Loadshedding… The New Normal For SMME's

Individuals, freelancers and small, medium and micro-enterprises (SMMEs) are the economic lifeblood of our country. These sectors are providing employment to more than eight million South Africans spread across close to five million formal and informal busineses, contributing 40% turnover of all enterprises in the country (www.iol.co.za)

Whenever we hear the words LOAD SHEDDING, we cannot help but have feelings of despondency and frustration, particularly to businesses that are housed in homes or buildings that do not have alternative power solutions, like a generator or solar system.

Small businesses without power back-up face reduced efficiency and resultant potential loss of productivity and income during load shedding, as in most cases they require electricity to function and run their operations.

Working from home or a stand-alone office places untold pressure on the small business to ensure that all the required costly infrastructure is in place. Finding a solution to load-shedding just adds another challenge that in many cases appears insurmountable, exposing the enterprise to questionable sustainability.

Rather than investing in long-term commitments, furniture, connectivity, office equipment and backup power, or alternative options, using an Office Co. flexible workspace alleviates that pressure, as the vital infrastructure is all provided, in a work environment conducive to productivity and efficiency.

From free ultra-fast fibre to video conferencing, reception, refreshment, break-away & lounge facilities, to secure access and parking, flexspace and co-working environments are becoming a vital component to ensuring the longevity of small businesses in these challenging times.

At Office Co. we are always ON, providing a flexible workspace that is convenient and gives you the confidence and peace of mind of being able to continue work and remain focused during load shedding, rather than worrying about what will happen when the power goes out.
