Central Working was started to address challenges that James Layfield, CEO, believes all new business owners are affected by; the first was the space.
Why sign leases for three, four, or even five years when you have no way of knowing how big or small your business will be in that time?
Wouldn’t you prefer a space with soul, and a place you can envisage yourself going to work everyday?
Somewhere you’ll be more likely to connect with the talent that you want to attract. The second was support. It’s really difficult to be an entrepreneur, running your own business. There will be difficult times or issues that you might not feel you can speak to your team about, these problems then get bottled up and cause you unnecessary stress.
That’s why Central Working offers incredible flexibility with no leases to worry about. We also give you a genuine support network; other people like you, running businesses, having problems, helping each other by sharing their experience and knowledge.
Lots of people talk about ‘community’ and ‘networking’, but they just mean something random that relies on serendipity, but at Central Working when we talk about reinvigorating community, we mean something much more reliable than that. You spend most of your time in your office, so we’ve created a workplace that gives you a real and supportive community. It isn’t random, and is made up of people that really want to look after you and care for you, making you want to come into work each day.
When you walk into a Central Working location, you can feel that these people care about you - not just our team, but the membership as a whole - it’s a real community, for you.
