The Argyll Club has launched Hub & Flex, its new hybrid working product, in response to businesses that may require greater office flexibility post-lockdown. Reacting to pandemic-induced changes to the way we work, Hub & Flex allows businesses to lease a private office ‘hub’ for their core team and receive an additional complimentary hot-desking ‘flex’ solution for every two contracted desks in one cost-effective package. For example, a business of six can lease a four-person office but with the ability for all six team members to work in the building simultaneously using hot desk facilities, business lounges and coworking spaces. Team members can also utilise any of The Argyll Club’s premium locations across Central London.
The product has been designed in response to increased demand for hybrid working, as professionals split their week between home and office and employers require fewer full-time desks. Fundamentally, the new product offers businesses – particularly SMEs – ultimate agility: the chance to have a reduced core office whilst also ensuring the entire team retains constant access to prime central London workspaces without the need to provide everyone with a permanent desk. The product will be offered to all new clients, with additional options – such as private meeting rooms, dedicated desks and day offices – also available.
Commenting on the announcement, Emily Smith, Chief Operating Officer of The Argyll Club, said: “We have always been committed to supporting our clients’ organic growth, enabling them to easily scale their offices up or down as their team evolves. Now, to support businesses through the next chapter of the pandemic, we are going one step further and giving our clients the option to be even more nimble. We know that greater flexibility in leases and working models will be critical in businesses’ post-pandemic recovery strategies, but we also believe that a hub in central London will play an equally important role. As such, our new product marries the two, ensuring businesses have both agility and home at one of the capital’s best addresses.”
