Finding the Best Office Space for Your Small Business

In many ways, 2020 has been all about redefining what “normal” means. The economy has changed rapidly over the last several weeks, and you may find yourself coping with a new professional reality.

While it’s never easy to turn a crisis into opportunity, it’s certainly possible with the right mindset and support. And when it comes to supporting you and your business dreams, Intelligent Office (IO) is ready to help. 

Executive suites and private workspaces are available in IO locations across North America. Our goal is to make it possible for professionals like you to explore new business opportunities in a safe and productive environment. 

With that in mind, we want to share the top five signs you’ve found the perfect virtual office space. You need a space that makes it easy to do more of your best work, and here’s how you know when you’ve found an ideal location.

1. You feel good (and safe) when you walk into the reception area.

It’s so important to feel safe in your new virtual office space, so take note of the cleanliness when you walk into a reception area. 

At Intelligent Office, all of our locations pay extra attention to cleanliness and hygiene. Each location will have its own standards and protocols, and we’re happy to share those details with potential members. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with your local IO to learn more, because we’d love to help put your mind at ease.

2. You love (and feel safe in) the office space itself.

Next, assess how safe and secure you feel in the actual office space that you’ll be working from. Whether it’s an executive suite or another type of private workspace, it’s important that you feel comfortable in the space.

Don’t forget about the aesthetics, either. Do you like the furniture and decor? Is there enough natural light? Imagine what it will be like to work in that space and don’t stop searching until you find the best virtual office for your next business endeavor.  

3. You meet people who could help expand your professional network.

When embarking on a new professional undertaking, networking is essential. While it’s probably not a good idea to spend extended periods of time in very close proximity to officemates, you can still network and develop relationships while keeping social distancing protocols in mind.

If one of your business goals is to make connections, be sure to ask about the types of businesses that utilize the space. 

4. The virtual office has an ambiance that helps you stay productive.

After weeks or months of dealing with work from home distractions, it might be time for a change of pace. With virtual office space, it’s much easier to get focused, tackle important projects and increase your productivity.

Many virtual office spaces buzz with conversation and other noise, and that works for some professionals. But, if you’re looking for a distraction-free zone, schedule a tour at an IO location near you. Our members socialize and collaborate, but we’re also a bunch that appreciates peace and quiet.  

5. You can’t wait to take advantage of the amenities.

What kinds of perks are important to your business? Here are some of the top features and amenities that IO members value most, especially right now:

  • A clean, safe environment.
  • Private offices.
  • Access to conference rooms when needed.
  • Affordable pricing with no long-term leases required.
  • Friendly and professional receptionists to take care of your guests as soon as they walk in the door.
  • Additional services like mail handling and phone answering.
  • Access to technology you may not have at home, like printers, fax machines and conference-ready phones.

Every professional requires different types of amenities and support, which is why IO offers a wide variety of virtual spaces and services. We encourage you to get in touch with a location near you to learn more about available options.
