Before you all read this article, let me ask you something, what comes first to your mind when you hear the word, coworking? Some of you might answer working together, some of you might even answer working in a coworking space. What is coworking then? Coworking is basically those two things combined together, it is simply working together in a shared environment, which mostly involves working in a coworking space. Here are five things you need to know about coworking:
The coworking space environment, where should we start, the first thing that crossed our mind is that it’s truly a flexible workspace. The working life in the normal office tends to constrict your time, whereas coworking space tends to be more flexible in working hours. You could even go to work and go home a few hours later. Could corporate office do that?
See, the thing which differs coworking and corporate office is that you manage your own time in a coworking space. As long as you get the job done, everything is fine. The reason why a number of people got bored at a corporate office is simply because they lack flexibility in working hours, and also lack entertainment that keeps the workers entertained, which leads us to next point.
Ever thought that working in an office seems a little dull? Well, coworking space is the exact opposite. Coworking space offers the vibes you wouldn’t get anywhere else, they have this lively yet conducive vibes where it makes you enjoy working there. Some coworking spaces even provide various entertainments varying from massage recliners to games like arcade machines, pool table and so on.
Coworking spaces understand that the way to keep their workers productive is to create a vibe where it is suitable enough for their workers to work. This is why most of them create these vibrant, modern, and even vintage architecture. It is simply appealing in terms of visual.
There are no other places that come to our mind to find a vast network. Nowadays, people have started to realize that they couldn’t find networks at a private office. Just imagine this scenario: You enter this huge private corporate office, and you ask the same question to 5 different people, “What company do you work for?” Now, what would they say? I know, it’s a silly question, why? Because they all work in the same company!
Now ask that exact same question to 5 different people, most of them will definitely answer differently. Why so? It is simply because 80% of the people working in a coworking space works for various companies, not only one.
Now I know what you’re thinking, the corporate office also has tons of facilities right? There are coffee machines, whiteboards, projectors, recliners, and so on. Sure you could say that, but one problem, and it always involves the expenses. How much would it cost you to pay for an office building and all those facilities? Now if you work in a coworking space, you’ll only need to pay for a certain specific amount and you would get several facilities included in the amount of money you paid for.
Need people to clean your dishes? Clean the table after using it for a meeting? Well, in the corporate office, you could do all of those things, by yourself, how about in the coworking world? Well, there are actually people who would wash the dishes, clean the meeting room once you finish using it.
You think you would get that at a more expensive price than in a private office, don’t you? Well, the fact is that you would get all those in a much more affordable price than you would get in a corporate office. You wouldn’t need to worry about not getting a service in a coworking space.
