Three Reasons the Shared Office is a Favorite of Independent Professionals
Independent professionals such as yourself enjoy greater autonomy compared to traditional employees. The biggest way in which this is true is their ability to choose where they work from. Home offices and coffee shops are popular choices for many independent professionals, but they do have some disadvantages over a professional workspace. If you find your productivity or professionalism lacking because you work from home or coffee shops, it’s time to consider an alternative. One option is a traditional office space, but these are expensive and require long-term leases. The best solution many independent professionals have found is shared office space.
Why shared office space?
1. Improved Productivity
By renting space in a shared office, you’ll be working in a space that’s primary purpose is to work. The members you share the space with are also there to work. There are far fewer distractions than you’ll find at home (laundry, television, kids, etc.) and at a coffee shop (loud conversations, casual atmosphere, etc.). Your productivity will benefit from having a space you know is specifically for doing work.
2. Professional Image
Inviting clients to meetings at a coffee shop or your home is anything but professional. Shared office spaces like those from Office Evolution provide conference and meeting room options. These spaces are professional and provide all the necessary presentation tools to impress current and potential clients. Google addresses and telephone services like answering, transferring, and voicemail also add a layer of professionalism that working from home or a coffee shop cannot compete with.
3. Networking Opportunities
Because these spaces are shared, many different types of professionals use them. Web designers and developers, lawyers, accountants, mediators, startups, writers, and freelancers can all be found in shared office spaces. At Office Evolution Hackensack, we even have acupuncturists, CPR instructors and Reiki gurus, to name a few. Striking up a conversation with those you share the space with could allow you new clients, business partners, or employees. Collaboration opportunities are highly valued among the members of these spaces.
Besides the obvious benefits of more flexibility and lower costs, independent professionals choose shared office spaces for improved productivity, a more professional image, and the networking opportunities with other creative professionals and entrepreneurs. By paying a month-to-month rental fee, you’ll have a space that improves your productivity because it is solely for working. You’ll also improve your image because these spaces are professional and outfitted with all the tools you need. And remember, it’s all about who you know so meeting new professionals in your shared office space is a great way to find creative people to work with.
