Moreover, your office is your information centre for all things related to your business. It stores records, it is a point of contact for staff and clients, alike. It chairs meetings, celebrates smashed targets, and has a quiet corner for coffee and contemplation on a difficult morning. The office is the hive from which everything in your business is central.
Aside from functioning as a space of high productivity and efficiency, an office space directly reflects the mission and vision of your business. Your interiors, brand colours, the logo etched on the entrance of your office all contribute to the overall vibe that your business emits. Hosting industry peers and leaders with professionalism in respectable surroundings builds confidence, business links and bolsters reputations.
