The Workspace offers furnished and fully equipped shared office space in Johannesburg, as well as other locations across Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal.
What is shared office space?
Shared office space is simply workspace that’s shared by multiple workers and/or businesses.
Shared office space is also called coworking.
Once considered the domain of freelancers and digital nomads, it now has very wide appeal.
With a more flexible approach to work models, businesses of all sizes are using shared offices to cut costs and give employees better work-life balance.
Shared office space is also an ideal, affordable option for independent professionals and contractors.
The benefits of shared office space in Johannesburg
Shared office spaces are taking off as working remotely becomes more commonplace. These shared spaces have many upsides that benefit businesses and employees. These include:
Workers can choose to work from whichever branch is closest to their home, so they can cut out traffic. All members have access to all branches of The Workspace.
Hybrid work models
Companies can combine work from home, coworking and traditional office space for better employee satisfaction.
Lower setup costs
Even small offices can have high rentals and require furniture and equipment. Using a shared office space eliminates the cost of setting up an office from scratch.
Reducing or eliminating full-time office space saves month-to-month expenses such as rent, parking, utilities and even tea or coffee supplies.
Shared offices offer onsite business services, such as printing, copying and binding, so businesses don’t have to buy pricey office equipment.
Reduced staff costs
Shared offices have reception and cleaning services, so businesses don’t need to hire additional staff.
Branches are positioned in popular business districts and close to restaurants and shops. Businesses benefit from networking opportunities with other members.
