Parity have been a returning client of Officio’s for many years now and are a great example of the partnership we aim to develop with all our clients – we are your all-in service for everything workspace related.
A Leap of Faith
Alex, Officio’s Client Services Director has placed Parity’s various branches in numerous workspaces, including those which were under construction at the time of the enquiry.
Understanding the business’ needs so well and having such strong relationships across the market, Alex was able to present a building site to Kathy, who was running the search, with enough knowledge and confidence that she took space. And she’s certainly glad she did.
By taking the time to truly listen to Kathy, Officio were confident that this up and coming new centre would be the perfect match for their requirement. This is the Officio difference, we bring workspaces to you, narrowing the market and opening up otherwise unavailable opportunities.
Parity also work closely with their clients, taking them on a journey – they have a people-led approach to data solutions and recruitment. And, with very high levels of customer service they know when things aren’t up to scratch. But Officio were able to deliver.
Before using Officio, Parity only leased their workspace however, as a business that knows the importance of staying agile, the flexible workspace model became a more appealing option. This is when Kathy pursued a recommendation, Officio.
Understanding Brand Values
Kathy told us, ‘I love working with Alex at Officio because he totally understands our brand. I don’t have to spend hours on the phone to him explaining what I want, he just gets it. He sends follow up e-mails and checks in regularly. He is a great guide and without him I couldn’t deliver the right workspace to support Parity’s needs.’
Parity’s latest search bought them back to Officio with the need for a more edgy workspace. Positivity and progression are part of Parity’s key values and they wanted a fresh, on trend space to reflect this. The XYZ building in Manchester bought them just that.
With a slightly industrial feel to the centre, yet with chic and fashionable furnishings, there remains a maturity about this uniquely stylish workspace – a perfect balance for a business representing a vast range of companies.
An Exciting Challange
Commenting on the latest search, Alex said, ‘This time the search for Parity took on a new direction. Not only were they branching out, moving to the centre of Manchester but they were also looking for a new style of workspace.
Although the search was atypical, the great relationship I’ve built with Kathy over the years made it as enjoyable as ever for me. Each workspace must impress more than the last and the challenge of finding Parity the perfect space is great.’
It was brilliant to hear how thrilled the Parity team were with their latest workspace while Kathy finished off our conversation by wishing Alex well for his upcoming wedding.
