Demand for Flexible Workspace Is Expected to Rise
Recent reports have found that flexible workspaces will play a key role in the future of work as companies embrace hybrid work arrangements.
A July 2021 survey from Workthere found that UK enquiries for flexible office space had increased 48% on pre-Covid levels.
Research from The Instant Group has concluded that in light of new workplace needs, companies are increasingly leveraging flexible workspaces to help them right-size and right-purpose their offices.
“[It is] becoming apparent that the flexible workspace industry, which is agile by its very nature, can very quickly adapt to change and can provide a solution to many of the challenges businesses are facing today.”
Already, flexible workspace operators are experiencing an increase in demand from corporate clients.
Flexible workspace operators hoping to expand their footprint need to act quick, according to Instant Group.
The coronavirus pandemic has created a buyer’s market and flexible workspace operators can now acquire quality space in central locations at a lower cost.
While now seems to be as right time as any for flexible workspace operators to expand, The Instant Group predicts rates could potentially rise quickly.
