10 Signs You Should Upgrade to a Commercial office
(Asia Serviced Offices)
If you’re running a business, you may have considered renting commercial space as a professional base for your company. Here are 10 signs it’s time to take the plunge…
You’re attracting high-profile clients and need a professional address.
As you start to get larger clients who may wish to meet with you and discuss upcoming projects, you may find your home office isn’t quite the environment you’d like to share with them. Having a professional address looks the part, and you’ll have access to a smart conference room for discussing important matters.
Your family are distracting.
You may love them, but they may not be the best people to have around while you’re trying to work. While working from home, there’s always a chance your husband, wife, partner or kids may try to ask for small favours when you should be working. There’s also the possibility of loud background noise, which isn’t ideal if you often contact clients or co-workers by phone.
You’re distracting your family.
Sure, they may distract you, but you may be doing the same to them! They may not appreciate the phone constantly ringing or the possibility of clients stopping by.
There’s also the chance you’re hogging their office time. Perhaps your partner is hoping to use it for their job, or maybe your kids need the PC for their homework.
You don’t have enough time to answer calls.
Serviced offices provide professional telephone answering and secretarial services, leaving you with more time to focus on the job.
You get lonely working from home.
It’s important to avoid loneliness as you work. By working in a commercial space, you’ll be close to plenty of other hard workers who may become helpful contacts as you build new relationships.
You’re hiring new employees.
If you’re hiring new employees and will need to liaise with them regularly as you work, wouldn’t it be easier if you were all in the same building? In your new commercial office, they’ll be right there with you, ready to share ideas throughout the day.
You’re lacking motivation.
When you’re at home, it’s easy to switch off the computer and watch a movie instead. No wonder you’re unmotivated! When you’re based in an office, the temptation isn’t there and you’ll be motivated to finish your tasks and get home to your family.
Your office is cramped and cluttered.
A disorderly work area is not a productive one, but it’s not surprising your home office is piling up – especially if you have to share it with general home storage and family items.
A commercial space will be entirely yours and can be designated as a space to work without personal clutter.
You need to regulate your day.
If you’re struggling to maintain the balance between work and play, getting out of the house to a dedicated workspace can help you to separate the two. After finishing projects at the office, come home and relax, knowing your work is done.
You want to be where the action is.
Most serviced offices or commercial spaces are located in key financial or business districts. You’ll find yourself amongst like-minded people which may increase your chances of making great professional connections.
