WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER COWORKING AND SERVICED OFFICES
Whether you are a startup or existing corporation that requires flexibility in space requirements and efficient office operations without the usual hassle, you really ought to consider the various options currently available in the market.
The flexibility extends to length of leases, number of days that you will be using the space, whether you need dedicated workstation (if you need focus time) or hotdesking (if open and communal interaction is important to you), and even the number of staff who need to use the space over time. If you need storage space, this can also be arranged.
The efficiency derived from such spaces includes not needing to set up your telecommunication (aka WIFI, server space etc), maintin pantry, security and cleanliness of space, and even the nitty gritty of not having to worry about handling postages and business phone calls. Even accounting and legal support are available on demand. In the new and technological advanced economy, new businesses should really focus on their core business and work on winning new customers and maintaining existing rather than be vexed over the daily grind of maintaining an office space.
With such needs in mind, coworking spaces, serviced offices and shared office space have entered the market. With more operators in the market, we are seeing increasing unique and differentiated offerings so as to stand out among the pack.
For one, working parents can now have the option of working and having their kids being taken care of in the same space. In fact, medium and large corporations can also sign up as corporate members with the operator to send their new parents there to work while enjoying the benefits of having their young children close by. More corporations are starting to realise that it is such a shame to have female employees 'quitting' their job just to spend 'more time at home' with their kids as there is no alternative working arrangement. With such a cowork space, corporations can seriously start reviewing their HR policy and allow parents with young children to opt for such working arrangement. Check out some of their photos below!
Additionally, working out of coworking spaces and serviced offices allows one to interact with other businesses. Some spaces are so well equipped that they even come with nap room(s), shower facilities, cafe with on-premise barista, beer garden, event space etc. We have even come across one such operator that has a resident cat and it naturally becomes a talking point among the members thus generating conversations and interaction. There could be partnership, collaboration, exciting ideas formed and even new businesses that arise from such interaction. This is so important for young businesses to beat the odds to survive, grow, thrive and sustain.
In recent years, we are seeing new spaces entering the market - are operated by people who are fun, innovative and full of 'crazy ideas' and naturally the spaces they put together are equally unique as themselves. Just look at the variety of ambience and milieu within easy reach of anyone who think this might work for them. Most operators also have more than one location - traditional office buildings and rustic shophouses, for you to choose from and this works out to your advantage. You may be able to switch location should the need arises.
