There are Some Real Clowns in our Office Space Toronto

It seems that there are some real clowns in our office space Toronto. Yes, I am talking about the kind of clowns with red noses and big shoes. These are special clowns that will be marching this Sunday in the Santa Claus Parade. For the past few years a few of our Toronto office space tenants have secretly been dressing up as clowns and have been part of the annual Santa Claus Parade as Celebrity Clowns. This year, they came out and told a few other office for rent tenants about this in a bid to recruit a one more person to join them. Being a Celebrity Clown does not just take buying a clown costume and a pair of big shoes, it takes a lot of heart and love of people. Most people have no problems walking the almost 6 km parade route, but try walking that distance in shoes that are twice as ...

Don’t Just Visit One Office Space Toronto, Visit a Few

When you are looking for a new car you will often research several options and test drive at least two of those options. When you are looking at a new home you will research a number of properties and ask to view several of those properties. But for some reason many small business owners will rely on the internet or a broker to find their best office space Toronto options – and only plan to visit one or two that, according to their websites, look the best when it comes to online appearance and affordability. The fact is that narrowing your search to only one or two office space visits could make you miss out on that Toronto office space that is perfect for your company or organization. Case #1 A potential office space Toronto for rent client contacted a commercial real estate broker to hel...

How people at our Office Space Toronto Find Truth on the Internet

A lot of people believe that if it is on the internet it must be true. That is why urban legends spread so fast on the internet. When people at our office space Toronto get e-mails and links with odd-sounding stories that sound too good to be true, they verify the story with Snopes. While snopes.com is the definitive Internet reference source for urban legends, folklore, myths, rumours and misinformation, there really is no “Ministry of Truth” on the internet. Some people want to encourage search providers to be proverbial Ministries of Truth, however, skeptics say that this could open the door to broader speech controls and other unintended consequences. When searching for office space Toronto or Toronto office space, some people will find the various ads at the top of the sea...

Google Recognized Importance of Downtown Toronto Office Space

Internet search and advertising giant Google is cutting back its sprawling offices located outside Toronto in the 905 area, consolidating in Toronto’s downtown core and opening new head offices within easy reach of downtown condos. The reason for this move is to facilitate the ability to find young talent and to retain employees who have purchased or are looking to purchase condominiums in the downtown core. Companies today are increasingly accepting the higher downtown core rents in exchange for the value of more centrally located downtown Toronto office space where they can draw from the pool of young, highly educated workers moving into newly built condos that are rising in the city’s centre. The fact is that young people aren’t happy with the long commute to and from the suburbs....

Keeping yourself safe from flu at your Toronto office space for rent

Yes, it is cold and flu season again. While many people are being reminded to get the flu shot, there are also other ways to help protect yourself against influenza, especially by reducing your exposure to germs and viruses around your Toronto office space. Would you believe that it is more likely that your office desktop harbours more germs and bacteria than the office bathroom? The bathroom is routinely cleaned with disinfectant while your office desk and other surfaces in your office space Toronto may not be. How often have you cleaned your keyboard? It is said that your keyboard is potentially dirtier than the average office toilet seat. Think of the potential E. coli and staph germs on your keyboard, your fingers and even on your phone! A U.S. study showed that most people they polled...

Planning Your Toronto Office Space is Just as Important as Your Business Plan

There is an old saying “plan to succeed; not planning is planning to fail.” In the past, when starting a new business, you had to have a business plan as a written guide outlining what your goals are. But today, you should also have a plan drafted that will help you find your office space environment. Planning your Toronto office space is just as important as your business plan. The first step in planning your office space Toronto is to go back to your business plan and determine how much you have budgeted for your Toronto office space rental. This is not your overall office budget – just the rental or lease portion of it. Then start your search for your Toronto office space for lease. Once you have a shortlist of Toronto office spaces that fit your budget and needs, plan to visit them and...

Today is Election Day in the USA and many office space Toronto clients are watching

Today is Election Day in the USA and many office space Toronto clients are watching. Why? Because the U.S. is our closest and most important trading partner. I am trying to find examples where foreigners have watched other countries’ elections as much as Canadians watch U.S. elections. There are many office space Toronto clients who are American citizens that have come to Canada to do business, but there are just as many Canadian-owned businesses that are concerned with the political climate in the U.S. and how it effects the way they do business with U.S. business partners. Without going into politics, some office space Toronto customers believe that a Democratic Party win will help and benefit their businesses. Others believe that a business-favouring Republican victory will help t...

Movember has arrived at office space Toronto

Thursday being the first of November and the day after Halloween, one would expect the coffee room talk at our office space Toronto to be about Halloween and the costumes that either their kids wore or the ones that showed up at the door trick or treating. Nope not this year! It seems the discussion was focused on Movember and how people were going to participate. Yes, it’s Movember, the month of sprouting moustaches to raise funds and awareness for men’s health. Every November in Canada since 2004, Canadians have joined the Movember movement that is responsible for the growth of thousands of moustaches on men’s faces around the world. The purpose is to raise money and awareness of prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives. This year Movember has arrived at office space Toro...

Business Centers Should Listen to their Tenants – Office Space Toronto does

Office business centers are becoming more and more popular because tenants want to be treated as clients and customers by those who have office for rent Toronto. More business centers should listen to their tenants. Office space Toronto does this and has much happier tenants for that reason. In traditional office spaces, companies pay their rent and almost never see the landlord or his/her representative. Yes, when things are broken they may see a repair person or building maintenance staffer, but rarely anyone that will take the initiative and make constructive suggestions of what can be done to fix the situation immediately. Questions, concerns, comments and suggestions often take a long time to be addressed or to be brought to the attention of the person or persons who can actually make...

Still no Frankenstorm but Superstorm Sandy is Sure Packing a Punch

There has been a big media buzz for the past 4 days about a Frankenstorm that would occur when Hurricane Sandy came inland and ran into arctic winds from Canada’s Northwest. So far Sandy is no longer a hurricane and is now just a post-tropical cyclone that has been re-labelled a Superstorm because of the sheer size of the storm formation. Many people at Telsec’s office space Toronto were skeptical about the Frankenstorm, but this superstorm sure packed some winds overnight. While some of the neighbourhoods surrounding the downtown (the horseshoe as Toronto Hydro calls them) are experiencing blackouts due to downed trees and other flying debris, the downtown area where hydro lines are primarily underground is not expected to experience any power outages. This is good news for many Toronto o...
