It is timely at the start of 2021 for many organisations to think about office space, particularly given during lockdown in 2020 when many staff worked from home which has for many organisations continued, with staff working from home a lot more than pre-lockdown. This raises questions for many organisations, such as, is a desk needed for each staff member, how much space do we need?
You may want to consider The Kollective, a co-working space developed specifically for the not-for-profit sector where you choose how many desks you need, and not necessarily a desk for each staff member if you have part time staff and/or staff working from home for a day or two a week. You’re not locked into a lease, its month by month and you get the added advantage of working in a modern inspiring space where you can also engage with like minded organisations and also benefit from the social enterprises and community minded businesses that reside at The Kollective. You may find this would also be more cost effective than your current premises.
If The Kollective is not suitable for your organisation I’d really encourage you to become a non-residential member and benefit from being able to work at The Kollective when you want to get away from the office or you are in between meetings, for $120/year, it’s very cost effective.
