The way companies go about finding new office premises has changed dramatically in recent years, with many businesses opting for flexible workspaces, as opposed to conventional office leases.
Serviced offices in Harrogate have proven incredibly popular among a variety of businesses – especially those that wish to remain agile and avoid being tied down by lengthy contracts.
But could you benefit from a serviced office?
In this blog, the team at 1 Cardale Park explain more about this flexible way of working and how you can benefit from renting a serviced office space like ours.
What is a serviced office?
A serviced office is a fully-furnished, ready-to-use office that can be rented on a short-term basis – either by a single company or multiple companies.
These buildings are managed by an operator who is typically responsible for providing reception support, security services, office cleaning and maintenance, admin support, IT infrastructure, and a host of other services.
How can you benefit from serviced office space?
Here we look at six of the advantages serviced offices can bring to your business.
1. All-inclusive rent
Serviced offices are all-inclusive office solutions for businesses of all sizes.
The monthly fee covers the office itself, as well as furnishings and useful amenities, such as meeting rooms, internet, and a manned reception to greet and direct visitors and clients – not to mention unlimited tea and coffee!
All facilities and services included will be clearly outlined in your agreement, so you know exactly what you’re paying for.
2. Flexible contracts
A traditional office lease is for a fixed period (usually between 3-5 years).
If you’re unable to accurately forecast your business growth, the last thing you want is to be tied into a long-term rental agreement and pay for office space that you don’t need or use.
Serviced offices, on the other hand, provide you with the breathing space to establish a long-term strategy whilst keeping your options open.
3. Instant occupancy
Ranging from desks and chairs to fast and secure internet, these office spaces are equipped with everything a business needs to hit the ground running.
The building managers take care of everything from cleaning the office to replenishing the tea, coffee, and sugar canisters in the shared kitchen. They even make sure that the utilities are hooked up, allowing you to focus entirely on the success of your business.
4. Reliable Wi-Fi
One of the greatest advantages of renting flexible office space is that high-speed internet will be included in the monthly rent – meaning you can get to work as soon as you move in.
An in-house IT team will be on hand for bespoke configurations during your onboarding, and they can also assist you if you have any technical difficulties on a day-to-day basis.
5. Networking opportunities
Though frequently overlooked, a serviced office gives your business ample opportunity to connect with the businesses that occupy the same building, as well as any visitors and guests.
This essentially enables you to forge new partnerships and deals, whilst broadening your knowledge and understanding – further helping your business to thrive.
6. On-site parking and bike storage
