Why co-working?

There are some good reasons for the growing popularity of co-working. More and more people are working for themselves, as contractors, freelancers or small business owners.

 

At the same time, the function of physical offices is changing. Increasingly, the internet, companies’ digital platforms and e-mail are the workplace.

 

Rather than serving as the main places where “real work” gets done, physical offices are evolving into places where people get together and share ideas, make use of shared equipment and meet clients. Real work might happen at the office – but it’s just as likely to happen at home, at a local café or while people are on the move.

 

Co-working spaces tie in perfectly with these trends.

 

Ideally, a co-working environment includes a mix of common spaces and private workspaces. So people can set up and work in their own spaces, benefit from the cost advantages of sharing real estate and office facilities and easily meet and interact with others.
