Why businesses are turning to managed spaces over traditional offices

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, a quiet revolution had begun at the office, with many businesses rethinking the traditional office space and the way we use it. Now, with the way we work changing, more businesses than ever are looking for a new solution.

Over the last few years, we’ve seen an increase in the amount of businesses using flex spaces to collaborate, connect and build relationships throughout the ecosystem, and with post-COVID-19 financial cautiousness in mind, more business owners are exploring these options.

With flexible lease terms or no lock-in contracts, fast WiFi, meeting room facilities, break out spaces and community connections, the benefits of flex spaces are more than just a more affordable alternative to traditional offices. In a recent article on JLL, they share how shared spaces encourage human interaction and create a sense of fun and belonging. If people feel they are connected, belong, and are valued, then they can thrive.

Coming off the back of our mandatory work from home policy, this human interaction is something business owners are searching for. Flex spaces aren’t just made for working next to others. By immersing yourself within the community, corporations and larger businesses are able to adapt and consider new ways of working.

With that in mind, we’ve put together three ways all businesses can benefit from joining a flex workspace.

Community
We’ve all heard the old adage, ‘it’s not what you know, it’s who you know,’ well, it’s partly true. Networking, and co locating next to leading entrepreneurs and corporates in flex spaces has revolutionised and accelerated the process of building key business contacts.

Creative Hubs
Flex spaces are designed with the goal of creating a space that encourages productivity and brings people together while also allowing businesses to have their own privacy and space as needed. From private office space, multipass memberships, team desking, stand up work spaces and outdoor flex spaces, you and your team can work in a space that suits you and your needs.

Learning
Attend regular weekly events, meetups, seminars, social networking gatherings and hackathons to professionally develop. Be connected mentors, meet established business people and access new opportunities all on your doorstep.
