In our last blog we discussed the benefits of Toronto shared office space and how many businesses that work on the road or in the field find them to be an ideal touchdown office space – without the costs associated with a traditional office space rental. While shared offices can be a great solution for someone who does not need a desk to house their computer, or a filing cabinets for their printed files, Toronto semi-private offices are a great part-time office solution for a business that does not need a full-time office space Toronto.

Just like Toronto shared offices, Toronto semi-private offices give an office tenant an economical alternative to renting a private office if he or she cannot justify the expense. One reason some companies find Toronto semi-private offices are a great part-time office solution is that they have the benefits of an executive suite that is complete with a receptionist who answers and directs their calls, whether they are in their office or off site. Company personnel simply have to leave instructions with the receptionist on how they want their calls answered and handled. Another benefit of a semi-private office within an office business centre is that companies only need pay for the office equipment they use. They also have free access to Toronto meeting rooms and boardrooms within the facility.

When employees rent a Toronto semi-private office, they know that they are only sharing their office space with one other person – who like them is only using the office on a part-time basis and will rarely be in the office at the same time. Even when they are both in their office space Toronto at the same time, there is enough space within the office so that they are not tripping over each other. In many cases, two people who share a semi-private office will make a point of meeting so they can either schedule themselves around the other’s office time, or st least get to know each other better to make it easier to cooperate. There are even cases where two people sharing an office space have been able to network with each other and grow both their businesses.

An example of one semi-private office tenant: Company DEF is an independent software training company that conducts training sessions and seminars on behalf of software companies, as well as for companies or software user groups that want additional training on particular software programs. Often, the training sessions are held in a variety of locations throughout the region and sometimes even around the country. As an independent company, it needed Toronto office space to store its files and meet with customers and software developers from time to time. It also needed an office address and someone to answer its calls. After taking a Toronto semi-private office at Telsec, company officials learned of the seminar training room that was part of Telsec. What interested them the most was that they could rent the training room at a discounted price compared to the rate that was offered to non-office-space tenants.
