Research has found that there are pros and cons to working from home and working in an office, so how can companies find a balance between the two without sacrificing benefits?
One way is to incorporate a shared workspace within apartment complexes, which would help those who want to work outside of their homes, continue to enjoy a lack of commute and support their local neighborhood.
Doing so ensures that remote workers can have more social interaction and stay away from the distractions of home.
A survey from Colliers found that 77% of those working from home do not have a dedicated space, which can make being productive a struggle.
That is why adding these workspaces within workers’ neighborhoods is the ideal choice as it equips them with tools necessary for every day work life, such as reliable internet connection, printers, and comfortable work stations.
Working from home has been found to leave workers feeling isolated and lonely, leading to a decline in mental health. So having a local coworking space to come into not only helps people work more efficiently, but it can greatly improve their wellbeing and give them more opportunities for socialization.
Apartment coworking could likely see even more demand than traditional offices as most have other amenities such as fitness facilities, pools and entertainment areas.
