One of the great advantages of serviced offices is the ability to expand as your company grows. But at a time when many more staff than usual will be working from home, serviced offices can also help companies looking to downsize their office space.
In recent weeks we have looked at some of the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, such as the need for increased remote working, more social distancing in the workplace, but also an understandable desire to manage costs at the current time.
Serviced offices can meet all these needs in a variety of different ways, providing you with a workplace of the size you need for the present, but also the opportunity to start expanding again in the coming months as conditions allow for this.
At the same time, you get all the benefits that come with serviced offices at any other time, including reception facilities, kitchen areas (subject to any applicable COVID-secure restrictions) and ergonomic furniture from known and trusted brands.
If you’re looking for premises of the right size to meet your current needs, and you want to be able to start business immediately without needing to refurbish your new workplace, take a look at our serviced offices in London and Manchester.
A little extra room when you need it
In addition to our serviced offices, we also have meeting rooms for hire in London and Manchester at the same premises – so when you need an extra room for client meetings, job interviews or staff training, you don’t have to leave the building.
This gives you the flexibility to hold meetings safely during the coming months, including using a meeting room to provide you with some extra privacy while you speak to a client or candidate by telephone or video conference.
Of course if you need to hold face-to-face meetings, we will do everything we can to make sure our meeting rooms in Manchester and London are thoroughly cleaned and meet all the necessary COVID-secure guidelines that are in place at the time.
We know conditions will continue to change, often very quickly and with little warning, during the months ahead, but this again is all the more reason to take full advantage of the flexibility offered by serviced offices and meeting rooms.
Virtual offices for remote working
Finally, if you have decided to move your business over to 100% remote working or close to it, you might feel that you no longer need physical premises, but still want the positive perception of a trading address in a desirable location.
We provide virtual offices in Manchester and London – again at the same physical address as our serviced offices – which allows you to trade from any location of your choice, using our postal address and other contact details for customers and other third-parties to get in touch.
We can forward mail and redirect phone calls through to you, so you still get the full benefits of our experienced reception staff, even if you never come into the building in person.
If you need to hold a meeting or interview, you have access to our meeting rooms to hire, and as your business grows, we welcome enquiries to move from virtual offices into our serviced office space so you can continue to expand as conditions improve in the coming months.
