Many people have the misconception that you need many things to have an office suite up and running. That’s true to a certain extent – as your company grows, so do your requirements for different things. However, when it comes down to the basic essentials, there are really three group of things that you absolutely need for your office suite to ensure your day to day operations run smoothly.
Furniture: As you and your employees are going to be spending at least 8 hours in the office, you would need to get furniture that is comfortable and durable for your office suite. Choose desks that are not too small or too large. Make sure it’s sturdy and provides storage space. Pair that up with ergonomic chairs. You would also need to get in a few file storage cabinets if there’s going to be a lot of paperwork in your office.
Internet: Reliable and high speed Internet is highly important in today’s workspaces. It’s a good idea to get a wireless router to connect to the Internet. Broadband–whether through your cable, DSL, or other provider–is definitely a good choice for an office suite to have uninterrupted connection all day long.
Devices: Photocopiers and printers are essential for everyday use. It’s best to get a multifunctional wireless copier that scans, prints, copies and emails in one device. This eliminates the need to get several devices that would clutter up your office suite. In the meeting room, you would probably need a projector. A screen is optional as you can probably use the wall as a screen.
Other than these basic essentials, you would probably need to get proper lighting, extra storage units as well as a water cooler for your employees to ensure a comfortable and well-equipped environment in your office suite.
