Shared office space - 10 key benefits

Benefit #1:

Corporate facilities on a small budget

Just because you run a small business, or work in the regions, shouldn't mean you can't afford beautiful design. We have invested in things staff value like great meeting rooms, generous breakout areas like our cafe and lounge, and green spaces. Then we eliminated or automated expensive things like reception and concierge.

This enables us to charge just $11.00 per i-desk in our  coworking area or in your own private office. 

Benefit #2

Occupancy costs 50% less than leasing

Your dedicated i-space comes with full use of over 512 sqm of shared facilities for you and your staff to enjoy. This is THE major benefit of co-working spaces, and delivers you an unbeatable sqm occupancy cost, when compared with leasing your own office.

Benefit #3

Your office is always the right size

Why pay for space now that you don't need?

With monthly licences and no long-term leases, or personal guarantees, you simply pay as you grow. With options from 1 to 16 persons plus, and with secure adjoining doors between offices, we've got the right size space for your business, when you are ready. 

And it's your dedicated space, 24x7 whether it be a single  coworking desk or the largest serviced office. Click the link below and have a virtual tour of a typical serviced office.

Benefit #4

Attract and retain great staff

People simply work better, when they love their work environment. Work can be stressful so we have taken important amenities to the next level - like spa quality bathrooms and showers with lockers, to integrate exercise into your day. 

We are sure you will love it and your staff will too.

Benefit #5

Grow your network

Join Hastings HIVE and make an instant network. Think shared lunches and social occasions. In just a short time, the HIVE has developed a vibrant and welcoming community, ready for you and your staff to contribute your energy and enthusiasm.

Benefit #6

Feel free to run your business

Our management team, fronted by our wonderful Community Manager Kaylea, handles all the contextual stuff around managing an office; like IT & networking, printing, health & safety, supplies, cleaning, bins, re-cycling, parking and building maintenance and making sure the coffee machine is de-scaled! This leaves you free to run a business, not an office.

Benefit #7

Location, location, location.

Hastings HIVE is right in the CBD Hastings, the commercial centre of the Hawke's Bay. Market Street is where most of the banks and financial services companies are found and Queen Street is where the region's professional services businesses are; the engineers, accountants, lawyers, surveyors and more.

Handy for customers, visitors, staff and transport links, plus Hastings trending hospitality trade.

Benefit #8

Staff productivity

To get you connected, we provide corporate level tools like dual broadband fibres, dual internet providers with shortest path routing, dual HP Aruba firewalls and super-secure Gigabit Wifi through the building. All this with 24x7 network management. Our board rooms and meeting rooms have the latest flat screen displays with amazing quality Zoom and Teams compatible video equipment from Logitech.

Then being a business incubator, we have "your back", with IT support for your applications and devices, at an amazing "charities" support rate from Glenn Cook Technologies.

Benefit #9

Your assets safe and sound

CCTV covers from footpath and car park to doors and the cafe, all monitored by the Aotea Security control room. And with each entrance and office door electronically operated by key fob or mobile app, we know who's in the building and who shouldn't be there, 24 x 7 x 365.

Staff working late? OK, we know they're still there. Your supplier says they dropped off three large computer boxes at 07:45?  Here's what the courier actually delivered (photo deliberately shaded). 

Benefit #10

Two flat whites

At Hastings HIVE our shared value #1 is value for everyone. And nothing delivers more value than our hard working professional espresso coffee machine. In the morning rush it serves up to two coffees every thirty seconds, with seven delicious barista espresso coffee roasts to choose from. 

And as your office pricing plan is based on the cost of  "two flat whites" per i-desk ($11.00 per day), if your team drink those two coffees in the HIVE  (rather than the high street)....

your office is effectively free!
