What are the benefits of co-working spaces?
A co-working space is so much more than just an office. Speaking from our own personal experience, the benefits of these spaces start where your own business’s space ends. Does that sound confusing? Well, let us explain. Co-working spaces are where minds come together; you have your small office or hot desk, where you can sit and focus on your great idea. However, right next to you and in fact all around you, hundreds of people are working on their own brilliant plans.
Putting so many entrepreneurs under one roof makes for a creative environment, where innovations can revolutionise the business world. The role of the space and its community managers is to provide opportunities for everybody to meet. By organising anything from the simplest after work drinks to give people the ability to meet and network, to bringing in guest speakers who can give talks on their respective areas of expertise, they help founders grow their businesses and utilise the best hacks in order to succeed.
It is never too hard to get feedback on your business and advice is free and openly given. Business partnerships can form over coffee or lunch and working together to benefit each other’s businesses is something you can see all around you.
Co-working spaces offer much more than networking opportunities though. Yoga and mindfulness classes, manicures and even nap time can be important self care activities to enhance productivity through a calm and relaxing environment. Keeping yourself energised and motivated can work wonders for your work performance.
