The Covid-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the way we work, and going back to what once was may be impossible. Companies around the world scrambled to continue with their operations as best as they could by implementing home office protocols, using new communication software, getting accustomed to video meetings, and attending or hosting virtual events and trade shows.
It was soon clear for both workers and organizations that working outside of the traditional office was not only possible but could also be very practical.
Now this does not mean that working from home is the absolute best way of working. In fact, working from home can be far from ideal for most people and most businesses. For starters, the infrastructure is inadequate to say the least. In most improvised home offices there’s no ergonomic furniture, no private spaces such as conference rooms or calling booths, no completely reliable internet connection, even the atmosphere isn’t necessarily one that helps workers feel focused and productive.
And just as companies and workers found out that there were so many solutions out there that made remote work much easier, it is time to find something that remedies the issues that come with the traditional office space itself. One such solution is getting an executive suite or flexible workspace for your business.
Downsize Your Real Estate Footprint
For starters, using a flexible workspace helps you completely eliminate the need to invest in a large commercial space. As you may have experience during the pandemic, having a long and expensive lease on office space felt like a drain of resources that could have been put to better use. With flexible workspaces and executive suites you only use what you need, when you need it, and wherever you need it.
This freedom not only helps you avoid lower costs but it can also enable you to look for new opportunities outside of your usual scope.
No Long Term Lease
Another benefit of not having a long term lease on office space is that you are able to use a flexible workspace or an executive suite whenever it makes sense for your business. This could mean renting a flexible workspace for one hour every two weeks, using an executive suite twice a month, or spontaneously book a space whenever you need.
This can also be a great solution for people that divide their work into projects of different durations such as designers, architects, developers, etc. For remote workers, a flexible workspace can serve as an HQ of sorts, where they can meet with their teams or collaborate with others in the organization. This helps create and maintain a strong sense of belonging among all workers.
Flexibility to Scale Your Business
Additionally the flexibility that comes with this solution doesn’t only apply to workers, it can be very beneficial to your company as well. Now that business is slowly starting to pick back up, you may be considering the need to hire new employees and grow your company.
A flexible workspace can help you scale your business by enabling you to easily add more offices whenever you need, for as long as you need.
Flexible workspaces and executive suites can offer you the freedom you and your company need in these uncertain times. And the flexibility you find when working with these solutions can help inspire you to remain flexible yourself and find creative ways to successfully run your business.
