You’ve probably heard the term “co-working”, or at least understand the theory of collaborative workspaces. But you may not have considered how it might revolutionise how you work. The truth is, even without COVID’s impact, the workspace needed a revamp. We’re going to look at why collaborative workspaces are the ideal solution to upgrading traditional workspaces.
If you’re still working remotely, think back to your old office. It was never perfect; there was always some level of compromise that stopped you from excelling. Maybe it was a meeting space that wasn’t kitted out with everything you needed or a desk that was difficult to work at. It might sound insignificant, but these things ultimately add up. Worse than that, it can affect how you work and engage with your colleagues. This is even more important when it comes to facilitating collaboration. At Connect Space, we understand that collaboration is critical to businesses succeeding. By removing the obstacles to collaboration, everyone can contribute, and businesses run smoother. We go out of our way to make our clients have everything they need to succeed and embed collaboration into the layout of our workspaces.
The Energy of Collaborative Workspaces
Startups are some of the most vibrant and energetic organisations in the world. They need to be since they’re so dynamic and face new challenges every day. Unfortunately, big organisations tend to lose that vibrancy. You would probably too if your days always looked the same – clock in, sit at your desk, leave at the end of the day. We were inspired to bottle the energy that startups emanate and bring it into our own workspaces. We foster a collaborative culture, encouraging the sharing of ideas and brainstorming with those around you. Your tomorrow may look very different from today, simply because your “desk neighbours” might be someone new. We want you to feel this energy from the moment you step foot in our building and empower you to achieve more through collaboration.
Freedom from Owning
COVID-19 has shaken up the property market. Everyone needs somewhere to work, but few businesses are willing to take the risk of owning property. “Why risk it then?”, we like to ask. By entering an agreement with Connect Space, you’re in control of your access to our high-quality collaborative workspaces without taking on the liability of owning or maintaining a whole building. You may only need a few hours – so why get tied into paying for more than you need?
This works perfectly for individuals as well. As you’ve no doubt already seen, a home office isn’t a small commitment. To make a comfortable yet productive space requires work and investment. You’ve probably bought office equipment and thought about upgrading your Wi-Fi in the past year. These are big asks considering the amount of uncertainty the future holds.
We offer a simpler solution, one free of long-term commitments. Our agreements are tailored to what you need rather than forcing you into a one-size-fits-all package. There’s a great deal of freedom to go into work each day knowing that you won’t have to worry about a flickering lightbulb, the speed of your internet connection, or the printer ink levels – Connect Space has it under control!
We may have sold you on the idea of co-working, but now let’s talk about why you should do it at our Umhlanga office space. As a well-positioned development in the already bustling Umhlanga area, Beacon Rock is home to some of the big names in commerce and retail. With breath-taking ocean views, conveniently close to Gateway, and easily accessible from the M4 Highway, Beacon Rock is a thriving community that is ready to welcome you.
A major highlight of our Beacon Rock property is that it is a short 18-minute drive away from King Shaka International Airport. This makes it an ideal meeting point for businesses who travel or need a desk for the day while visiting Durban. Don’t risk dodgy Wi-Fi at a coffee shop, we have everything you need for a productive day – coffee included!
