Small Office Tips



Small businesses all require space in which to conduct their business activities. Here are some great tips on how to make the most of whatever space you have to work in:

Maximise Storage: Ensure that you avoid silly errors when storing stock, stationery or files. Always fill boxes to capacity before filing them away, and do not over or under-fill them as this will lead to them tipping or collapsing. Make sure to clearly label them so that they can be found in the future.

Encourage flexibility: Although whenever it is possible you should plan your office to take into account the number of people you employ, sometimes you will have to change plans, especially if your company is growing quickly. Consider ‘hotdesking’, where employees are able to set up their workspace at any available position and then move on when they finish work.

Share resources: The smaller the office, the less rent your small business will have to pay. This is why it makes sense for you to share resources with the other employees of your company whenever possible. Especially for items such as printers which can be networked, there is no reason to waste space by having duplicates.

Consider ergonomics: Ergonomics is the science of work. It is important because human bodies were designed to move and being sat at a computer desk all day is totally unnatural. Ergonomic seating and workstation design is essential to avoid long-term injury risks.

Homeworking: The ultimate solution for any small business is to ditch the traditional office altogether and connect with staff and customers online from the comfort of a home office. It has never been easier to work without a central office, all you need are software applications like the ones that WinWeb provide.
