Office space directly effects a company’s ability to attract and retain talent. With commercial real estate prices on the rise and vacancy at an all-time low, finding the perfect office space is becoming increasingly complex. At Apex, we tailor solutions for each client by assessing their needs and goals and providing workspace solutions that best suit your organization.
But how do you bring in more people to a space that is already at max capacity? Office reconfiguration is an excellent alternative to finding additional office space, especially as commercial real estate availability continues to drop. While remote working and telecommuting can be a great way to introduce additional team members, there will be times when everyone is required to be in the same space.
In today’s market, maximizing your organization’s square footage is more crucial than ever. Small misuses of floor space will add up to large long-term real estate waste. At Apex, we work with our clients to build flexible, functional workspaces so their employees can thrive.
