There are some great articles out right now criticizing the open-office layout environment typical of a lot of co-working spaces as well as questioning the typical business model of being tied to a desk in an office. As your own boss, it may be difficult to determine what is best for you and your working style. Below are some questions to ask yourself when looking for a space that works for you.
What is your most productive type of working environment?
How does noise from opening and closing drawers, computer typing, random chatter, and constant coming and going affect your work – are you easily distracted or does the ambient noise help you to focus? If you’re easily distracted by other people in one space, a co-working environment or working at a coffee shop may not be the best space for you. Access Office Business Center has private, furnished offices from 100 to 1300 sq feet available. You have your own space but don’t have to pay the typical overhead associated with staffing and equipping a traditional office.
Do you often work individually or in small groups?
For some companies, the majority of the work involves team brainstorming and collaborating on ideas. For others, the majority of the work is done individually, with little need for group input. Depending on the business, leasing a team room may make more sense than working virtually with a package that includes meeting room rental time. You should determine what set up is best for your business model as Access Office Business Center can accommodate both situations.
Do you frequently need to meet with clients in person?
If you work virtually most of the time and don’t have a frequent need for meeting rooms or office meetings then virtual solutions may work best for you. A certain number of hours to use the meeting and conference rooms are included in your package so you can decide the level of usage that works best for your business. That way you have a professional, private space available when you need it. If you consistently and frequently have clients who need to speak with you privately, then a fully-furnished office space may be the best solution for you.
