How can you and your team thrive in a coworking environment?

Have you ever felt like your workspace was missing something? Maybe that spark of collaboration and creativity needed to take projects to the next level. Coworking environments provide this opportunity, allowing people in similar fields with diverse backgrounds an open forum for inspiration and innovation - all while having flexible hours!

Coworking has become increasingly popular in recent years as more and more people embrace the benefits of flex space. Coworking environments provide a number of advantages for both businesses and individuals, making them a perfect solution for the modern workplace. These spaces provide a unique environment that helps people to thrive in their work.

Coworking for Businesses:

Coworking spaces offer a cost-effective way to expand their operations without the need for traditional office space. They also provide businesses with the flexibility to scale their operations up or down as needed. Coworking spaces also provide an excellent opportunity for networking and collaboration or even sourcing new talent from the community. And with so many people working in close proximity in similar industries, it's easy to strike up a conversation and exchange ideas.

Coworking for Individuals:

Coworking spaces provide a place to work that is alternative to the traditional office setting. The ability to choose your own hours, work from anywhere, and meet other like-minded people and establish a professional network, are just some of the reasons why coworking is so popular. In addition, coworking spaces often provide access to shared amenities such as meeting rooms and kitchen facilities. As the popularity of coworking continues to grow, so too does the demand for flex space.

The Perks

Here are the top 3 overall perks we hear from industry insiders who study work habits, like JLL and CBRE, and even our members!

People have more ownership of their time, space, and work.

When people come to coworking spaces, they are able to bring their whole selves. They feel a little less filtered than in a single-business office and have more authority over their space and work. A flexible schedule and workflow improves personal authenticity in a way that traditional office buildings don't. Additionally, it's great being around other likeminded individuals who share your passion or just want something different from life too!

Coworking spaces are great for people who want more job control.

Coworking spaces like Phase Two Space are usually accessible 24/7.  They can choose whether they work solo, in a quiet space with just one other individual, or interact and collaborate with coworkers. The benefit is in choosing the when and where those interactions happen - at shared tables? around projectors?, etc.? The options are endless!

Trust in employees to choose where/when they work fosters team loyalty.

Giving people more responsibility to get their work done in their own way, increases productivity and makes people happier. Happiness improves people's work and their moods. As Richard Bronson, Founder of the Virgin Group once said, " Take care of your employees and they will take care of your Business."

In Summary

Coworking spaces are often more affordable than traditional office space, making them a great option for small businesses and freelance workers. But it's the flexible nature of coworking spaces also makes them ideal for hybrid work models. By allowing employees to split their time between office and home and add a little diversity to where they work, you will greatly impress your team and get better results. The implications for traditional companies are huge. Even though the coworking movement began among freelancers, entrepreneurs and tech industry workers; it's increasingly relevant in a widening range of industries - including your own! You can incorporate this into your workplace strategy by using shared office space as an opportunity to build connections with other employees or customers on site at any given time (and even provide them some digital assistance). And if that isn't enough incentive then there’s always all those wellness and team cohesion benefits… As the workplace continues to evolve towards remote and hybrid work strategies, it's clear that coworking spaces will play an important role in the future of work.
