COVID-19 has changed how we work, interact and how we do business. Like most companies, coworking spaces are hit with the pandemic and are experiencing the same issues.
Here are some of the steps which OUR HUB has taken to create the safest possible work environment for all our members and guests and also we give you predicitons about COVID-19 pandemic impact on coworking and office space.
Filip Oksenfeld, Chief Operating Officer at OUR HUB, with many years of professional experience in many diverse areas such as Sales, Business Development and Operations with specialities in Business Development, Sales, Flexible Workspace, Serviced Offices and Managed Office Solutions gives you forecast for coworking and Workspace after this pandemic.
How fast it took you to return on track from the crisis?
One of the most obvious consequences of coronavirus has been the massive rise in the number of people working from home. Some lessee have terminated the contracts, but these days we have also new lessee and demands for coworking.
If Covid-19 has taught us one thing, it is that being able to pivot, and rapidly adapt to the almost daily challenges that the pandemic has brought with it, have been key so we are coming back on track.
These days things are starting to get back how they used to be because we have implemented safety and health measures. There is optimism that coworking spaces will see increased demand during the months coming out of the pandemic.
What are your predictions for short and long term for your company?
Short-term effects are already apparent, the utilisation of coworking in the COVID 19 crisis has fallen by 14% compared to pre-pandemic levels, and at the same time demands for private office has risen by 10%. As lessees return to their offices, business continuity and operational resilience are top priorities and since flexible space is fast and easy to acquire, companies are likely to turn to flex solutions to support portfolio reductions and cost-saving strategies during this time of economic uncertainty.
The recent outbreak of COVID-19 is affecting everyone’s lives, the coworking industry is no exemption. OUR HUB will continue to evolve as a result of the pandemic and flexibility will be trend in the future. I think the main challenge the industry will face is making people feel safe, healthy and comfortable and OURHUB is doing everything to fell them safe and do I think there is bright future for our company . There is no doubt people will seek more flexible, safe and economic workspaces.
Now more than ever, information and communication are vital strengths, Filip also says.
