How much office space do you really need?

By Admin | Blog | 19 Aug 2021 |

Have you looked around your office and noticed there are fewer people than there used to be? Perhaps you’re looking to establish a new business and wonder which office space will suit your needs. 

Ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and rising instances of flexible environments mean the traditional Monday to Friday, 9 am to 5 pm is rapidly becoming a thing of the past. Some employees work from home, while other employees do different hours than the rest of the team. 

This creates challenges when planning your office space, and you don't want to pay for more than you need. This is why we have put together this guide so you get the best possible space without blowing the budget.  

Why have an office at all?

This is a valid question. However, if employees are going to be operating remotely and coming and going at different times, is there even a need to have a fixed location? 

The answer is yes – as having a base provides you with a range of benefits, including: 

 It makes it easier to monitor your team: This isn’t just about monitoring individual performance (although this is a factor), but also how employees interact in team environments and through informal discussions. It helps establish the right teams for projects that will be the most productive.

 Supports unstructured exchanges of ideas: The idea behind unstructured interactions is that all participants have an equal voice in the conversation, which can generate new ideas.

 Reduced costs: The more people work from home, the more you’ll need to purchase the technology required to accommodate their needs. Having a central location with hot desks will reduce the need to over-purchase technological requirements. 

The benefits of having an office are endless. You’ll have a dedicated location to work in, a place for meetings and conferences, and even a place to entertain clients. Offices are also beneficial for your team’s well-being to have fundamental human interactions, and they are the perfect environment for productivity and creativity.
