Hiring Staff vs. Fully-Serviced Office Space

Posted by Robert Blaker on Jun 2, 2015 4:10:39 PM


If you have a small business or startup, you probably know that the initial costs of starting your business on its path to growth can be astounding. From getting small business legal advice, to securing office space and hiring staff, there are many significant expenses in the first stages of starting a business.

The Expense of Staffing

One of the high costs of an expanding small business is office staffing. Hiring staff for your small business is often a necessary, yet expensive step toward growth. If you have a long-term lease in a traditional office space, it can be a challenge to be able to afford the help that you may need. Administrative assistants, a network administrator, and maintenance/cleaning staff may be required for your small business to run smoothly.

Don’t Try to Do It All Yourself

Many times, entrepreneurs are in denial that the cost of an administrative assistant is worth it. An administrative assistant can be a valuable asset to a hard-working entrepreneur by taking some of the burdens of running a small business away from them. Having an administrative assistant to do things like answer calls, take messages, and greet visitors can save you valuable time and help your business look more professional. The truth is, many entrepreneurs are willing to forgo the costs of hiring staff at the expense of their sanity and the potential growth of their business.

Simplify Your Small Business with a Full-Service Space 

As an entrepreneur, you may be handling every aspect of your business. Emails, phone calls, sales, bookkeeping, etc. A full-service office space can help keep the expense of office staffing down by providing administrative assistants, IT staff, maintenance, and cleaning staff as a benefit of leasing the space. A full-service office can allow you to save money every month by eliminating the entire process of paying and hiring staff.

Full-service office spaces can allow you to grow your business by providing flexible space that can grow with your business, as well as the support of a fully staffed office.
