Yesterday was spent viewing and discussing new premises for the business. We have now been trading for nearly 18 months and up to now have had no ‘real’ premises. The offices we’re really nice and I’m pretty excited at the thought of having somewhere like that to call ‘ours’. We looked at a serviced office a short distance from my house in a really nice business centre which is hopefully within our budget. I was very surprised how many things were not included in the price considering it’s supposed to be serviced, I always assumed (probably wrongly) that serviced meant you got everything for one price so you knew where you were financially. Costs not included were things like electricity, water, phone line rental and silly things like use of the photocopier and such. All in all though we were impressed with the facilities and think it will give the company a more professional look and help to win new business. The office is also going to help team communication, allow us to solve problems quicker by being all together and aid knowledge sharing. Morale will also be stronger and we’ll have more of a sense of being part of a team rather than individuals working from home. All of this can only be good for our clients.
