The high cost of maintaining an office can make or break a business, especially if that business is located at the heart of the corporate universe: Washington D.C. Fortunately, there are a number of DC office spaces available for rent on an on-demand basis that can meet the needs of any size business. Since your business is only charged for the days or times that you use the space, this frees up valuable capital that can be reinvested in operating costs, or in increasing your business.
One key area where making use of an on-demand DC office space can save a company significantly is the cost of staffing. While there’s no way around staff salaries, not having to spend large sums on office space that is not going to be used daily can reduce expenses by several hundreds of dollars, or more.
In addition to reducing overhead costs, the ability to telework also increases employee productivity by creating a more positive work environment, one that is customized to the needs of each employee. More productive employees equals better quality of work, which in turn increases profits that can be used to expand to a new location.
On-demand office spaces are staffed by trained professional administrative support personnel, which could save additional money by eliminating the need for a full-time administrative assistant.
DC Office Space Helps Businesses Cut Operational Costs
Another advantage of choosing DC office space for your business is that it eliminates the need to furnish an office, and to pay for things like phone lines and other technology. There are a range of fully furnished office spaces to accommodate any employee, from entry level to CEO, each equipped with phone lines with voicemail, fax lines, High speed and wireless Internet service, and all the amenities of the successful working office.
Offices can also be customized to include multi-line phones and remote network monitoring capabilities, among other options. Even the need for the traditional water cooler and employee coffee fund is taken care of thanks to the availability of kitchen lounges, or you can have Starbucks coffee and bottled spring water provided for your office. Maintenance and janitorial service can be included into a customized DC office space, meaning all your bases are covered for less.
DC Office Space is Convenient, Saves Time
Finally, deciding to make use of on-demand office space will save your company executives time, by eliminating the need for so many people to be gathered in one spot managing staff. Instead of having three or four managers on-site to look after things in the office, those people are now able to spend their time meeting with potential new clients, working on other projects, or researching new ways to improve and increase business for the company.
Additional time is saved by eliminating the need to commute to and from an office daily, which not only benefits the employee and the business, but also the environment in general.
By choosing to partner with a DC office space provider when you need space for meetings, training seminars, or other events, you will provide your business with all of the advantages and amenities of a traditional office, without the overhead expenses. These savings can then be put back into the company, where it can be used in a variety of beneficial ways.
