Your home office is perfect for most functions. There are times when it would be great to have office space in a more conventional setting. Since those only happen once in a while, it makes sense to find spots where hot desking is something that you can use for a day, a few days, or a slightly longer period. If you ever experience any of these situations, temporary office space is right for you.
Getting the Creative Juices Flowing
You’ve begun to get into a rut with your home-based business. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, especially if the rut is comfortable and the business is doing well. The thing to remember is that ruts can get too comfortable. You may become so focused on maintaining the operation that the ideas for expansion and doing old things in new ways could become a thing of the past.
You need to remain creative if you want the business to thrive. A different setting for a short amount of time could be the incentive that you need. By securing office space elsewhere for a week or so, you could begin to come up with some new ideas on how to make things better. At the least, the break in the usual routine will help you appreciate the home office setting all the more.
Meeting a Client Face to Face
Most of your interaction with clients is done via email, document sharing, and the occasional web/video conference. Once in a while, a client is going to be in town and would like to sit down with you. That’s fine, but asking a client to a home office is not the best idea.
The nice thing about temporary office space is that it comes with all the basics. You can add a few personal embellishments to your office and have it look as if you’ve been there for years. Rent the space for the duration of your client’s stay, including the day before and the day after. The client will feel comfortable, you’ll be happy with the arrangement, and great things could come out of those meetings.
Hosting a Training Event
You plan on expanding the business by taking on employees who will also work from home. For the training, you want to do a hybrid of online and face to face training. Do rent a conference room for the latter. That gives everyone a chance to meet in person, take care of the preliminaries, and accomplish enough that the online training can easily cover the rest.
A Place to Work While the Home Office is Renovated
Where will you work if the home office needs to be renovated? Attempting to work in another room with all the hammering, drilling, and other renovation tasks going on is not practical. You would do better to rent a temporary office and get the peace and quiet needed to continue taking care of your daily tasks. Make sure you have the option to extend your stay at the office, just in case the renovation runs a little past the anticipated completion date.
These are only some of the situations that call for finding a short-term place to get your work done. Whatever the need, you can bet that one of the Agile Offices for rent in Toronto will have everything you want. Try this arrangement the next time you need to be away from the home office for any reason. Once you see how well it works, there will be no hesitation about using it again if the need arises.
