Working from home is now a normal part of most industries. While this in itself has its pros and cons, many people find that being cooped up home for extended periods can be draining and exhausting, not to mention unproductive.
Enter coworking spaces, the new solution to the work from home dilemma where you get office perks without needing to go into office.
Here’s a list of benefits of coworking spaces we want you to know.
1. Increases Productivity
Working from home has its perks, but ask anyone who’s tried it for an extended period and you’ll know it’s not always great for productivity. If you have a separate office space in your home, you may be doing fine.
However, not everyone has the space for a separate work table and a fancy office chair next to their living room where they can work in peace. Coworking spaces offer a nice venue separate from your home where you can focus on work and be more productive.
Some coworking spaces even have private offices with nice soundproofing so you can really get your groove on without getting distracted by the kettle whistling or the oven chiming.
2. Increases Flexibility
Traditional office spaces are great, too, but they’re not often startup friendly. If you’re still a growing company with no budget for a stable space, coworking spaces are a great option because they offer varied office spaces and layouts that foster flexibility.
This helps, too, in case your company feels the need to grow bigger in size because you can switch office spaces pretty easily as compared to when you sign a lease for a traditional office.
3. Networking and Collab
However, it’s not only like minded people you’ll find here. Coworking spaces are specially great venues for networking and collaborations because you get to meet so many different people from so many different groups.
If your company needs certain skills but lacks the people, you can certainly just ask around and find recommendations from the people in your coworking space.
4. In-Office Perks
Apart from meeting different people, coworking spaces are fun because they offer in-office perks without actually being in an office. There’s coffee, tea, snacks, great internet speed, office supplies and a lot more perks you can experience there.
Some places even have gyms, sit-stand desks, and fun events every other occasion.
5. Boosts Creativity
Take all the previous entries on our list together and you get one more perk: a boost in creativity. Having a great working environment is always a good place to start if you need fresh ideas.
It’s also great to interact with people for some fresh inspiration, so we really think you should give coworking spaces a try if you haven’t already.
All in all, coworking is a great option if you’re tired of your home office set-up or in need of a change of pace from your usual office. However, if you think your office can turn into a great working space too and simply needs a bit of a makeover, here are some articles you may want to see:
