The latest office trends for modern entrepreneurs
Running a business, big or small is not for the weak at heart. Managing people, budgets and timelines requires a clear mind and a robust decision-making process. Among the challenges of any successful enterprise is finding the right space for it to grow and flourish. Whether you are a one-man show, freelancing or you have other people whose well-being and success depend on your guidance, finding the optimal space for your business is key for it to thrive.
The new work trends have definitely changed the game when it comes to office space and the needs of big and small business owners alike have shifted accordingly.
Let’s talk costs!
Let’s face it: at the end of the day, it all comes down to the numbers! And being practical is a must when facts and figures are involved. Especially when talking about expenses, such as the ones related to the office space. With the rise of the hybrid work model, the business community has started to focus more on flexible terms and shorter leasing periods. And how could it be otherwise, since everyone is looking into cost optimization, while trying to maintain a healthy level of productivity and high work quality.
Now, with this particular scenario in mind, if you are looking for an inspirational workplace with a privileged positioning that offers the best value for money, choose to lease a private office located in a Business Center downtown, instead of investing time and money in buying furniture and all the other related costs. It may be more convenient for you to consider renting a fully-serviced office suite with flexible leasing options and a fixed monthly rent, all costs included.
As business owners or entrepreneurs, another valuable resource, if not the most valuable of all, is time. As much as we would like to oversee everything, the truth is, we simply can’t afford it. So, leasing an office in a Business Center that has been designed as a ‘one-stop-shop’ for your business – the sort that comes with high-level assistance and can provide support right from the beginning and throughout the development and growth of your company, can be a real asset. Having all those administrative tasks taken off your hands allows you to focus your energy where it can bring the most value to your business. Long-term, it saves you both time and money.
Location, location, location!
As much as we like the idea of working from anywhere, when you own a business, you know that its prosperity is highly dependent on your ability to build relationships. Networking requires you to meet people and your chances increase dramatically when you are in the middle of the hustle and bustle of a European metropolis. Being located in a representative neighborhood, with easy access to all of the city’s districts and business areas, to restaurants, cafes or culture hubs can be quite helpful in this sense. Moreover, proximity to financial and public institutions can also be beneficial for those with an entrepreneurial mindset and corresponding needs.
Last but not least, any respectable businessman has an image to look after and having your company address in an upscale, central area, in a new and modern office building, perhaps even in a historical building, might be an interesting trademark.
Premium facilities, for performance & excellence
Whether you prefer a large, generous office or a smaller one, the one thing we are sure you will not compromise on is quality. The proverbial devil is always in the details, so make sure they are as impeccable as the rest of your image is. Everything from the entrance/reception to your desk must reflect your company’s culture and values.
As to the facilities that may make your life easier and your business thrive, contrary to a very popular saying, more is more! Fully-equipped meeting rooms, state-of-the art technology that is readily available, whenever you should need it, professional business support, dedicated Community Manager and perhaps even a Business Concierge. Why not? As long as you have options and flexibility to customize them to better fit your needs, then you are good to go.
There is no universal recipe for success and no matter how business-savvy you are, there are no guarantees in life. But a suitable space for you to envision and manifest the very best of your ideas, is key for any successful enterprise. So go ahead, dream big and get to work!
