When you hear the phrase “Flexible Workspace,” what do you think of? If you’re like most people, you probably have some major misconceptions. We recently caught up with Undine Shorey at Connect! Bradenton and she filled us in on all the details. Here’s what she had to say.
What is a flexible workspace? Glad you asked. A flexible workspace is a creative solution for modern business, with customized services designed to meet any of your business needs. You may discover that your business can change drastically or gradually. Flexible workspaces are, by design, meant to adapt as your business needs change. Without the need for stringent contracts or long term leases.
Let’s play a game of True or False, shall we?
- They’re only for start-ups. FALSE – Established businesses use flexible workspaces as well as start-ups. Who doesn’t want to have more control over their costs and expenses? Amenities such as coffee, tea, water and Wi-Fi are included with your monthly membership. Everyone is welcome here and that’s the point; we accommodate whoever and whenever.
“At Connect, we don’t require you to sign up for a yearly lease or any lease for that matter.”
- There are no leases. TRUE – At Connect, we don’t require you to sign up for a yearly lease or any lease for that matter. We offer different levels of commitments depending on your needs. Need us month-to-month? We got you. Six months? Yep. Twelve months? You bet! The longer you commit to us, the more you save. We offer discounts at the three, six, and 12-month commitment levels. So how much do I save? Good question! For three months, you receive a 5% monthly discount, six months is 10% and 12 months is 15%.
- Coffee shops and public places are just as good as flexible workspaces. FALSE – As much as we love coffee around here, we still believe that coffee shops aren’t always a good location for conducting professional meetings. If you want to take your business to the next level, a safe and professional environment will give the right appearance. Your clients will appreciate the extra effort in meeting at a location that is monitored, socially distanced, and secure with a business setting.
“When we say flexible, we mean flexible!”
- Flexible workspaces are flexible. TRUE – When we say flexible, we mean flexible! We are here to accommodate your needs. Whether your business scales up or you decide to downsize, we will do our best to meet your specific needs.
There you have it! We sincerely hope this clears up what a flexible workspace is and what it is not. Please reach out to us for any specific questions you may have and we’ll be happy to answer.
