Return to the office: tips for a Smooth Transition

Return to the office: tips for a Smooth Transition and Productive Comeback

After a rejuvenating summer break, the time has come to say goodbye to remote work setups and embrace the return to the office and hybrid working.

Whether you’re heading to our flexible office space in Chiswick Park or settling back into coworking space at White City, West London, transitioning back to the workplace may require some coordination.

The hybrid landscape has changed, find out more about how we think it will continue in 2023.

Return to the office in 2023

Recent data shows that while some companies are pushing for in-office mandates, the majority are embracing the concept of hybrid work policies.
The shift towards remote work has proven successful for many organisations, and we suspect this trend is likely to continue in 2023.

The advantages of a hybrid workplace policy are evident. Employees enjoy increased flexibility, better work-life balance, and the freedom to work from convenient locations.

Studies have shown that remote and hybrid work can boost overall well-being and increase productivity by up to 6%.

However, as we embrace this new way of working, challenges must be addressed. Collaboration and communication between remote and in-office employees are crucial for maintaining productivity and employee satisfaction.

Providing clear expectations and regular one-on-one sessions can foster a harmonious work environment.

The hybrid work approach also offers cost savings for companies. Reduced office space translates to lower overhead costs, a positive financial impact that Elon Musk and Twitter have experienced firsthand.

Coworking offers a solution as it is flexible, and a new way of working for many companies.

By continuously evaluating and adapting their policies, companies can navigate the challenges of the hybrid workplace successfully.

As we venture into this new era of work, embracing change and being open to innovation will be key to a thriving and productive workforce.

Return to the office Tips

Whether you’re working hybrid or you’re working from a coworking space/office, these are our tips to make a smooth transition and a productive comeback.

Organise Your Workspace

As you step back into the office, start by organising your workspace. Clear any clutter, sort out documents, and set up your essentials to create an environment that promotes productivity and concentration.

A clean and organised workspace sets the stage for a productive comeback.

Prioritise Tasks and Set Goals

Getting back into the flow of work can be overwhelming, so start by prioritising your tasks and setting achievable goals.

Create a to-do list and break down larger projects into smaller, manageable steps.

This approach will help you stay focused and motivated, especially if you’re co-working in West London, surrounded by other driven professionals.

Reconnect with Other Professionals

Take the opportunity to reconnect with other professionals and build a sense of bond.

Whether it’s catching up over a coffee in the office kitchen or collaborating in the shared spaces of our flexible office space, fostering strong relationships with other members of the workspace enhances collaboration and team spirit.

Manage Work-Life Balance

Returning to the office may require adjustments to your work-life balance. As you settle back into the routine, be mindful of maintaining a healthy balance between work commitments and personal well-being.

Take advantage of the amenities available in our co-working space, such as relaxation areas – Chiswick Park is the perfect spot to rewind and relax – or a personalised cup of coffee to fuel up for a productive day.

Returning to Coworking (Chiswick Park and White City)

As the summer season draws to a close, the return to the office presents an opportunity for a fresh start and renewed enthusiasm.

Whether you’re entering our flexible office space in Chiswick park or our co-working space in White City, West London, these tips will help you smoothly transition back to the workplace with a positive mindset.

Organise your workspace, reconnect with other members and manage your work-life balance to make the most of your workdays and achieve new levels of productivity and success.

Working from Home: The Pros and Cons Unveiled

Working from Home: The Pros and Cons Unveiled

Working from home has become more and more popular, mainly due to a worldwide pandemic where we were forced to #wfh. We bet you used that hashtag, even if it was just once. ;)
Of course, there are many perks that make remote work enticing, but we’ve seen that it also comes with challenges.

While it provides flexibility and convenience, after long periods, working from home can lead to isolation, distractions, and a lack of work-life balance.

Whatever team you’re on, let’s all dive into the world of remote work and how this changed over the years.

What are the disadvantages of working at home?

For some, working from the comfort of your own home may sound like a dream come true. And yes, we do get why!

No more commutes, or squeezing into the bus, train, or tube that is way too busy.

