Now that you’ve materialized your idea and have covered the paperwork as well as the finances, it’s now time for you to face the headache-causing process of finding the perfect office space for your business.
For years, architects have recognized the effect of your surroundings to how you work. Your workspace heavily influences your overall satisfaction and productivity. More tasks can be accomplished quickly and efficiently when you are able to focus. Moreover, the space containing your business can develop your company culture – something that is very hard to define and even harder to shape.
The right office space can also help people communicate better. And with the surge of tools like Skype or Hangouts, the chances of “lost in translation” happening is very high. Though there is no denying that the technology nowadays have helped us communicate with one another regardless of our location, nothing beats face-to-face interaction.
In addition to this, research have said that out of the 3 elements that contribute to communication – word choice, tone of voice and body language – 55% of it comes from body language. Finding a space that helps your team communicate better can convey vast amounts of information that may not be seen through “non-personal” communication.
