

Does It Matter Where We Work?

Posted by Griffin Suber

09.14.16

As with the rest of society, modern technology has changed the way we do business. We work through clouds now; we communicate via dropboxes and video conferencing. Our new digital tools make it so easy to connect remotely that face-to-face interactions, and putting on a tie or makeup to do so, can seem more like a chore than a necessity. Not all companies are created equal and not all employees interact with clients (or each other) on a daily basis. The ease of remote accessibility has led to a spike in telecommuters and many young organizations are taking note of the advantages.

Celebrating a Century of National Parks

Posted by Griffin Suber

09.08.16

Last week, the nation’s National Park Service turned 100 capping off a century of
conservation, recreation, and historic preservation. Without our national parks, the District of Colombia would feel less like a historical hometown and more like a place where interns congregate in the summer. The District’s unique parks provide a balance to the city, they provide lush green spaces and attractive waterways in a city of marble and monuments. From forests to colonial homes, the National Parks of the District are accessible before work or after and are a stone’s throw from the city’s major business centers.

Think You Don’t Have Enough Time to Exercise? Try These 4 Quick Ways to Work Fitness into the Busiest of Days

Posted by Malaika Newman

08.25.16

We all have coworkers who seem to have it all together—including what seems like an impossible exercise routine. We imagine them waking up at 5 AM and tossing together a body and mind nourishing smoothie, heading out for a run while watching the sun rise, and still managing to arrive early at the office with the kind of glow you can’t pay for. Or maybe they use their lunch hour for a local yoga class, hit the gym for a session with a personal trainer after the day ends, or any other number of time-consuming fitness activities.
