THE USUAL SUSPECTS
Co-working spaces create the best of both worlds for freelancers: The flexibility of choosing your own hours and schedule without the isolation.
These shared spaces are thus great for freelancers. A feeling of community is created for those that would otherwise be forced to work alone at home, or a coffee shop.
Start-ups appreciate the flexibility of coworking spaces. Coworking spaces don’t come with the high costs and commitments of a traditional office leases. They also provide the chance for small teams to interact with others in the space. These spaces also may even help entrepreneurs find a co-founder for their start-up by connecting the right people at the right time.
THE CONCEPT IS WORKING WELL
Coworking spaces provide a great fit for these type of small organizations. There’s an inherent alignment between what the spaces offer and the goals of freelancers and start-ups.
A team of researchers have been studying the effects of coworking on productivity and recently recounted some of their findings in the The Harvard Business Review.
Their research showed a strong connection between employees thriving in these shared workspaces vs regular offices. So much so that they decided to take a deeper look at coworking spaces. The team of researchers found that people who use coworking spaces have different attitudes as a result of their space. Correlated with coworking spaces were feelings of: more meaningful work, more job control, and having a sense of community.
