There’s a special vibe found in the coworking space that blends productivity with networking. A study by the Harvard Business Review found that on a scale out of 7, people using coworking spaces ranked an average score of 6 in terms of their productivity in the workplace - that’s one point higher than the conventional office environment.

The Financial Times recently published an article championing, “if coworking is the future, big businesses want a piece of it.” An idea dominating the theory of business culture in the 21st century is that STEAM is favoured over STEM. This basically means in order to inspire creativity and cover all bases of potential growth in the business world, people from Arts backgrounds should join those from Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths sectors.
The vision of coworking hubs sees memberships of businesses to their spaces result in the establishment of a business community. It’s a membership which buys more than just the use of space, it provides businesses with a sense of belonging, the resources they need to grow and creates a thriving, productive space bursting with creativity and innovation.
So, here’s our seven reasons why we think you should give coworking a try:
1) Expand your professional network
Working in a coworking space is one of the best ways for you to immerse yourself with like-minded professionals, entrepreneurs and innovators. By taking advantage of the energetic environment and inclusive community events, you can take your professional networking to a whole new level.
Being surrounded by creative and ambitious professionals can provide you with a wealth of opportunities. Skill sharing and collaboration are the foundations of coworking spaces and enable you to showcase your skills and share your expertise with your fellow coworkers.
3) Productivity + Creativity = Growth
Redefining the traditional office space, coworking spaces work to create an energetic environment that can fully unleash your full potential.
4) Sense of community
As a member of a coworking space, you’re very quickly welcomed into the strong community that embraces workers from a multitude of industries. Collaboration in the workplace is key for providing sustainability, education, development and adaptability in our rapidly changing professional climate.
Having access to a team of seasoned professionals willing to share their insights and experiences gives budding ideas the guidance they need to flourish and become successful business ventures.
6) Have greater control over how and when you work
As a member of a coworking space, you have the ability to come and go as you please. Night owls and early birds alike can utilise the space to best suit their lifestyles and ensure a healthy work-life-balance.
7) Be more fulfilled by your work
The freedom to immerse yourself in a project, idea, startup or business that not only lines the pocket, but guarantees personal fulfilment.
