We take care of the search as well as the rental and set-up of your employee's workplace within a co-working space.

Co-working spaces are a modern form of open-plan office. People from a wide variety of companies meet there. Whether employee, self-employed, freelancer or an entire department - the new form of working has numerous advantages for the most diverse requirements. Companies only rent individual workstations within the office, and the rent includes the associated infrastructure. Co-working spaces thus enable employees to work at their place of residence without actually having a branch office there. Current topics in working life such as sustainability, maximum flexibility and a good infrastructure are just some of the other advantages of co-working spaces. Where previously employees had to look for their own office space or pay for cost-intensive secondments, the co-working space is a great way to enable employees to work for the company further away from their home.

Keeping an eye on the essentials. And continue to work smoothly.
