Managing a business is challenging even in the best of times; trying to navigate a post-COVID-19 world without the proper support or equipment is downright impossible.
While many people have accepted the challenge of working from home to prevent the spread of the virus, there’s no doubt that this can take a toll on productivity, mental health, and even professionalism. There is another solution that could work for working professionals who are having a hard time working remotely: renting a temporary fully furnished private office in Mississauga or Ottawa.
Why Should You Consider Renting a Private Office during the Pandemic?
On the surface, it may seem a little counterintuitive to rent a furnished private office rather than continuing to work from home in the midst of a global pandemic, there are actually quite a few advantages of doing this.
Adhering to Social and Physical Distancing Protocols
The whole point of renting a private office is to give you the privacy you need to get work done in your own space with little to now interruptions or disruptions. Office rental companies are forced to follow strict social and physical guidelines, which include occupancy limits and spacing restrictions.
Additionally, special in-depth cleaning services are in place to ensure that all common surfaces throughout the office space are sanitized on a regular basis. All office personnel are required to wear a mask or any other form of PPE in common areas and are asked to wash or sanitize their hands frequently. Hand sanitizing stations are made widely available throughout the office space for the sake of convenience and to encourage frequent use.
Save Money with Flexible Lease Terms
Office space rental companies want to accommodate the needs of their clients and address their valid health and safety concerns. That’s why at Innovative Professional Offices, we offer flexible lease terms so that you only pay for the time you use at our Mississauga or Ottawa locations.
All bookings are adequately spaced out, so that we have enough time to thoroughly sanitize the premises in between appointments.
Access to Office Amenities
When you rent a temporary private office, you get access to a number of useful amenities, such as:
- Welcoming reception
- Administrative support
- Boardroom and meeting room rentals
- Private executive offices
Motivation to be More Productive
Working from home isn’t necessarily all it’s cracked up to be. Unrelenting distractions like the sight of unfinished household chores and children needing help with their digital classes, not to mention spouses who are also trying to work from home can negatively impact your concentration and productivity levels—especially if you live in a small space.
Many professionals thrive when they’re in their corporate element surrounded by other people who are also working—at a safe distance, of course. There’s something about getting dressed in the morning and going into the office to work that just gets the creative and productivity juices flowing in a way that sitting at home in sweatpants at your kitchen table just doesn’t.
A Nice Change of Scenery
Being cooped up at home all the time isn’t good for your mental health. Getting back into the swing of things while continuing to adhere to health and safety protocols can give you a much-needed sense of purpose that contributes to, and drives, your overall work ethic.
Prolonged lockdown has been proven to have a profound and significant negative impact on many people’s mental and physical health. Depending on the previous state of your mental health coupled with your socioeconomic predisposition and the availability of essential resources in your area, this type of stressful situation can affect you in different ways.
Some people get solace from throwing themselves into their work to take their minds off of the situation while also continuing to provide for their families. But it can be hard to do that when you’re constantly at home and reminded of everything that’s going on.
Renting a furnished private office in Mississauga or Ottawa can help you feel like you’re back in your element and ready to take on the day’s tasks again.
Maintain a Professional Image
Even though most client and employee meetings are being held virtually these days, there’s still something to be said for maintaining a strong professional image. One of the benefits of working from a fully furnished private office in Mississauga or Ottawa is that you don’t have to worry about being interrupted by your family.
Plus, you have access to all of the professional office equipment, amenities, and support that you need to help you succeed and get work done.
That leads to the next point. Breakrooms, office supplies, furniture, and other equipment such as printers, computers, teleconferencing devices, whiteboards, and anything else you need to run your business are all made available to you at no additional cost.
Take Advantage of Technological and Customizable Solutions
At the end of the day, this is your office space so we encourage you to make it your own. Do whatever you need to do to make the workspace work for you. Your comfort is our number one priority.
That’s why we offer customizable office space solutions to fit your needs. From specific office setups to décor and providing access to certain office amenities, everything is included in the cost of your rental package. Plus, you’ll have access to reliable, secure, and fast Wi-Fi. Our experienced IT team is always on standby to set up network connections and troubleshoot any connectivity issues or disruptions.

Choose from affordable hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly rental packages. And, you can choose which amenities you want to include in your rental package based on need and cost.
