Knowing what kind of office is right for you and your business is essential to making a success of what it is you’re doing. If you don’t choose the right kind of office, you could end up out of pocket, tied into a long term contract, and have nothing to show for it. Let’s talk about the different kinds of offices and which you should choose:
A traditional office could mean being tied into a lease for 3-5 years. This isn’t ideal for startup businesses who don’t know where they’ll be in a year, let alone 5. However, there are benefits for bigger established businesses.
A virtual office allows business owners and staff members to work remotely, as and when they need to. You get many of the benefits of a regular office without the actual space or desks. It can be hard to get your head around, but it can be the perfect option for many. You may not have the physical space, but you can use the address, the receptionist, the meeting rooms, and more.
A serviced office is ideal for those who don’t want to get tied into a long term contract. You will have an agreement for a maximum of a few months if you choose a serviced office. You pretty much get a ready made office available to you, where you have trained staff, someone who will answer the telephone, and cleaning services included.
