Last year, the market for flexible office space developed most dynamically in Central and Eastern Europe. According to the latest report of the global real estate consulting company CBRE, most such premises are located in London, where they account for almost 6% of the total number of offices. In continental Europe, this figure is slightly lower, at 2%. Poland led in the number of transactions in 2020.
"Even though the flexible way of working was not so preferred in Slovakia, we can expect that changes will occur in the future as well. Our experience with a pandemic can influence the future thinking of companies from different areas of business. However, we assume that such changes should primarily affect smaller companies, which need to either flexibly reduce or, conversely, increase the number of their employees seasonally, "said Oliver Galata, Director of Lease of CBRE Slovakia Office Space.
Most in Bratislava
The market for flexible workspaces in Slovakia began to develop in 2016. The largest providers of such workspaces are in the capital. The total area of Slovak coworking spaces is 35,200 square meters, not a single one is currently under reconstruction.
The average coworking space in Bratislava offers 185 jobs for rent. The largest such space is currently the Nivy Tower building. As many as 88% of providers of such premises are domestic companies.
