When firms are on the lookout for new office space to rent, they have to consider a number of issues and, if managers are not sure what to do, they can head online for information and advice.
For example, writing on bdaily recently, Fiona Kay offered some tips. She noted that when companies are trying to keep their costs to a minimum, they might benefit from opting to base themselves in less expensive cities. She pointed out that London can be pricey compared with other locations.
On the other hand, Glasgow is relatively cheap and, according to Ms Kay, the city is reinventing itself. She suggested that it is now “one of the best places to do business” outside of the English capital.
She also stated that it is important for bosses to consider value for money. For example, they should take note of the amenities that are included in their rental packages. Conference rooms may part of the deal and utilities are sometimes incorporated into bills.
Ms Kay went on to remark: “Why do you need office space? By listing the top three or four reasons office space is necessary, you will be better able to compare your ‘wants’ against your ‘needs’ when it comes to finding the right location.”
The writer added that it is important for enterprises to consider culture too. According to Ms Kay, it Managers must ensure that their organisations fit in with the ethos of other companies located in the office complex, especially if there is a lot of shared space.
About this, she said: “There could even be intriguing synergies and connections amongst businesses in your office complex if you all share a similar ethos, or work in industries with interesting overlaps and connections.”
There is no shortage of offices available for firms to make the most of and as long as bosses are careful when choosing, they should succeed in finding versions that meet all their needs.
