Congratulations! If you're reading this means you've stepped into the future... of workspaces or perhaps you are already here. As cliche as it sounds, there's some merit to that. According to a
 report by JLL, up to 30% of commercial real estate could be flexible by 2030! The demand for flexible office is also likely to pick up quickly as the startup and gig economy continue to flourish globally. Let's not forget about the fact that the big boys in the industry like IBM, UBS, and Facebook have joined the party. This is a telltale sign that demand from large companies is likely to pick up. For modern Small Medium Businesses (SME), a flexible workspace is a leaner alternative compared to a conventional setup. In comparison, flexible workspaces are far more flexible, affordable, and readily available. For large corporations, one appeal may lie in the hub and spoke model, meaning, their employees are able to work beyond the boundaries of their organization.

As today's technology has developed, and continues to develop, so have our workspaces. In tandem, we've experienced a shift from the traditional 9-5, 5-days-a-week method of working to a much more flexible routine. This means that we're witnessing more people working from home a couple days out of the week, setting up shop in a coworking space, or even working remotely from a beach in Bali.
