Advantages of having office space in London include easy access to corporate cleaning services – it is said that London is the easiest city in Europe in which to do business and one of these has to be the low cost and easy availability of support services when they are needed.
A business can choose serviced offices, where offices are fully furnished and the tenants have access to additional spaces such as conference rooms as and when required. This can be an affordable option for a new, small business when it is first starting out.
The facilities management will have responsibility for corporate cleaning including any that may be required at the end of their tenancy when they have grown and are ready to move on, perhaps to bigger London premises.
For the larger business, London is the city of choice for a variety of reasons.
The capital city has more international banks than any other city. More than 70% of the FTSE 100 is located in London. It is at the centre of European, Asian and US time zones.
More than 100 of Europe’s 500 largest companies are headquartered in central London and 75% of Fortune 500 companies have offices in London.
Access to some of the world’s largest accountancy firms, media companies and publishing groups can be an important consideration when considering where to base the head offices for a global,
European or UK-wide company.
Equally, since hospitality to visiting clients from other countries may be important to the success of the business and there is a wide range of options for entertaining visitors, not only in the many fine places there are to eat, but also in the range of cultural opportunities on offer.
These include 240 museums, more than 100 art galleries including the world-famous Tate Modern, not to mention more than 100 West End Theatres.
8,000 acres of parkland offer places to pause, to reflect and get tome fresh air when the business negotiations are becoming intense.
Of course, making a good impression on visitors when large contracts are being negotiated depends on attention to all kinds of detail and this includes the quality of the corporate cleaning in the London offices.
While it may not be something a visitor would comment on, or perhaps even consciously notice a clean, comfortable and orderly environment is the background to smoothing the path of business negotiation.
At CleanForce we take very seriously the impact of having a clean office environment has on your visitors and the importance of good quality corporate cleaning services is sometimes under-estimated – not by us!
