Now that more companies are pivoting to a hybrid model, employers and employees are turning to coworking spaces that provide amenities and facilities you would expect from a fully-functional office.
Another trend we’re seeing is that companies are taking advantage of the benefits of Satellite coworking spaces. This makes a lot of sense for a lot of employees.
Rather than simply relocating your office from a traditional rented space and moving into a coworking office in a central location, utilising coworking spaces as satellite offices gives your staff more convenience and flexibility.
Avoiding Long Commutes
A Flexjobs survey revealed that 65% of UK employees sent home to work remotely during the pandemic do not want to return to the office. Avoiding the commute was cited as the leading reason.
Satellite offices mean your employees have a shorter commute. That means they save time and money, but not only that, sitting in traffic jams can be frustrating for some people, especially when they’re busy or just want to get home.
Avoiding long commutes improves the mental health of your employees – both in the workplace and at home with their families. When people are less stressed and frustrated, they have more energy and a better frame of mind to focus on their job.
Lower Carbon Footprint of Your Business
Shorter commutes also mean your employees – and thus your business as a whole – uses less fuel. This lowers your carbon footprint which translates into a higher ESG rating (Environment, Sustainability and Governance).
Access Multiple Meeting Rooms
Some days, finding a meeting room can be a real pain. What’s more, if you’re on a fixed-term contract in a coworking space that includes meeting rooms, you’re paying for office space that you’re not always using. That’s money you could be putting to good use.
BluDesks solve two problems. We provide coworking space that you rent by the hour. You simply block out the time and pay for the appropriate hourly rate. So that saves you money.
In addition, we provide access to multiple coworking spaces, you have multiple options to find an appropriate meeting room that fulfils your needs – even for impromptu, last-minute meetings.
Help To Improve Employee Wellbeing
Another key insight to come out of the draconian lockdowns was how employees felt isolated and lonely. The fact of the matter is that some people (extroverts) need to be around their colleagues for company. It’s not a coincidence that anxiety and depression cases went up during the pandemic.
Satellite offices help to nurture the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of employees. Simply being around other people and interacting with colleagues helps to improve mood and establish a bond.
Supports Culture, Collaboration and Cohesion of Teams
Satellite offices make it easier for colleagues that live in the same part of the city to congregate in an office that is conveniently situated closer to their home. By adopting dedicated coworking spaces as satellite offices, you can maintain your company culture and facilitate collaboration and cohesion.
