Choosing your first office space as an entrepreneur, small business owner, or even a large business owner, in a business centre can be an exciting turning point for your business.
But choosing just any office space to grow your business is a huge mistake. You need to make sure that the office space and the business centre you are choosing is exactly what you need to grow! So to help you figure out what you should be looking for, here are 10 Tips When Using a Business Centre!
You have to keep in mind that employees will need accessibility in your office space. Are they near your employees, freeways, or public transportation? Also, will clients and employees able to locate your office space easily?
Think About Amenities
Is your office space close by to things that you may want or need? This can include close by restaurants, cafes, banks, parking, bike racks and more.
The obvious elephant in the room. How much is your office space renting for? What are other business centres offering? How much space do you really need? These are all questions that need to be answered to make the most of a business centre for your business.
Make Sure the Lease is Clear
Making sure that you are aware of what is included with your rental office space is very important. You don’t want to find out after you sign a 12 month contract with a business centre that you don’t have something included that you thought was!
Find a Secure Building
Whether you are renting an office space, or buy your own, security is a MUST. Luckily, with a business centre, you don’t have the worry of buying security equipment like cameras, people, and making sure that nothing is stolen or broken into.
Find a Space That Fits Your Team
Of course this makes sense when you are using a business centre to have your team there. But you want to make sure that they are comfortable in the space. Not to squished together, and not too spaced apart that there is a communication barrier.
Make Sure There is Space to Grow
This doesn’t mean rent a larger space than you need. This means that you need to make sure that the business centre you are renting space from is flexible and allows you to grow when you need to. Like here at SuiteWorks!
