Depending on the type workspace that you choose, based on your needs and work-style preferences, you can get anything from “four walls and a desk” in a Hot-Desk or CO-working environment — which some people on-the-go and with little need or value for interaction with other workers, relish — especially because it’s usually the lowest cost workspace option available…to a fancy, private office, with a receptionist and a full support staff at your disposal.
The serviced and alternative Workspace industry includes many different types of workspace, office and meeting room rental plans available by the hour, day, week, month, year or longer. And there are varying degrees of services that run the gamut from quick in-and-out with minimal, sufficient basic services, to elaborate high-hospitality service-and-relationship based workplaces that promote community, business development, networking and fun social activities.
Each wing of the Workspace Universe provides a different level of services and features. Among the most popular features, for those who want more than “four walls and a desk”, include:
- full receptionist and answering services; mail and package receipt and forwarding services;
- instant high-speed internet access, state-of-the-art equipment and technology and on-site IT support;
- flexible terms, with the ability to scale up in size, as the business grows; and
- the peace of mind knowing that a team of experienced professionals are handling all your workspace and office support needs so that you can concentrate on your work, what you do best, or what makes you more money.
