Despite WeWork’s struggle to reach the IPO finish line, the coworking industry has grown beyond anything WeWork could have imagined.
Coworking space square footage has more than doubled to 80 million in the U.S. since 2015. Despite that growth slowing over the past few months, the sector is still on track for a 10% growth this year, mostly driven by new coworking operators.
Coworking has woven its way into the fabric of the workforce as more organizations utilize virtual and remote teams. They also meet the growing demand from younger generations who want to work in a collaborative, creative space.
With a huge variety of niche and traditional coworking spaces on the market today, what should entrepreneurs, freelancers and remote workers look for when it comes to choosing the right workplace?
Finding the proper community that aligns with your values can help you flourish and reach your best potential when working. Additionally, understanding the model of the office space can keep you from being blindsided when the coworking firm runs into trouble. Finally, make a note of other resources the office offers other than a desk of office in order to get the most out of your coworking experience.
