Now more than ever the way we work has changed beyond recognition in a short space of time. Today office space equates to agile working, a shorter commute and flexible space is critical. Additionally bringing teams safely back into sanitised office environments where they feel safe is a corporate responsibility that needs a consultative approach.

So for those businesses now looking to move into the new normal, we thought it might help to sum up some of the reasons our clients choose serviced space with Arena. In particular why larger corporates are now moving into this flexible way of working as opposed to a traditional leased office environment.

Keep flexible
In an ever changing world the need to stay agile, keep flexible and react quickly means your office space needs to perform in the same way. Serviced spaces with flexible contracts allow you the freedom to upsize, downsize or move out with ease. Leased agreements on the other hand can be longer term 3, 5 or 10 year contracts which are difficult to exit.

Stay cost-effective
One of the key advantages of choosing serviced space lies in the cost-saving opportunities that it presents. With no need to conduct building surveys or instruct conveyancers, serviced space remove large capital outlay before occupancy. Equally, with most serviced offices providing kitchens, washrooms, meeting rooms, business lounges and reception areas you only ever pay for the space you occupy.

Control your costs
As well as saving money, serviced space gives the added peace of mind that there will be no surprise invoices for incidentals. Any building repairs, maintenance or utility bills are the responsibility of the serviced office provider and the associated costs are covered by them. One monthly invoice ensures you can accurately calculate budgets and control your costs.
