Buying a first-class train ticket is the best thing I have done. I can always get a seat, it is brilliant. And taking up rugby was fantastic. It is easy to forget about exercising when you are concentrating on work.

The Telegraph is one of the UK’s leading sources of news and other important information regarding issues of great relevance today, and in September this year, contributor Rachel Bridge directed attention toward time-consumers and stress triggers in the workplace (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/think-tank/11094173/Stop-checking-emails-if-youre-stressed-out.html). To get hard facts regarding professional burnout and stress, as well as effective solutions, Bridge got in touch with people who can share their story, and one of them was Giles Fuchs, Managing Director of one of the UK’s leading serviced office companies, Office Space in Town (OSiT).

Fuchs stated that at the age of 40, he “dreaded the daily long-distance commute to his office and felt increasingly unfit.” Overall, he was unhappy and unhealthy. It’s probably difficult for some to connect the man at the brink of a full-blown professional burnout with the man who currently provides impressive office space solutions to growing enterprises across the country, but indeed, Fuchs went through that incredibly challenging phase in his career.

But as someone who devises effective solutions, he was able to catch himself before it was too late and apply little tweaks which managed to trigger a massive change in both his personal and professional lives.

“Buying a first-class train ticket is the best thing I have done. I can always get a seat, it is brilliant. And taking up rugby was fantastic. It is easy to forget about exercising when you are concentrating on work,” Fuchs shared.

As simple as these solutions may be, they allowed him to unload some of the daily pressures that were weighing heavily on him, restore his health and joy, and gain better perspective. The experience definitely served as a blessing because the lessons from it provided him the opportunity to be more effective as a professional solutions provider. As the managing director of a top serviced office company, Fuchs dependably comes up with and integrates sound ideas to the company he serves, which provides the serviced offices London businesses nowadays require to stay competitive.

For example, in addressing all the negative impacts of frequently answering emails during the workday (including other types of correspondence), OSiT’s London serviced offices include expertly trained receptionists who can take care of them so business owners and employees can focus more on the work they’re truly supposed to do. These receptionists can easily provide answers to trivial queries from demanding business connections (such as partners and clients).

Also, they filter messages so only the most important ones that they do not have the authority to reply to get coursed to the appropriate personalities. It’s also worth noting that the arrangement comes with other perks, such as free use of the company’s meeting rooms (along with necessary equipment) for events that require a bigger space to accommodate more participants and special events.

With Fuchs’ experience, it’s no wonder OSiT’s office spaces are highly in demand and some of the most innovative, for the company really takes its experience and in-depth understanding to heart in generating ideal solutions. For Fuchs and everybody at OSiT, creating convenience for their clients is “the commitment.” It’s not just about providing spaces for operations, but rather, well-rounded solutions to support the highest quality of administrative operations where employees get to manage their time well, and consistently produce great output without being stretched too thin by daily office requirements.
