Member Neha Atherton of June Studios, shares her thoughts on why Workplace was the right choice for her. Over to Neha . .
When we started out in April this year we knew a city centre base was key for us. We weren’t ready to take on a full private office but we wanted somewhere professional we could meet clients. We looked at a number of co-working spaces but Workplace was definitely the one for us for four key reasons:
The concierge style service
Jane, Louise and Adrian (the founders of workplace) come from a hospitality background. Their experience running large, successful hotels really shows in the level of service they provide. At Workplace you get so much more than just a co-working space. You are made to feel special and important as are your clients. The space is professional and people get serious work done but they also add in treats like cake Wednesdays, cheese and wine nights, quiz nights, strawberries and cream for Wimbledon, pumpkin treats for Halloween, all the extracurricular benefits you would get in a large company come with the package of just being a member at workplace.
The style and ambience
For us the ambience of Workplace just felt right. The style fits so well with our company identity and is comfortable and professional for our clients to meet in. Compared to some other sites we visited, it feel much more high-end and professional whilst still being approachable. The staff and other members are really friendly which is important to us and to our clients.
The location & parking
Workplace could not be better positioned! St. Peter Square tram stop is only 5 mins walk and Piccadilly and Oxford road train stations 10 and 5 mins respectively. It makes it easy for both us and our clients to reach no matter which part of town of the country we are coming from. On days when we do decide to drive the discounted parking rates of £7.50 per day can really make a difference as the cost of parking in the city can really add up!
It is easy to arrange corporate events, team building days and launch nights at Workplace. The team are attentive in assisting the organisation, catering and making sure that all guest at the event in are well take care of. Simple things like a coat rack area make the difference. Whether hiring the business lounge for a networking event, the boardroom for presentation meetings or a combination of the two for a team building activities Workplace has always been able to accommodate us.
Choosing any office space whether for hot desking, dedicated desk or private office is a very personal choice. The factors which made Workplace right for us are definitely unique to Workplace and they are why we now call it home.
