Traditional Serviced Offices
Fans of BBC’s ‘The Office’ won’t be strangers to the aesthetic of a traditional serviced office. While serviced offices make up for a large percentage of workspaces in the UK, many businesses are now turning to more modern alternatives due to the often grey, lacklustre look and atmosphere of the traditional serviced office environment.
Traditional serviced offices could be a good fit for established brands looking to house a large team who require dedicated meeting space, inclusive utility costs and daily cleaning services. However, a drab working environment has been observed to reduce staff morale and may leave you vulnerable to a higher rate of staff turnover (especially if your competitors have a more appealing work environment).
After several months in lockdown, it’s fair to say many UK workers have found a way to set up a remote workspace from home, be it a spare bedroom or simply a laptop setup at the dining table!
While this is certainly a low cost, low-risk way to work in the short term, once the new round of COVID restrictions begins to be slowly lifted in 2021 you may wish to begin looking at a new workspace in which to setup your business HQ. This could be particularly useful if you’re one of the many workers in the UK who struggles to achieve high levels of productivity from home, or you require a professional setting at which to host meetings and interviews.
If you’re also looking to grow the size of your team and need sufficient time to work with them on a face-to-face basis (such as staff training) then sourcing a more spacious and accommodating workspace may also be an appropriate solution.
