Achieving a work-life balance has been a goal for nearly all professionals. Now, as the past year has completely altered the world’s perception of what makes a good workplace, companies are looking for the perfect workplace solution that balances both work culture and individual needs.
One way of achieving this is by transforming community spaces to workplaces during times when they are underutilized.
For instance, Salesforce consulting and application development company Traction on Demand believes in inviting smaller businesses into “shops” to collaborate, create a stronger sense of community and bring in more revenue for struggling industries.
Certain spaces are facing financial challenges at the moment, and Traction on Demand plans to subsidize a part of the rent for partners in exchange for space usage. By doing this, small businesses can help boost income for the space itself, while also offering these companies a hybrid work solution for employees.
Traction on Demand is focusing on setting up shops in spaces with clusters of 100 or more workers and are within walking or biking distance.
These alternative workspaces are a great option for companies that are adopting hybrid arrangements and want to provide an office that is close to where employees live.
