A corporate office building is beneficial for reasons that not everyone may realize. For example, it is much more than merely finding a space to label as your company home-base. There are many reasons why calling a shared office building home is beneficial including, culture-wide support of healthy work/life balance, lower stress levels, sense of community, positive company perception, and team building.
A healthy workspace allows for better work results and a stable environment for your employees to focus on their work. With more companies moving to a remote work environment, many employees are beginning to realize the impact of staying home all day. Sure, there may be benefits to working from home, however there are also majo
r drawbacks that may contribute to a skewed work life balance. For example, an individual who is working from home full time may lose sight of when to put down their work and focus on family or personal extracurricular activities. This could easily result in burnout, which ultimately leads to disinterest and less thoughtful/productive work. Working in an office space allows for your employees to feel refreshed daily and enables for their minds to leave work, at work, prolonging longevity and positivity of their work.
Studies show that working in a designated setting allows for employees to feel less overwhelmed and can increase productivity without having the distractions of all other items pertaining to their daily routine.
Providing employees a common workspace will lead to less stress due to being able to collaborate and pivot amongst managers and colleagues. It is much easier to revert to individuals in close proximity rather than communicating via phone, email, or other platform. These interactions also appear less formal and more inviting for a discussion than an alternate, digital communication method.
If an office building is clean and orderly, your employees will grow to become more comfortable and efficient. At Edgewood Pointe Towers, we offer full custodial services to ensure your staff can focus on the required tasks.
One of the benefits of the Edgewood Pointe Towers is the community we offer. Through amenities such as Kitchens, Java Bars, and common areas, your team can network with other like-minded professionals in the space.

The way clients and other professionals view your business is important. Location and environment of your office building are critical to marketing yourself and your company in a positive manner. If you do not have an office building or if you do not have a public workspace available for employees, applicants may be hesitant to apply. Uncertainty of routine can be daunting to some, and providing a stable, consistent workspace can help with sourcing top candidates. If an office building or workspace is inviting and in a prestigious location, new employees will be eager to apply and retention of existing employees will increase.
Offering a common location for all employees to work allows your management team to keep an eye on efficiency, progress, and overall employee morale. Maintaining an eye on workload and employee efficiency will be beneficial in the event a helping hand is needed, or if individuals may be able to tackle additional responsibilities. This internal insight is beneficial when getting to know your employee and their work habits.
Team building is important when it comes to running a company, as the more people working together allows for a greater outcome! This allows for clearer communication, trust within various departments, and enhances company culture and the outcome of a positive work environment.
