The idea of developing a new business is exciting; having the opportunity to provide a new product/service to the world (or a better/re-imagined version of a pre-existing product/service) is great, but isn’t without its own set of challenges. Ultimately, with hard work and perseverance, getting a new business off the ground can be achieved and maintained.
The environment which said business is conducted can truly help to make or break things. Location is important, but it goes beyond that. Here are some important considerations to make for those looking to develop a start-up company:
Your office represents what you do and serves as a fantastic branding tool. It should embody everything that your brand reflects. Branding your office will play into your work culture and reinforce the work principles your employees abide by. They should see your company’s brand all around them – from the location of the office to what they see when they walk into the office premises. Their work culture should be shaped by the brand they work for. This is also applicable to clients and customers who visit your office. With great branding, it will be far easier to gain customers’ confidence in your business abilities. Office environments and cultures have witnessed numerous revolutions over the past decade, courtesy of the startup trend. Office spaces that create an aura of comfort and motivation have been successful in fostering loyalty among employees. It is up to you as a leader of your business to make these important decisions that will help your business flourish.
You need to first understand which kind of office floor plan will best suit your business. Many recent, successful startups have adopted the open floor plan to foster employee bonding and team spirit. You could also consider open cubicles divided by partitions, which offer a considerable amount of visual privacy. Ensure that the windows are duly covered with blinds to filter the sunlight and to prevent outside noise from entering the office. Assigning adequate space to your employees is important. It is also important to set guidelines with regards to employees’ ability to personalize their work spaces. Make sure that your office has provisions for differently abled employees.’ (Fabrizio Moreira, lifehack.org)
