Is your smartphone buzzing in your pocket? Are you checking your email while in line at the post office? It is evident now more than ever before that the traditional office space for small businesses may soon go the way of rotary phones.
The end of the office?
John Boitnott explores this idea in an article for Inc.: “The End of the Office? How Working From Anywhere is Changing Everything” Technological changes over the past 15 years have pushed the definition of an “office” to anywhere there is an internet connection. Increasingly, this means that entrepreneurs and small business owners work on-the-go. John writes, “As the ‘work anywhere’ trend continues to grow, professionals will have more freedom than ever. They’ll no longer be chained to a desk eight hours a day, allowing them to be more productive and more reachable when they’re needed.”
Do you still need a professional presence?
Working anywhere doesn’t necessarily mean that you want to meet clients at Starbucks, which is exactly why the trend toward coworking and shared office space continues to grow. Headroom firmly believes that a professional presence can make a huge difference for a consultant or small business owner. Shared office space provides the perfect combination of low overhead costs and value-added resources that will directly lead to strong business growth.
At modern coworking spaces you do not have to give up professional, contemporary conference rooms or the efficiency of larger training rooms. For example, here at HeadRoom we offer spaces of varying size. Whether you need a two-person interview room or a 20+ person presentation room, look for shared office space that can accommodate your business needs.
