Singapore Private Office Spaces
When choosing your flexible workspace, you’ll be considering just how much privacy you want in your workspace. On the high end of the scale? But still wanting a short-term lease and flexible benefits? Private offices are another popular option. You can still get the best of both worlds by landing a rental in a room separate from the open office. Private offices are a promising option for these demands.
A private office is an enclosed space that comes either in the form of a room or through the use of dividers. They can exist as a standalone or within a wider office space to offer workers the option to work away from the hustle and bustle of an open office.
Private offices are particularly useful to fairly grown businesses looking for some permanency but not a full-lease commitment. It is typical for executives to have private offices separate from the open office. Private offices can also be used by groups of people, so they may be useful to special project groups. While collaboration and inspiration are useful in projects, privacy from the competition is also valuable. As is the limiting of distractions to executives, groups and workers in many other situations.
Where can you find private offices in Singapore?
Private offices are most commonly found in central business districts, a prime location for commerce. Because private offices are more costly to maintain and take up more space, they are more commonly found in huge commercial buildings and office towers.
Why choose a private office?
Not everyone works best in an open environment where distractions can easily interrupt one’s work. Although collaborating with people is important, there are times when people need focus to get things done or they need privacy to discuss more sensitive matters.
Based on a survey conducted by Oxford Economics, employees rank the ability to focus and work without interruptions as the most important factor of a good work environment. A study conducted on workplace distractions found similar results; 52% of employees say they’re more productive when not working in a noisy environment and 38% of them say they prefer having designated workplaces for quiet and noisy work.
Looking at these numbers, it seems that while it is important to encourage collaboration and communication within a workplace, providing employees with an option to work in private is just as important. Especially in 2020, where group gatherings are a health hazard, it is important to revisit the value of working in private offices.
Here are some benefits to using a private office
The main benefit you’d get with a private office is, as the name suggests, privacy. Having a space separate from the main office or other businesses sharing the facility can be useful for many reasons. Perhaps a small team will need withdrawal to achieve better concentration in a private office. Sometimes the level of peace and quiet needed is only achieved in a separate room. Confidential work and discussions will have a place to be taken part in as well.
Having a private office means you can decorate the place as you wish. With no one else using the space, you can personalise it to your liking and increase your productivity depending on your preferences. Adjust the lighting, listen to music, or even put on aromatherapy. Plus, nothing says “official” like personal office spaces and tidy office rooms. There’s no better way to own your flexible workspace than to add a personal touch to the room.
Freedom from distractions
Being enclosed in a space all on your own will definitely minimise the number of distractions you face on a daily basis. This helps maintain your focus on the tasks at hand, which ultimately, saves you time. After all, it takes an average of 23 minutes and 15 seconds to get back to your task after being distracted (Gloria Mark).
Hand in hand with better privacy also comes better security. One smaller, lockable room is much easier to keep track of and protect than a large open plan office. When it comes to business and special projects, privacy is always important to minimise the risk of having information, money, or important equipment stolen.
Enhanced collaboration for small teams
Private offices aren’t only for individuals, small teams also use them. Whereas open offices help with big-group collaborations, private offices help small teams collaborate better by minimising the number of distractions and interruptions.
In certain organisations or companies, private offices come with a slew of benefits only granted to high performing individuals. This allows management to leverage from this premium and offer private offices as an incentive for those who deliver exceptional work.
