Forget what the song says: working 9-5 is not necessarily the way to make a living. Times are changing – literally – and the number of workspaces in London offering 24-hour access is well and truly on the rise.
The need to work with international time zones meet late-night deadlines, and the fact that no two days are the same are just a few reasons why restricting office opening hours to the traditional slots can hinder your business’ productivity. And when you take into consideration that some people simply work better at different hours of the day, it seems absurd that we’ve been limiting ourselves to such rigid timeframes until now.
That’s why these forward-thinking workspaces are all open around the clock – so whether you’re an early bird or a night owl, you can schedule your day in a way that suits you.
