“New Year, New Me”, how many times have you heard this phrase so far this year? While it can often be useful to set business resolutions at the start of the year, to really see their impact, the challenge is sticking to them throughout the year.

Research conducted by Statista shows that in 2019, 57% of those surveyed failed to stick to their resolutions for longer than a month, with 18% admitting breaking them after just a week.

For businesses, resolutions can be an effective way to set objectives for the year and work towards changing and growing areas of the business that you’ve been meaning to improve. However, with day-to-day business tasks taking priority, it can be difficult to keep track of New Year’s resolutions and progress them, and when broken, they can significantly impact your employees.

At Origin Workspace we see how busy members are which is why we’re here to help make your New Year’s resolutions stick beyond February. So, whether you wish to grow your professional network, retain talent or secure a new client, here are just a few ways we can help you tackle some of the most common business resolutions this year.

Improve employee experience

We understand that being a freelancer or part of a small team can often feel like you’re missing out on the company culture of a large office. At Origin Workspace, you and your teams will feel part of something much bigger. Connection and collaboration are at the heart of everything we do and with an extensive events programme including networking, fitness classes and weekly member perks, there’s something to suit everyone.

Grow your professional network

We believe anything can be achieved with the power of community. Our coworking space is home to businesses operating in a range of industries, from law to travel, meaning that there’s always plenty of opportunities to grow your network and meet fellow members.

Build a healthy workspace

Poor management of mental health in the workplace impacts both productivity and wellbeing and is one of the top drivers of the 72 million working days lost in the UK each year. Our facilities can help ensure your teams avoid burning out. Whether they opt for a lunchtime workout in our on-site gym or a quick coffee on our roof terrace, getting headspace away from the desk is crucial for mental wellbeing. We also have a trained mental health first-aider to help overcome the stress and anxiety if you’re managing a busy workload.

Expand your team

Origin Workspace provides businesses with a flexible workspace. Our members can access the building anytime between 5am and 11pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 6pm during weekends. This can often be a benefit when recruiting as it allows your staff to achieve a good work/life balance.

You also don’t need to worry about your team expanding as a membership at Origin Workspace provides you with flexibility. We’ll even work with you to create a layout that works for you.

Increase productivity

In addition to our community events programme and facilities, the building has also been designed to boost productivity and to help members get the most out of their working day. Our workspace is naturally ventilated and has natural light to help naturally boost productivity levels.
