Why companies choose coworking over traditional offices in the new normal
While the work landscape adapts to the recent pandemic, companies in Taiwan are recognising the irks of traditional office spaces, in terms of costs, flexibility and accessibility. As the country gradually achieves a level of normalcy against a new economic narrative, how can companies arm themselves better to brave potential uncertainties in the near future? What they need is a fresh perspective of work, one that is strategically long-term and smarter. By that, we mean coworking. In what ways is it a better leverage than traditional office spaces? 1. Cost-effective What traditional lease agreements do not provide companies is the ability to cut costs. These not only include those of rent, but also the resources needed to keep the space operationally-ready for employees. We are referring to utilities, furniture, equipment, kitchen essentials and all the necessities for a full-fledged office. A coworking space like JustCo’s absorbs your operational costs at a favourable and budget-matching monthly fee. Your employees gain access to a host of office essentials, from a fully-stocked pantry through to ergonomically-friendly hot desks and well-furnished meeting rooms. Hot desking or booking a private suite is surely an ideal solution for growing startups, independent entrepreneurs and freelancers. However, enterprises can also benefit from a ‘core and flex’ strategy, which comprises a smaller long-term space and a flexible coworking office. This allows for easy scaling without having to incur more costs which traditional office leases often entail.
