The modern office doesn’t quite look like it used to, and for entrepreneurs, startups, small businesses, and even corporate enterprises, that’s a good thing. Pay-as-you-go offices and coworking spaces like Office Evolution are enabling smaller businesses and solopreneurs to compete with larger corporations and providing larger companies a faster route-to-market in establishing new offices in suburban areas.
Here’s a closer look at the top office space options for suburban professionals and how Office Evolution can deliver the solution that best fits your business.
Coworking spaces are also referred to as shared workspaces. Users can pay by the day or sign up for a membership, where they receive a desk and chair, internet access, and other amenities like coffee or printing services.
As more employees and freelancers are working remotely, the interest in coworking spaces is surging. In 2018, nearly 1,000 new coworking spaces opened in the United States. Growth has slowed, but that’s largely because existing coworking spaces are focused on expanding internally and diversifying their office services.
The benefits of a coworking environment are varied. For many workers who would otherwise be working from home, coworking provides valuable networking opportunities that can help them grow their business. It also gives them a way to keep work and home life separate, and it has even been shown to improve productivity versus working from home. Many businesses set up their employees in coworking offices to save on overhead, especially if the company has workers all over the country and doesn’t want a dedicated office in each market.

If you’re looking for something a little more private than the open office, a private workspace might be right for you. Coworking spaces also offer semi-private and private office options so you can close yourself off to the rest of the facility and focus on your best work. This is an ideal option for professionals who take lots of phone calls or conduct private business, or anyone who values quiet and privacy while they work.
Businesses that have multiple employees and need multiple offices can take advantage of executive suites and keep everyone under the same roof. Many companies opt for a suite of offices in a coworking space because they can pay a fixed monthly fee and keep costs under control. Plus, it gives them a clear way to scale their office space without incurring major costs.
Virtual offices are becoming a popular option for companies that want to establish themselves in a particular market without having a physical location there. You can get a real mailing address and phone number, and even have a live receptionist take calls on your behalf. Even if you work from home, you can still project the high-level image that comes with owning an office in some of the most attractive markets in the country.
Some businesses use conference rooms every day, while others may need a conference space every once in a while. In either case, coworking environments can provide you with conference room access on demand. The use of a conference room is included in Office Evolution memberships, plus you can add meeting room time if you go over your allotment. This way, you’re only paying for a conference room when you need it to help you save on overhead.
