You’ve likely heard of coworking if you have been keeping up with workplace trends over the past few years. But do you really know what it is? A coworking space is basically a shared office space where people pay for desk space and all the perks of working in an office. There’s no obligation to work 40 hours per week. This is a great setup for most people!
Although coworking may not be for everyone, the number of people who have used it has increased by over 1,000% over the past decade. We have included some questions below that will help you decide if coworking is right for you.
If you are considering coworking, here are some questions to ask yourself.
Is it better to work in a designated environment? While many people enjoy the freedom of working from home, others may feel that being at home all day is not the best way to achieve top productivity. A coworking space with Signature Workspace might be right for you if you are looking to work from home, but still have the flexibility to travel to a workplace at times.
Do you like autonomy in your workday? This is coworking. Workers can pay for the space, but it is up to them to decide how and how often they use it. Office Evolution has a range of work areas available for members. If you don’t like the traditional 9-5, coworking spaces are a great alternative.
Would you like to be part of a community? Being an entrepreneur, freelancer, or someone who works in isolation can make it difficult to feel connected. A coworking space is an excellent way to connect with others in similar roles. You will also be able to meet many other people in different fields.