However, over the years while we were all staying at home because of the pandemic, different studies have been done.

working from home and work life balance

Research has uncovered some surprising disadvantages that can impact your productivity, mental well-being, and work-life balance.

As you might have noticed, working from home blurs the line between your professional and personal life.

Especially when having children, this can be extra challenging.

Research published in the Journal of Business and Psychology found that individuals who work remotely tend to experience greater difficulty in separating work-related tasks from their personal responsibilities.

Have you ever worked from home, but also did the laundry, cleaned a bit, and tried to do groceries during your break?

With working from home, you can feel a constant presence of having to do the work. When you’re off it can prevent you from fully enjoying your non-working hours.

The Isolation Blues

While working from home provides solitude, it can also lead to feelings of isolation.

A study conducted by the Harvard Business Review revealed that remote workers often experience a lack of social interaction and reduced sense of belonging.

Human beings are social creatures, and the absence of face-to-face contact with colleagues can take a toll on mental well-being.

Loneliness and decreased motivation are potential consequences of working from home.

Coworking spaces, like Venture X in West London, provide a solution by offering a communal environment where you can interact with like-minded professionals. Whether you want to work hybrid, or from the office, choose whatever feels good for you.

Distractions Galore

As we all know – home is filled with distractions, and they can be incredibly tempting when you’re trying to stay focused on your work.

Whether it’s scrolling through social media, household chores, or family members vying for your attention, these distractions can impact your productivity.

Oh, and don’t forget about the fridge… a place most of us visit more often when working from home.

wfh working from home

The benefits of working from home

Of course, it’s not all distractions and stress. Working from home can be beneficial for many people.

It depends on what suits you and your lifestyle. Many people even choose to work hybrid, so a few days from home and a few from the office.

Embracing Flexibility

One of the biggest advantages of working from home is the flexibility it offers.

Often, remote work allows you to choose your working hours. Which makes it flexible.

Without the commute to work, you’ll have more spare time to pursue your personal commitments, hobbies and other interests.

Commute-Free Bliss

Let’s talk a bit more about the commute-free bliss, say farewell to rush hour traffic and crowded public transportation!

Working from home takes the daily commute away, saving you time.

Commuting can also increase your stress levels, especially when it’s crowded in public transport or you’re stuck in a traffic jam.

You must have seen people commuting to work, that, well, didn’t have a big smile on their faces, to say the least.

Working from home can give you a relaxed start of the day, while reducing your stress levels.

Cost Savings

Working from home can lead to substantial cost savings. Without a daily commute, you save on transportation expenses, fuel costs and parking fees.

Plus, working from home saves you money on professional clothing for work and expensive lunches around the office.

Conclusion: Working From Home Pros and Cons

Working from home offers flexibility and freedom, allowing you to create a personalised work schedule and achieve a better work-life balance.

However, it’s not without its challenges. Remote work can blur the boundaries between work and personal life.Isolation and reduced social interaction can also affect mental well-being and motivation.

If you’re looking to break free from the challenges of working from home and experience the best of both worlds, Venture X has flexible coworking spaces in West London.

With a supportive and vibrant community, state-of-the-art amenities, and flexible membership options, Venture X provides an ideal environment for professionals seeking a productive and collaborative workspace.

Hotdesk vs. Dedicated Desk in a Co-working Space | Venture X

Hotdesk vs. Dedicated Desk in a Coworking Space | Venture X

Regular office spaces are so 2015… don’t you agree? ;) Coworking spaces offer a new way of working and have become increasingly popular among freelancers, entrepreneurs, and startups over the years. With a range of options available, it can be difficult to decide whether to opt for a hotdesk vs. a dedicated desk in a coworking space. In this article, we will explore the differences, benefits, and disadvantages of each option, helping you to make a decision that matches your preferences and business goals.

Hotdesk in a Coworking Space

Have you heard of a hotdesk but are you not entirely sure what it means? Well: a hotdesk is a flexible workspace option, which is ideal for people who don’t require a permanent workspace.

