In 2017, business owners all over Australia are opting for serviced offices over traditional office space. The popularity of serviced offices is soaring and shows no sign of slowing down. What was once just a temporary solution for startups or remote teams has now become the workplace of choice for thousands of Australian businesses. This is why we find our serviced office in the Sydney CBD so popular. In fact, the supply of flexible office spaces in Australia has increased by 36% in the past year, which makes it one of the fastest-growing markets for this type of office space in the world.

SOI: Serviced Offices in Sydney CBD: a growing trend

So why is it that serviced offices, particularly in Sydney’s CBD, are becoming so popular? And is it a viable option for your business?

Don’t get bogged down with commitment

If you’ve previously worked from home and are considering taking the dive into a commercial office lease, you know how daunting the process is. So many things to consider:

  • Will having this size office be the right fit in the next three/six/twelve months?
  • What if your business isn’t growing like expected and the overheads of a commercial office lease start chewing through the funds?
  • Or what if the business goes boom and you need to accommodate more employees?

Being locked into a lease is stifling and frankly, the old way of doing things. With a serviced office, your space grows with your needs. At SOI, we offer some serious flexibility to allow you to change spaces as often as your needs do. Not only does this type of workspace arrangement foster growth, it’s also great if you do project-based work with contractors, etc. You can look at hiring office space for the duration of the contract, rather than being locked into a 12-month lease.
