Benefits Of Working In An Office Environment
6 January 2020

With the New Year upon us, increased numbers are expected to register their new business ideas. So here are some helpful facts as to how an Office at Harlow Business Centre can help your business grow.

There are many advantages to working from an office over working from home and it’s great to be able to separate work and home life.

We have easy-in easy-out monthly licence terms with no long-term commitment giving you the ability to move to larger or smaller premises as your business demands. Flexibility is key when running your own business.

Our central location means that there is easy access to public transport, and we have designated parking for members of your team and visitors.

We provide a Royal Mail postal service for collection and delivery for all our clients meaning you don’t have to make that extra trip to the post office saving you time and money.

Our meeting room provides a professional space for you to host clients. We provide free Wi-Fi, tea and coffee making facilities and 8 hours free use per month for our Harlow Business Centre tenants. Having that professional space could be vital for you to secure new business and host existing clients in a professional working environment.

We have an onsite management and maintenance team who make sure the site is always looking clean and tidy and who can help with any issue that may occur.
When you work in an office, you have the opportunity to meet more people, your neighbours and everyone based at the centre.

When you are working in an office, it’s much easier to arrange meetings with colleagues and clients and book our onsite meeting room for your meetings. Most people prefer to speak face to face than keeping in touch through emails and texts.

You get the privacy and time for yourself when you are working in an office. Far from homely atmosphere, you get a place where you can think and work independently without any restrictions. You are the master of your own self.

Those who have an office set up at home keep contact very limited. Either it is through telephone, text or a couple of emails. They can’t meet people physically or enjoy the environment. This is where office workers maximise their benefits.

Having a business address ensures your brand maintains a credible, professional and legitimate business image.  Using a physical business address and office phone number on your business cards, website and email increases trust in prospects and clients as opposed to seeing a mobile number and home address. It increases your professionalism and credibility as a business and makes you more approachable.

Our monthly service charge includes onsite management, maintenance and repair, building insurance, refuse collection, security, water rates and the cleaning of the common areas.  So less for you to worry about and get on with growing your business.

Some people are happier working in an office and some people are happier working from home. You have to weigh your options and decide what is best for you. Can you be disciplined enough to work from home?  Will you be happy without the daily support of your co-workers?  Both options have their advantages and disadvantages. Only you can decide what is the best option for you.

We also have an onsite café which is open 5 days a week meaning you don’t have to remember to make lunch!
