For And Against Flexible Offices


Uncertainty, about the economy as businesses battle with the impact of Coronavirus is leading companies to weigh up leased offices against more flexible or serviced options.

Early during lockdown we conducted a series of webinars looking at how companies could return to the office. The webinars can be found here

We identified reasons for and against considering flexible offices over a conventional lease:

Reasons for a flexible office

  • Mitigate financial risk
  • Flexibility
  • Speed and simplicity of occupation
  • Lower one off and up front costs.

And against a flexible office

  • Control and Privacy
  • Is increased workspace density an increased risk?
  • Brand Control
  • Lifetime Costs

As head of BBG’s flexible office team I work to help our clients source and negotiate the right options. I elaborate on the for and against points in the video below.

Please share your views with us by the comments section, or if you’re thinking about reviewing your office provision please get in touch.
