According to property firm Jones Lang Lasalle (JLL)*, demand for flexible office space like SiGNAL's Bordon HQ is set to grow by 30% per year over the next five years. The firm says it's down to the way companies are organising their workforces, and it's not just innovative new startups that are fuelling this demand.
Large multinational organisations are also using flexible workspaces, taking advantage of 'offices on demand' from coworking and flexi desks, to private offices and suites. We have a number of people using our free coworking space here in Bordon who work for large multinationals. Knowing that remote workers are in a dedicated workspace, instead of a cafÃ© or working from home, reassures HR and line managers that staff are in a suitable setting to work productively and securely when not on site.
The agility and flexibility this trend provides the ability to expand or reduce your workforce without expensive outlays or losses is something micro and small businesses have always wanted. Lack of affordable flexible office space in places like Bordon often prevents local businesses from pursuing the growth they want.
Many businesses can't afford a commercial rent, long notice periods and additional costs like service charges, insurance etc. For many it's too risky. Instead they want more flexible terms that allows them take the next step from their home office or shared workspace, and focus on growing their business.
That's why we've developed 8 new offices at SiGNAL to plug this gap in the market and provide the benefits of the new model of flexible workspaces. Along with affordable rents, no hidden extras and a 1 month notice period, local business owners become part of our community and can access the business support and services we provide.
With our coworking space, Workshop (offering flexible workbench hire), 3D Tech Zone, therapy rooms, Studio and meeting rooms, SiGNAL is a lot more than a serviced office provider! With users coming from all sorts of different fields and businesses, the opportunities to collaborate, innovate and get a fresh perspective are vast. We host regular networking events drawing in attendees from Bordon and further afield, not just SiGNAL residents, providing a focus in the local area for all small businesses.
SiGNAL is also home to the Bordon Hub, our business training and support members group. Again this attracts a diverse number of businesses, united by a commitment to grow their businesses and in doing so build a thriving local business community. More details about the Bordon Hub can be found here.
