Covid-19 has changed our work patterns dramatically, with many still working from home. However, the hybrid co-working offices from Workshop17 offer the best of the corporate world with the convenience of working near to home.
Working from home has lost most of its shine after 1,5 years at the kitchen table, bedroom, or in the home office for the lucky ones. We need professional interaction, new ideas and energy, those chance conversations that open up new avenues. The traditional office is not the solution, though. It’s too far away and we don’t want to sit in all that traffic again. And most offices are not very inspiring. We need a place close to where we live, where we can work, be more productive, meet, and that we enjoy going to.
Having your own company office comes with a lot and paying the rent is only a small part of it. You need capital to fit it out and to sign a long term lease agreement. There’s cleaning, security, reception, HVAC and ICT infrastructure to pay for – the total bill is often four times the base rent. In times of hybrid workspace, this makes no financial sense. Why have an office for the full staff contingent when only half will be in on any day? Flexibility is key. And focus. Let others manage the workspace, so you can focus on the essence of your work.
WORK NEAR HOME
Imagine a workplace close to home with no hassles, no concerns about over or under commitment, no expensive surprises. Think of an inspiring environment, with plenty of spaces to work and meet, enjoy great coffee, great food and snacks, and always a warm welcome. Envision a place where you can book a meeting room and parking, instantly, on an app. Does it sound too good to be true?
The good news is that it’s not! Workshop17 is already present in, or soon coming too, a beautiful hybrid workspace near you, including:
