What Is Coworking?

ChadChad

When thinking about places to work, most think about the traditional company office setting, while some prefer working from the comfort of their own home or at their local coffee shop. For small business owners, working from home has many benefits, but also has several drawbacks. It can be isolating, filled with distractions leading to low productivity, and may not be the most professional environment in which to meet people or have client meetings. Similarly, a coffee shop can be noisy, distracting, void of sufficient electrical outlets, or have slow Wi-Fi, and staying for longer than a few hours can be seen as loitering. On the other hand, renting an office can be expensive, risky and overwhelming for entrepreneurs who want to focus on building their business rather than worrying about fluctuating utility bills, office maintenance, and a leasing commitment that is usually five or more years.

What if you were to take the best of all of these places and blend them together? This is where a new type of work environment comes into play, and it’s called coworking. Coworking a style of work that involves a shared working environment while still maintaining independent activity. This vastly growing concept is seen as an innovative and dynamic way to work, providing the most accessible, flexible and professional environment possible at an affordable monthly rate.

Although it may have the same amenities of a regular office environment, a coworking space is unique because internally it consists of a community of individuals from a wide range of industries, companies and organizations with different professions and skillsets. These individuals can network and connect with each other within the same space; helping and supporting each other grow their own businesses. Coworking spaces typically employ full-time staff members to help facilitate these connections.

Coworking spaces are attractive to mobile workers, work-at-home professionals, independent contractors, start-up groups, freelancers, small businesses, and organizations because it provides a level of infrastructure typically found in an office without the costly overhead and multi-year lease agreements typically required for an office environment. A receptionist to greet guests, mail and printing services, Wi-Fi, meeting rooms equipped with the latest technology, kitchenette and washrooms, are just some amenities to look forward to in coworking spaces.

More than just a physical space, coworking spaces are created for the coworking community in mind to suit the needs of the members in the space. The floor plans of coworking spaces are designed to promote collaboration, with lounge areas and corridors meant to enhance the connections and interactions of the members within. Having a community of like-minded individuals working in the same space also helps to solve the problem of isolation that many freelancers experience while working at home, while at the same time letting them escape the distractions of home.
