Our relationship to office space is changing, and Intelligent Office is here to meet the demand
It’s no secret that the recent pandemic changed the American workforce in fundamental ways. Millions of businesses were forced to transition to remote work throughout the crisis, and now the economy is reopening. Business owners are rethinking their relationship with office space for good. Considering flexible workspace franchises has never been more in demand than right now.
The Wall Street Journal recently published an article, “Flexible Offices Will Be Crowded After Covid-19,” which focuses on why business owners are choosing flexible workspace in record numbers.
“Few companies will be in a rush to sign a 10-year lease until they understand how employees will divide their time between home and the office,” the paper reports. “Some may turn to looser office arrangements longer term, accelerating a trend already building before the pandemic. Real-estate analytics firm Green Street estimates flexible leases will grow from around 2% of total U.S. office space today to one-tenth by the end of the decade.”
Flexible Workplaces On The Rise
The growth of the flexible workspace industry reflects the powerful shift away from traditional office spaces with expensive long-term leases. Entrepreneur magazine reports in the article, “What’s Keeping Coworking Spaces Relevant,” that “the flex workspace industry has seen about 1000% of growth over the last decade. It is anticipated to account for 30% of all office space by 2030.”
This perfectly positions Intelligent Office to capitalize on the enormous demand for flexible workers and meet the ongoing needs of small business owners.
“The way people work today has changed,” says Brian Farris, Brand President of Intelligent Office. “Business owners need solutions that make sense for them. That could be a permanent office they rent on a short-term basis, or a meeting room they need on a drop-in basis. Intelligent Office provides space clients want to be in. We’re proud to meet with their clients regularly, or as needed. Every business owner has specific needs, and Intelligent Office is ready to meet them.”
Why do business owners choose Intelligent Office?
Unlike the rest of the flexible workspace industry, Intelligent Office starts with space, but we don’t stop there. We recognize that business owners need more than just office space or meeting rooms. They need a partner that will support them in growing their business and exceeding their goals.
This is why Intelligent Office is the future of the American workforce. The services we provide to clients range from answering their phones, virtual assistant services, scheduling appointments, and more.
“As a new franchise owner, this is the right time to come into this business,” Farris says. “You have the opportunity to not only sell space, but also sell an array of services none of our competitors can offer. You can provide reception services, as well as more comprehensive services to become an extension of your clients’ teams. We make it easy for you to provide these services, as we’ve invested significantly into support that allows you to focus on growing your businesses. We take care of implementing the services you sell to your clients.”
