What’s Included With a Serviced Office?

What features do you get with a serviced office? From fantastic canteen facilities to breakout space, we look at what’s on offer when you choose a fully serviced office with Arrow…

What is a serviced office? 

If you’ve ever moved offices and have been frustrated by the sheer volume of ‘stuff’ that’s part and parcel of a move – from arranging phone lines to buying office furniture to finding a new cleaning company – a serviced office will feel like a very welcome alternative.

Fully serviced is the all-in option. Everything is provided which means moving couldn’t be easier and takes up far less of your time and headspace. Budgeting is easier too because there are no nasty hidden costs.

Having your office space in Arrow means that whenever there’s a problem – a door that won’t lock, a heater that won’t heat or a desk with an annoying wobble – one call will sort it out. That can save you valuable hours in terms of sourcing maintenance people.   

Breakout space

A space to escape. A space to relax. A space to work together in an environment that doesn’t involve desks. Breakout areas offer plenty of versatility, but their underlying value is in wellbeing because it’s one thing to say you support your people’s right to take a break from their desks; it’s quite another to provide a space for it to happen.

Health Benefits of Coffee in the Workplace

Is there a line each morning at the coffee machine in your workplace? Do your employees joke that they can’t work—or even get out of bed—until they get their cup of Joe? By early afternoon, does the coffee pot need to be replenished?

If this sounds familiar, your employees are among the 82 percent of workers who consume 2.1 java drinks daily—with consumption increasing with age. Indeed, there’s even a holiday called National Coffee Day. But beyond the energy boost your employees seek, there are actually many health benefits of coffee in the workplace.

Relieves Stress

While coffee has been shown to boost energy levels, it also serves to relax and de-stress many employees. And there’s a social aspect to drinking coffee, which aids in company culture and is mentally comforting to employees. Hence, the routine of “taking a coffee break.”

Protects Against Diseases

Coffee contains antioxidants that help protect against diseases. According to a study by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, drinking four or five cups of coffee daily has shown to reduce the risk of Parkinson’s disease nearly 50 percent in comparison to zero or small amounts of caffeine. It also can result in a decreased risk of Type 2 diabetes.

Boosts Productivity and Energy

As a stimulant, the caffeine in coffee increases your employees’ energy levels to help them become more alert and productive. This explains the feeling of a need to drink coffee to keep going strong. And some say it may help your employees to learn new things faster, as caffeine has the potential to improve short-term memory and problem solving.

Caffeine Has Limits

Your employees’ tolerance levels to drink coffee and still function properly without feeling jittery may vary. Still, there are suggested limits for everyone. Up to 400 milligrams of caffeine—roughly four cups of brewed coffee—is considered “safe.” Flavored, sweetened coffee contains more sugar and isn’t necessarily healthy, as compared with drinking it straight black. Like any caffeinated drink, addiction is possible with frequent consumption.

So it’s OK if your employees have a cup here and there, as the health benefits of coffee are numerous. It’s just important to consume it in moderation.

10 reasons reasons to chose a coworking space

1. You work when and where needed:  The contracts are flexible and they can be adapted corresponding to your needs.

2. All inclusive fee: in a coworking space all of the duties needed to take care of in an office (connection, heating, electricity, furniture purchase, space management and cleaning services) are all included. No more wasting time to pay bills, the time dedicated to work will be exclusively dedicated to what you do best.

3. Optimising resources: thanks to the office dynamism and variation of professionals it is possible to expand or reduce the space occupied within a couple of hours, optimising resources at their maximum.

4. Your personal non-office: the stimulating atmosphere adds up to the comfort granted by a unique space with an innovative design targeted to work, without any typical office rules, but also to relax and create a network.

5. Networking: encountering people, sharing experiences and meeting new potential clients. Sharing spaces aids the interchange of experiences and professional development.

6. Job opportunities: working in a shared space will enable you to get in touch with many potential clients. The opportunities multiply due to the fact that co-working spaces also ensure online exposure through profile platforms for all the professional residents and the services they offer.

7. Develop your competences: co-working spaces offer the chance to meet programmers, web developers, video-makers, startups and many more professionals that can help develop your expertise in a variety of different aspects.

8. Formation programs and conferences: are you interested in getting to know more about growth hacking, UX design or e-commerce? Or taking part in the most disruptive conferences on digital topics? In a coworking space all of this is possible: workshops and events based on what the coworkers are interested in, are regularly organized.

9. Strategic locations: the centrality of a location and the accessibility to public transport are fundamental requirements; co-working spaces open in well connected areas and easily reachable by car or by using public transport.

10. Increase in productivity and creativity: Working at home is relatively easy and convenient, but sometimes all you need is the typical buzzing background noise found in work places in order to keep you wide-awake and focused. It has been found out that the majority of people result in being more productive in a co-working space than at home. The creation of networks, construction of competences and social relationships are what enrich expertise and personal and professional experience. The balance between working and private life will be extremely benefitted by the separation of environments.

The Multiple Benefits of Our Serviced Offices

In this article, we look at the variety of advantages of flexible workspaces. Discover the unique benefits that come with a managed office space that Arrow Serviced Offices offers .

