It’s all about flexibility these days! Flexible leases, flexible workspace, flexible working, flexible repayment terms, and even yoga and pilates for flexible people!
This all-round agility is helping Britain’s small businesses thrive during these challenging economic and political times. Boxpod is witnessing the positive benefits of landlords and businesses working together and offers both parties quick, easy and cost-effective advertising and access to 1000s of commercial properties throughout the country.
Commercial landlords are realising the potential of flexible leases and businesses of all sizes are seeing the benefits. Pop-up shops and co-working are not passing fads, they are here to stay. It allows brands to test and trial new concepts. Some may argue the flexible revolution is fuelling innovation. All in all it’s providing a good working model for both landlords and tenants renting commercial property.
Flexible workspace isn’t just found in business centres these days – it’s across all uses. Large industrial units can be rented in sections and co-sharing in workshops is becoming popular. Pop ups in retail and leisure outlets and secure self storage and containers can be rented in a matter of minutes on short lets, as and when needed.
Multi use and multi purpose. Collaboration and community spirit. British stoicism and resilience also shine through – businesses and entrepreneurs weather the storm, adapt and manage (even in this unseasonably wet June).
