Dedicated Desk or Hot Desk, what works better for you?

Dedicated Desks are your permanent business home in a shared space.  There are many options of hot-desking but if you want somewhere permanent to work from but not the expense of a full-on office what are your options?

A dedicated desk is ideal for anyone from freelancers, writers, entrepreneurs to start-ups.  It even works for small groups of people who can secure dedicated desks in a group and work as a team.  It works for people who like the coworking vibe but don’t want to sacrifice their privacy.

In this space at Workplace you get your own mini-office with a desk chair and lockable cabinet.  You can leave your laptop, gym kit and photos of your dog.  With this option if you are not in, nobody else takes your space, it is yours and yours alone!

 

Dedicated Desks – Private Space

One of the great benefits of a dedicated desk is that it can be a place of privacy.  Dedicated desks put you away from prying eyes and coworking colleagues.   At a dedicated desk your business benefits from keeping yours and your client private matters discreet.  At a dedicated desk though, you still enjoy all the perks of being part of a bigger community.  This community will encourage you, support you and often feed you!    Your membership included all the frothy coffee you can drink, custard creams and monthly breakfast and cake meetups.

A Place to transition from

Contracts are month to month.  If you need to downscale, up-scale or move to a different city you are never going to end up paying for something that you no longer use.  A dedicated desk is a little more expensive than a hot desk but not as much as you think for the benefits.

Economical Office Space

Dedicated Desks offer one of the most inexpensive options for office space.  At Workplace investing in a dedicated desk not only gets you the desk, but you also buy into something much bigger.  You can use our reception services, meet in the lounge and get reduced rates on meeting rooms.

At Workplace a fulltime hot-desk membership is £225 per month and for the guarantee of space, a dedicated desk is just £50 more per month.

Best of Both Worlds

If you are a person who works best alone you can work in a quiet space.  If you then want to have someone to chat to over a coffee during a break or share your lunch with you can.

At Workplace you are not restricted to your desk all day, every day.  When you want to come out from behind your desk you can take a call in the lounge or join it at a hot desk.   There are also events and meetups that you can join in with or avoid depending on your feelings.

Mailing Address – 8 benefits

Mailing Address membership is growing very quickly at Workplace. This is a part of the business that has surprised us as we didn’t know very much about it at all before we started Workplace. We have since learned that having a Virtual Office has so many amazing benefits and here are 8 to get you started.

  1. Taking a mailing address in a prominent location gives you a broader scope to be able to use your web advertising in that area.   Growing your business through google searches at a very low cost is a considerable advantage.
  2. With a mailing address, you have the opportunity to invest in growing your business in any location without paying for actual floor space. You have a prestigious address for a fraction of  the cost of a square foot of office space in central Manchester
  3. Your mail arrives at your office and is then forwarded on to you, scanned to you, or you can collect it.
  4. Your mailing address is the only one your customers and suppliers will see.  You don’t have to put your home address on all your information which might otherwise be your only option.
  5. At Workplace if you have a mailing address you have the option to use our hot-desking or meeting rooms on an add hock daily bases for a daily fee.  You can meet clients and suppliers again for a very low cost and with complete flexibility.
  6. Statistics tell us that over 2.5 million of us work from home, and this is growing. A proper mailing address makes you seem like you are part of something bigger and not just giving your home address.
  7. At Workplace, unlike many mailing address companies, we invite you to join in events and the goings-on at Workplace which make you feel part of our community.
  8. You not only have a mailing address, but you have a place to meet up with other colleagues at one address, which is a great advantage when growing a remote business.

Melanie Tweddle of Abode Consulting has a mailing address at Workplace and says;

We originally took a mailing address as we needed a central business address for 5 of us who work all over the country under one company name and we wanted the kudos of an M1 address.  However, it has given us much more than this as we now meet up at Workplace as a team once a month and some of us also use the address for client meeting which we can play for on a daily basis.  This is a massive advantage as our clients think this is our office and not just an address and makes us feel that we are part of a much bigger company.  We also get invited to the training and support events which we did not expect.  Workplace also arranged a group Christmas Party which we are able to join in.  All in all, what we thought was going to be a faceless mailing address has turned out to be so much more.
