In a recent landmark study about the advantages of co-working spaces, a significant number of professionals that switched over to co-working found that it affected their work-life balance, productivity, and their ability to collaborate. A number of professionals that had never used a collaborative space found that they were more productive, they had a larger business network and they were able to create and collaborate on more projects than ever before.
Understanding the survey results would suggest that remote professionals that are working in the working spaces are able to network more effectively. Go working can present a massive amount of value over the confined spaces of a traditional office. Rather than embracing the private office space was segregated desks, people are thriving and collaborative workspaces because of the value of joining with like-minded individuals.
A co-working space is an excellent way to get involved with interesting projects and with individuals that are willing to share their knowledge. It’s not likely that you would meet someone that could further your business working from home or working in a café. In an open and collaborative office space where you’re working with other like-minded individuals, it’s very likely that you could find someone that could turn into your next client, employer, or business partner.
The spirit of collaboration is alive in many collaborative office spaces and you can bring your own skills to the table and projects that other people are working on as well.
Roughly 40% of all co-working professionals worldwide have been able to establish an office collaboration as a result of their experience in a shared office space. Just by joining into a shared office space, you can feel more comfortable networking and collaborating and innovate for the future of your business.
As creativity and passion often thrive in these co-working spaces, choosing to join one of these innovation centers can be an excellent way that you can grow your network and truly invest in the future of your business.
