Flexible workspace offers small businesses the chance to radically cut costs and change the way they operate now and post-COVID 19.
A recent survey showed that 79% of companies using flexible workspace find it contributes to their success through lower overheads and improved productivity.
What is flexible workspace?
Flexible workspace offers fully furnished serviced offices.
Usually, business-related services, such as faxing and printing, are offered onsite.
The managers specialise in office management rather than commercial leasing.
Leases are flexible, so your business doesn’t have to be locked into a long lease.
How flexible workspace can help businesses adapt
Flexible offices offer your business all the facilities and services of a modern office without the investment.
You can scale your space up or down without having to change your business address.
Plug-and-play office space
Facilities like The Workspace offer plug-and-play offices.
This is ideal if your company is going through a growth period, downsizing or you’re just starting out.
The offices are fully furnished, so you don’t need to invest in office furniture.
You have high-speed internet and phone lines that are ready to be connected.
This means no downtime when moving in.
If you need more space, you simply move into a different serviced office in the same facility.
Potential massive cost savings
Setting up or moving to a new office can be costly.
With this type of office, you get a fully fitted office with business services without the upfront expenditure.
There’s no need to set up a kitchen because flexible offices offer fully fitted kitchens and canteens.
The rental price includes reception staff and the use of meeting rooms.
Easier implementation of social distancing
Larger companies can choose to move essential onsite staff into a flexible workspace while letting others work remotely from home.
The management of flexible workspaces is aware of the current need to screen for COVID-19.
Usually, temperature monitoring and access control takes place at the entrance.
Hand sanitiser is supplied and the workspaces are cleaned regularly.
Support for employee preferences
Basing your business in a flexible workspace allows employees choice about where they work.
They can continue to work from home or at the nearest branch of the flexible workspace.
This saves time and money on commuting.
It translates into happier workers with greater productivity.
Flexible workspaces don’t lock businesses into long leases.
A company can try the office for a few months, benefit from the lower overheads and decide if it will work long term.
With The Workspace, leases can be as short as three months.
Alternatively, you can choose pay-as-you-go coworking space on a monthly basis.
Offices come in a range of sizes, so you can choose the one that suits your needs.
