The co-workspace solutions provider Workshop17 is expanding its footprint of five central business district and suburban facilities by adding a sixth offering at The Bank in Rosebank, Johannesburg. According to Workshop17 CEO Paul Keursten, the prolonged impact of Covid-19 has entrepreneurs and corporates looking for new ways of working and alternative spaces with flexible and affordable leases.
The office of the future is no longer a specific area in one building but a combination of physical spaces and virtual office resources for meetings, planning and collaboration. “Considering feedback from our customers, The Bank will have less hot desking than our other sites and more dedicated offices of various sizes that are suited for use full time by corporates or SMMEs, or for remote workers who need a convenient space for group status check-ins and brainstorming,” says Keursten.
“Our cafe and meeting rooms will provide all the functionalities for on-site and online meetings in a welcoming environment. Our spaces are also designed to host business events and private functions.” Workshop17 members will get preferential rates at InterContinental Hotels‘ boutique hotel Voco, whereas hotel guests in turn will enjoy the benefits of Workshop17, including flexible use of offices and boardrooms, and fast Wi-Fi. Keursten says the combination of Workshop17, Voco and a new restaurant, Proud Mary, creates a multifunctional offering and an integrated member experience.
