I Doughnut Believe It: 5 Surprise Extras You Could Get With An Office


When it comes to choosing an office, it’s all about having a good location, some nice chairs and a few desks, right?

What if we told you that some office buildings come with benefits you may not have even thought of? Doughnut believe it? Well, then, here are 5 surprise extras you could get with an office.

5 Surprise Extras You Could Get With An Office

5 Surprise Extras You Could Get With An Office

1. Doughnuts & Cakes

In Sweden, there is a custom in which workers take regular breaks from work, relaxing and chatting over coffee, cakes and other light snacks. This custom, called fika, is common in most if not all Swedish offices.

This is why many offices now are starting to adopt a similar thing in the UK by offering doughnuts and cakes once a week. By providing a treat at the end of a working week, it reinforces the good work that you have been doing, letting you relax over the weekend.

2. Complimentary Gym

After a hard day’s slog at the office, there’s nothing better than having a good workout, releasing the tension in your muscles and allowing you to blow off some steam.

Many modern office buildings have an onsite gym and showers so that you don’t have to make your way across town after work. This will reduce your commute time drastically and allow you to leave the office building nice and refreshed every day.

3. Barista Style Coffee

Every year, Brits spend over £4 billion on coffee. Not just any coffee, either, but high-street barista coffee like Costa Coffee, Café Nero and Starbucks. Let’s be honest, we all love a good coffee break at work, and treating ourselves to a cappuccino to get our caffeine fix.

Some serviced offices can come with barista-style roasted bean coffee, allowing you to get that taste without having to walk far for it. Even better, this coffee can come complimentary, included with the price of your rent.

4. Fresh Fruit Every Day

Want something a bit healthier than cake and doughnuts but still need that sweet fix mid-afternoon? Well, that is exactly what you can get when your office provides fresh fruit every day free of charge.

It is recommended that we get at least five portions of fruit and veg every day. By doing so, you will increase your energy levels and lower your risk of heart disease, strokes and some cancers.

5. Special Events

If you work in a large corporate office, or you are an individual entrepreneur in a serviced office, you may not get to interact with people who work around you. Even if you do, it is unlikely that you know everyone who works in the building.

This is why offices can come with an extensive events programme allowing workers to interact, socialize and network. These events can also be educational, providing that training you might have been putting off doing.

Why choose having just one of these perks when you could get them all at the flexible workplaces in London from BE Offices? With these 5 surprise extras, you will not believe how moving into one of these offices will transform your working life.
