Is your Business Continuity Plan (BCP) in place to transition to the post Covid-19 workplace?
While Business Continuity Planning (BCP) and solutions are at the forefront of many peoples’ minds at the moment, some may need a refresher on what BCP is exactly, and how it impacts them and their team.
BCP is basically your plan B – a process of safeguarding aimed at mitigating threats to your business. BCP includes creating systems of prevention and recovery to help you navigate uncertain and high-risk times. These plans are typically aimed at protecting your team and assets either in advance or as a reaction to an unfolding situation. Whether it’s determining how to ensure your operations can move forward, or how your team can remain functional – BCP is something everyone is now applying to their working conditions as a way to remain safe, protected and operational.
So what does this mean for businesses and their office space? For many, it means split team arrangements – dividing their team’s location so that they are not all exposed to the same environment or risk. As we all start to look forward post-Covid, many are now thinking about how they can implement BCP as a part of our global recovery phase.
As the world’s embarked on a (forced) shared remote working experience, many aren’t having that work from home dream they thought they’d experience.
Bloomberg reports that work-life balance has taken a nose-dive and employees are doing 3 hours more work than prior to work from home arrangements.
In a world where work and play are starting to meld together, and loneliness is starting to kick in – many employees can’t wait to return to the office.
This is the perfect opportunity to plan for a new workspace that checks off your organization’s needs and helps boost employee confidence, productivity and morale.
To help businesses through these times, The Working Capitol is currently offering 2 months free* as a part of our BCP offers for businesses looking forward to returning to an external workspace.
Beyond just a good deal, here are some reasons why co-working makes the perfect option for teams of all sizes.
● Private office solutions
With private Workspaces, teams have a dedicated and safe space to call their own. The Working Capitol accommodates teams from 2-25 people, these flexible workspaces are customisable and can be tailored to match organisations’ BCP social distancing considerations.
● Convenient and Safe Fringe CBD location
Many companies are now forced to think about safety as they ponder a return to the workforce. With commutes and shared building infrastructure emerging as a real threat. The Working Capitol boasts a unique locale – situated away from the hustle and bustle of the CBD but still connected to hubs like Tanjong Pagar and Outram Park.
● Small Footprint Buildings and A Close-Knit Community
With smaller footprint heritage buildings, the boutique shophouse experience is quickly becoming a desired alternative to Grade A large footprint buildings. With human density and foot traffic lower than as compared to high rise CBD buildings, shophouses provide generous space allocation per person (The Working Capitol offers almost 1.5x our competitors’) which is winning factor for companies considering BCP solutions to ensure their team’s safety.
Being situated within a close-knit community like ours also means that members are familiar with each other and are more mindful of how their actions play a part in keeping our entire campus and community safe and healthy. Trust is our biggest commodity these days, so a curated member base is an important factor in determining a safe environment for teams.
● Flexible contract terms, and all in one billing
While we all remain hopeful that things will start returning back to normal quickly, we understand the need to be cautious with spending and investing into capex.
The Working Capitol’s short-term leases free companies from long-term commitments. Unlike traditional landlords and office spaces, our flexible contract terms start from as short as 6 months. Additionally, utilities are included so you don’t have to worry about allocating budget or locking yourself into more contracts or hefty deposits.
● Low Capex and plug and play infrastructure
Our spaces are fully equipped and can be ready for move-in within 24 hours or less. With our on-site meeting and breakout rooms, printing facilities and pantry, you can provide your team with auxiliary office amenities without having to sacrifice your office’s floor space or allocate resources to managing it.
