Before you decide whether to work from home or choose a coworking space in London, here are some factors that will help you make an informed decision: 

Your workspace plays a significant role in your company culture, productivity and efficiency. The right environment can help your employees become more productive and engaged at work. A poor setup can result in the feeling of disconnection and lack of engagement. What’s more, the right office address can promote many new business opportunities and improve contact with your clients.

If you are a London-based business, you most likely already recognize all the opportunities that this City can bring. If, on the other hand, you are still deciding whether to locate your office here, read our helpful guide for renting your office in London.

Give your business the right address

Whether you are a FinTech, media, business consultancy, law firm, or IT company, having the right address is a strategic move that can bring you exciting business opportunities and new clients. There are hundreds of coworking spaces located all over London, so you can find a borough or specific city area that suits you best. Many London coworking spaces are also conveniently located within minutes of transport stops. Thanks to the developed Underground, Docklands Light Railway (DLR), and Tramlink system, you can strategically locate your office with easy access for those commuting to and from work. You are sure to find an office to rent in Canary Wharf, Westminster, Soho, Shoreditch, Camden & Islington or any other area of London.

Save money

Working from home seemed to be cost-saving, but over time we saw that it came at a different price. Though initially, we enjoyed the time and effort saved on the daily commute, we soon found out a workplace is much more than a desk and a chair. Electricity, Wi-Fi, printing services, or even the right ergonomic furniture can be quite costly when working from home. When opting for a serviced office or a coworking space in London, these buildings come already furnished, fitted, and decorated. Renting a coworking space provides you with a place to work and also available meeting rooms, presentation screens, printer setup, conference rooms, coffee machines, and other kitchen utilities. Some coworking communities even offer gyms, game rooms, or accounting services. Choosing a coworking office to great a extent eliminates the additional responsibility and expenses of managing an office, or the frustration of not having some of these resources available in your home office.

Stay connected

Working from home means that you often don’t get much exposure to office culture and contact with work colleagues is limited and virtual. Though video calls are a huge advantage in the globalized world we live in, video conferencing platforms can not replace face-to-face interactions that can be so motivating at work. Work culture thrives when employees can chat and exchange ideas naturally throughout the day. Lack of contact can result in employees experiencing increased loneliness, anxiety, and stress.

“One of the most appreciated advantages of working in a coworking space is the environment that fosters and opens up for collaboration. With this in mind, [coworking] spaces are designed in the premise of a high coefficient of common areas.”
