Freelancers, consultants and private proprietors understand the challenges of finding an ideal space in which to work. For many business people, their success depends on their ability to operate out of a serviced office space that is outfitted with everything needed to remain productive, stay organised and to be able to effectively communicate and meet with clients or business partners.
Such office spaces can come at a hefty cost, particularly for those small businesses that need to be careful of where their capital is spent. Fortunately for the scores of those business people who are seeking alternative spaces to be productive; being able to rent out dynamic shared or private workspaces addresses these needs in a functional and cost-effective manner. But you could save money by working from home, right?
So why would you opt to make use of one of these workspaces?
Well, here are several reasons: Making use of provisionsInvesting into and managing facilities, internet and phone connections or even something as simple as the coffee, copy and fax machines can take a surprisingly large chunk of your productive time away from you; and let's be honest, you have more pressing concerns to attend to.
Most dynamic workspaces that are worth their while come outfitted with these types of amenities and are professionally managed by the company involved, saving time for you to get some work done. If you are able to reduce your overall overheads, you can then afford to spend a bit more on innovating your business.
Breaking the monotony of a work day
Anyone who has ever worked from home could tell you how quickly isolation can get to you and start affecting your ability to be productive.You might be able to work like a machine, but at the end of the day, you are not one. You need human interaction, a change in scenery now and then and the ability to break up the monotony of a work day to stay focused; which is why dynamic workspaces are becoming more popular.Fostering creativity through privacy
However, for work tasks that are best done in privacy (that is without interruptions or interferences which could cause lapses in concentration); a private workspace offers you an area that can be escaped to during critical production and concentration moments. This complete isolation can then be broken later on by making use of communal areas.
Improving worker productivity
Many virtual offices are based on the worker's performance, instead of the number of hours spent at the desk. This helps encourage your employees to become more efficient and to get more work done. With a physical office, a lot of time is spent assisting your employees with tasks, but when they are responsible for their own productivity, they end up creating their own schedules, which helps with productivity.
As your employees need not be at their desks the whole time their work-life balance is greatly improved.Enabling collaborationWorkspaces that are shared, open and encourage interaction are a great way to enable collaboration between professionals from related fields to yours.
In many cases, this potential collaboration goes a long way towards collectively being productive when working on a single project; or simply encourages innovative thinking when your ideas need to be bounced around.Building your referral client baseIn addition, by sharing your office space with related professionals, you will be able to enjoy the synergy of building your referral client base with other similar non-competing companies
