Flexibility and Convenience: The Key Benefits of Melbourne’s Serviced Offices in CoWorking Environments

by | Oct 17, 2023 | News

A serviced office, often referred to as an executive office, managed office, or business center, offers a fully furnished and well-equipped workspace available on a pay-as-you-go basis.

These offices are typically situated within buildings managed by coworking operators, who rent out individual serviced offices or entire floors to clients, granting businesses access to private, ready-to-use office spaces on flexible terms.

An increasing number of businesses are turning to these hybrid coworking models as they have consistently proven to be the more logical, cost-effective, and convenient choice.

Business owners opt for serviced offices for a variety of reasons, including the flexibility they offer. Perhaps you are part of a growing company that isn’t ready to commit to a multi-year lease. You might want to avoid the hassle and expense of purchasing your own equipment and handling unexpected maintenance issues. Alternatively, you might simply want to be part of a larger professional community. In such cases, a serviced office presents a convenient and flexible office space solution.


Considering making the move yourself? Here are some key benefits to consider:

Flexible Short-Term Leases:

 With an office membership option, bid farewell to complex contracts and embrace flexible lease terms that allow you to rent your private office on your own terms. This allows you to concentrate on what truly matters – growing your business – without worrying about rental commitments that might impede your growth.

Cost-Effective Solution:

Saving on unnecessary expenses is crucial for any business, especially if you’re just starting out. Traditional office options tend to accumulate high overheads, as you’re responsible for fit-outs, bills, setups, and other extras, such as a full-time receptionist.

Research indicates that renting an office in a coworking space can save your business up to $2,700 per month, with large corporations reducing costs by up to 25% when making the switch – a substantial saving! With a serviced office, you only pay for what you use and need.

This means, your office membership covers energy bills, fully furnished office setups, cleaning services, receptionists, mailing services, high-speed internet, and more. Additionally, you can enjoy extra perks like on-site cafes, printing services, and parking.

Unlike traditional office arrangements, you also gain access to a diverse directory of businesses spanning across various industries.

Access to Your Own Private Space:

With a private office membership in a coworking space, you can move in right away, as all offices come furnished with ergonomic desks and chairs. Coworking spaces also grant you the freedom to customize your office to your liking. Given the range of office options in a coworking space, you can choose between a window office with natural light or an internal pod. At CoWork Me, we offer 90 spacious private offices on-site, many of which enjoy natural sunlight. Lockers are also included should you need a secure place for valuable items.

 Access to Meeting Rooms and Event Spaces:

Another valuable aspect of your serviced office membership is the access to meeting rooms and event spaces. If you need to hold confidential calls or meetings, booking ahead is all it takes. At CoWork Me, our fully equipped meeting rooms feature AV facilities, whiteboards, and stylish interiors to impress your guests. Private office members receive monthly meeting room credits.

Making Connections and Amplifying Your Business:

As a business owner, networking is essential for acquiring new clients and raising awareness about your business among like-minded individuals. Coworking spaces provide ideal settings for meeting these people. They are designed to foster collaboration and social interaction, allowing individuals with similar interests and goals to connect.

At CoWork Me, we have over 200 active businesses registered with us, including Hello Fresh, Vodafone, and Matchworks. We ensure regular networking and social events, allowing businesses to connect and network professionally. Members are encouraged to host informative workshops that not only benefit their businesses but also the coworking community. Topics include Business Negotiation and NLP, Artificial Intelligence Tools, Social Media Marketing, and Business Leadership.

Community and Support:

Working independently or remotely can sometimes lead to feelings of isolation. Coworking spaces offer a supportive community where professionals can connect, socialize, and seek advice from like-minded peers. The shared experience and camaraderie within a coworking space create a supportive ecosystem that boosts morale, motivation, and overall well-being.

This demonstrates that coworking spaces are not merely a passing trend but a transformative force shaping the modern work landscape. So, whether you’re an independent professional or part of a growing business, consider the numerous benefits of coworking spaces and embrace this dynamic and evolving work culture.

We take pride in witnessing our members thrive.

At CoWork Me, our community feels like a family, and our team is dedicated to creating a space where everyone is respected, valued, and included. We continuously seek ways to bring members together, facilitate connections, and share knowledge, all through regular social events, workshops, or simple introductions.

Our approach is based on the idea that it’s not just about what you can get; it’s about what you can give back. From workplace design and services to our hospitality and events, we prioritize the user experience and constantly reimagine ways to create a better workspace. We aim to inspire businesses to grow, do their best, and feel a sense of belonging.
