In unpredictable times, there has never been a more poignant reason for businesses to opt for short-term, flexible offices.
With the immediate ramifications of Brexit being felt far and wide, the raw truth is, this is just the beginning, as the government begins the lengthy process of EU withdrawal. As the pound continues to fall to levels not seen for decades, Article 50 won’t be invoked for some months yet, kicking off 2 years of negotiations before we officially leave the EU. This will be followed by years of renegotiating trade deals, not only with the other 27 EU countries, but also globally. Against this backdrop, it’s easy to see why economic uncertainty – in the UK and beyond – continues to grow.
Open for business
While many UK industries appear to have been affected by uncertainty – not least the commercial property market – Britain remains very much open for business. Whilst there has been a natural pause in office space demand, no doubt caused by uncertainty, certain facets of the market continue to show high levels of demand and relative growth, most notably the flexible office space sector.
Flexible offices – the perfect fit for unpredictable times?
After all, businesses continue to need office space. Together with flexible lease terms – typically between 1 month and 2 years and with all-inclusive monthly costs – it’s fair to say that there has never been a better time or a more poignant reason for businesses to take short-term, flexible offices. In current uncertain economic conditions, it’s harder than ever for many businesses to justify a commitment to a long term, conventional lease. Unpredictable times call for nimble feet and – as ever – those businesses quickest to adapt to changing economic realities and demands will continue to grow and enjoy success.
