Co-working spaces have become a buzzword. In the recent past, it has become a key factor. A co-working space is basically a premise where people from different professions sit under a common roof and work. To put it simply, it is an arrangement where employees share an office to save money, conserve energy all while operating out of central locations.
Low on rental
One of the best features or advantages of co-working spaces is their budget friendly operational costs. Renting a desk at co-working spaces offers you access to nearly all the facilities which you need in a professional set up. And guess what? At affordable prices. Imagine trying to set up your own office and the heavy cost that you would have to pay apart from the infrastructure. Co-working spaces give you the relief of add-on expenses like maintenance, electricity, sanitation, security, fire and fit out insurance etc. that are taken care of by the space provider.
An impromptu conversation at the coffee counter may lead to a business collaboration or an exchange of ideas resulting in something new. All this is possible under one roof. Co-working spaces undoubtedly offer a sense of community and networking among the workers. We all want to grow in our respective work areas, and we look for opportunities in our immediate work circle that is by interaction and exchange of ideas with each other at the workplace. Thus, the co-working spaces facilitate this process by regularly organizing events and workshops for the people working there. This provides the people an opportunity to meet each other and expand their network.
Hi-Speed & Reliable Wi-Fi
Hi-Speed and reliable internet is the need of the hour. In fact, it is one of the basic things we look for when starting work. Co-working spaces allow you to enjoy Hi-Speed internet by making sure that every inch of the space is connected to a Wi-Fi network, from desk space, meeting rooms, the break-out rooms, corridors, to all the other common areas. Moreover, co-working spaces always have both primary as well secondary Wi-Fi connection, so you never miss “the connect”.
Work Out facility
Being a workaholic is real today, but so is being cautious of our bodies and health. Besides a good diet, workout is now an integral part of life. But the work pressure sometimes takes over and working on our bodies takes a back seat. That’s where a co-working space trumps a normal office setup. There are co-working spaces with gyms inside, so the people using the space can workout along with working!
