The pandemic accelerated a shift toward a decentralized way of working. As restrictions lift and employees return to the office, companies are increasingly looking toward flexible workspace solutions as a way to reduce their existing office space.
AfricaWorks Offices decentralization is the process of setting up satellite offices closer to where employees live. This strategy reduces the reliance on a single central headquarters, provides teams with accessible, flexible, and convenient places to work, and cuts down on employees’ commute times. A satellite office can range in size from a single desk for an individual employee to a workspace housing hundreds of workers.
A Flexible Co-working space like AfricaWorks offices is the best space to plant your team. An environment that is flexible and community-oriented.
From an employee perspective, a decentralized workspace model provides the flexibility to work from home but, at the same time, have access to a proper work environment that’s close to home. It also creates the opportunity to collaborate with peers who live nearby and have social interactions with other people.
From a business perspective, this can lead to fewer costs – instead of renting a huge office space in CBDs, office space costs can be distributed over several workspaces in less expensive areas. Providing employees with access to a proper workspace will also boost employee productivity and that’s critical for the business performance.
