Providing stimulating spaces that encourage residents to develop and establish their ideas, co-working offers a platform for great minds to mingle, share and thrive.
But that’s not all.
In this blog we explore five reasons why co-working has boomed over the past few years, as well as the benefits on offer in dynamic communities like that of Use.Space.
One of the most important aspects of co-working is the opportunity it presents to socialise with other like-minded individuals. Mingling with fellow freelancers and start-ups is conducive of a positive atmosphere, and often helps to create a sense of community that encourages people to share ideas and grow as individuals.
A shoulder to lean on
While collaborative environments can often provide a space that allows people to flourish and work to the best of their ability, there are times when residents may feel jaded, fatigued or generally down. In such instances, co-working itself can play a vital role in helping people overcome their woes – whether it’s through emotional support from a neighbouring desk, or professional coaching from an in-house mentor.
Education, education, education
Struggling with self-assessment? Lost when it comes to Lightroom? One of the greatest benefits of co-working is the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills from other residents. This could be consolidating skills in your own chosen field of work, or it could be acquiring a new skill entirely. Great news for anyone that’s looking to go it alone or enhance their CV in 2020.
When sharing a co-working space, networking becomes a much more enjoyable and organic experience. Not only does this allow residents to build a portfolio of contacts to support and develop their work, it may even result in more bookings and freelance commissions. Ker-ching!
Sure, working from home has its perks: relaxation, comfort, TV -but this doesn’t exactly encourage productivity. In fact, before you know it, you may find that you have watched a full series of Friends before putting pen to paper. This is where the unsung hero of benefits for co-working spaces comes into play: structure. Get up, get in and crack on. It really is that simple.
