Dedicated Desks

What is a dedicated desk?

A dedicated desk is a permanent workspace that is guaranteed to be as it was when you left it the day before. Unlike hot desking, you won’t need to find a new place to work every day which may be necessary for your business if you carry too much around. Sometimes a secure place where you can be confident in leaving your belongings is necessary for peace of mind in your business. You’ll have a desk, an office chair and a secure, lockable storage drawer.

Why a dedicated desk?

A coworking space has some incredible benefits. With a dedicated desk, you’ll have the access to a permanent workspace which you can personalize and store belongings in. In addition, you’ll also be in the thick of a thriving collaborative environment. You’ll be just feet away from several other small business owners who might be exactly the help you need to grow your business while you help to grow theirs. It’s like having a large, open plan office with endless collaboration opportunities.

Is a dedicated desk right for me?

If you’re in the beginning stages of starting your business, why not save money on an office you don’t require yet then work your way up to an office once your business grows to fit into one. The coworking space may actually provide more value than a traditional office space alone and out of the way, out of touch from anyone else. Otherwise, if you have an established business but most of your work doesn’t require an office space, save the cash!

Lastly, if you have a business with employees and you find a large enough office costs far too much including the amenities you require, grab a dedicated desk for yourself and each of your employees instead. With a dedicated desk, you’ll have access to all the extras like parking, Wi-Fi and amenities plus the ability to work from anywhere in the centre if your desk isn’t what you need on any particular day. The elasticity is exactly what any business needs.

Ven Creative

In just 6 months, Steve and Andy from Ven Creative upgraded from part-time Hot Deskers, to full-time Dedicated Deskers and now have upgraded to their own private office in Waterman Chadstone. Working from home for 2 years meant it was hard for them to meet clients, collaborate with other businesses and find people to call friends. Now they believe that being a part of a Waterman centre has changed not only their business but their personal life for the better.
