Business goals – we all have them. To increase profits, improve efficiencies, lower employee turnover, better our brand image – our choice of objectives is endless. But, at the end of the day, all of these goals lead to one thing – business growth.
Whether you are a start-up or a mature business, you’re always looking for ways to propel your business forward, to make your company the best and to be as successful as you can be.
Growing a business isn’t always easy. It comes with increased organizational requirements, a need for more employees, and additional equipment and supplies.
So how can you grow your business without becoming susceptible to the risks associated with the ever-increasing expenses associated with growth?
One solution is to consider using the services of a business centre.
Business centres complement the ever-changing business environment where technology is giving us more flexibility, allowing us to work anywhere at any time, and where there are more entrepreneurs, home businesses, and mobile services than ever before.
Eliminating the need for a traditional long-lease office space, business centres help small and medium-sized businesses, like yours, significantly minimize growth risks by reducing costs, such as office space rentals, staffing, overhead, IT infrastructure, and audio/video conferencing – just to name a few.
From Start-Up to Maturity – How a Business Centre Can Help
Business Centres offer flexible workspace solutions to small and medium sized businesses, ensuring you have the space you need when you need it. As your business grows, you can upgrade your space.
Home Office Start-Ups
A home office is a great solution and perfect for your start-up business, but when you’re trying to impress clients, that ‘at-home’ feel can take you down a notch.
If you work from home (and enjoy it) there is no need for you to leave your space just yet. A virtual office can be a great solution to get you started.
Virtual offices let you continue your operations from your home, while providing you with a professional address that current and potential clients can correspond with. Whether they are mailing a cheque, calling for an appointment or dropping in to bring you some paperwork, virtual office will give you the professionalism of a fancy office without the additional overhead.
In addition to a virtual office, you can also take advantage of the meeting spaces that business centres offer, allowing you to get together with clients in a professional space that includes all the amenities you may need, such as audio/video equipment, refreshments, and phone/video conferencing.
Mobile businesses are a growing opportunity as more and more people seek the convenience of service on their schedule. The problem is, whether you are a mobile barber, mechanic, massage therapist or any other service provider, you still need a home base to work from.
While some people work from home, this isn’t always an option due to a lack space or quiet time. Cafés are also popular but these can be busy, loud and have the added cost of keeping your cup full.
Pay-as-you-go workspaces or lounge memberships are a great solution.
Both offer a professional, fun and peaceful environment where you can put your head down and get your work done, without having to invest in full-time space.
Growing Small Businesses
If you have successfully defeated the start-up level of your business adventure, it is time to grow. As you become busier and find that you require more time in-the-office, you may want to look into co-working or shared office space.
These spaces offer more privacy than other part-time solutions while allowing you to mingle with like-minded professionals to seek and share advice. You may even be able to find a new customer!
If the co-working environment does not appeal to you, you can take advantage of part-time offices. These offices are furnished and are ready to go when you are.
By opting for a co-working or a part-time office, you can benefit from the professionalism and productivity of an office space without the cost of a long-term full-time lease. And, you will enjoy the added benefit of additional business services.
