When working from home, many imagine sitting in the comfort of their makeshift office space, surrounded by familiarity. However, remote workers are increasingly leaving the confines of their home — but that doesn’t mean they’re returning to the office.
So where are they going?
The need for new scenery that isn’t coffee shop-level distracting is pushing workers to flexible, fully-equipped environments: coworking spaces.
Sometimes referred to as a “third workspace,” remote workers are trying to find the best of both worlds in their workplace, without the long commutes.
This has led some coworking operators to open spaces within residential units, giving employees the opportunity to “work near home.” By doing so, professionals have the freedom to move between their home and workspace, adjusting their environment based on their needs at any given time.
Coworking spaces are seeing newfound demand from today’s workforce, where professionals aren’t restricted by the walls of traditional offices but simultaneously desire professionalism and camaraderie.
