Many people dream of having the chance to work from home, but unless you have great self-discipline, it can be an incredibly distracting environment.
This may lead someone to work out of a coffee shop, which seems great in theory thanks to free Wi-Fi and, of course, coffee. Still, coffee shops come with a myriad of issues such as loud music, lack of privacy, the risk of theft and not to mention how much money it ends up amounting to by the end of the week.
That’s where coworking spaces come in. In a coworking space, members typically have 24/7 access, high-speed internet, office supplies, complimentary coffee and refreshments, private booths, collaborative areas and much more.
A study from Emergent Research found that 80% of coworking members felt happier after joining a coworking space as they have a healthier work-life balance. Most coworking spaces provide flexibility, so you are able to work when you are most productive whether that be 11 a.m. or 11 p.m.
Additionally, coworking spaces combat potential isolation that comes with remote working and provides the chance to work with other professionals from various industries. Several coworking spaces also offer host events such as panel discussions or office parties that create a strong sense of community.
Coworking spaces overall give remote workers the opportunity to work on their own time, while also connecting with like-minded people, boosting their productivity and more.
