The landscape of business has changed, and it’s looking more and more like it’s going to stay that way for the foreseeable future.

Back in March, we were devastated to see many of our fantastic clients pack up their things after being ordered to work from home – and then when they gradually started to return in June, we welcomed them back with open arms.

As the pandemic rumbles on, many businesses still have employees working from home. While this is, quite rightly, in line with government guidance, it can present an operational headache for managers.

As the North’s independent leading flex space provider with almost 20 years’ experience, BusinessLodge wanted to help the business community- after all we’re all in this together. Through in-depth discussions with organisations across Stoke and Bury, we’ve enhanced our services with a fantastic new offering …

Welcome to collaborative co-working.

Customer demand

In response to overwhelming demand, we’ve started to offer Covid-safe working space in both of our high spec business centres for businesses to rent out for the day – or even by the hour. Our new scheme offers companies and workers the opportunity to come together and work in a safe, professional business environment.

Our new service is already proving popular, and our space is being used for a variety of reasons:

Home-working fatigue

Homeworking has many benefits – but there are also the downsides. It can be lonely and isolating. It can be difficult to separate your work schedule from the day to day drudgery of family and household chores. It’s all too easy to nip away from the laptop to “just pop on a quick wash” or catch up on your paperwork.  In addition, the to-do list left by family can end up making greater demands on your time than you need.

From a practical perspective, well-designed workspaces are created to facilitate productivity. On an ongoing basis, working in the box room of your house at a battered old desk whilst sitting on a dilapidated kitchen chair just won’t do.

Team-work makes the dream work

While anything is possible, some businesses are built on employee collaboration. Skype, Zoom and Microsoft Teams has proved a lifeline over recent months, but it’s not the same as being in the same room as colleagues – albeit socially distanced. Our working space gives businesses the chance to get key team members in a safe environment, whenever they require it, working effectively and productively.

A professional business environment – short term.

Our collaborative workspaces provide a professional working environment, with everything you need from internet and conference facilities to the all-important refreshments. The beauty is that businesses can replicate the environment they have back in the office – short term.

What’s more, with 20 years experience in providing flexible office space, this is what we do best. Our share workspace can be utilised by a single employee or a whole team, from an office to a conference room – whatever works for you we will endeavour to meet your requirements.
