This is the fifth blog in our month-long Get to Know Office Place series. Over the next few weeks, we will highlight our dedicated staff and various office space and meeting room solutions.
Get to Know OfficePlace: Private Offices
The traditional office place that we all knew prior to March 2020 has changed forever. Many organizations have discovered that employees can be productive while working at home and that it might not be necessary to have large office space to accommodate “business hours” anymore.
Where and how we do our work isn’t the only thing that has changed over this past year. A big shift in employment opportunities has been the result of companies facing changing market conditions and their focus on reducing payroll and operating expenses.
Reduced working hours, pay cuts and layoffs have taken their toll. Many Americans have found themselves looking for work and/or are still looking for work.
With this uncertainty and volatility caused by the coronavirus as a background, we find a surge in business startups. More than anytime during the past decade, new startups are being launched and existing ones are showing rapid growth. For some, this is an opportunity to try something new and start that business that they have always been contemplating. For others, it is the motivation to do freelance or set up consulting practice.
Basics for Any Startup
Here are two essentials for anyone thinking about starting a business:
Business location address
(See Get to Know OfficePlace: Virtual Offices) A business address is a “must” for Google mapping, a requirement when establishing business credentials from your local state and a safe and secure way to receive mail and packages addressed to your business.
A small private office might be the best way to get your business off the ground. “Going to work” and getting to your workspace in a small place to call your own, free of distractions, is ideal in increasing focus and productivity.
Your office will add credibility to your business and provide a professional advantage in meeting clients and adding resources to your team.
