FAQs: Flexible Workspace vs. Traditional Office Space

Posted by Gather on Jun 14, 2023 5:51:04 PM


One of the biggest expenses companies face every month is office space. Depending on the location, companies can spend thousands each month to accommodate their employees. Usually, these high costs arise from signing a lease for a traditional office space. However, as work trends shift towards hybrid and remote work, the advantages of flexible workspaces become increasingly valuable.


Flexible workspaces offer cost savings and flexibility for companies that prefer not to commit to a traditional office lease. In addition to being more cost-effective, flexible workspaces provide a wide range of workplace solutions compared to traditional office spaces. Whether you run a small business or a large enterprise, flexible workspaces offer the perfect amount of space you need at an affordable price.

How-to Guide: Determine How Much Office Space Your Team Truly Needs

Posted by Gather on May 1, 2023 1:59:36 PM

If you think through all the places you have worked, you will likely notice that they all have one thing in common: They are all very different. From company culture to physical location and in-office perks, there can be tremendous variability in working conditions, including the size and type of office space the business requires.

In our experience, we find that the following questions help to identify the type of workspace and size needed by new companies:


  • Do you plan to scale during the duration of your desired lease term? If so, what is your projected headcount?
  • How many, if any, of your staff members will need private offices?
  • Do your employees frequently hold meetings? What is the typical meeting size?
  • Will you need a full kitchen?
  • How much common space will you need for breaks, meals, or lounging?
  • Will you need any other types of spaces, such as reception areas, storage space, etc.?
