Posted by Erika Bizjak

Employee Appreciation Day may have been on March 3rd, but we like to color outside of the lines here at AdvantEdge and celebrate our associates when it feels right! It is not every day that a team decides to celebrate and commend one of its own without a push from upper management or the occurrence of a holiday, but the AdvantEdge crew recognizes a star when one is amongst us and we do not hesitate to show appreciation!

Body and Soul: How Shared Space Helps You Stay Healthy

Posted by Lee Rolandi

10.15.15

Sitting in the same office space all day, ever day, can make it abundantly clear why finding an environment that strikes a balance between productivity and comfort is crucial to the health of your employees and your business. As employees feel more obligated to be “plugged in” and “contactable” outside of the normal 9-5 routine, it is also critical for a business to find meaningful ways to promote the physical and mental health of its employees outside of the office as well. Shared office spaces and the ever-growing number of amenities they can provide are one solution that can keep your company happy and healthy without sacrificing efficiency.

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

Posted by Lee Rolandi

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.
