Take a Smaller Office, Get Extra Access Cards for Your Whole Team

With an increasing number of businesses now considering more flexible working policies for their teams, many are now seeking new ways of taking office space that give their employees the freedom to work however best suits them.

Extra-passes-big

In our recent “Should we ditch the office?” survey, we discovered that a staggering 86% of employees would like to work remotely at least once a week—but only 15% would want to do so every single day. 71% also felt that their company should definitely still have an office, with 22% remaining undecided. As such, it’s no surprise that the majority of businesses will still need some form of physical office presence in the future. 

Nevertheless, the forecasted increase in remote working means that the traditional “one desk per employee” office is no longer always the most cost-efficient. With a higher proportion of team members working remotely at any one time, big offices will rarely be at capacity—and businesses run the risk of spending too much on their office rent.

Take a smaller office, but get extra memberships for your whole team

To solve this new challenge, many workspace operators are making it possible for businesses to take smaller private offices, but have extra access cards for their wider team. This means that companies can retain an office presence but get much better value for their money—and all employees can access the workspace as and when they need to.

Interested? Below, we’ve listed the providers offering this solution right now. For each, we’ve shown the price of each additional access pass (some are free!), the cost of which is added to your monthly office rent.
