Given the steadily growing economy of the Philippines despite the pandemic, more and more groups and individuals from all over the world are starting to invest in the BPO industry. One very important factor in establishing a prolific BPO company is getting the right kind of commercial space to suit your needs.
With regards to the pandemic, a lot of other companies in the same industry still prefer to work in an office rather than remotely. Apart of course from network connections being more stable, there’s an undeniable environment of professionalism when it comes to working in the office as compared to working from home. In a nutshell, getting a commercial space for lease might be your best bet if you want your BPO to survive and thrive.
What exactly should you look for in a commercial space? Here are a few things to consider that are also some of the best features of Greenfield Tower in Mandaluyong.
Location, Location, Location
When it comes to getting an office for lease for BPO (or any other business that requires an official and physical address), it’s important to consider its location. How accessible is it to other amenities that can potentially benefit your workers? Would it be accessible to main roads and public transportation facilities? After all, most clients would want to work with a BPO that resides in major business districts like Makati, BGC or Manila.
As an example, Greenfield Tower is located in Mandaluyong and has multiple points of access. It's close to the EDSA MRT Station, making it just a few minutes away after a quick train ride. Through Shaw Boulevard, it’s easy to catch a ride to and from work as it is highly accessible to mass transportation systems like buses and jeeps.
Apart from being easily accessible, you need to make sure that the entire area has enough space to support social distancing with regards to the pandemic. Greenfield Tower has a lot of wide open spaces and avenues that can aid your employees in their effort to stay safe.
Lastly, you need to make sure that there are places of interest your employees can visit in case they want to celebrate or just relax after a long day of work. Greenfield Tower is just a short 5-10 minute walk away from Greenfield District, the area’s retail and dining destination. With several restaurants, shops, convenience stores and service centers, Greenfield District is a great place to hang out after work or if you want to build team rapport.
All The Space You’ll Need
When it comes to looking for an office to suit your company’s needs, it’s important to have a lot of space to work with. Given that there are strict requirements for BPOs specifically considering its fast-paced landscape and almost unforgiving competitiveness as an industry, an office needs to have all the space it needs to function optimally.
You also need to consider that space is a factor in determining if a property can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 or any other related diseases. Do you have enough space to maintain a healthy distance between co-workers? Is it wide enough to support pathways that help employees practice social distancing? You also need to make sure that you have enough space to house servers, several office departments, and temporary rest quarters for your employees.
Greenfield Tower has been masterfully planned and designed to meet these strict demands. The tower itself has a gross floor area of 65,764.54 square meters in a span of 28 floors with the 7th to 18th floors being considered the low zone, and the 19th to 27th levels being the high zone.Boasting roughly 2,500 square meters of floor space and having a ceiling height of about 3 meters, Greenfield Tower offers you the space you need to function as a well-oiled BPO machine.
You also need to consider the ventilation system of your future office space. Is it efficient enough to prevent the spread of any airborne disease? Are there systems in place that facilitate this kind of protection? Greenfield Tower is equipped with these systems, boasting openable windows and a fresh air ducting system that improves upon air circulation. It’s also equipped with a variable refrigerant flow air conditioning system that efficiently regulates the temperature based on your preferences.
Efficient Utilities That Run 24/7
Given the competitive nature of the BPO landscape, it’s important to make sure that your business is online 24/7. Losing a day to faulty utilities or bad Internet connection can mean millions of pesos lost in terms of revenue. This is why it’s important to make sure that your office space for lease has a system in place that can support emergency blackouts.
Being known as the future-ready community that’s gifted with telecommunications interconnectivity supported by a fiber optic Internet backbone, Greenfield District and Greenfield Tower possess the traits that most BPO companies would like to have. If you’re worried about your Internet provider giving you a headache because of intermittent signal loss or fluctuating speeds, you can be sure that Greenfield Tower’s state of the art fiber optic Internet infrastructure has your back.
In terms of electricity, Greenfield Tower is ready for any emergency that involves a major power outage. Because of its five units of 2000-kw capacity generator sets, it can supply 100 percent backup power when needed, making it one of the more resilient and favored commercial space providers for companies that compete in the BPO industry.
Of course, Greenfield Tower gives you more than just the assurance that your business won’t lose money to utility failure. It knows that your most valuable asset to your company are your employees and makes sure that they have the facilities they need to stay on point when at work. Apart from the restaurants and shops outside, there are amenities within the building that they can visit to clear their minds during their break times.
The Right Developer
At the end of the day, you’re looking for a commercial space for lease that has the above mentioned features. But more than that, you also need to make sure that you’re working with a developer whose values resonate with your company’s. Apart from the fact that you’re going into this partnership knowing full well that you know each other’s values, it also makes it easier for you to enforce certain policies that the building admin and its personnel can help enforce.
As an example, if your developer values environmental awareness and sustainability, then you’ll have an easier time enforcing a “clean as you go” policy in your company because, apart from having trash bins and receptacles everywhere, personnel will make sure that trash goes in the trash can. If your developer values health and safety as is required by the Philippine Labor Code, you won’t have a problem enforcing social distancing and making sure that people who enter your premises don't exhibit symptoms of COVID-19. At the end of the day, working with the right developer means providing the right kind of environment for the people you’re going to be working with.
