CoWorking in a Gig Economy

As we enter into a new business landscape of non-traditional office environments, the entrepreneurial spirit has extended into the world of temporary and remote offices. The concept of coworking has become a global phenomenon. With the increase in digital capabilities, many jobs no longer require people to be in an office to perform their daily duties. This has given people the freedom to establish themselves in rented desks and virtual offices. By providing a strong work-life balance that continues to be a key selling point for any employee, an open-door coworking space can give the 21st-century worker the option to dictate their own hours and work on multiple projects.

The truth is, more and more people, especially young people, are choosing to change careers with regularity. Whether it’s for a new challenge, the opportunity to collaborate on a fresh startup idea or simply for economical advancement, the old adage of sticking with a career and then switching every 5 years to ‘learn your trade’ has come to be somewhat passe. People develop skills relevant to rapid technology shifts and they bring these abilities with them to evolving trends in a developing
professional community. Coworking spaces allow people to be visible to talent recruiters and also allow them to stay abreast of industry trends and even the possibility to mingle with competition.

The trend of coworking will continue to grow as many people opt out of traditional workspace options. Many large corporations have begun to establish their operations within coworking and
incubator spaces. This workspace revolution continuously grows at an exponential pace for many reasons but the most important is that it allows companies to surround their workers with innovative thinkers at a reduced cost compared to the rising cost of traditional business real estate.

Coworking – 4 reasons to join the Revolution

Coworking spaces have become a revolution. A hub for people of all trains of thought and inventive backgrounds to come together to create and develop innovative ideas. Why is the coworking space such a growing concept?

1. Community. Coworking brings about a sense of community for those who use rented spaces to help them build their ideas. Not having to be ‘ON’ in a workplace setting allows for people to not worry about the politics and bureaucracies that come with traditional offices. The openness that comes from seeing familiar faces who don’t represent competition but rather collaboration. Sharing a workspace brings together thinkers of all industries who can provide people with ideas that they might not have access to elsewhere.

2. Suitability. Coworking allows for people to dictate their own schedules. Instead of the traditional 9-5, shared workspaces offer the opportunity for people to choose the hours they wish to work. For the individual who finds themselves captivated with the creative juices in the evening, or at the break of dawn, can now use this availability to their advantage by working whenever, for however long they wish. With most shared workspaces offering 24/7 access, it’s easy to venture into your workspace at your own discretion and do your best work at a time that works best for you.

3. Convenience. Nothing speaks to the growing popularity of coworking spaces like the ease and convenience of obtaining a temporary desk. The ability to bring your work and ideas to a location that can easily be relocated or customized based on the individuals needs. Many
workspace providers will allow for tenants to select and customize their spaces to best suit the type of business in question. If there are more people being added to your growing company, larger areas can be supplied to accommodate any type of operation.

4. Perks. Many coworking spaces offer other business amenities to create the feeling that the space does represent the traditional office that brings about everyday business solutions. These amenities can include reception services to give the business administrative features, along with immediate, added credibility to prospective clients. Boardrooms for presentations and client meetings are common for coworking spaces and are typically offered with exclusive first-access to tenants. Lounges and social areas have now become a popular trend within coworking spaces to amplify the integration of companies even more.
