Skootr, a co-working space provider, leases out 27,000 sq. ft. of office space in Jaipur to MattsenKumar, a call centre outsourcing company. With this long lease deal, MattsenKumar will expand to 1,000 seats from 500 seats.
This new development shows the need for office spaces in the industry and they are open to move into the co-working spaces. Also, many companies are looking to move to tier-II cities and in fact, conduct their operations from there. The main reason behind this changed mindset among corporates, start-ups and medium-sized enterprises is to cut operational cost.
According to the Founder of Skootr – Punnet Chandra – the attrition rate human resources is lower and the availability of any space and workforce has been affordable which could be the factors for companies to opt for tier-II cities.
“With companies like MattsenKumar, having larger employees strength, opting for coworking spaces we feel the revolution in the segment has begun. We feel more such established companies will opt plug-and-play model to stay away from the hassles of office management,” adds Puneet Chandra, Founder, Skootr.
In next two months, Skootr is opening two more co-working spaces in Bengaluru and Gurgaon.
