Globally, the work environment is changing. Mobile technology and global business trends allow for people to work less hours in a traditional office and more from their own homes. However, working alone at home can be isolating, demotivating, and often unproductive. Many business owners and managers are realizing that working from home neglects the advantages of having a shared office space with others. The solution that is on the rise in many cities is co-working.
Co-working offices are innovative and collaborative spaces where people can go to work in their choice of private rooms, shared offices, or open desks. Co-working offices offer shared services and equipment such as internet, phone access, and printing. Centrally located in many city centers, co-working affords its members the flexibility of working in an environment that suits their current project and their mood.
More importantly, co-working is shown to increase overall productivity by removing distractions from family members, the TV, or other personal life interruptions. Surrounded by other professionals, co-working members increase motivation and creativity. Co-working helps to expand one’s network, giving its members a chance to meet new people and gain insight from others in their industry and beyond.
