There are all kinds of reasons why coworking makes perfect sense to individuals and companies. For this piece, we’re going to touch on the six reasons above. We’ll illustrate reasons why this new way of running many types of businesses is becoming more popular than a conventional office arrangement.
#1 Office Wihtout a Lease
For a lot of individuals and new companies, committing to a physical, long-term office lease is not even a viable option. This is especially the case in expensive, well-located areas in the center of towns and cities. Coffee shops and the home office usually do for the short term. Still, neither of these spaces do much to boost productivity or present a professional image in the longer term. This is where the coworking center bridges the gap. It’s the perfect alternative to leasing, and all the associated overheads that come with that. With our coworking center in Northern New Jersey you get everything you could possibly need without the commitment. And if you don’t use it, you don’t pay—it’s as simple as that.
- Here’s a quick look at the potential savings:
- No fixed, long-term lease costs
- No cleaning and other maintenance bills to bother with
- No furniture or technology to invest in
- No high-speed internet contracts to commit to
- No parking permits to purchase
- No staff cost for a receptionist
In a nutshell, a coworking center provides you with everything you would find with a modern office in a good central location. You may even get a lot more. At Office Evolution Hackensack’s coworking center, you don’t even have to buy your own coffee or other beverages—there is unlimited Starbuck coffee plus many other options.

#4 Versatile Model wiht Total Flexibility
A traditional office lease can tie you down whether you like it or not. For many companies, fixed term office leases become a problem rather than a solution. If you hit quiet times, where you only need half the space, you can’t simply half the rent with a conventional office agreement. With coworking there are plenty of options to upgrade and downgrade your workspace and services as your business changes on the fly. It’s a no-brainer, not only for startups and small companies, but for any business of any size that needs more flexible, hassle-free solutions. We support members from Paramus, Teaneck, New Milford, Englewood, Fort Lee, Tenafly, and other local communities.
Most businesses need to buy, maintain, and repair expensive office equipment—from printers to routers to furniture.

Working from a coworking center means you don’t have to worry. Office Evolution Hackensack in Bergen County, New Jersey provides a plug-n-play (or plug-n-work) environment, as the coworking space is setup already.
Here’s a quick rundown of the type of equipment that’s at your disposal:

#6 Networking Potential for New Jersey Professionals
Running a prosperous business in the 21st century often has some association with successful networking. There’s a lot of truth in the saying: ‘It’s not WHAT you know, but WHO you know.’ The home office and coffee shops are hardly ideal places to find networking opportunities. There is, however, plenty of networking potential in our New Jersey coworking center. Office Evolution Hackensack is designed to provide a collaborative environment where serious, ambitious, like-minded business professional come to work. It’s inevitable that you’ll get to meet up with folks who share the same or similar interests. You never know who you might meet in the communal kitchen or café or at a member event.
It’s quite possible to meet someone in our coworking center who offers something you want, or vice versa. For example, one of our members, a logistics company, hired the services of another member, an accountant. Networking is also useful for exchanging ideas, and introductions to third parties from fellow coworkers. No one has to network in our coworking centers—of course—it’s not a prerequisite. The point is that the potential is there for those who do. A lot of new contacts and potential business opportunities can—and often do—materialize during a coffee break. Recently, three members from different businesses began brainstorming, which ended up in the launch of a new business in the fashion space.
