The Business Centre: The Flexible Office Solution

In business? Does working from home really make sense?
, / 684

Is your home-based business prepared for escalating energy costs? Perhaps you can navigate the escalating energy costs by choosing a flexible, serviced office solution. The Business Centre’s Manager, Emma Mason, explores the benefits.

It’s no secret that everyone in the UK is coming to grips with the sharp rises in household energy costs planned for 2023. The biggest increase is expected in April as the government’s “price guarantee” policy falls away, effectively reducing its assistance paying for household energy.

If you’re running a small, established business from home, this could spell trouble if you aren’t able to manage escalating energy costs. Simply heating your home and using electricity in the same place you live, and work could have major implications for your business and the quality of life for you and your employees.

Does working from home make financial sense?
We can’t help but ask, is working from home really worth it? It was a necessity during the pandemic and became somewhat of a norm as many businesses adopted a remote work model. But amid energy cost rises, does it make more financial sense for small established businesses to move away from the home base and into an affordable office space where their money goes further? We believe it is, not to mention the benefits of interaction with others.

Curtail the rising cost of keeping the lights on…
Serviced offices, like those at The Business Centre (Cardiff) Ltd, are one way you can curtail the rising cost of keeping the lights on. It’s also the perfect option if you’re expanding and your current lease is ending. A small monthly fee covers your utilities and provides you with a fully furnished executive office tailored to your business, a range of exclusive business support services, all the necessary infrastructure, and the freedom to cancel your lease at any time after a minimum of three months. Since 2008, we’ve been reinventing the commercial property sector with flexibility and financial freedom at the centre.

A one-of-kind business destination

Our flexible offices are the modern way of commercial leasing. We’ve created a thriving environment that inspires business growth, productivity, creativity, and freedom. This is facilitated through a range of services and amenities that make us a one-of-kind business destination.

Whether you’re hosting a meeting, training course, conference, or networking event, you will have access to a modern, spacious meeting room that’s complete with facilities and services tailored to your business – we even include a dedicated conference coordinator to manage the event from start to end.

Our big and fully-equipped meeting room includes:

It’s your spot to network and refuel your energy and creativity. The new makeover is a big hit with our tenants, who simply love the pops of colour, geometric artistic elements, and, of course, comfortable seating.
