Quality office properties and coworking spaces inspire the people with entrepreneurial mindset
The Covid-19 pandemic changed many things, and the way we work was among the most significantly affected. Work from home became almost the norm and big offices lost their appeal. However, the changes were not as deep as doomsday 2020 prognoses predicted. The office did not disappear. It remains the main space where both big and small companies conduct their activities. It is irreplaceable. Decision making, suggesting and discussing ideas and just socialising with other people is easier in person, in a shared room, rather than on Zoom.
Something more. The recovery of the economy in 2020 reboosted demand for office spaces. In mid-2022 Colliers reported in Sofia an increase of rented office spaces of 30% compared to the same period of the previous year. The tenants' requirements also changed. Following their policies to provide safe work environment, they seek layouts that provide employees with enough natural light, individual space, access to clean air and greenery. Visionary companies also look for buildings that meet the latest requirements for green and passive construction with lower utility bills.
Another key trend on the market is the increased interest in coworking spaces. Coworking spaces provide them with the opportunity to have work stations for one or more employees without investing a lot in furnishing and equipment. When working in a shared space the contacts with the space's other clients are inevitable and even desired – they improve the psychological climate, expand the options for socialising and create an environment for the birth of new ideas and partnerships.
When talking about outstanding coworking spaces, one of the first names to come to mind is Biz Hub | Cowork | Events (Sofia, Mladost 1, 9 Anna Akhmatova St, phone: +359 877 355 553, www.bizhub.bg). You will find it in Mladost, Sofia's business heart. Biz Hub offers a variety of spaces for work, meetings and events in a modern, pleasant ambiance. The wonderful terrace is the perfect place for a presentation or a team building, or quiet relaxation after hard work. Biz Hub has everything you need for trouble-free work – private offices, high-speed Internet connection, a server, a parking, free coffee and tea, gaming and relaxation zones, and more. Indeed, an excellent space for both business and people.
The dynamic of the modern day brought about as well innovative concepts for distance work such as the services of YourSpace (Sofia, 17A Aksakov St, www.yourspace.bg). The platform provides companies and individuals the opportunity to do their job effectively from specially selected places in Bulgaria and Europe, and to combine business and pleasure. A mountain hut, a seaside beach, an inviting café or coworking space – you only need to decide what your employees’ workstation should look like and book it through the platform. Thanks to YourSpace you will have the best of the two worlds - full technical support so that your employees work effectively and rich options for active or passive recreation that make them happier and more productive. This is why visionary companies already included YourSpace workstations in their social packages.
The business recovered successfully after the global "shutdown" caused by the restrictions of the Covid-19 pandemic. The new realities definitely show that the future will belong to the active, the adaptable, the visionary – particularly when they work at a suitable office or shared space.
