Keep The Basics In Mind: The Importance Of A Right Workspace
The history behind offices dates back several years ago. Many might argue that it was important then, but not now. Well, we are in a new era of technology. Thanks to the wizardry of technology, most operations that would require one-on-one attention can now take place remotely. From meetings to doing company work, technology has made all of this possible from the comfort of people’s homes.
This is to the extent that people do not see any need to have a physical workspace. However, what is the truth in this? Can you operate a company or business without a workspace completely? Especially now, with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic – we naturally have to move towards online means to communicate with our colleagues or complete our tasks. However, the current WFH initiative is not always going so well for everyone, and some may actually work better in a physical workplace.
Keep reading on to find out what are the reasons why you may need a physical workspace after getting through the COVID-19 crisis.
This is simple. Remote collaboration is more than possible. However, there are a couple of downsides to it – accessibility, time, and communication. Network connectivity is one common problem, though not as severe as those involving miscommunication. Spoken words in person may be easier for one to convey our intentions or delegate our tasks without any blunders in the middle, which is why a physical workspace allows for smooth communication.
Choosing a physical workspace aside, it’ll be beneficial for your workplace and employees to have a space with additional facilities. At Work+Store, you can find workspaces with the standard facilities available – from air conditioning, lighting, to a powerpoint. Meanwhile, our workspaces can be found in 10 locations – specifically at Upper Thomson, Pasir Panjang, 72 Eunos, 100 Eunos, Aljunied, Ang Mo Kio, Bukit Merah, Bartley, and Tampines. As for our Aljunied space, we have an offer where tenants get to enjoy 2 months-rent free. Additional perks of our spaces in Aljunied include free usage of meeting rooms and parking. Reach out to our staff if there are any pressing questions which need clarification. Terms and conditions apply.
Employees normally build each other – all of them act as an anchor. This support helps the company to grow positively. That’s when supporting each other at personal levels is important and where face-to-face interaction matters. So, now that you have seen the need to have an office, when is the right time to get one? Well, the best time to get an office is as early as the company starts. Moreover, you don’t have to start big. You can start with a cheap small office space for rent, as you progress to a larger premise.
Work+Store is able to offer the cheapest self-storages and workspaces to support your business, with our storage spaces available for rent with sizes varying from 6 sqft with the largest space going up till 730 sqft, whereas our workspaces range from 88 sqft onwards. Meanwhile, our spaces – both workspaces and self-storages – are well-equipped with 24/7 camera surveillance and accessibility. We also provide flexible and enticing lease terms which include short period of lease and the option of contract transfer to numerous other types of services or products within our premises or even our parent company, LHN Group, containing a broad range which includes vending machine locations, pop-up store venue rental, event venues, and so forth.
Naturally, it is part of human nature to compete – whether at work, school, or home. Competition can be positive, especially in a workplace setting. When you encourage your staff to accomplish certain goals and place a compensation perk on the goals, this can motivate all of them to work harder and with dedication.
Everyone will be trying to secure the reward, thus, giving you a competitive advantage. With a competitive advantage, you can expect productivity to go up, and so do the profits.
Building teamwork remotely, again, is a huge hassle. You have to get people together for meetings and encourage them to work together when they are miles away from each other. It is easier done when people are together in the office and can interact at personal levels. Nonetheless, it isn’t that it’s impossible for people to collaborate remotely – it would just be more ideal to have them meet together first and know each other before they can start working away from each other.
Working in the comfort of our own home may be relaxing at times, but ultimately, for some – it may better to be in a physical workspace environment.
During a crucial time like this, we have to all the more, work hand in hand with our colleagues and bosses to keep the business thriving amid this economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, eventually – we’ll manage to tide over this crisis, and we’ll have to prepare to return back to the workforce again. Whether it’s to start afresh or downsize to a smaller workspace to save costs – a physical workspace can do plenty in supporting a business. Meanwhile, tenants who already have an existing space with us – be it a workspace or self storage – will still have access to the space. However, be mindful that existing tenants should still do what they can to abide by the government Circuit Breaker guidelines closely – so every one of us is doing our part in social distancing and keeping ourselves healthy at all times.
At Work+Store, you’ll come across some of the cheapest self storages and workspaces which are perfect for starting off the right track without having to spend heaps of amounts. For better collaboration and interaction, our spaces, be it self-storages and can even act as ancillary offices to provide support to different tasks – be it manufacturing, marketing, or admin activities.
