With the last budget this week, before Article 50 is triggered, businesses are looking at cost savings like never before. Since the last financial crisis one of the biggest cost savings has been the move towards more flexible office space solutions. However, there was a time when serviced offices lingered on the edge of the commercial property market. In the 1980s and early 1990s, flexible workspace was a pocket industry with a handful of operators and a smattering of serviced office centres.
There are certain hallmarks of a successful company you can't help but notice. For instance, you recognise their company branding. You know the founder's name. You hear good things about them in conversation. You might even catch yourself humming their advertising jingle.
"A meeting is an event where minutes are kept and hours are lost"
Do you agree or disagree with this sentiment? Judging by the barrage of published research relating to unproductive business meetings, unfortunately it seems most of the working population wholeheartedly agree.
2017 is here, and what better way to fire up the New Year than a stimulating meeting of the minds?
It's the perfect time to set up an inspirational meeting, get the team together and thrash out plans for the quarter. And given the seasonal tendency for 'January blues', the more stimulating and motivational your surroundings, the better.
Landmark Plc team members and clients joined forces to bake for Macmillan Cancer’s popular World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on September 30th. Each of the five Landmark locations hosted a coffee morning where clients and staff baked a variety of cakes from Victoria sponges to Gin and Tonic cupcakes.
The variety of cakes and biscuits was very tempting and clearly proved popular with everyone in each of the locations, raising over £1,484 for the charity.
Look around your workplace and answer this simple question: Where's your least favourite place?
We're willing to bet it's the meeting room.
You can have the world's most beautiful meeting room at your disposal (ahem, we think these meeting rooms are worthy contenders), yet you still can't wait to get out of there. Why? Because many meetings are long, drawn-out and painfully unproductive. Meeting agendas have an ugly habit of expanding merely to fill allocated time slots.
With locations in London's vibrant West End and the beating heart of the City, Landmark Plc’s serviced offices are in more demand than ever. Alan Todd, Head of Sales, rounds up the five premium rated business centres of 2016:
It’s that time of year again when a new year brings on a time of reflection and encourages people to revaluate their lives.
