In January of this year, a spokesperson for Anarock Property Consultant said that coworking spaces in India could potentially double or triple if the growth rate of these workspaces were maintained.
But with work culture and society as a whole having undergone major changes over the past few months, companies may be apprehensive of using offices for the time being. However, analysts still predict that this could mean good news for the coworking industry if it makes the necessary changes.
Although remote working has its own pros, in time its cons tend to take over, such as unreliable home technology, limited home office space, uncommunicative team members, and mental health issues that can come with juggling home and work responsibilities.
Finding a balance between working from home and in the office can help address these challenges, but layouts will look much different as we enter the age of physical distancing. That is why coworking is the perfect solution to this transition as it offers a safe, flexible and cost effective workplace.
Many organizations have already opted to move a portion of their workforce to coworking spaces in order to de-densify their offices.
Coworking operators have also started to transform their offices by implementing distanced workstations, consistent sanitation practices, as well as touchless technology to further keep occupants safe.
