The sky is clear; temperatures are in the 80s; and while I am planning my family’s next beach vacation, I can’t help but think about Christmas. Even though it’s still summer, I’m planning my Christmas list early. This Christmas, all I really want is a receptionist.
The first time I visited my office, I got lost. After a year I can recognize that each of the brightly colored corridors is a different color and has a slightly different style. There are multiple entrances, exits, lounges and study areas. The door numbers are in descending order—odd on one side, even on the other. The space is large.
I am a professor, and when students come to visit my office they get lost. My directions include landmarks like turn right at the picture with the birds, go past the large sitting area, look at the numbers and ask someone for directions. Most of my guests arrive late.
Before the end of the semester I held office hours for each of the classes I teach. It turned out to be a disaster. As you may know, many students only visit office hours before the final exam, thus, not being familiar with the location of my office. Between students getting lost or running late and ,therefore, appointments running over, the meetings were extremely disorganized. Whenever I opened my door, the appointment for fifteen minutes prior was standing there with the appointment for fifteen minutes later.
I need a coordinator to lend support when I need it; to offer directions to guests and to corral my guests.
At BusinesSuites Hughes Landing, you don’t have to worry about clients (or students) losing their way. The friendly receptionist will direct your clients right to your office without absurd landmarks or having them stop half way for directions. The added efficiency and professionalism that comes with working at an executive suite is a valuable asset to any business.
