Solutions for every freelancer and small business to explore:
The number of freelancers and remote workers in the South African workforce is definitely on the rise. With this, the shift towards co-working and other flexible workspace options will continue to play a prominent role in how and where we work. As the industry evolves, it appears many small businesses are using co-working spaces as a competitive advantage.
According to research published on African Business, by 2020 freelancers in South Africa are expected to make up 50% of the full-time work force. Many of these individuals work from home, but a growing percentage find co-working spaces attractive and beneficial to how they work. Co-workers report that their workspaces positively impact the ways they engage in their work and they find value in being part of a community of likeminded professionals.
Flexispace offer beautiful hassle-free, flexible office solutions at their three locations in Gauteng. They have a no lease policy, so you can rent an office daily, weekly or monthly. “We see our co-working offices as a hotel – and because we are in the hospitality business, you can focus on your business while we take care of everything else”, says Flexispace Director, Geoff Edeling.
Co-working benefits more than just freelancing individuals. Many small business owners and start-up teams have discovered this perfect fit for their companies, too. The Flexispace offering allow freelancers and small companies alike to break out of the cubicle, the corporate box, or even the noisy coffee shop and offers them a chance to join a like-minded co-working community.
“I like a clean, well-kept office space that is not noisy”, says Flexispace tenant Robyn Mills. “This solution ticks all the boxes for us”. Fellow tenant Reinette Oelofsen-Muller adds “I love coming to work – my office feels like a home away from home. The people are very friendly, and my clients always point out how professional and quiet it is”.
Flexispace are able to offer a variety of office solutions – from private, lockable workspaces for one or a team of 2-10, to a distinct setting for your company. They also offer exclusive workspaces that would make any executive feel right at home, or you can opt for a virtual office so you can work from anywhere and still have the use of a meeting room or boardroom for an hour or more when you need to get your “professional on” and meet with clients.
The newest of the Flexispace offices are located in Eagle Canyon Office Park, Randparkridge.
