How a New Way of Working Is Ushering in Short-Term Rental Offerings
Over the past few years, the offsite has been gaining traction among lean startups and large enterprises alike. The thinking behind it is simple: Whether brainstorming
a product launch strategy, planning out the quarter or year ahead or strengthening the bonds between teammates, getting out of the office and into a new physical context (hence offsite) can inspire new thinking and break down the barriers that keep workers from collaborating effectively.
Hotel meeting rooms are a common option, but they too come with caveats. There are often sizable minimum spends, mediocre-yet-mandatory catering, limited equipment for presentations and conference calls, and stuffy decor that does little to inspire creative thinking. It can be hard to think outside the box while you’re trapped inside of one, after all.
With Breather, there are no long-term agreements or commitments; clients can instantly reserve any tech-enabled space for a few hours, a day or even many months. This flexibility allows Breather to serve a wide variety of workspace needs, from team and client meetings to small events, individual work, product sprints and spillover space.
More crucially, Breather can ensure an experience that’s quiet, tidy and productive because there are no middlemen and no user-to-user marketplace; every space is leased, designed and operated in-house. And because the spaces are private suites accessed through a common corridor (like a typical office), there’s no need to pass through another company’s office or communal space to get to it. Just show up, type in your access code on the door’s keypad and get to work.
