With many employees and employers having to broach the topic of flexible working, the question on the need for an office space to work in is a timely and important one to assess. The desire for flexible working which sprung from the pandemic means a return to the office is a traditional concept being revisited and frequently being negotiated. With this in mind, how essential is an office space for businesses in the future? Is remote working long term a viable alternative?

For many businesses an office space will always be an essential part of the way they work, providing an important base for the business, space to bring teams together and a professional front to the business. This does not however mean flexible working is incompatible with an office space. An office can be a great asset for flexible working, offering space to collaborate and separation of work and home when needed.

The location, design, layout, and appearance of a business’s office frequently get associated with their brand and reflects on the business as a whole. In the current climate of flexible working, it also forms part of your employees’ experience, potentially forming part of the offer for new and returning employees.

Office space at Heywood House near Westbury is much more than just office space. Use of the many services and facilities at this unique site comes with every workspace. Outside space and glorious grounds on your office doorstep, onsite meeting rooms, café, events, and a whole business community to be part of. The office space can easily incorporate flexible working by offering co-working facilities on site for those staff working remotely that are needed nearby but not always directly in the office.

A virtual office is now also available at Heywood House- perfect for those working remotely, flexibly and keen to be part of a professional and growing business community for their business. Combining it with membership gives access to the workspaces too which creates a unique offer.

The office space is not redundant in this time of flexible working. If anything, it can be seen as a real asset and tool to launch a successful return to business post pandemic.
