In recent years, telecommuting has become a popular choice amongst professionals in the workforce. Working remotely offers convenience, flexibility, and significantly reduces costs on commuting and appropriate clothing for the office. Considering becoming an entrepreneur? While there is an increased interest in finding ways to escape the usual “9-5” job, working from home is not suitable for everybody. We understand how important it is to have a sense of community in the workplace. Learn how a business centre can help you get prepared.

Your work style and work space can significantly impact the development of your brand. Not every home office is equipped with the proper tools needed to function as a successful business. However, many professionals cannot afford to invest in their own commercial space, and may simply need a short-term leasing option since full time office rentals often require a 5 – 10 year commitment, a personal guarantee (exposing family wealth) & usually require an expensive build out and technology to operate efficiently. Fortunately, with the rise of telecommuting, office space alternatives are also becoming increasingly more prevalent. Our community of office members offers excellent opportunities to collaborate and grow your business.

The Benefits of a Joining a Business Centre

Business CentreOffice space rentals are an ideal solution for an entrepreneur, start-up, or small company wanting to work independently. You can still retain a sense of community that is often lost when only working from home. Belonging to a network of entrepreneurs can also lead to a number of new business opportunities. Here are a few more reasons why joining a shared workspace is beneficial for you and your business:

  • Convenient Location: Shared workspaces are strategically located in areas with easy access to the city or within the main city itself. You have the benefit of working from a prime location at an affordable price. A professional mailing address will also enhance your business image and attract potential clients.
  • Practical Space: Business centres are outfitted with all the tools and equipment you need to conduct a successful practice. The reception and common areas are not always required but available if you need to utilize them. Access to these spaces is a benefit for you since you do not incur any of the related expenses. Furthermore, not only is there plenty of space indoors but parking spaces will be readily available for you and your clients.
  • Reduce Capital Expenditure: Start-ups can cost a significant amount of money to operate. Deciding to rent an office means you do not have to invest in furnishings, business equipment, or insurance. Initial expenses can add up fast and usually end up costing you more than you originally budget for.
  • No Liability: Avoid the formal legalities of a long term contract when you rent an office on demand. Office rentals feature more flexible terms and you are only expected to pay for the office time and services that you need.
  • Integrated Support Team: Take advantage of a pre-existing support team. Receptionists can take your calls, handle visitors, and schedule meetings at your convenience. Administrative support that is provided for you will decrease your operating expenses and also save you time while diminishing any human resource liabilities.

  • I can’t go with any other choice...

    When I started my engineering business 4 years ago, I was looking for a space where it’s cost effective and at a prime location. It was a challenge! This is the best I could find, close to my home so the driving was faster, also the reception is exceptionally good. When you walk in the office, the welcoming atmosphere, the options I have here, I can’t go with any other choice.

  • You have the necessary simple structure which allows you to focus on your day to day job.

    We’ve been doing this for almost 8+ years on a full-time basis, and I’ve been with Officescape for just over 5 years at this point. Pretty much the length of our practice, we’ve been part of a certain shared office center. With Officescape, you get the advantage of amazing office space, professional staff to greet your clients, and not worrying about unnecessary procedures. You have the necessary simple structure, which allows you to focus on your day to day job.

  • It’s very professional and they don’t even know that its not our office!

    We started using Officescape primarily because we needed an address for mailing purposes and for our product. I use them for meeting rooms as well, when I bring my buyers in. It’s very professional and they don’t even know that that is not our Maxell office. It’s important for us to keep our profile image. Having a company in Canada for 16 years, our buyers are coming into our offices all the time, we still needed a space to have that place for our buyers to come visit us and vice versa.

  • My experience has been very positive!

    I chose Officescape because the staff are really friendly, I found them really helpful and really resourceful. I also find the building to be really clean and really bright, I like some of the architectural design. They always greet my clients very friendly, always offer them coffee, tea, water and always say goodbye to them when they leave. My experience at Officescape has been very positive!
