Many of the serviced office providers who work across London have their own added extras to make their offices and them as providers stand out from the rest. There are a great number of up-to-the-minute perks available to serviced office occupants throughout London including everything from doughnuts being delivered to the office on Fridays to beer on tap. These guys certainly know how to treat their clients!
Complimentary Drinks and Friendly Dogs
WeWork kitchens are possibly some of the best supplied of all our office providers and offer a range of complimentary refreshments for clients and their guests. For example, they offer an infinite stream of micro-roasted coffee from their state of the art coffee machines keeping you alert within their creative and dynamic spaces. For those warmer days or for when you’re weaning yourself off the caffeine, they also provide complimentary fruit juices; in NYC these juices are linked to the charity water and WeWork donate $30 a month for every fruit water dispenser across their NY offices. The most unique thing about WeWork offices are their beer taps which are also installed in many of their kitchen spaces including Aldwych House, we just recommend you don’t visit these too many times in one day!
Many WeWork offices across London such as their Spitalfeilds and Old Street locations also allow tenants to bring their dogs in to the office with them. This unsurprisingly creates a very unique and laid back environment in which to spend your working day as well as encouraging friendly conversations from a mutual love of dog, brilliant for networking.
Buisness Environment Group
This is possibly our favourite perk here at Londonoffices from any of the providers (mainly because it involves food) but BE Offices has a tradition of having doughnuts delivered to the office on Fridays! We all know that Fridays are the best day of the week and that diets and healthy eating don’t matter on this special day and BE have definitely embraced the fun of Fridays; just when we thought the day couldn’t get any better!
A more unique service BE offer their staff and clients is that of a shoe shining service throughout their five City of London centres. Making a good first impression really counts in the world of business and we are all guilty of forgetting that meeting and wearing our old comfy and reliable shoes; a quick shine can work wonders and may end up saving the day.
Cycling to work is more popular than ever within London at the minute and many providers are working on making their spaces much friendlier to those who chose to ride in to the office. However, one particular provider has gone a cut above the rest offering a towel service. We don’t know that the idea didn’t spark from an office of sweaty cyclists who had forgotten their towels or a member of staff being caught short, realising their missing towel a little too late, but we think this perk is brilliant and a definite plus for i2, Bevis Marks clients.
Access all Areas
A great perk of taking space within a Regus building is that they have something called businessworld membership. There are three levels of membership for those who wish to take it, each tailored to the needs of the individual. Businessworld gold offers members unlimited drop-in access to any of Regus’ business lounges anywhere in the world. Platinum memberships allows access to any of Regus’ co-working spaces as well as use of any business lounges across their network and finally there is platinum plus which as well as the benefits of the previous two memberships, plus means that you can walk in to any business centre and be able to access your own private office! This is a great service for clients who have business all across the world or the UK meaning that there is no need to waste money on office space which will only ever be used intermittently.
The Office Group
Work It Fitness Studios
TOG are one provider that believe in the ethos ‘healthy body, healthy mind’ and think it is important that employees have the opportunity to be able to keep fit despite their busy work schedules. That’s where their new enterprise of not only including a gym within some of their centres but also holding a choice of fitness classes at these gyms, comes in to action. Some available classes are run by ex MMA Charlie Enstone-Watts and offer a personal approach to boxing. Other sessions include HIIT and yoga classes from ex-professional athletes and bespoke personal training can also be attained within TOG centres such as Henry Wood House and Albert House.
Healthy body is followed by a healthy mind within some of TOG’s offices as they are another provider who embraces the furry friend within their work spaces. Adorable fluffy faces can be found brightening up clients’ days within their centres all across London.
The Boutique Workplace Company
When working on big company projects, especially for those who have to commute quite a distance, there can be a lot of wasted time in terms of productivity when travelling to and from the office. It also may be necessary for you to work longer hours meaning that you literally just go home to sleep. It would be a whole lot easier and much less stressful if there was the option to get a restful night sleep right next to your office without having to pay hotel premiums. That’s why we love 128 Wigmore Street! Not only is this luxury office stunning in design, creating a very comfortable work space, it also has a deluxe onsite apartment with reduced rates for office tenants.
Whether you’re now imagining yourself tucking in to a beautiful sugar coated doughnut or sweating off the day just gone in a fierce work out class, these offices aren’t all work and no play and our Londonoffices team will be sure to find the perfect place to suit your inner desires. Call us on 020 7166 7981 to get started.
