In recent years, coworking spaces have become increasingly popular. More and more companies are transitioning to shared office spaces to access and enjoy benefits that traditional office spaces may not be able to match. Here are 5 reasons why companies should consider using coworking spaces:

Flexibility

One of the greatest advantages of coworking spaces is the flexibility offered. Whether you’re looking for a long-term home for your team, a short-term space to bridge a need, or just a few days each month to get together with colleagues, coworking spaces have solutions to accommodate the unique needs of your business. Plus, it’s easy to scale up or down as needed, without the hassle or expense of moving to a whole new office space. At Workhaus, one of the many ways that we create flexibility is by offering desk booking solutions through our FlexDesk system, enabling companies to schedule and cycle different staff members and business units into the office on different days. This allows them to utilize a smaller office footprint while maintaining a central office hub with access for all of their staff.

Cost Savings

A recent study found that in 96% of cities analyzed, using a coworking space was more affordable than leasing a traditional office. Most coworking spaces offer a range of amenities, including meeting rooms, high-speed internet, printing services, kitchen facilities, and regular programming to keep staff happy and engaged. Many also handle daily operational and administrative tasks, such as maintenance, cleaning, and security. The full service solution coworking spaces offer helps businesses save money and free up time so they can focus on their core activities.

Networking Opportunities

Coworking spaces provide ample opportunities for networking and collaboration. They bring together professionals from a wide variety of industries and backgrounds, providing diverse perspectives and access to expertise that can lead to the exchange of ideas, collaborative opportunities, new partnerships, investments placed, and new friendships. At Workhaus, we have a diverse range of members and companies and have seen all of the above take place.

Professional Image

For small and growing businesses that may not have the resources to lease or own their own office space, coworking spaces provide the professional image needed. This can help them attract new clients or customers and build trust with their existing. But it’s not just an option for small and growing businesses! Plenty of enterprises use coworking spaces too. There happens to be a growing trend of companies offering employees a stipend to use toward coworking spaces, with Basecamp, Recharge, and Encamp as just a few examples!

Increased Productivity

The focused, flexible, and professional work environment that coworking offers can lead to happier and more productive employees, as they are able to work in a way that best suits their specific needs. “69% of office workers say they are more productive when they can work in a variety of settings during the workday”. Access to boardrooms, lounges, kitchens, phone booths, and multi-purpose breakout work areas make coworking spaces a perfect choice for those who a seeking productivity boost!
