When people arrive at your business, you want them to get a good impression of the place. Making sure that your reception area provides them with that is important, so here are some of the things that you should think about when you are planning out your reception area…
Signage – As well as being a way to ensure that people can find the reception with ease, especially in a larger building, signage is also an important marketing tool, and will give your reception a professional appearance.
Security – It is important for your workplace to be safe and secure and part of this means having a system that you can sign visitors into and keep track of who is onsite. A visitor management system is a good way to ensure that your workplace is safe and sound.
Seating – People who come to a reception area will often need to wait for their appointment. This means that you should supply comfortable seating in keeping with the design and branding of your business. This means that people who have had a long trip, are nervously awaiting a job interview or simply want to sit in comfort can relax.
Receptionist – If you do everything right but have a miserable receptionist, you are not going to make a good impression on your visitors! Making sure that you have a receptionist who is friendly and good at their job makes all the difference. Remember, they are the first face that your visitors will see.
