Australia’s The Foundry Cowork recently conducted a survey that revealed that a large number of Erina residents have been working from home.
With this comes the struggle of balancing home and work responsibilities, while basking in the perks of not having a commute.
So how can workers experience total bliss when it comes to finding a healthy work-life balance? The solution may be a coworking space.
“A flexible working agreement is critical for those employees whose workplace has been impacted by the pandemic,” said Mel Archer, owner of The Foundry Cowork.
According to the firm’s survey, 54% of respondents have not had a discussion about remote working arrangements. Having this talk with employers will be necessary moving forward, and coworking could benefit both the company and employees.
“In many instances, employers will cover the cost of an employee using a coworking space as it gives the employer peace of mind that their employees are working from a professional and productive work environment,” said Archer.
This could lead to improved job satisfaction and decreased absenteeism, which means that employees perform better. Additionally, workers can come into a workspace and get a sense of community that is difficult to replicate virtually.
