Finding reliable spaces to get work done is a real challenge, especially for solo entrepreneurs, small companies, and people with nomadic schedules. Coffee shops, bookstores, and even libraries are just not cutting it anymore —on top of having many distractions, they often lack all the amenities needed in a working environment.
Fortunately, the demand for reliable spaces paved the way for shared co-working spaces offering a new way to work for all kinds of working individuals. This model provides so many workplace benefits that would otherwise be harder to obtain in a traditional office environment. Here are the 5 major benefits:
Regardless of the kind of work you do, the shared workspace provides you with everything you need to succeed including being located in amazing booming locations with high desirability, near all the action. Another perk is the buildings themselves —they offer on-site parking, free gyms, cafés, and security teams. These perks are rare in most traditional office spaces; therefore, they are unique to this kind of experience.
Affordability of Workspaces
In addition to location and building perks, the costs are also fairly low and quite achievable compared to the traditional renting options. They work as membership fees that are charged on a month-to-month basis with prices ranging from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand depending on the amount of time you spent in a location and the number of people that use the space. The scalability of the memberships also makes shared-spaces perfect options for short-term or sporadic uses.
Simple Setup and Takedown
A lot of tedious work goes into handling the logistics of a company-wide move. Therefore, when requiring an easy plug-in-environment, especially for small businesses with only a handful of employees, the shared-space leaves you stress-free. No more ordering office furniture, paying for expensive equipment like copiers or setting up your tech. The shared-spaces already have everything prepared for you; all that is required is the individual and their personal work materials.
Use and Needs Scalability
Being locked into a rental agreement does not allow business owners the flexibility needed when scaling their business. Being stuck in a multi-year contract when your company is scaling rapidly is a nightmare. The shared workspaces offer the flexibility needed that fit the business’ needs as they come about in real-time while your needs are measured on a monthly basis.
Most importantly, the kinds of networking opportunities that are offered through the shared workspaces are instrumental and have a high reward. The multiplicity of fields that are brought together through shared-workspaces increases community, creating an essential functionality of co-working areas that is central to their success.
The promise and the life-changing opportunities that shared working environments create are altering what it means to have a business. More and more employees and business owners love these new experiences.
