The workspace industry has changed dramatically in recent years, with the more flexible service of co-working emerging as the ‘next big thing’. The idea of co-working is to provide workspace that has minimal commitment and inspires a collaborative and innovative community of businesses. The idea is to inspire and support one another – and fit the ‘pay as you go’ culture we’ve become accustomed to. As one of the first providers of Co-Working (we called it a shared office, many moons ago) in the UK, and certainly the first in Castle Donington, we’ve watched how the service has evolved and adapted to meet the needs of a mobile and flexible workforce.
We see specialist companies opening ‘hubs’ and other very modern facilities. These are great and provide a stimulating environment; however I can’t help but think they predominantly target the market of ‘creative’ business owners. The spaces themselves are described using adjectives such as ‘”vibrant”, “hip” and “buzzing”. While the creative markets undoubtedly thrive in such an open and collaborative environment, there is a different form of co-working available.
I’ll be the first to admit our space is not generally described as ‘hip’, and if it were buzzing we’d call pest control. Our space is prestigious, it’s high quality and it’s professional. At DBS our co-working is designed for all business sectors. We understand some may crave the community of a communal working space, but we also understand that for some, co-working is simply a smart way to access office space with minimal commitment. Co-working is a way of reducing overheads and accessing fellow engagement, if necessary.
Professional work space
Our Co-Working space is not a ‘hub’ of any sort; it’s a fully equipped traditional office. Internet and telecoms are provided, along with standard office equipment. There are breakout areas for informal meetings with access to freshly brewed coffee and tea stations. We believe this provides a truly flexible work space option – professional and productive workspace, social and informal breakout space, private dedicated space for phone calls – all located within stunning landscaped grounds with ample parking included. We enable growth and business continuity with our support.
So whatever your business sector, whoever you are and whatever you want to achieve from your workspace, a DBS Co-Working office is perfect for you. Call us now on 01332 810 900 for more information on our free trial days.
