Does It Matter Where We Work?

By Griffin Suber on 09.14.16

As with the rest of society, modern technology has changed the way we do business. We work through clouds now; we communicate via dropboxes and video conferencing. Our new digital tools make it so easy to connect remotely that face-to-face interactions, and putting on a tie or makeup to do so, can seem more like a chore than a necessity. Not all companies are created equal and not all employees interact with clients (or each other) on a daily basis. The ease of remote accessibility has led to a spike in telecommuters and many young organizations are taking note of the advantages.

Small Businesses: Things You Need to Know When Renting Office Space

By Griffin Suber on 06.22.16

So you’ve done it: you started your own business. You’ve taken the leap. The next steps can be as exciting as they are terrifying but now that your organization has taken off, it and you will need to adapt on the fly. The name of the game is efficiency and that means spending money on the things you need and saving on the things you don’t. Young companies, in their eagerness to get to work, too often fall into traditional models of doing business which can trap capital, stifle growth and leave employees ill-equipped to do their job.

Navigate Office Dining & Drinking Like a Pro

In a country where only one in three workers take a lunch break (away from their desks) it’s easy to forget basic dining etiquette when on the job. It’s even easier to forget how to carry ourselves at happy hours or out of office meals with the team in a work culture where socialization and work-life balance often go to the wayside.

Good For You: Finding the Right Office Space to Fit Your Needs

By Lee Rolandi on 08.27.15

While we have seemingly endless apps and websites available to use as a resource for just about anything, with so many resources at our disposal, a task like finding office space can quickly become quite daunting. Because physical office space is such a large expense, educating yourself as much as possible and starting early are vitally important. Not only do you need to determine the needs of your business at present, but you also have to consider its future. AdvantEdge can help assist along the way and ensure you make the best decision for both your company and your employees.

When it comes to determining the office space needs of your business, it’s most important to stay realistic. Try not to over- or underestimate - your business’s future capacity by allowing yourself enough time to evaluate the needs of your employees, your future business plans, and by doing your research thoroughly. Once you’ve nailed down the roadmap of your business plan, a good place to turn to amidst your search are the tried and true resource of real estate brokers. While you can search for space on any site or app, brokers understand the current conditions of the real estate market for your city and can help you make better informed choices about a building or market than you would be able to on your own. This is particularly helpful if you’re trying to set up an office in an area that you may be unfamiliar with. Online reviews and social media, when mixed in with expert opinions from your broker, are also good resources for getting the feel of a space. These tools can provide insight into the quality of the customer service you would receive, building amenities, and current tenant satisfaction.