Hotdesk users can sit at any available desk within the coworking space. This option is great for those who require a change of scenery. With two locations in West London, Venture X even offers coworking spaces at different locations. One day in Chiswick Park and the other day in White City (Westfield)? No problem at all!

Benefits of a hotdesk in a coworking space

Whatever the options are you are looking at, there are always pros and cons. Hotdesks in co-working spaces offer a lot of benefits, but as anything, there are some disadvantages as well.

So in our opinion, these are a few benefits of having a hotdesk in a coworking space.

Benefits of hotdesks

Flexibility: one of the main benefits of a hotdesk in a coworking space is flexibility. Hotdesk users can come and go as they please. The contracts are more flexible than regular office spaces, so this is ideal for those who have unpredictable schedules or only need a workspace occasionally.
Networking: hotdesks provide the opportunity to meet new people, which can be beneficial for networking and collaborating. Sitting with new people brings new opportunities, so it’s worth giving it a go.
Lower costs: quite an obvious one, but by renting a hotdesk you will save a lot of money, while still working in a buzzling work environment.

Disadvantages of a hotdesk

If you’re making a decision about choosing a hotdesk or a dedicated desk, it is good to look at the benefits, but also at the disadvantages. We found these are the main disadvantages of a hotdesk in a co-working space.
Lack of permanence. Hotdesk users may not have a consistent workspace and may have to spend time finding a free desk each time they visit.
Lack of personalisation. Unfortunately, hotdesk users cannot decorate or customise their workspace.
Easy distractions. If you’re someone that is easily distracted, a hotdesk might not be the perfect choice for you. With people making calls and chatting to one another it can be hard to concentrate.

Dedicated desk in a coworking space

A dedicated desk is a reserved workspace within a coworking space. It is not as flexible as a hotdesk, where you can just move around all day, everyday. A dedicated desk offers you a secure desk that is yours, whenever you enter the co-working space.

This option is ideal for those who require a consistent workspace and want to personalise their environment. Dedicated desks are also ideal for teams or individuals who require additional space for equipment or storage.

Benefits of a Dedicated Desk in Coworking Space

Consistent workspace. If you require a consistent workspace, and still want to use the perks of collaboration and connections, a dedicated desk could be a good option for you.
More Space. if you require a screen or other hardware/equipment, you can have that when you have a dedicated desk, and you can even bring some personal items to make it feel more customised.
It’s still flexible. When you have a dedicated desk, you’re still able to work from the communal spaces, so if you’d like to switch it up, just get your laptop and work from a different scenery.

Disadvantages of a Dedicated Desk in Coworking Space

Costs. Dedicated desks are more expensive than hotdesks, so if you’d like to save some costs while working, this is not the cheapest option out there.
Loss of structure. If you have more staff members in your organisation, it can be hard to work from dedicated desks. It takes more time to build a good, organisational structure.
Limited Growth. When you’re starting a business, you have a small team or you’re freelancing, a dedicated desk can offer you just what you need. However, there can come a time when you decide to hire more staff and grow your team. It then might be the case that you need to relocate to an office within the co-working space.

What is Right for Your Business? Hotdesk vs. Dedicated Desk

Deciding whether to opt for a hotdesk or dedicated desk in a co-working space depends on the needs of your business. If your business requires flexibility, a hotdesk can be a good option.

Hotdesk users have the freedom to come and go as they please, and connect with new people sitting in the hotdesk areas.

If your business requires a more consistent workspace, a dedicated desk may be the best option. It’s easy to bring your equipment and hardware to your desk, an area that can be personalised and made your own.

Ultimately, the decision between a hotdesk or a dedicated desk in co-working space depends on the needs of your business. Take the time to assess your requirements, and consider the benefits and disadvantages of each option before making a decision.

If you’re interested in having a hotdesk or dedicated desk in a coworking space in West-London, please contact us by emailing: hello@venturex.uk, via the WhatsApp feature on our website or call us directly on 0203 585 2900.

Virtual Office in London: Your Virtual Business Address at Venture X

Virtual Office in London: Your Virtual Business Address at Venture X

Having a business address in London, without paying an enormous amount of rent sounds like a dream, right? A Virtual Office in London is a cost-efficient and effective option when you, or your team, is working remotely or when you want to be registered in the British capital.

