Bigger corporations and organisations will have to start looking at long-term solutions for housing their larger staff composites. With Covid regulations and the need to keep your staff members safe and healthy, smaller working groups and less staff in one office unit are required. Some corporations have started using coworking office spaces to allow staff to work from remote locations. Working from home during lockdown proved to many business owners and management that staff working offsite was a possibility, now as the panic continues more stable long-term solutions for working facilities are a must. And we believe that coworking communities are the way to go to allow for the decentralization of companies and employee safety.
What is co-working?
A flexible office space shared with other businesses and entrepreneurs with the same aim in mind, to run their businesses remotely without big overheads and fixed-term rental contracts. This allows for a community culture to be formed among said businesses, sharing communal breakrooms, meeting spaces, and work environments. In essence, a shared space for more than one company to operate the day-to-day running of their business, by making use of shared facilities such as printing, internet, client manager services, and more.
How does it work at Worq?
Members can choose from Desqs, Suites, Pods, and Retail space available in lite, premium, executive, and mega options, with the flexibility of a month-to-month rental. Depending on the chosen workspace, members are provided with a laundry list of appealing amenities including desks and chairs, access to Wi-Fi, printing/telephone/generator facilities, IT services, website & social media coverage, 24hour access to the building, and a dedicated client manager.
What type of business would work well within a coworking space?
A business rarely finds coworking inadequate in fulfilling its office-based requirements. Other than a food franchise requiring space to run cooking appliances or a manufacturing company making bulk production of a product, most companies will find a need in a coworking space. From social media agencies, brokers, tattoo artists, to accountants, all these forms of businesses fit well into a coworking environment. Sometimes companies utilize the coworking space for a select few departments within their business that can perform well in an office environment, an example of this would be a construction company that decides to house just their marketing, administrative, and accounts teams inside a coworking space while the rest of the team work remotely on projects or directly with clients at their establishments.
How does it benefit me and my business?
By lowering overheads, coworking is an ideal option to lessen your month-to-month business expenses knowing that all your major amenities are covered, and you are not bound by a long-term fixed rental contract. Businesses have started to look for low-risk options for office space, with minimal upfront costs and the flexibility to allow the business to grow and expand when necessary.
The community element of the coworking environment allows you to mingle with fellow members, offer your services and/or products to them and their clients and refer business between your enterprises.
The 24-hour access to the building allows you the flexibility to work whenever you wish, trade after-hours, and service your clients over weekends, meaning your business can continue running day and night no matter the day or time. Whilst our smarter spaces give you control over when you book your meetings in our boardroom, meeting room, and creative lab – our app gives you the freedom to book, cancel, and reschedule your meeting times whenever you want.
