Working in an office Co-Working Space gives SMEs, entrepreneurs and freelancers access to the facilities and perks of conventional office space without all the hidden extra costs that go with it.
Here are our top 4 reasons for why we think working in a shared office space can be very beneficial for the success of SMEs, entrepreneurs and freelancers:
1. Promotes Collaboration and Networking Opportunities
From a business development point of view, office co-working spaces provide the perfect opportunity to network, find new work and collaborate with other businesses. The networking benefits don’t just extend to the realm of business; it also provides the opportunity for social interaction for those who usually work at home alone.
2. Aids A Better Work / Life Balance
Working from home can be distracting and can often blur the lines between work life and home life. You may find yourself becoming unproductive, like doing your washing when you should be working, but this can also spin the other way. You may overwork yourself at home and find yourself working ungodly hours.
Having a separate work environment prevents the two spheres of your life merging together and boosts your productivity. A separate work space can help prevent over-working and stress and permits some much-needed space from work, both physically and mentally!
3. Provides Flexibility and Room to Grow
Office co-working space gives you the flexibility to expand or shrink your team as required. You can start with a single desk space and grow from there.
4. Access to A Variety of Office Resources, Without Breaking the Bank
Shared working spaces are furnished, pre-cabled and offer various amenities, which can be extremely cost-effective for small businesses and freelancers who don’t have the funds to buy all to the resources.
