The world has become so small that it only takes a virtual call to connect us with the other side of the globe. Having said that, people still want to deal face-to-face. But, how can you do that and not spend a fortune on opening branches up all over the world? Satellite offices – that’s how!
What is a Satellite Office?
Essentially, a satellite office is a branch of a company that isn’t tied physically to the company’s head office, and most times isn’t at a location that the public would visit.
Why set up a Satellite Office?
A satellite office allows you to broaden your reach into possibly areas that you might not have been able to get into without setting up a large office arrangement. A satellite office gives you the flexibility for when you need to send staff out. Instead of them bumming off in a coffee shop, possibly not getting constructive work done, they can have a place to call home, as it were.
The collaboration aspect of satellite offices comes in when you set up in an already established office environment, such as a co-working or shared office organisation, like Office & Co.
Take the satellite office a step further, and set up a satellite team.
