As the UK falls back into its second national lockdown in just under a year, most of us are wondering how our daily lives will change when it comes to our jobs. After many of us have converted our living rooms, kitchen tables and the lucky ones with spare rooms into part-time offices, many businesses are wondering – how will our office space evolve when the pandemic is over? Many companies are realising that whilst some prefer the workspace environment, many are happy in the comfort of their own home with a more flexible working lifestyle.

Due to the favourable working from home dynamic, our new satellite office service has proven popular with those who are changing their office strategy due to COVID-19. Having a satellite office can bring two or three locations together by having a central, satellite hub at the middle of all office locations. Employees can dip in and out of the office environment when required – attending meetings, workplace gatherings or simply to have a change of scenery. This gives you the advantage of having the office workplace without the need for several locations. You can read more about the advantages of satellite offices and what we offer as a service here.

Here at Hope Park Workspaces, we have implemented various safety precautions to protect both our staff, tenants and visitors from COVID-19. We’ve set up clear Perspex screens around the reception and seating area. Two-metre distance stickers on the floor around reception and the café area, plus Perspex screens protecting the café service section. We have also set up hand sanitizer stations around the building including the main entrance and exit doors to the building. Our cleaning team operates each morning and evening, servicing around the building and antibacterial cleaning hotspot surfaces such as door handles, security door buttons and Perspex screens.

As the COVID-19 pandemic is still a very current issue for all workspaces, we will continue to do our very best to keep all staff, tenants and visitors safe on our premises, as this issue develops.

Whilst we don’t know when the pandemic will be over, what we do know is that the workplace will most definitely be different – with companies both expanding and downsizing their office premises, it’s set to be an interesting year for business.
