[bctt tweet=”Coworking spaces have become a staple across numerous cities and are showing no signs of slowing down. ” username=”allwork_space”]
Major operators are continuously finding the next big way to set themselves apart from the growing competition. For example, WeWork just announced it has plans to take over a 21-story building in Singapore in 2021 in addition to its current 11 locations in the country.
IWG-owned coworking firm Spaces also has also expanded its footprint in Singapore with three new locations.
“More companies are realising the intangible benefits that coworking spaces bring, including the ability to attract and retain top talent, support better work-life balance, and reduce the amount of stress associated with lengthy commutes,” said Margot van der Poel, Spaces’ brand manager for Middle East and Asia Pacific.
A recent survey from IWG found that 83% of people would choose a job that had flexible working over one that did not.
Now, coworking operators are evolving their spaces to go beyond the traditional startup-centric atmosphere in order to attract their target audience.
For example, Trehaus offers on-site nursery and childcare services in order to cater to working parents and offer them a better work-life balance.
Regardless of the needs of specific professionals, coworking spaces of all shapes and sizes help fuel collaboration and networking opportunities more than ever.
