There was a time when freelancers just couldn’t deal with working alone at home, so they would just rush to the nearest Starbucks or library. Working among people gave them a sense of human interaction. Freelancers still feel isolated sitting all day at home and working all by themselves. But things have changed now, thanks to co-working spaces!
Now, people just pick up their laptops and simply go to a co-working space. People from all walks of business come and work under one roof. All they have to do is pay a certain amount of rent for working in that space. A co-working space is not only for solopreneurs; in fact, small or mid-sized start-ups are also choosing to work in these spaces.
But why are people turning towards co-working spaces? It’s simple – it is very convenient. Well, there are many other advantages, which makes a co-working space one of the most efficient and productive workplaces around. What are the advantages? Let’s find out.
There is no denying that the more people you meet, the more you extend your network. In traditional workplaces, you work with the same people every day and your network doesn’t grow. But co-working spaces are the exact opposite of it. One day you meet a writer, another day may be a developer, and perhaps you even meet a new client. And you never know who you’ll meet next! Many freelancers secure jobs from such an environment and some end up collaborating with each other. Isn’t that a great way to meet and collaborate?
2. Freedom of Work
The best part about a co-working workspace is that you work whenever you want to (unless you have a deadline). There are no time constraints. You decide the best time for you to work and show up. The monotonous work culture is never a fear when working in a co-working environment. You can even choose a private office in case you ever want to work alone for a while. Well, we definitely don’t get so many options in a traditional workplace.
3. No Hassle of Utility Bills
For entrepreneurs who own start-ups and traditional workplaces, it becomes very difficult to manage all the bills, including electricity and many others. But in a co-working space, there is no such hassle. You just bring your laptop and unleash your productivity! In fact, a co-working space provides you stuff like printer, chairs, and Wi-Fi.
In addition to these reasons, millennials are fans of co-working places because of many social benefits. Many co-working places also organize all kinds of events and games for everyone to get together once in a while. Wouldn’t all of us want a place like that? A place that brings the best out of us.
