Why Space Efficiency Is Important For Small Businesses
Lack of space in a workplace is a common problem that many small businesses face these days. This day-to-day issue may eventually result in other undesirable consequences – such as to hinder business expansion, bring down employee productivity, and create clutter.
That’s when businesses have to incorporate space efficiency into their workspaces – which simply means to use each and every bit of space available to them in the best possible manner. For some – it’s starting with a new type of workspace, like a self storage.
There are many different ways you can make use of your existing space – and the following are the reasons why you should start incorporating space efficiency.
Prepare for business expansion
One business goal that remains the same throughout the entire course of your career is company growth. And that’s where you ensure your current space and design has sufficient room for more staff to join the team. By doing so, it’ll be easy to bring new people in – without feeling obstructed by your ability to assign them a workstation. If not, you will either have to start redesigning or expanding your workspace.
We provide the cheapest self storages and workspaces with flexible lease terms so you can upgrade your unit once your business is ready to start expanding. They include short term lease and contract transfer to other different products and services within Work+Store or even our parent company, LHN Group, consisting of a broad array – pop-up store location rental, serviced offices and apartments, event venues, and so on.
Ensure smooth business operations
When proper space planning is implemented in your workplace – it ensures optimal use of floor area without any wasted space usually spent on unnecessary storage, circulation, and other time-wasting tasks and spaces. Meanwhile, you should place employees who are constantly working together in the same space – so they can communicate effectively whenever necessary. While executive and managers should be given their designated workspace and own areas – so others will know where to go to for assistance.
If you’re still looking for an affordable office space for rent, Work+Store provides workspaces starting from 88 sqft onwards. Not only do they provide extra storage room – but they are fully furnished with basic facilities like sufficient lighting, air conditioning and a powerpoint to help you get started with your business. On the other hand, our workspaces also function as an ancillary office to help support any industrial activities like manufacturing. We have 10 locations available across Singapore, comprising Pasir Panjang, Tampines, Bartley, 72 Eunos, 100 Eunos, Kallang, Aljunied, Bukit Merah, Upper Thomson and Ang Mo Kio. To begin with, you can consider trying out our Aljunied location to save costs – there’s currently a rent-free promotion. It’s directly opposite Aljunied MRT and accessible via PIE, so employees can enjoy maximum convenience. Contact us if you’re interested in more details. Terms and conditions apply.
Boost employee health
A cluttered workspace may affect your employees negatively. The piles and stacks of documents or files can distract an individual from the task they have at hand – this can lead to stressed-out employees who are unable to complete their work. To prevent such an incident from happening, it’s important to take the necessary measures – such as regular reminders of cleaning one’s desk and filing client files and documents consistently. In this way, your workplace is kept neat and tidy – so your employees’ health won’t be compromised upon.
However, if there’s still insufficient space even after organising and tidying your workplace – you may want to consider going for a new workspace with extra space storage. At Work+Store, we offer the cheapest self-storages in Singapore – ranging from 6 sqft up to 730 sqft. Depending on your budget, you can decide if you would prefer a large or small office for rent. Additionally, our self-storages come with 24-hour accessibility and camera surveillance to encourage flexible working hours and monitor your workplace, so employees are productive at work and safe at all times. Besides increasing employee satisfaction – sharing work and storage space together also eases logistics procedures and enhances efficiency in goods procurement to meet customers’ needs.
When your business is starting to grow – especially when you’re a startup or small organisation; it’s even more important to manage your space. It’s only when you do so that it’s possible to maximise your current workspace and hire new employees.
