As lockdown restrictions begin to lift, businesses across the UK are implementing rigorous safety measures to make their premises and buildings safe for staff, customers, contractors and visitors.
Some businesses will be fortunate to have adequate space to be able to move furniture and equipment around which will mean that employees will have the space they need to return to work and continue where they left off as much as possible.
Other businesses, however, won’t have this luxury and will have to find alternative ways to get their employees back in the workplace. They may decide to introduce a phased approach to returning to the workplace, perhaps with a rota in place to ensure that safe distances are maintained. Or they may make the decision to continue to work from home if they can still work efficiently and their service levels are not affected.
For some workers who have enjoyed working at home and not having a long commute each day, finding a professional coworking space closer to home is a great solution and is key to their productivity and work efficiency. Three months of making do with a make-shift office at home on the kitchen table or in a corner of the bedroom have taken their toll and now is the time to move to a different environment where other workers will also be based, but with the peace of mind that all safety protocols have been adhered to in order to control the spread of coronavirus.
Coworking spaces in Hertfordshire offer a flexible working environment and a choice of membership options to suit different working needs. Offering a collaborative office space, with attractive facilities, you only pay for the desk or desks that you use. You will be able to continue to go to work in a shared office space ad with the benefit of it being a safe environment to work in.
The UOE Business Hub offers flexible hot desking and reserved resident desk space for its members. Located in the centre of Hertford, there’s high speed WiFi, meeting room space, free tea and coffee and discounts in the store downstairs which also offers a full Post Office service. Our ground floor meeting room comfortably seats 6 people but due to current social distancing guidelines, we have reduced this to 2 people. With a fresh air circulation system which pumps fresh air from outside into the room and swaps out the internal air, this makes it up to 7 times cleaner than just internal air so it’s perfect for interviews and One2One meetings.
With no hidden costs, coworking is the perfect option for people who are looking to work from home on a permanent basis but choose a more professional environment to work in.
