A once untapped market, flexible work spaces have had exponential growth in Australia in recent years with 26 per cent more locations available for businesses.

There are many important things to consider when choosing a flexible office space that is right for you and your business. 

Determine your Needs

It is important to scope out your business requirements when researching flexible working spaces. Take stock of your priorities, what your business needs to survive and what kind of support it needs to thrive.

Here are some useful questions to ask yourself:

Are you a small to medium business with the potential to scale up soon?

Will your work need reliable access to a printer?

Do you have meetings frequently and require a fully equipped private meeting room?

What internet speed do you need?

What Kind of Community would you like to surround yourself with?

While professionalism is paramount, sharing a space with people whose company you enjoy on a personal level is also key.

Collective_100 is a flexible space as it provides the privacy of office spaces in combination with communal areas perfect for networking or simply having a chat. The privacy of the office spaces upholds a sense of professionalism with the communal spaces also providing a more relaxed feel. 

Our office spaces are already home to a diverse range of successful, established national and multinational companies such as Nespresso, Marlin Brands, Emprevo, Mavenlink, Urgo Medical and Metric. 

Have a look at a flexible working space’s social events and common areas. Do some research about their members to get an idea of the kinds of people you’ll be sharing your days with.

How do you like to work?

Consider how you prefer to work, ask yourself a few questions to be able to find an office situation that will work for you.

Do you like to work collaboratively surrounded by lots of people? Are you more productive in quiet isolation?

Collective_100 provides quiet office spaces ranging from 2 person private offices to 13 person private office spaces, as well as meeting rooms and communal areas for collaboration. 

How about changes of scenery or travel?

Collective_100 provides a beautiful rooftop overlooking the city for you to work outside, or our communal areas house large windows providing exceptional light and exceptional views that make it a nice change from your office space. 

What hours do you find you are most productive?
