A growing London office bureau has revealed the rapidly changing demands of its clients in the capital – to ensure their employees are happy in the workplace.
Cornerstone Office Search is helping businesses find facilities with gyms, shared workspace, dog-friendly and social spaces – a far cry from the simple demands of location, desks, and bathroom facilities of old.
Founded by Kevin Power and Evan Worrod in 2017, Cornerstone Office Search is breaking new ground in London’s flexible office space market.
Kevin said: “We’re finding that our clients are looking for far more than four walls and a room full of desks. They need facilities that appeal to prospective employees as well as looking after and retaining their current staff.
“Break-out spaces with soft furnishings, table football, table tennis and games rooms to give employees some time out, greenery around the building with roof terraces and some offering gym spaces with rooftop running tracks for employee’s wellbeing are just some of the facilities we’re now supplying to our customers.
“Every business is different, as are the needs of its employees, and that’s where our expertise comes in.
“We’re making sure we place our clients in the buildings that are the best fit for them and in the right location. An office is an extension of a company’s brand so it must express the right look and feel with just the right brand synergy between the two.”
The Bishopsgate firm is matching clients with offices all over London – from Victoria to Fitzrovia, Vauxhall to Soho. And demand has been so high, Cornerstone is looking to expand operations to other UK cities in the next 12 months.
Evan added: “We source exactly what’s needed for the individual company; it’s of no benefit to anyone if the client and their staff are unhappy by being in the wrong location so we pride ourselves in finding each client exactly what they are looking for.
“Our success depends entirely on their success, so we go out to find spaces that companies can thrive in. The better staff feel in their office, the more productive they are.”