There are plenty of reasons to love London – the history, the culture and don’t forget, the food. London is a great hub of all sorts of businesses. It is a place where many businesses want to be established.

With (renting) prices going up in the capital, you can easily pay thousands of pounds to have an office in London. A virtual office can be a great outcome, as it gives you many additional benefits and it is just a fraction of the price you are paying when renting an office space.

What is a virtual office?

Not having an actual office, but having a registered office might come across as a little unclear. That is why we are explaining a bit more about what it includes in this article.

A virtual office is an office that exists in cyberspace. It is usually used by businesses or individuals who work from home, online, or from remote locations. As we have seen a huge increase in working from home since the pandemic, there is more interest in virtual offices.

A virtual office can be a great way to make your business appear more professional and established, without the need for a physical office space.

At Venture X UK we offer virtual offices, which include:

· Access to a prestigious business address in London
· Mail forwarding and parcel handling services
· Telephone redirection and answering services
· Meeting room access and access to other on-demand amenities
· Access to our events program and Member Community

The benefits of having a virtual office in London

More and more companies are deciding to work remotely and there has been an uprising in digital nomads, traveling the world while working in coffee shops and hotels.

Times have changed, which means businesses change too. A traditional office set up is not gone either, it is just that we are seeing more and more flexible options and solutions.

As a business owner, it is important to build a trustworthy brand. A virtual office in London can provide your business a prestigious address in one of the world’s most iconic cities.

These are some of the benefits to having a virtual office in London:

Prestige: Having a virtual office in London instantly gives your business a boost in prestige and credibility. Venture X is located in beautiful locations in West London – Chiswick and White City.

Not that we are bragging about how great these locations are (ok.. maybe a little bit), but we are sure potential clients and partners will be impressed by your Venture X London address. With a virtual address in London you are part of the global business hub.

Flexibility: With a virtual office, you’re not tied down to a single location. You can work from anywhere in the world, as long as you have an internet connection. This is ideal for businesses that need to be agile and responsive to change.

Cost-effective: Traditional office space in London is known to be expensive. A virtual office can save you money on rent, utilities, and other overhead costs. You won’t need to maintain a physical office space,so you can invest those savings back into your business.

Can I use a virtual address for HMRC?

If you’re thinking about using a virtual office as your registered office for your company, you may be wondering if it’s possible to do so with HMRC. Fortunately, the answer is yes, it is possible to use a virtual address for HMRC correspondence.

There are a few things to keep in mind if you’re going to use a virtual address for HMRC correspondence. First, you’ll need to make sure that your virtual office is able to receive mail on your behalf. Second, you’ll need to provide HMRC with the correct address for your virtual office. And third, you may need to provide HMRC with additional information about your company’s registered office if they request it. You’ll also need to provide us with as much information as we require to run appropriate background checks on you and your business.

Overall, using a virtual office as your registered office for your company is a perfectly acceptable option with HMRC. Just be sure to keep the above things in mind and you’ll be all set!

If you’re interested in having a virtual office in London, please contact us by emailing: hello@venturex.uk, via the WhatsApp feature on our website or call us directly on 0203 585 2900.

Flexible workspaces offer plenty of room to grow, either as a short-term solution until larger offices are available, or a long-term solution. As you’re growing as a company, it is a benefit to have flexible workspaces so you’re not committed to a certain size of office. It allows you to have the ability to reconfigure the office with ease as your company grows.

No long-term obligations

A huge benefit is that flex spaces are, as the name says, flexible. This means you are not tied to a contract for the next 5 to 10 years. Especially in these uncertain times, it is important to have that flexibility. We believe this makes entrepreneurship more pleasant as you can adapt your environment to the wishes of your company.

Fixed Rates

Let’s say you are a start-up looking for a flexible office space in West London. It can be very expensive to find an office, as you have to purchase most amenities and furniture yourself. Oh, and don’t forget about the cleaning costs and everything else you have to think about when moving in.

