Flexible workspaces are presenting greater opportunities for those in the workforce, particularly for women. The flexible spaces have been linked to a rise in female entrepreneurship.
According to a recent article published by Property Week, the workforce has encountered a staggering year-over-year growth of 37% in all-female-led enterprises. This trend is closely tied to the rise of flexible workspaces, which have gained momentum this year — altering the traditional workplace culture and offering a new way of working that better aligns with the needs of today’s workforce.
Flexible workspaces are more than just offices; they are designed with amenities that cater to modern workforce demands and their inclusion has been found to promote collaboration and community. With various entry points for professionals, from as low as £80 per month for some flex-spaces in the U.K., they offer an affordable and scalable solution for budding businesses.
It’s also reported that local city councils, like those in London, are incorporating flexible workspaces into their strategies because more recognize the role the spaces play as natural incubators for entrepreneurs.
