Flexible Workspace: Rethinking Your Corporate Real Estate Strategy

Colliers REview Singapore blog - Flexible workspace and rethinking your corporate real estate strategy

Unlock the ability to manage your office space requirements, lease commitments and financial obligations with greater flexibility

The ability for flexible workspace providers to offer a network of alternative office solutions, and not fixed-point solutions like a traditional tenant-landlord arrangement, will create more flexibility for those seeking greater ease of access and exit offerings.

Demand in flexible workspace is expected to increase as markets recover from the current economic and social climate. In a recent Colliers International survey of 4,000 occupiers, over 50% considered a flexible workspace solution to accommodate a longer-term office.

The increased variety of products provided by flexible workspace operators has unlocked the ability for organisations to actively manage their office space commitments and minimise lead times in signing a lease, lengthy procurement processes for fit out and also the need for capital which could be better deployed elsewhere.
