Executive Office Suite
An executive office suite provides a full-time office space, business amenities such as a reception area, conference room(s), printer/copier, and kitchen, as well as support staff like receptionists and assistants. An upscale office environment at a prestigious, convenient location, paired with friendly, professional receptionists to answer calls and greet clients, can project a first-class image for a business. Office suites are usually move-in ready with furniture, phones, and Internet, so setting up one’s office is relatively easy. In addition, there is no ongoing office upkeep other than paying rent. Executive office suites provide flexibility for growing companies that will need more space and services over time but do not want to tie up resources in unutilized space, equipment, or staff.
Over the long run, however, executive office suites can be more expensive than a traditional office lease for bigger firms, and users need to watch out for variable costs, hidden charges, lease terms, renewal notices, and quality of support staff. In an improving economy, one can also expect periodic price increases with short-term leases. Executive office suites are shared office facilities, and some businesses may prefer to have a more permanent office of their own.
