Humans have almost always thrived when surrounded by a community. Naturally, we understand that tasks are easiest when accomplished together. Nowadays, as we are amidst a socio-economic evolution, people are reestablishing what community means within the place we spend the majority of our time — the workplace.
Working and interacting with like-minded colleagues fosters healthy social and professional experiences that births creativity. This is why workplaces that offer flexibility tend to have healthier, happier employees.
With over 1.74 million coworking members worldwide, the industry is leading the rest of the pack to create a work environment that allows employees to collaborate with people from all corners of the job force.
Amit Ramani, CEO and founder of Awfis, revealed the three Cs in shifting towards a more modern workspace culture which are: collaboration amongst startups and SMEs; commerce by using services offered by other members and vise versa; and community that connects businesses and individuals of varying ranks together in order to build a strong bond.
Ramani believes there is no doubt that the trend of community and collaboration in workplaces will continue to grow in the future.
