Chris Barkley in our commercial property team writes about office space options for SMEs in a post pandemic world in the in the Chartered Institute of Public Relations’ members magazine, The Influence:

"Companies have had no option but to become fully operational outside of an office environment. While there are some obvious benefits to meeting with co-workers regularly, inevitably the high costs of city rents on long term office spaces has been brought sharply into focus. This is an issue for many business sectors, including PR, where most agencies are small/ medium size enterprises and where funds could perhaps be put to better use elsewhere."

Chris's article goes on to set out some potential solutions for SMEs wanting to revise their current occupational arrangements.
