Like every business The Hatch Lab is dealing with a very different 2020 that any of us could ever have anticipated at the start of the year. We met with CEO John O’Connor who spoke with us regarding the impact of COVID-19 to The Hatch Lab and how remote working has now become the norm for so many employees and companies.

The Hatch Lab offers the opportunity for people to work closer to home as an alternative to the daily commute in and out of the county, it also provides people with a facility to assist with a work life balance. Many of the companies who worked from home during the lockdown saw the benefit of having an office to go to and draw a line between their work life and home life which is much needed! John believes the experience of lockdown has given people a chance to regroup and an opportunity to reorganise their lives to the optimum! The Hatch Lab offers affordable, flexible office rentals so it is perfect for start-ups or people working from home who enjoy an office atmosphere without the commute.

Part of the appeal of The Hatch Lab is the modern and spacious building that is fully serviced offering an open plan office with 51 desks and four office units that can accommodate up to 30 people. New safety measures and COVID-19 compliant systems are reassuring to the companies based in this state of the art office complex outside Gorey town. The key message is that The Hatch Lab is open for full time residents, this will become your office and we are focused on your safety and security, letting you focus on running your business or carrying on your work from a new venue.

A full COVID audit has ensured the best care procedures are in place and John is delighted to announce in the very near future a new UV robot will be part of these procedures which will disinfect the office areas at night time! “ It’s very space-age but we felt all measures were necessary for the safety of our clients and staff here in Gorey” laughs John!

There have been several enquiries from families looking to relocate to Gorey and North Wexford from people who have previously hot desked with us in the past as the lifestyle we can offer them here is in line with what people want in this post COVID era. Gorey is filled with wonderful schools, stunning walks and trails along with the most stunning beaches yet there is a cosmopolitan and energetic feel to the town with so many restaurants and cafes to choose from! It very easy to see how moving here would be very appealing to an employee or business owner. Our latest tenant was based in London and is continuing his role with his company but from his desk in The Hatch Lab!
