Make the Most of Your Serviced Office Space: Taking Some Time Out
Working in the same office space can get extremely monotonous, especially when you see the same people every day and stare at the same plain walls. However, a serviced office space is not your ordinary workplace. It provides more than just a space to work. Proper Office offers a flexible working space with communal areas that recharge the batteries and encourage bonds to form between colleagues and other businesses. It’s no wonder that freelancers and start up businesses are all flocking to sign up, so if you’re looking for a shared office space for rent, Shoreditch is the place to be. How can you transform and benefit from a serviced office space? Here are just a few suggestions from Proper Office to take on board when considering this choice.
The Importance of Nature
Adding nature to your working environment has a bigger impact on your productivity than you think. A lot of office spaces don’t budget for adding a few indoor plants or flowers for the employees to enjoy but science tells us that nature does in fact make us happy.
We all long to be outside when we’re at work, particularly during the Summer but bringing the nature in, lifts our mood and improves our productivity. One of the ways it does this is through adding cleaner air to the atmosphere, which is a must when living in an overly polluted city.
Breakout Spaces to Relax and Reflect
With many a shared office space, Shoreditch is a hub for numerous digital start-ups and therefore many of the jobs at these offices require you to be sat in front of a screen for the majority of the day. That’s neither good for your health or for your work, therefore having a breakout area is crucial for us humans, so that we avoid having lunch at the desk, giving our eyes a much-needed rest.
Ever stared off into space and allowed your mind to just switch off? In London, it’s a city that’s always constantly busy, working round the clock and as city residents, we don’t allow time to just sit back and reflect. A breakout space is essential and if you’re after a shared office, Shoreditch is home to many.
Making Time to Socialise
It’s in our nature to long for connection. We need to socialise or else we would have a pretty lonely existence. By having an office building that is shared with other companies, it gives you the chance to develop relationships amongst like-minded people like yourself. At Proper Office, we offer breakout spaces with ping pong tables to give our tenants a place to enjoy their well-deserved break and network with others in the building.
As a new business, the networking opportunities can be essential for getting your foot in the door and meeting people who could potentially rocket your venture to where it needs to be.
If you’re after managed office spaces, Proper Office offers several properties in Shoreditch and Putney that can suit your business’ needs, whether you’ve just started out or need a new scene to help improve work productivity and growth amongst the staff and your company.
