293 views

Published on

Unlike the old traditional Design Office, Deeo are not constrained by location or a ‘local’ employee model that dictates both expensive overhead costs & a limited number of ‘minds’ available to work on client projects. Instead, the most skilled & appropriate designers & engineers Deeo have, across the UK & globally, are bought together to work within the Deeo’s unique virtual design office. No matter where they are – their home office, a co-working facility or at our customer’s offices, they all produce great things!

As some of our team need a ‘place to go’ to do their best work, we have put together this presentation to explain a little more about the growth & advantages of co-working facilities & some of the best we have found across the UK!

If you haven’t got the luxury of a dedicated Home Office where you can lock yourself away & work from, a Co- Working Space is probably for you. This doesn't mean you cant work from home sometimes – its just if you need that ‘place to go’ routine – a co-working space is the way we either provide or suggest our team work from. Co-Working Space? Co-working is the use of an office or working environment by people who are either able to work from any location, self-employed or part of a start-up needing to get going without the expense of a dedicated office. Many members of our team working in these work environments & they truly love it! An innovative way to work Today, about half a million people are working in co- working spaces. Reports are saying that in 2016 we’ll see over 10,000 co- working spaces available!

Distribution of This document only permitted by author Using Deeo As Your Design Partner Working in Todays World Our team, no matter if they are working in their home office or at a co-working space, have such an advantage on the Old ‘bricks & mortar’ office environment where everyone has to come – from wherever they are – to all work in one place & within set times. We eliminate these huge amount of inefficiencies in the Old way of working & our team benefit from many things such as: • They have more job control. • Their workspace is accessible 24/7. • They can decide whether to put in a long day when they have a deadline or want to show progress, or can decide to take a long break in the middle of the day to go to the gym. • In a co-working space they can choose whether they want to work in a quiet space so you can focus, or in a more collaborative space with shared tables where interaction is encouraged. • Minimal Commute – they either go into their home office & start, or drive a short distance to a local co- working space & connect up. No more traffic & save money!

Distribution of This document only permitted by author Using Deeo As Your Design Partner Co-Working Review Here is a review from a Deeo consultant currently using a co-working space: “Working within a co-working office environment has provided me with many benefits. Not only does it allow in maintaining a daily routine, team environment & general company, it also provides me with continual networking opportunities both professionally & socially. “Desk shared offices, such as the type I use through Indy Cube (Wales) offers great financial benefits in comparison with commercial office hire solutions. You have access to the best internet connections, storage lockers, conference rooms, chilled out areas, kitchens, shower rooms & 24 hour access, all within a single monthly subscription package, with no minimum contract periods. & at approximately half the cost of the corporate office options, the unlimited free tea & coffee is the 'icing on the cake!' I highly recommend any one doing the same in a bid to escape the family if you haven’t got a Home Office!”
