The serviced office concept was established in the UK in 2005. Companies who rely on in-person collaboration refuse to let staff work from home 24/7. Hybrid working is the new norm which has increased the popularity of serviced offices. Each individual premise is furnished, fully equipped and managed by an operator.Staff must purchase a membership to access an office. The selected type of membership determines where and when staff have access to a serviced office and what areas within the office they can occupy.
