Why Co-Working Continues to Grow

The pandemic has affected millions of people in how they conduct their business. Corporate offices are near empty, people are working from home, and zoom calls are now the norm. While a vaccine is arriving soon, the way we work will continue to involve virtual meetings and conference calls from the living room in the near future.

There is an industry that will continue to grow long after the pandemic ends and that is co-working. Co-working spaces have remained steady during this unprecedented time and it is expected to grow exponentially in the coming months and years. There are many reasons for the boost in interest. One reason for people looking to co-working spaces is the flexibility it offers. Most co-working centers offer month-to-month memberships allowing a new business to analyze their needs without worrying about generating enough revenue to afford a long term lease.

Another attractive attribute of co-working space is the convenience. Shared workspace centers are classified as essential businesses because they offer mail services. So while other businesses were forced to close their spaces during the pandemic, co-working spaces remained open. Another convenient perk is the 24/7 secure access to the business center allowing members to work at their hours not the normal business center hours.

Lastly, co-working spaces will continue to rise because while working from home continues to be prevalent during the pandemic it will not last forever. Corporate America will need their employees back in some form or manner. Small business owners and entrepreneurs will need office space to get their businesses running. Business still is best practiced in person. We need that human interaction that creates new deals, ideas, and an environment that fosters mentorship. While businesses will go about this carefully, many will need a physical location to conduct their efforts. Co-working spaces will give entrepreneurs and corporations a place to get work done in a professional manner. The boost in morale alone will be greatly beneficial because we as humans crave social interactions. The emerging industry will come out of the pandemic stronger making co-working prosperous for years to come.
