Colliers International, a global leader in real estate services and investment management, produced a survey about the U.S. Workplace in 2019. The ‘flexible workspace’ is proving to be a powerful tool for businesses, no matter how big or small. The amenities they provide help small businesses and start-up propel their business into new heights! Here are some of the biggest takeaways from the survey:
• Breaking Traditions – Colliers International Reported that in 2010, there were less than 300 flexible workspaces. Today, there are more than 5,000 locations across the country! Traditional office spaces are changing their structures to accommodate businesses who want something similar to the flexible workspace.
• Flexible for Every Customer – A big draw to the flexible workspace is in the name – it is flexible! It can be used as a quick spot for a short period for larger corporations, or be a full-time area with the utilization of all of the support for a small business. It gives every business the opportunity to work in a creative environment to grow their business quantitatively and qualitatively.
• Space As a Service – According to Colliers, a reason for the growth in the flexible workspace is not viewing space as a commodity, but as a service. Property owners are using customer centricity to attract businesses to use their quality services in their office space.
• The New Workforce – As a new generation of people come of age and enter the workforce, businesses and employers need to shift the culture and environment to attract these new minds. A big way to attract them is to place them in a flexible workplace, where this new young talent can work and grow the best.
