Lower operational costs: There might be a reduction in expenses for office supplies, printing, and even cleaning services.

  • Potentially less expensive technology: Depending on the specific needs of remote workers, companies might find that cloud-based solutions are more cost-effective than traditional on-premise IT infrastructure

Cost savings for employees:

  • Reduced commuting expenses: Employees who work from home some of the time save money on gas, public transportation fares, and car wear and tear.

Benefits that improve staff retention:

  • Improved work-life balance: A hybrid model allows employees more flexibility to manage personal commitments alongside work responsibilities, leading to higher satisfaction and reduced stress.
  • Access to a wider talent pool: Companies can attract candidates who might not be able to relocate for a traditional office job, expanding their reach and attracting top talent.

Dedicated Desk is your own personal workstation within a shared office space, like a co-working environment. It offers a nice middle ground between working from a traditional office and a more transient co-working setup. Here’s what you get with a dedicated desk:

  • Assigned workspace: Unlike hot desking where you use any available desk each day, a dedicated desk is yours to personalise and keep your belongings in. It provides a sense of ownership and familiarity that can boost productivity.
  • Stability and security: You know exactly where your desk is located, and you can leave your work computer and essential supplies there without worry. This can be a big advantage compared to constantly packing up and down at a hot desk.
  • Networking opportunities: While you have your own space, a dedicated desk in a co-working environment allows you to interact with other professionals and potentially build connections.
  • Amenities: Our receptionist will meet and greet visitors. You have access to our high-speed Wi-Fi, printing services, meeting rooms (bookable), and our kitchen.
  • Cost-effective: Compared to renting a private office, a dedicated desk is a more affordable option. You get the benefits of a dedicated workspace without the higher costs.

Day Office is like a temporary haven for professionals who need a fully-equipped workspace for a short period. Think of it as a hotel room for work, but instead of a bed, you get a desk and a professional atmosphere. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Private space: Unlike co-working spaces with open desks, a day office provides a fully enclosed room with a door. This ensures privacy and allows you to focus on confidential tasks or take important calls without distractions.
  • Equipped for work: Our day offices come furnished with essentials like a desk, chair, high-speed internet. You can walk in with your laptop and be ready to work right away.

Flexible rental options: You can rent one of our day offices for as little as an hour or as long as a full day or even several days a month, depending on your needs.
