What Are the Benefits of Working in a Coworking Space? | Office Evolution
If you have met someone who works out of a coworking space, the chances are good that he or she probably has a lot of positive things to say about it. Coworking is a rapidly growing business sector, escalated by more teams becoming distributed, remote or hybrid than ever before.
If you are not familiar with coworking, you may be wondering what the big deal is—after all, many people have found that they could do without going to the office everyday. However, coworking spaces provide the best of both worlds, offering a change of scenery from the home office while still giving workers the flexibility (and reduced commute) of working from home.
The Benefits of Working From a Coworking Space
People can be their whole selves at work. When you empower employees to work in a way that suits them best, you allow them to bring their whole selves to the workplace. By giving staff autonomy and flexibility, they can make decisions about the type of work that best suits them for any given day or during any given task—meaning they will be fully present when they choose to be and do their best work each day.
The environment lends itself to productivity. For those who find it easy to become distracted working from home, working out of a coworking space can be a great solution. Coworking spaces are generally chosen based on an employee’s proximity, so there is no long commute to deal with, and with flexible hours, workers can choose when and where they are able to get stuff done for the day.
Group work can keep loneliness at bay. A full-time work-from-home schedule can be great for some, but for many people, it can lead to feelings of loneliness and isolation—and these feelings are serious. Not only are they unpleasant, but feeling isolated can often lead to burnout, which can derail productivity and impact someone’s life significantly. Working amongst a coworking community can help to keep these feelings at bay, giving people interaction and a fresh perspective throughout their workday.
