What is the biggest change or trend affecting your industry in 2023?
After several years of severe recession and instability, the collaborative or flexible workspace industry is in high demand and is expected to continue growing by 30% through 2023. Many of your clients and customers faced major challenges this year.
What are these problems and how can you help them?
Gone are the days when everyone worked in the office from Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Employers and employees are trying to figure out how to navigate the hybrid, remote, home and any workplace world.
Today we are often asked: "What are we doing in the office?" I hear the question
For some businesses, downsizing or closing an office may be the right choice. At Hub Coworking, many clients have made that choice, opting for rent-free offices with shared meeting space and equipment, resulting in cost savings.
Giving employees choices promotes employee retention and their overall happiness and well-being. Whether you're working 100% remotely, spending a few days in the office, offering shared subscriptions, or working 100% in the office, providing flexibility and choice is key.
What is the most exciting product or service you will offer your customers in 2023?
Although the concept of coworking has grown in popularity in recent years, Hub Coworking has been in the industry since 2014. The company is targeting locations on Oahu, Maui, Kauai and the Island of Hawaii, allowing members to choose their location not just where they live, but through a shared network across Hawaii.
We work on a range of exciting partnerships that help companies transform and innovate their workplace. We have learned a lot about how people work in our day-to-day business and we want to share this knowledge with others to help them find solutions.
One thing we've learned is that the rise of video calling has created a need for private, quiet spaces. That's why we're the only supplier of conference capsules and can help companies find solutions to audio problems.
