Frequently asked questions
Hot-desking and co-working spaces are desks or seats at a table, that can be booked as and when needed, providing a comfortable office environment but without the commute and without the commitment of leases or contracts to secure an office space.
With so many people no longer needing to go into London to work, working from home is so much more acceptable to companies however actually working from your home is not always ideal; living where you work, no space for a good office set-up, wifi isn’t fast enough for reliable video calls, too many distractions or maybe not enough.
You choose when and how long you want to use a hot-desk, if you have video or conference calls and there are lots of distractions at home, Your Office can provide peace to focus. Maybe you want a change of scenery a few days a week or somewhere to go to every day, to ‘go to work’ and not live where you work. If so book 4 week packages and be minutes from Your Office, no commute and a fraction of the train fare.