Finding an office space that meets all your needs can be stressful, but also very expensive. A co-working space that has everything on site makes your life easier, but is also cost-efficient in the long term as you pay a fixed rate.

So there you go, our view on the benefits of working from a flexible workspace. We hope you enjoyed this article.

Wellness Tips for Mental Health at Work | Mini Guide by Venture X

Wellness Tips for Mental Health at Work | Mini Guide by Venture X

 

The first few months of the year can be a bit cold and lonely. After the crazy busy December month, it is good to recharge. Whether that’s at home or at work, there are plenty of Wellness Tips you can apply for your mental health. Our mini guide will give you a summary of tips and tricks.

Working on your Mental Health at Work

Work is where you spend most of your time. So it makes sense to improve your mental health in the workspace. Whether you’re working from home or in the office, making time for yourself with these wellness tips is always a good idea.

To practise wellness at work, it’s important to prioritise self-care activities. We believe prioritising yourself is the key for mental health. We tend to not put ourselves first and that can make life a bit overwhelming sometimes. So ask yourself, when was the last time you thought about your mental health?

It is all about making lifestyle choices that suit you. This can include taking breaks throughout the day to stretch, move, or meditate, and eating nutritious meals.

Setting boundaries and practising self-care is key. Make yourself a priority and you’ll notice your work performance goes up too.

Don’t forget about your physical health though. Physical health is just as important as mental health, and it’s crucial to take care of both in and outside the workplace.

Tips for Mental Health and Wellness at Work

Mini Wellness Guide

Our Mini Guide for integrating wellness at work and increasing your well-being.

1. Practice Self-Care

Self-care is an essential aspect of maintaining good mental health. It involves taking the time to do things that bring you joy, reduce stress, and recharge your batteries. Some simple self-care activities include reading a book, taking a walk or meditating. Even if it’s just for a few minutes each day.

2. Establish Boundaries

Mental health at work starts with establishing clear boundaries between your work and personal life. This includes not checking your work email outside of work hours (we know it’s hard!) and not answering work calls or messages when you’re off. By setting these boundaries, you can avoid work-related stress from spilling into your personal life. Balance is key, as they say.

3. Connect with Others

Even though many of us enjoy working from home, human connection is important for your mental health. This could mean connecting with colleagues, friends, and family, whether it’s through lunch breaks, after-work activities, or events. Building strong relationships with others can help you feel supported and reduce stress.

4. Exercise Regularly

Exercise has been shown to have a positive impact on mental health. It can reduce stress, improve your mood, and increase energy levels. So why not hit that gym during lunch time, or even before or after work? We know, that’s easier said than done. So maybe just start with incorporating physical activity into your workday by taking a walk during your lunch break or doing stretching exercises at your desk.

5. Practice Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a powerful tool for reducing stress and improving mental wellness. It involves paying attention to the present moment, and can be practised through meditation, breathing exercises, or simply focusing on your thoughts and feelings. It sounds so simple, but it really does improve your overall well-being.

Plus, taking a moment to practice this can easily be integrated into your day, as you can do it while commuting or sitting behind your desk.

6. Take Regular Breaks

Taking regular breaks throughout the day can help reduce stress and improve productivity. Try to take a short walk, grab a snack, or simply stretch your legs every hour or two to help you recharge. Some people even set an alarm, just so they won’t forget to have a break.

Mental Health and Prioritising yourself

Hopefully these wellness tips will help you to take care of your mental health at work. Incorporating these simple tips into your daily routine can take a little bit of time and to be honest, sometimes we just forget (because we are human). However, by setting an alarm or putting something in the calendar, it’s easier to remind yourself.

Just remember to prioritise yourself. That doesn’t mean being selfish, it does mean you’re willing to show up at work with your best foot forward, feeling more relaxed and less drained.

Are you experiencing intense feelings of sadness at work?…

If you’re feeling overwhelmed or struggling with your mental health, don’t hesitate to seek professional help. Depression or a burnout can influence your well-being a lot.

If you are or know anyone who is dealing with depression, we recommend reaching out for support, please find out more information here.
