METRO x GENERATOR: A Working Solution

METRO x GENERATOR: A Working Solution

Jul 7, 2021 Business

There comes a point in every businesses life where it needs to take a good look in the self-facing camera on a zoom call and feel a bit concerned about how everything is going. When you find yourself in this position, it’s likely that a change of scenery will help a great deal and that the spaces at Generator will not only give you (and everyone else) something more appealing to look at in the background of your endless videoconferencing; they will also open a new world of new contacts, opportunities and resources to you and your staff. You won’t be the first person to make this shift – you’d be joining Facebook, Google, Pfizer and many, many more in Generator’s beautiful, considered business spaces. Generator knows exactly what they’re doing — and exactly what you need. Currently New Zealand’s leading flexible-space operator, Generator has been in operation for 10 years (having been acquired by Precinct Properties four years ago) and was a pioneer of co-working, starting with just one site in Britomart but expanding to four, with more to come, including down in Wellington. It’s home to a membership base of over 200 businesses and their 1200 employees who understand that traditional office spaces don’t quite deliver what co-working spaces can.

Being with Generator means receiving access to their cutting edge spaces, all of which come with individual unique benefits. Britomart Place, for example, looks out over sweeping harbour views; 12 Madden St in the Wynyard Quarter is lush plants and contemporary, elegant workspaces. Imagine a professional, properly designed environment that will impress clients, with meeting rooms, IT infrastructure, kitchens stocked with coffee and bar spaces for socialising… that you don’t have to clean. Plus, there’s a concierge around to meet and greet guests, organise coffee, or whatever you may need to help you focus on your business. Cool office, little admin — win, win.

It’s obviously easier to attract and energise staff when they’re able to come to work somewhere convenient and vibrant, but these co-working spaces come with the added bonus of offering plenty of opportunities for networking with peers and entrepreneurs in similar phases of their business life-cycles. Generator encourages mingling with fellow tenants through fun events, activations and open, shared spaces and exposes them to new innovators, ideas and potential inspiration. (This also means your employees will have people to talk to other than just you.)

You can take advantage of all the options Generator makes available, tailored for the kind of workspace you’re needing at any point in your business’s timeline: hot desking, resident desks, dedicated offices, or managed suites. Flexibility is the key word here, really, perfect for SMEs who are looking to lower their risk; there are short-term leases for the slightly unsure or generally commitment-phobic with no OPEX or CAPEX.

Which is all to say, Generator has been specifically designed to power up smart Kiwi business by allowing companies to not waste time fretting about their immediate environs, freeing up time to concentrate instead on doing what it is they’re supposed to be doing. Easy.
