This year has been eventful: Bowie, Prince plus many more famous faces have left us, Brexit, The US Presidential Election and much more. It has also been an action-packed year for Orega with lots of exciting changes taking place.
We launched our first coworking space, The Blue Room in MediaCityUK, Manchester. Offering a flexible working solution in a stylish and professional environment, we felt this was the perfect option for freelancers and entrepreneurs. With the success of The Blue Room, Orega now offer coworking options in our Leopold, Sablon and Gatwick centres as well.
After entering the Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies awards we were recognised in February as a “One to Watch” company. We were thrilled to be recognised for having good levels of employee engagement and an exciting future ahead of us.
The Leap 100 list of the 100 most exciting and fast-growing companies was released in April and Orega were happy to be featured in it. Being recognised as a business on the cusp of greatness and celebrated for our entrepreneurship, leadership and potential was an amazing achievement!
In June the serviced office industry was projected to be worth around £16bn and could reach a potential £126bn by 2025 according to a report by Capital Economics. This was excellent news for Orega as the sector’s growing appeal and strong returns could see its increasing attraction to investors.
We launched our latest centre in Canary Wharf in October completely occupied! Having a centre in one of the UK’s main financial and business hubs was important for our sixth location in London. Offering Grade A flexible office space amongst reputable organisations such as HSBC, Clifford Chance and KPMG, Orega Canary Wharf is an excellent base for any business.
In November we were thrilled to win the Best British Newcomer to Belgium Awards at the Golden Bridge Awards. This award recognised Orega’s successful first year in the Brussels market and bridging the gap between trade in Brussels and the UK. We were so happy that our commitment to giving businesses a platform in prime business locations was recognised.
2016 has been an exciting and successful year for Orega! In 2017, we are looking forward to future growth and continued investment in our valued employees.
