When most people think of working in an office, the first thing that comes to mind is a bustling city centre. But what if you could have all of those amenities and more without having to fight for a spot to park or cram onto a crowded train or bus?
Offices outside of the city centre offer several benefits that are worth considering for your business. Keep reading to learn more about what these benefits are and why they might be right for you.
One of the biggest benefits of working outside of the city centre is that you're closer to home. This is a huge advantage. Not only are you avoiding a long commute but you will also save on travel cost, parking fees and have more time to spend with your loved ones. Plus, a shorter journey time means we are being kinder to the environment.
If you are fed up with the daily hunt for a car parking space or, the ever-rising cost of city-centre parking is leaving you out of pocket, an office outside of the city centre is definitely worth considering.
Many out-of-town offices have their own car park which are usually free to employees and outside visitors. Plus, as they are located in quieter locations they are normally surrounded by roads with little to no parking restrictions.
Working outside the city centre means that you typically have a shorter commute time. Employees can get to and from work quickly, research shows this helps reduce stress levels, increases productivity and creates a better work/life balance.
Alongside the above benefits, a shorter commute is also safer, as it minimises contact time with others and decreases the chances of being infected with COVID.
In a nutshell, working in an office outside the city centre means you are closer to home, car parking is available along with excellent transport links including buses, trains and even sometimes planes all within walking distance!
City centre offices are pricey! Choosing an out-of-city serviced office reduces business costs (cheaper business rates, rent, utilities etc) but, it also reduces costs for employees and office visitors (parking fees, petrol cost, Clean Air Zone charges etc).
The above benefits will also help you attract new talent to the business who would otherwise be put off due to travel time, costs etc.
The COVID pandemic has proven that we don’t need to waste time travelling to and from our workplace and has taught us that time is precious and should be used wisely.
With excellent transport links and being outside of the recently introduced Birmingham Clean Air Zone Charge, working outside the City Centre is something that should be seriously considered.
