Things To Consider When Setting Up A Working Space
One of the best resources available to entrepreneurs in Singapore today is alternative workspaces where small businesses and start-ups can benefit from a conducive working environment without the high costs and lengthy lease terms associated with traditional offices.
The opportunities are vast to do so, with plenty of self storages in Singapore today offering big and small office spaces for rent, aside from storage rental, to turn it into your working space. There are a few things to consider before you do so. Read on below.
Understand your business needs
With so many working spaces to choose from, how do you begin narrowing them down?
Evaluate what your business needs and plan out the requirements. Are you a client-facing business? A central location would be more ideal and convenient to business visitors and customers. Do you carry out deliveries? Look for the relevant building’s amenities to support your business activities.
Understanding how you can support your core business and operations effectively and efficiently is crucial to maintaining your business performance and promote growth.
Picking a location
When identifying a location to settle down, consider its accessibility and convenience. Find out the surrounding amenities that are available such as eateries and banks to fulfil daily needs as well as public transportation for everyday commute. This has the ability to improve the prospects of attracting new talent and clients to network with you. Good accessibility can be a strategic advantage your business possesses.
Price can also be a factor. To stay within your means, you can find the cheapest self storages in Singapore that offer more affordable workspace rental at a desirable location. One such storage facility is Work+Store which has 10 locations across Singapore including Bukit Merah, Ang Mo Kio, 72 Eunos, 100 Eunos, Tampines, Aljunied, Kallang, Bartley, Upper Thomson and Pasir Panjang. Currently, we are having a rent-free promotion for our Aljunied location so you can enjoy greater savings. Contact us to find out more. Terms and conditions apply.
Design it right
Once you have acquired the space, you need to plan the office design effectively so you can get right down the business once you’re moved in. Research has shown that workplace design can have a huge impact on how much work gets done. Designing the ideal working environment for you can promote maximum productivity and higher employee satisfaction, especially when your team members are able to collaborate effectively.
Think about seating arrangements – are private cubicles or open working spaces more effective for people to carry out their daily tasks? Think about creating spaces where they can also transition between working styles and fit their preferences, to have focused work or brainstorm ideas together when the time comes. Maximize your space so people can have sufficient room to socialize, bond, collaborate and network as well as run business operations smoothly. For storage of items, make sure they do not clutter your space and affect the space you work. If there is space constraint, consider self storages that offer storage room and workspace rental so you can accommodate both needs adequately.