Serviced office spaces are designed to be as dynamic as the people who will use them. They’re functional, flexible and stylish. Furthermore, serviced office spaces tend to be affordable, low-cost options which is particularly ideal for startups, freelancers and SMEs, meaning they can work in a fully equipped office without worrying about the costs of setting up an actual office. The list of benefits are endless, but we’ve narrowed it down to just a few of the main highlights of working in a serviced office space, such as Arrow Serviced Offices, below:

Already fitted out

A Serviced Office means you won’t have to worry about chairs, desks, drawers or filing cabinets. In addition, the space will be decorated and configured on request. Were you to rent a leased office, you would need to purchase all furniture as the space is typically presented as an empty shell. Fitting out an office can be expensive and requires a lot of time and effort.

Outsourced Staffing Costs

Serviced Offices come with professional support staff such receptionists, technical support teams and maintenance staff. In-house staff that can perform ad hoc tasks without the need to employ a dedicated team member to assist with these duties can be a profound way to manage costs. Arrow will always ‘go the extra mile’ when it comes to supporting its Members. In addition to an impressive IT infrastructure, our Members get the best of both worlds – saving on staffing costs and gaining expert knowledge and advice.

Serviced Offices

Impressive Facilities

Serviced Offices will often come with facilities that you can choose to pay for according to use. Finding a leased office with a meeting room and a conference space can quickly escalate costs. The ability to have constant access to these kinds of facilities without paying when it is not in use is an undeniable bonus. Again, Arrow makes sure all its Member’s needs are met in terms of the availability of space. Everything from Hot Desks to impressive meeting rooms are available on request.

Serviced Office Kitchens

Exceptional Locations

Leased offices become increasingly expensive when entering key business districts in major cities, and companies looking to establish a presence in these ares have traditionally had to pay steeply for the privilege. Because you only pay for the space you need in a Serviced Office, it is possible to grow your business in prime locations without the traditional costs associated with a standard lease. Arrow Serviced Offices stands out as an example of Serviced Offices providing businesses with an opportunity to establish a business presence in Dublin with close proximity to M50 and just 3 minutes walk from the luas and bus routes.

Networking Opportunities

The opportunities to network in Serviced Offices, with their communal areas and break out rooms, are virtually endless. Working in a constant atmosphere of collaboration and healthy communication inevitably supports growth and develops communities of likeminded individuals. At Arrow we are committed to supporting the success of our Members. Knowing that networking is essential to the growth of our community, we ensure that our Serviced Offices are fully integrated with our communal areas.

Community Serviced Offices

Flexibility First

Any company that wants to expand takes a risk renting a traditionally leased office space. There are no guarantees that they can grow into the space, nor can they be totally confident they will not outgrow it quickly. Choosing a larger leased space is a long term commitment as you are typically bound by a 3-10 year contract. Choosing a Serviced Office gives businesses the option to rent a space that directly conforms to their exact requirements while their provider will allow them to expand to larger spaces as their outfit grows. Helping our Members grow and succeed is at the heart of our ethos.

What are Serviced Offices?

A serviced office is a furnished and fully-equipped pay-as-you-use office space, located in a building managed by an operator. Operators will rent anything from a single Dedicated Host Desk to a full Office Suite to their clients, giving them access to ready-to-use office space on flexible terms.

As opposed to the hidden costs of conventional leased office space, which might include maintenance, facility costs, furnishing and equipment installation, serviced offices are already fully kitted out, and provide transparent monthly fees. This enables businesses to scale up or down as required.

Key Benefits of Serviced Offices

1. Flexible, short-term leases

Serviced office rental terms are flexible, and many spaces offer contracts for as briefly as one month. This is ideal for businesses looking to remain agile and work in a space that can expand or reduce at short notice, in line with their business plan.

2. Cost-effective with no downtime

Businesses pay only for the space they need in a serviced office, and most are furnished and pre-cabled, providing access to high-quality equipment. This means no downtime while moving in, and can help to free up extra cash for other business priorities.

3. Access to all the facilities needed to run a business

Standard facilities in serviced offices include fully-staffed reception desks, kitchens, lunch areas, cleaning and maintenance services, meeting rooms and networking spaces. Businesses can also access additional pay-as-you-use services and facilities. There are no hidden costs, which allows for easy budgeting.

4. Access to new markets

Business centres, executive offices or serviced offices are available in several locations around the world, giving users a wide choice when it comes to establishing a base. This gives businesses the opportunity to set up at an address that would otherwise be unaffordable, and also provides access to business centres around the world.

Who Uses Serviced Offices?

Start-ups and entrepreneurs: Serviced offices are ideal for businesses and startups looking for office space without being tied down to long-term contracts and hidden costs.

Businesses expanding into new markets: Businesses looking to expand into new regions or countries and who require access to business centres around the world with short-term rental options.

Businesses experiencing growth: Large companies tied into a conventional leased space they have outgrown and who are looking for an interim space for employees or teams.

Project-based teams: Teams who need a fully-equipped workspace in a specific location for a short period while fulfilling a contract.
