Owning a small to mid-size company has its pros and cons. On one hand, the business focus can be easily adjusted to suit trends and business needs without too much upheaval. On the other, financial constraints can often make expanding and real estate a difficulty. With the rising price of office rental space constantly climbing, many companies find it difficult to expand, employ more people and keep up with the overhead costs of running a company. Here are some office solutions for your small to mid-size company:

Virtual Office.

A virtual office is a flexible and cost-effective solution to leasing office space. Virtual offices are best suited to smaller companies who want to keep overhead costs down. Your virtual office provider does the job of postman, admin assistant and receptionist. It’s a flexible working solution which saves an up and coming business the hassle of finding real estate, hiring admin staff and negotiating wage and service contracts with suppliers. Your business address is now a prestigious city centre location, without the huge price tag. The services are covered by one low-cost charge per month, potentially saving your business thousands.

Serviced Office Space

Not only is prime real estate in Dublin at a premium, it’s also a huge competition with large multi-nationals to secure the best space at the best price. This often results in bidding wars, bringing the best space way out of your budget. Opting for a serviced office, instead of a long-contract office space is a better option for small & mid-size companies. Not only do your offices come furnished, with all bills and amenities included in one manageable monthly bill, you’re also guaranteed a flexible lease. Many office spaces and buildings are shared, meaning if you only need a desk or an entire building, you can be accommodated. There may also be opportunities to grow your business and staffing within the building.
 

Different Locations:

For many companies, office space means one large building and all your staff in the same place. These days, there are a huge variety of working options meaning that office solutions need to be more flexible. Instead of hiring one large, expensive space, why not spread your staff out to multiple locations? Depending on the nature of your company, this flexible option may be a better fit. Not only will this be better for your business, it will also save your staff a long commute, meaning staff happiness will be higher. For example, Premier Business Centres offer office space across Dublin and Kildare, from Baggot Street to Naas.

Remote Working:

In this age of flexible working, who says we need an office space at all! Depending on the nature of your business, it may be more cost-effective for your staff to work from home. There are so many digital platforms for shared and remote working that a bit of research and shopping around may save your business thousands in rent and overheads. You should invest in good quality team-management software and training to keep in touch. It’s also a good idea to hire a meeting room once a month for a day of face-to-face meetings. This is another opportunity to use a virtual office, so your clients have the illusion of an established office space, without the huge expense. Management software and training to keep in touch.
