With all the hype surrounding coworking spaces, we’ve decided to give you a primer. They cover the basics of coworking as well as the consequences for conventional workplace and facility managers.
WHAT ARE COWORKING SPACES?
Step into a coworking space and you will immediately notice that it feels different from a regular workplace. The smell of fresh coffee in the air is second only to the electrical aura that enthusiastic and excited occupants bring to space. You’ll see a combination of deep-focused people at private desks, and others catch up with lively discussions at large community tables.This is the culture of the coworking space.
Coworking spaces are simply shared workspaces. They offer affordable office space for those looking to escape the loneliness of their home office or coffee shop.
Such collaborative workspaces provide a suite of office-like facilities such as hot desks, private meeting rooms, kitchens, coffee and more. We also deliver a family as well. Occupants are typically freelancers, entrepreneurs, start-ups and small teams who want to take advantage of a flexible space.
Besides language, the price is another big draw. One of the benefits of these spaces is the opportunity to lease out only what you need from an entire private office space, which can be expensive. Costs vary and allow flexibility across various membership-based models. These include plans for regular and monthly charges. The cost of membership also varies based on whether you use a shared desk

WHO USES COWORKING SPACES?
THE USUAL SUSPECTS
Co-working spaces offer the best of both worlds for freelancers: the freedom to choose your own hours and schedule without isolation.
Such shared spaces are great for freelancers. A sense of community is developed for those who would otherwise be forced to work alone at home or in a coffee shop.
Start-ups appreciate the versatility of coworking spaces. Coworking spaces do not come with the high costs and responsibilities of traditional office leases. These also give small teams the chance to interact with others in space. Such spaces may even enable entrepreneurs to find a co-founderfor their start-up by linking the right people at the right time.
THE CONCEPT IS WORKING WELL
Coworking spaces are a great fit for small organizations of this kind. There is an intrinsic correlation between what spaces provide and the ambitions of freelancers and start-ups.
