As we gradually leave our home to deconfine, we must all think of resuming our professional activity. Indeed, this period was often synonymous with a drop in activity and loss of turnover due to the lack of customers, contacts, sales …
Of course, many of us have not stopped working, including working from home.
Let us also pay tribute to all the professions which, every day since March 13th, work to help and save us: nursing staff, firefighters, garbage collectors, cashiers in supermarkets …
For all the other professionals (start-ups, VSEs-SMEs, freelancers, subsidiaries of large groups …) who have suspended their activities, the economic and social situation brings up many questions: will I be able to continue my activity ? Will I be able to pay my employees / my suppliers / my expenses / my rent?
Indeed, financial obligations are an obvious weight in the day to day life of a company and this last episode of confinement will have brought to light new difficulties that professionals did not foresee until now.
Thus, the past six weeks have shown that rents and charges relating to the rental of business premises constitute a brake on activity. Will businesses be able to continue with commercial leases that bind them over three, six or nine years? If the periods of confinement are made more regular, will they be able to afford to lose the rent money while their figures are at half mast?
A new way of working will therefore emerge, both in terms of health and logistics.
Of course, to date, all companies are encouraged to work remotely so as to avoid the spread of the virus and a possible second wave of contamination. But a return to normal is looming and solutions exist to help companies rationalize their expenses.
The solution of renting workspaces in a business center represents a first-rate economic opportunity for professionals. No commitments, all-inclusive packages (furniture, mail, printing, calls to 42 destinations, daily cleaning and disinfection of spaces, access to on-site meeting rooms and discounts on additional services, etc.). All without obligation: any contract can be terminated under one month’s notice … No bad surprises!
Choosing to set up your business in a business center at the World Trade Center Marseille Provence, in Marseille or Paris, is saving time and money to focus on the essential: making your business prosper.
In addition, to guarantee the safety and health of all, the WTCMP business centers – which reopen today, the 11th of May – are already equipped: provision of hydroalcoholic gel (via infra=red contactless dispensers or in individual bottles), marking on the ground to facilitate circulation in buildings / in business centers, provision of disposable masks if necessary…
