What does your reception desk need to accomodate?

Size and Shape Matter

The reception desk is not something that you should choose lightly. There are several considerations to take into account before purchasing one. For example, will the desk need to accommodate more than one receptionist at a time? If so, you need to purchase a large enough desk so that there is room for the necessary number of employees, paperwork and computer systems.

You should also ask yourself if your business deals with personal, sensitive or confidential information. If it does and any of this information will cross your receptionist's desk, you might want to consider one with an elevated front face so that people cannot see that information from the other side.

Depending on the type of business you are in, file storage and computer needs might be important. Will the reception desk need to be large enough to accommodate a printer? Fax machine? Multiple large computer monitors? Do you need built-in drawers or filing cabinets, and do they need to be able to lock?

Determining the answers to these questions will point you in the right direction for purchasing a reception desk, and make your life, as well as your receptionist's day, much easier.
