Flex Works Differently
There are a number of differences between Direct Leasing and Flex. Length of term, inclusions, facilities and pricing all differ.
With shorter terms, typically 12 months, turnover of Flex office space is high. That makes it difficult for Leasing Agents to keep up with what's available and current prices and offers. That's where Rubberdesk comes in.
The fast-paced nature of the Flex market makes it fiercely competitive for Agents to get nominations, maintain control and secure fees. This is why Leasing Agents and Tenant Representatives use Rubberdesk as their Flex platform.
How to Spot a Potential Flex Enquiry
Here are just a few of "Flex Trigger Words" that Agents listen for in a tenant brief to give Coworking and Flex Office Space options:
Flex office space terms vary from one month to multiple years. However, the sweet spot where max incentives hit max flexibility is twelve months.
Break Clauses are a good way for occupiers to hedge their bets between longer-term incentives and the possibility that their needs change.
Quick to Move
Turnaround times for Flex have been as quick as the same day - from enquiry to sign to move-in. However, typically they are within a month or two, as the turnover of Flex office space is rapid, occupiers tend to look at what is available right now.
That's why speed to market is so important in securing fees for nominations and why Agents choose to have Rubberdesk in their corner.
Flexible and Growing
A private office is great for the team until overseas team members fly in or WFH colleagues come into the office. Flex puts coworking space alongside private offices - to handle intermittent growth requirements.
Similarly when ad hoc meetings or occasional boardrooms are required access to these spaces on a pay-as-you-go basis is the perfect way to cost-effectively flex and scale.
Growing businesses need more space in the future than they need now. That's why the Flex route is perfect. They are able to grow into larger offices when they need them as opposed to paying for an office that is too large today.
In volatile times, a business' forecast lacks certainty. Through Flex, companies can minimise their risk to suit their appetite, and adjust their physical footprint and terms as required.
Flex offices are turnkey and typically fully fitted with desks, chairs and pedestals. Ready to go, all an occupier needs are their people and technology.
Wifi and typically with server rack space and high speed fully redundant internet access, the IT teams on site can help occupiers with any technical queries.
Secure printing facilities are typically offered on a pay-as-you-go basis, meaning that occasional print users get the very best value without having to supply and pay for their own printer. Of course, if they want to, they can bring their own.
Meeting rooms, boardrooms, breakout spaces, kitchen areas and reception facilities are all big attractions for businesses, without the overhead of having to manage and maintain them.
Attracting staff back to the office is at front of mind for lots of companies coming out of the work-from-home era. Flex delivers vibrant spaces, activated by community teams that run engaging events ranging from breakfasts to after-hour events. A game changer for employee engagement.
National and International Network
For businesses that have an interstate or global footprint, access to multiple centres and business lounges is vital. Being able to book a meeting room in another location seamlessly makes working effectively easy.
There's an enormous variety of Flex offices available. From budget to premium and everything in between. One major difference between Flex and Direct Leases is that Flex often has lower security deposits of one or two months' rent.
Whatever the budget - there's a Flex office space out there.
