Coworking spaces have been left vacant and demand has fallen as people opt to work from home in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. This has left operators to create new strategies in order to boost their business, while keeping staff and members safe and healthy.
Once lockdowns have been lifted, people will be more inclined to work out of a coworking space that is regularly cleaned and sanitized, and encourages physical distancing.
Coworking operators will also need to offer members better deals in order to bring them back into the space. This could include improved facilities and a rent relaxation clause within their agreements in order to build confidence with clients.
Although coworking spaces are seeing a downturn in usage, this dip in business will likely be short-term. In a post-pandemic world, companies large and small will be more willing to rent out a workspace that provides flexible arrangements, short-term leases and offers amenities to help cut down on costs.
