The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the world of office work, with many companies switching to either a fully remote or hybrid work model in the past year. Although remote working appears to benefit the employee, it also provides many advantages for the employer, particular from a cost-reduction perspective.

Leasing Costs

One of the most obvious cost-savings for businesses associated with remote working is reduced lease costs. For start-ups and early-stage companies, reducing lease costs can be a real game changer. For these smaller companies, the burden of signing a 5-year lease on an office space can be a big commitment, with the fear that your team might not grow at the speed that you anticipated. At NoCo, companies of all sizes benefit from our 30-day contract, no commitment model. Teams can gain access to over 20 spaces, all of which offer dedicated workspaces, secure WiFi, meeting rooms and utilities.

Reduced Overheads

Alongside the larger reduced lease costs, companies can benefit from smaller cost savings associated with leasing office spaces. Employees working from home or from a co-working space results in lower overhead costs such as lower utility bills, office supplies and cleaning services. Most co-working spaces include all costs in the monthly membership fee, ensuring you can project the exact costs per month.

Less Employee Turnover

From a recent survey by Whitaker Institute, 94% of over 5000 respondents would like to work remotely after the pandemic. With the tools and resources available for remote working, you can empower your team to work from a location close to their home, while building a company culture you can be proud of. Giving your team the opportunity to work remotely reduces their daily commute, allows them to work more flexibly and save money on out-of-pocket costs, such as work clothes and lunches. These benefits allow for a happier and more productive workforce, reducing employee turnover and saving the costs associated with recruiting, hiring and training new employees.
