With flexible workspace now considered a vital component of the workplace ecosystem, how should landlords successfully value a flexible workspace proposition?

Realising the Value of Flex

Flexible workspace has firmly cemented its place in the real estate market in recent years with record levels of take-up by flexible workspace operators.
