Is your office space aligned with your brand-identity?
Your workspace is a major contributor to your brand. Would you like to be associated with a fun and cool start-up vibe or does a more formal, buttoned up image suits your brand better?
You must have clear idea of your brand and how your office space portrays your image to the clients as well as to the employees. So how would your brand stand-out when you’re working in a shared office space?
The answer is through you and your team’s personality, character and what do you as a team represent or stand for.
