offices in Mississauga and Ottawa.

Pain Point: Managing Office Space

Businesses evolve over time. Changing economic climates and markets can force businesses to have to make necessary adjustments. Learning or relearning how to manage an office space full of employees returning to the workplace is extremely challenging. From configuring your office space to meet your needs and maximize space efficiency to ensuring the safety and comfort of your employees, there are a lot of adjustments that need to be made.

Solution: Invest in a Rental Office Space in Ottawa or Mississauga 

Day offices for rent in Ottawa or Mississauga offer just the right amount of support your business needs to function successfully. For employees that aren’t ready to fully make the leap back into full-force office life, renting offices and meeting spaces by the day or hour is an affordable and feasible solution for their peace of mind and your bottom line.

Pain Point: Inconsistent IT Support 

Businesses need a consistent, reliable, and stable IT infrastructure that offers complete network security at all times. Managing your business’s IT requirements when all of your employees are working remotely from different locations is downright impossible. You made it work throughout the course of the pandemic out of sheer necessity. But now that office spaces are opening back up, it’s important to secure a strong central network connection that’s impervious to external threats. 

Solution: Rent an Office Space with an Existing IT Infrastructure 

Modern offices rely heavily on state-of-the-art IT infrastructures and management to fulfill their day-to-day tasks. These days, renting a furnished office space in Ottawa or Mississauga means having access to all of the latest technological equipment and accessories you need to successfully run your business. At Innovative Professional Offices, our sophisticated IT network setups ensure that your business will always have a secure and well-monitored online connection. 

Pain Point: Managing Your Mail and Packages 

A professional business address sends a certain positive message about your organization. Not only does it elicit the notion that your business is extremely successful, but it also creates a sense of trust between you, your clients, and your peers. Managing the large influx of daily letters and packages that your business receives can be time-consuming and challenging. As important as this task is, it’s also something that a lot of business executives don’t have time to do. In the past, you’d have to hire an entire mailroom team or an assistant to handle this for you, but that can cost a lot of money.

Even if you continue to work remotely from home or anywhere else, renting an official mailbox makes it look like you have a permanent business address. Moreover, it guarantees that all of your business mail will be carefully handled, stored, and forwarded to you directly.

Pain Point: Lack of Business Support 

Every business owner needs a certain level of support to help get them started in their chosen industry. In many ways, returning to the office and trying to re-establish a certain routine and sense of normalcy can feel a lot like starting from scratch. It’s been almost two years since many of us have even stepped into an office building and getting back into the swing of things will definitely take some time.

Pain Point: Unprofessional Meeting Spaces 

There’s nothing worse than spending a lot of time and money on renting a meeting space only to find that they don’t provide you with the basic furnishings, office supplies, and equipment that you need to successfully conduct a meeting. Planning work conferences and meetings is made a lot easier when you have everything you need including office supplies and technology at your disposal to work with. Without these items, conducting a meeting is next to impossible.

Pain Point: Shrinking Your Office Footprint to Match Your Reduced Staffing Needs 

Now is the time to start rethinking your office space square footage and configuration requirements to accommodate your reduced staffing needs. Some employees will want to continue working from home full-time while others may only want to return to the office on a part-time basis or on a rotating schedule. It’s important to take all of these scenarios into consideration and respect the decisions that your employees make while also maximizing the value of your office space.
