Flexible Workspace for Companies: Ideal as Backup Office Space

Increasingly, flexible workspace is proving its value to large companies and corporations. Along with the many other advantages it offers, it’s ideal as backup office space.

Flexible workspace enables:

  • easier implementation of social distancing, with access to more floor space when it’s needed
  • business continuity if premises are hit by a disaster, such as fire or flooding
  • on-demand access to office space near meeting locations so staff can easily prepare for and host meetings or training sessions
  • accommodation of new teams at short notice
  • provision of office space close to team members’ homes to cut commutes.

Why flexible workspace is ideal as backup office space


These scenarios show when flexible workspace is ideal as backup office space.

But why is flexible workspace ideal?

Here are a few of the benefits flexible workspace offers small to medium businesses.

Health and safety protocols in place

Stringent health and safety protocols, including COVID-19 screening, are implemented at all of The Workspace facilities.

Protocols include access control, social distancing and sanitisation.

Agility through flexible lease terms

Flexible workspace enables businesses to be agile with their workspace requirements.

You can vary the space you need in conjunction with, for example, a new project.

Instead of signing up for a long lease, your business can join The Workspace on flexible terms.

Choose from a three, six or 12-month agreement.

Mitigate risk of the unexpected

None of us can foresee the unexpected, but flexible workspace allows your business to mitigate the risk of a disaster hitting your premises.

If and when the unexpected happens, flexible workspace is available and your business can continue to operate.

Our serviced offices give your team members everything they need to keep your business running.

Walk in, knowing everything is set up and ready to use.

Flexible workspace saves time and money

With a serviced office or coworking space, you don’t have to worry about finding, setting up or maintaining business premises and infrastructure.
