These days, with more reliable internet access and innovative communications platforms, it’s becoming more common for employees to work remotely or for employers to access workers who live in other places. If this sounds similar to your situation, you are probably maintaining office space that you just don’t need anymore.
To save costs and meet the current needs of your business, downsizing to a shared workspace could be the solution you’ve been looking for.
Advantages of downsizing to a shared workspace
Downsizing to a shared workspace can be highly advantageous for several reasons:
1. Reduce costs
You will no longer have to carry a costly office lease or maintain new office equipment, utilities, or insurance on your space. For a low monthly fee, you can access everything you need to get the job done, from meeting rooms to administrative staff and so much more. Without the recurring costs of payroll and various other services you would typically pay a premium for, your margin gains a lot of value!
2. Amenities on demand
You may think that by downsizing to shared office space means you’ll have to skimp on amenities, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, you may have even better amenities at your fingertips. Meeting rooms on-demand, a professional front office staff, lightning-fast internet, and state-of-the-art business machines are just a few of the on-demand amenities you can enjoy.
3. Scale up or down at your convenience
With a shared workspace, if your company grows, you can simply add more office space to your plan. Ditto if you need employees on a project basis. If your workforce downsizes along with your office, you aren’t stuck with empty desks or office space. Business growth can be achieved at your own pace.
A shared workspace gives you tremendous flexibility in terms of scale, budget, and planning. While it may be difficult to predict where your company is going to go in the future, you won’t have to worry about it if you’ve got a flexible, shared workspace. You pay for the office space and amenities you need when and as you need them, and you’ll be better able to plan for the future knowing that you’re prepared for whatever comes next.
One of the nice benefits of a shared workspace is that you’ll be working in a building that houses many types of other businesses, including freelancers and startups. As part of this community, you will have easy access to talent and services that may provide solutions to your own business needs. On the other side of the coin, you will be able to cultivate relationships with other professionals, including attorneys, designers, copywriters, coders, and more, many of whom may be in need of your services too.
