By |2022-01-19T16:50:03-05:00January 19th, 2022|Business Trends, Downtown Toronto Office Space, Growth & Innovation, Virtual Office|

The pandemic has forced organizations and start-ups to move operations to the virtual world. This has increased the demand for virtual office spaces, especially in the start-up and small business community. Virtual office spaces have helped small businesses and start-ups immensely during the pandemic. Through virtual office spaces, these companies can have a physical address and office-related services, thus helping the companies to save money they would have to spend for an office lease and administrative staff. Virtual offices give the company employees the freedom to work from anywhere, and in the meanwhile the company can still have a physical mailing address. Moreover, the company can also have a professional receptionist answering company calls and redirecting them to the intended employee. Virtual office spaces also come with perks such as quick access to meeting rooms and videoconferencing. Who Can Use Virtual Offices? People working from home requiring a professional presentation [...]

By |2022-02-28T12:41:52-05:00August 6th, 2019|Downtown Toronto Office Space, Office Space|

If you haven't been down to the Harbourfront area of Toronto in a while, you'll be quite surprised at all of the changes that are happening from Yonge Street to Parliament Street along Queen's Quay. While new buildings like Corus Quay (home of Corus Entertainment’s Radio, TV and educational content creations) and George Brown College have been completed for several years at their Sugar Beach location, more buildings are going up on the same property. Several new condos have also been completed and people have moved into the area west of the Redpath Sugar complex. And, more are being built. There are also plenty of other mixed-use buildings under construction along the north side of Queen's Quay. With all the development that's underway and more development planned for an area that was traditionally shipping docks, warehouses and light manufacturing, this growing area has truly come into its own as a [...]

Location, location, location! We’ve said it’s important so many times!

By |2021-11-05T12:55:11-04:00July 28th, 2016|Downtown Toronto Office Space, Growth & Innovation|

While a good office/business location is often emphasized and often even preached, have you really thought about the way your business location has affected the bottom line of your small business? One of our largest office space competitors, Regus, did some research on the topic of location that we thought we should share with our readers. Yes, Regus wants our location. But Telsec is not going to give up the number one address on Canada’s most famous street, One Yonge Street, where many businesses want to be located. So, Regus surveyed 19,000 business owners and found that more than 80% of those who responded stated that “customer retention rates can be increased by greater physical proximity to customers.” Almost as many respondents (78%) also said that “physical closeness to customers also helps solve customer problems and improve customer satisfaction levels.” If your customers are seeing a business address that is […]

Reasons why it may be time to abandon your current office space

By |2021-11-05T14:42:00-04:00March 29th, 2016|Coworking Office Space, Downtown Toronto Office Space|

Technology is evolving and changing rapidly. And perhaps the way the staff of your small business is working, has been evolving too! The Internet and access to Wifi are changing where work can be done. These factors and other technology are re-shaping the needs of business for traditional office space. Traditionally your workers required special tools and processes, and those tools were at the office workplace. Therefore, in order to work, you staff needed to commute from their home to that workplace. This has all changed, and now many more people are able to work from home and not take up valuable office real estate. According to a 2015 telecommuting statistics report published by GlobalWorkplaceAnalytics.com, the number of regular work-at-home employees has grown by 103% since 2005. Currently, nearly 4 million or 2.5% of workers are doing their jobs from the comforts of home at least half the time. Here are […]

Sometimes Choosing an Office Space Location is not Just About Geography

By |2021-11-04T14:07:07-04:00October 28th, 2015|Downtown Toronto Office Space, Shared Office Space|

Yes, the tried-and-true statement in business is often “Location, Location, Location” in terms of the address where you locate. But that is not the only factor that you need to consider when choosing an office space location. Sometimes choosing an office space location is not just about geography and the physical location of your office. There are a number of other factors you need to consider. Your office location is not only important to your customers and visitors, but it is also important to your staff. Hiring and retaining good employees can partly be due to the office location and preferred working environment of your staff. Look at Google Canada in Toronto. A few years back, Google moved from its suburban Mississauga location to office space in downtown Toronto. Why? Because they found that the young talent they wanted to attract preferred to live in downtown and not have to […]
