The Wave of the Communal Office Space
The Wave of the Communal Office Space. Your eight to five can be just that. Your eight to five. Nothing new, nothing exciting. Then came COVID-19 and everyone was asked to work from home for a while. Yay, right? Well, not exactly.
As people have spent more time working at home because of health threats posed by the pandemic, the negatives of working from home have come into light.
A survey conducted and completed in partnership with Brightspot Strategy in July 2020 notes some of these negatives:
- There is an 11% drop in the ability to brainstorm and meet.
- There is also a 17% average decline on maintaining social relationships.
- Then there is a 25% average drop in unplanned interactions.
- It was established in their survey that 90% of people want to return to the office at least one day weekly.
Given these figures, both employees and employers face productivity challenges––or the lack thereof. Healthy working habits established in the past may no longer be in place.
That quick shower to get your day started, or that little trip to the next meeting room that helps you breathe for even just a bit. Instead, what employees now have to deal with, ironically, “in the comfort of their own homes” contributes to making work uncomfortable.
Working from home may have been the dream for many who’ve grown tired of an office setup. When the pandemic forced almost all businesses to close or operate virtually in a snap, the work from home setup, which not everyone was prepared for didn’t feel like that beautiful daydream.
The reality came with consequences that have weighed everyone down slowly but surely.
This is where signing up for a BBC Membership helps make a difference. Britannia Business Center is the jumpstart you need to get you and your employees out of whatever funk COVID-19 has put us all in.
Let’s face it, hearing your significant other in his or her own virtual meeting or having to be distracted from yours by a delivery guy’s knock on your doorstep really can get in the way of your work Zen.
It disrupts your productive flow, and there really are just days when the work from home setup doesn’t feel as productive as being in the office.
The overhead costs of opening up the entire office building does get expensive though, and with the new health protocols, can be even more taxing for employers to do… Let’s go back to that last bullet point:
“90% of people want to return to the office at least one day weekly.”
Employers don’t need to get their entire building up and running with smart workspace choices. The negatives of working from home can be alleviated by the flexible workspace solutions offered by Britannia Business Center.
Our fully-furnished office suites exude modern sophistication, setting the mood for productivity and a refreshed mindset.
You no longer have to feel like you’re working on a makeshift or cramped “desk” at home. Our conference tables give you enough space for all of your work essentials while allowing you to stay within safe distances from your colleagues.
Britannia Business Center has maintenance staff who take care of full-time cleaning, helping ensure you are in a healthy office environment.
It truly is different, “hearing” everyone else’s gears turning as you come up with new ideas for your projects, and being in one of our meeting rooms can help you feel just that. No more lag, no more “Sorry, what was that? You were getting cut off…” or “Sorry, my screen is freezing,” since you’re all back to working face to face.
You still will be getting high-speed internet and WI-FI though. We got you covered on that. You can also use our printers, copiers, scanners, and fax machines throughout the day. No need to worry about running out of ink or paper––or not having a home printer.
And have we mentioned free coffee? We aim to give you a fresh take on communal workspaces and increased productivity. We even have a fitness room and wellness space should you decide on having a different spin on how you want to refresh yourself during breaks. Should you wish, we also have outdoor social spaces.
Our full-time security crew can also show you and your clients to our free parking space. Our receptionists will also help you with anything else you might need as you enjoy our premises for your collaborative work needs.
