Our Vision of the future of workspaces

In times like these, full office presence is barely a prerequisite anymore. Basic tech solutions have been adopted widely and allow work to be distributed more remotely in many areas. While some of us are still getting used to it, innovative companies have pathed a way and committed to a future in which WFH will cover a considerable part of their work. We believe it is important to understand the value that a good home office setup brings to your team: it can provide the best environment particular for individual tasks that require your team to work focussed and diligently without distractions.

However, relying on employees to work from home exclusively is not always feasible and mostly not desirable from a culture and development perspective. Sticking to routines is one thing, but improvement and growth are usually achieved when people gather to support and challenge each other. Your office is that place that has to serve as an anchor for your team to experience culture, purpose and growth. We believe that most offices these days fall short of fulfilling their duties of a true headquarter: a place for people to buy into the company’s mission, to meet and to develop further.

While traditional and home offices serve well for many cases, it is important to understand that neither of them can ever create the right environment for every situation (e.g. product presentations, strategy meetings, confidential talks, etc.). It’s proven that minimal changes in environment can change an atmosphere from open-minded to closed-door and thereby ultimately impact work and outcomes adversly. Therefore we believe that adding easy-access to offsite spaces to the mix of becomes indispensable for situations in which teams need to meet.

Implementing this trifecta of workspaces well, gives a company the potential to not only save on real estate but streamline processes and ultimately create a more-thriving environment for everyone. When facing the challenge to craft a future-proof working environment, a true understanding of working environments and finding the balance for your team is key.

What are other benefits of renting remote workspaces?

Beyond COVID-19, the way teams work is changing and many businesses are reconfiguring their use of office space in the long-term. This means looking at alternative office workspaces where teams work offsite, together.
Remote workspaces are an economic way to keep your team productive and your business running smoothly. Having extra room helps you find an option that works, and remain open to the future.
