To be truly successful in anything, you need to be fully committed to it. You wouldn't expect to win all of your football matches if you never actually showed up to any training sessions. The same goes for your marketing. You can't expect to see a positive result if you inconsistently produce blog content or rarely post on your various social media platforms.
There’s an increasing number of freelancers and startups choosing coworking spaces over congested coffee shops and diners with free wifi. We’ve already discussed in a previous post about why this shift is occurring, but the simple reason is that these spaces promote collaboration and productivity. But coworking spaces have their own sets of challenges as well, one of which is noise. There’s the buzzing of phones, impromptu meetings, email dings, and people walking around. How does this promote productivity?
These days you’d be hard pressed to find a workplace without some sort of food perk - whether that’s simply a fridge to store your food in, a fully stocked pantry, or daily three-course catering services. It goes without saying that this can be an expensive endeavor, regardless of whether you’re Google or a neighbourhood mom and pop shop.
Diversity in the office, simply put, can be good for business. A study examining management teams found that those with a wider range of educational and work backgrounds created more innovative products. Likewise, another study found that firms with greater racial and gender diversity had more sales revenue, more customers, and greater profits.
Sometimes people take for granted those essential elements that help optimize productivity! Be it in a private office, coworking space, or even at home, use this list to create that workspace that both inspires you and keeps you healthy throughout the work day.
Finding an office space can be both exciting and stressful. It needs to have the necessities for you to be able to operate daily and have an aesthetic that promotes productivity and innovation among your team. It also has to be on budget, especially for small businesses and startups. You need to grow your company and it’s vital that the space you’ll be in all day stimulates that thought – without emptying your wallet.
