Shared office space has a wide range of benefits which can make your working life easier. Whether you are out in the field most of the time and just need a desk or meeting room occasionally, or you want somewhere quiet to work from for your start-up business, a hot desk environment is the perfect solution.
Renting space in a shared office gives your business a more professional image. You get a business address to use, where mail can be received even when you are not on the premises, and your workplace looks like an office, not a portion of your home. Meeting clients at a home office can also feel like an invasion of your family’s privacy. Serviced offices are cleaned regularly, and maintenance is taken care of too. Better still, you don’t have to worry about hiding away rogue LEGO bricks before a client meeting!
Working from home may sound idyllic but it can be challenging, particularly if you have family members or flatmates around during your preferred working hours. Whether it’s the doorbell ringing in the middle of an important phone call or finding your toddler has rearranged your paperwork – distractions are inevitable when you work from home. Using a shared office space means you can avoid the interruptions of home life and focus all your attention on your work. It can also help you to keep your working hours under control and separate your work life from your home life. When you use a home office it is much easier for the lines to blur and you can find work encroaching on your family time.
With a hot desk, you get to use professional office space far more economically than a full office lease. You can select the hours and days to rent a hot desk so you only pay for what you need. Choose office space close to your home and you can save on the commute too.
A shared office space usually has additional facilities which you don’t have at home, such as conference rooms. These can be used for meetings, training sessions or just for making conference calls.
Using a home office can sometimes leave you feeling isolated. A hot desk in a coworking space gives you the opportunity to meet other professionals who are also using the office. You may discover potential clients, partners or suppliers when you use a hot desk service. Or you may simply find it helpful to bounce ideas off other people and get their advice on aspects of your business.
