Co-working spaces, shared working spaces, seat leasing or office leasing, which one is right for your business
When a business reaches the point where they need to increase office space, it can be a difficult decision. There are many different options available, each with their own set of benefits. In this blog post, we will discuss four ways to get more office space and the benefits of each. We will also provide some tips on how to choose the option that is best for your business.
A co-working space is a great option for businesses that need office space but don’t want to commit to a long-term lease. Co-working spaces offer short-term memberships, which makes them perfect for businesses that are in the early stages of growth. In addition, co-working spaces come with all required amenities and are almost always pre-furnished and serviced.
Shared workspaces are perfect for businesses that need office space but don’t have a large budget. With this option, your business will share office space with other companies. The benefits of shared workspaces are that they tend to be less expensive than office leasing and per-seat are also usually cheaper than co-working spaces. Depending on the contract terms, shared spaces often offer all required amenities and support infrastructure including internet access and office supplies.
For larger companies or organizations that require at least an entire floor, or an entire building, there is the office leasing option. Office leasing can be very beneficial for companies that want to maintain a certain level of control over their office environment. Longer term and less flexible than the other options, office leasing allows for more customization and often comes with added services, such as receptionists, maintenance services and janitorial staff.
The final way to get more office space is through seat leasing. Seat leasing is perfect for businesses that only need a few extra seats in an office setting. Seat leasing contracts are usually shorter than office leasing and allow for more flexibility in terms of demand.
