List of shared workspaces in Hawke's Bay

Our list of shared workspaces and serviced offices, details what each shared space has to offer. Updated quarterly along with commentary on changes affecting the coworking industry here and overseas, we hope this list helps readers find a suitable workspace that best suits their needs.

Spring is in the air and the election creeping closer, something which historically acts as a dampener with businesses and tenants waiting to see what the winds of change may bring.

JLL NZ have just released their 2023 office sentiment survey. This covers broad aspects of office occupancy needs and expectations. What stands out to your editor is that hybrid / remote working is here to stay. From around 200 office workers responding, 82% confirmed that some flexible remote working arrangements remain in their workplace since the covid restrictions.

Over 100 organisations occupying offices agreed, with 84% of them saying they offered some kind of hybrid working, and only 14% responding that they required their workers full-time in the office. Interestingly, 55% of organisations reported less than 80% utilisation of their existing office space which reflects this remote working trend.

Asked to prioritise available flexible working arrangements, over 50% of staff selected the ability to work between 2-4 days a week remotely. Next most popular was better collaboration spaces in the workplace with technology enabled meeting places, huddle zones and hot-desking.

Equal third and fourth popular, was the ability to full-time remote work and cowork with other organisations in shared workspaces.

Small serviced office space in Hastings HIVE
This small private serviced office in the HIVE could be shared by 12 staff hot-desking

This is good news for the coworking movement, with many corporate styled shared workspaces well placed to support such demands. At Hastings HIVE we have been steadily adding more and more advanced collaboration spaces, as well as introducing a "flexi-worker" pricing model, allowing customers to maximise their serviced office space by having staff hot-desk.

Such hybrid working is greatly appreciated by staff AND your accountant...!


The following list attempts to clearly identify what's on offer, however readers should confirm details with the provider directly to validate this information, before choosing a space.
