Function over fashion is an oft cited piece of business advice, but there are times when you simply need to look attractive to potential clients – from your products or services to the way your office looks. The latter may not seem like a big deal, but if you’re bringing someone in for a meeting and you want to impress them, you’re not going to do that if your office has the stifling appearance of an accountancy firm.
Location fixation - First, you might want to consider the location of your office and the views it offers from the window. High vantage points offer great vistas of a city, overlooking water has a pleasant effect, and being able to see iconic landmarks is also a plus. If you’re in Sydney, an office suite with views over Circular Quay can tick all these boxes; sure, you’ll pay more for the view but the look on your visitors’ faces will be worth it and suddenly you’ve turned a hardened salesman into a cooing tourist.
Technology – Keeping up with fashion is not just about appearance. Renting IT equipment, that dates so quickly anyway – is an easy way to make sure your computers, printers and other technical needs keep up with the changes in the industry. This means you can have the best equipment in your office while it’s still the best and never have to worry about yesterday’s model.
Interior - Of course, this effect may wear off after a few visits so you need to make sure the interior of your office gives off positive vibes too. Following fashion is often thought of for the clothing industry but colours and furniture styles also change with the seasons and your office should too. This can be tricky, and expensive, if you buy all your furniture outright, but if you make use of office furniture rental you can chop and change on a regular basis. Not only will this keep your workspace fresh for your visitors but it also prevents the stale feeling some employees feel from being in the same work environment for too long.
When you rent office equipment you also remove the worry of storing, repairing and removing items that are no longer fully functioning or in need. Renting space to keep your old desks does not make financial sense, and having people working on selling or shipping out your old furniture is probably not the best use of their time.
Everyone likes to take pride in their appearance and there’s no reason that a company should be any different.
