Co-working scheme piloted in Bucks and Oxfordshire in workplace shake-up

Businesses of all sizes are changing the way they use their workplaces as the coronavirus pandemic continues to drive an employee-led revolution that challenges the monotony of 9-5 and a long commute in favour of a greater work-life balance.

To meet this growing demand, a Corporate Co-working Membership scheme is being piloted in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire that will give businesses the chance to offer employee collaboration at a convenient workspace close to home. It can also be used to escape unwanted interruptions or to help improve general wellbeing.

The flexible scheme is being launched by the UK’s leading operator of business & innovation centres, Oxford Innovation, at the Bucks Hubs in High Wycombe and Aylesbury along with the Grassroots centre in Oxford, and could be rolled-out nationwide later this year.

Caroline Downer, a Community Manager at the Bucks Hubs: “This is exciting news for the people of Aylesbury, High Wycombe and surrounding towns, who still want the flexibility of being able to work from home, but with the balance of accessible, high quality workspace close to home.  Thanks to our Corporate Co-working Scheme, they will now also be able to meet like-minded professionals or work alongside colleagues if they choose to work in the same place.”

According to a recent survey by the Office of National Statistics (ONS) less than 1 in 10 (6%) of working adults said they are going to continue to work all of their hours from home and an additional 23% of working adults said they plan to work some hours at a work location, and some hours at home.*
