Coworking is fast becoming the new normal. All around the world, companies and freelancers are foregoing traditional office spaces in favour of flexible, comfortable and well-appointed coworking facilities.
With this rise in popularity, coworking spaces are popping up all over. We take a look at what makes The Workspace special.
All businesses need access to fast internet, telephone lines, printers and occasionally even faxes. With coworking at The Workspace, all these things are already in place.
This means you can avoid expensive setup costs and equipment rentals or purchases – savings that can make a big difference to independent professionals and small businesses.
Meeting rooms and boardrooms
Because it’s important to make a good impression on potential and existing clients, all branches of The Workspace include comfortable, professionally appointed meeting rooms and boardrooms.
Use of our meeting rooms for a certain number of hours per month is included in all our coworking packages. Access to boardrooms with video conferencing and projector facilities is offered at an additional but very reasonable cost.
Full reception service
One of the best features of coworking at The Workspace is the welcoming environment and professional reception service provided by our friendly front-desk staff. Your guests and clients will be warmly greeted upon arrival and, if you choose, we can answer and forward your calls, even when you need to leave the office.
Ideal mix of private and collaborative spaces
Each of our branches includes open, comfortable areas ideal for informal meetings, brainstorming with colleagues or simply having a cup of coffee and catching up. Some of our branches also feature outdoor relaxation areas.
In addition, our coworking spaces include private areas and booths, where you can focus on your work without interruption.
All our branches offer free tea and coffee and properly equipped kitchens. Select branches also feature on-site cafés and storage units for hire.
We take safety and security very seriously at The Workspace. We offer secure parking for clients and visitors, as well as 24-hour security, CCTV surveillance and alarms.
Meeting people and making new connections is essential for freelancers and small businesses. A number of our branches offer regular networking events, with presentations by our members, interesting talks and drinks and snacks.
Friendly, efficient staff
We’re extremely proud of our team at The Workspace. We’re passionate about excellent customer service. All our staff members are expertly trained and ready to assist you in any way they can.
Going the extra mile is par for the course for our staff. Here is what some of our happy clients had to say:
We have had excellent service from your staff since moving into our offices. They are very helpful, professional, accommodating and willing to assist with anything we ask. – Janet Gerretsen, Melrose Arch branch
Just a little email to say thank you for doing a great job and always being friendly and helpful; really makes our experience much better. I’ve even had some of my suppliers and clients say how lovely my people are on the phone. – Aneesah Patel, Wynberg branch
I wanted to let you… know how much we appreciated the many months of wonderful, professional, and efficient assistance… Every step of the way, The Workspace team was right there… from last-minute booking emergencies to outrageous printing requests… We might no longer be situated at 140A Kelvin Drive, but rest assured we will always look back at our time there with fondness and warmth. – Tsholofelo Mothibi, Morningside Manor branch
I will gladly recommend The Workspace to any small or medium business. I also commend the way that you personally handle issues. – Oria Ramatsui, Midrand branch
My schedule is flexible… Anchen has always been prepared to accommodate this flexibility, and design a package to suit my needs and my pocket. She has been absolutely outstanding – and as a professional, it is a pleasure to work in a clean, quiet and organised environment, in a beautiful setting. – Doug McCulloch, Pietermaritzburg branch
