One of the most recent trends in workplace environments are co working spaces. The ability to work in an office space out of the house with the flexibility of being around other like-minded people is becoming more and more appealing to this era of entrepreneurs.
Whether you’re a small start up company or a large regional business, we think co working spaces are the perfect fit for anyone. Here are 5 benefits of co working and why we think you should trade in your coffee shop work space for co working.
1. Flexible Work space
One of the best ways to increase productivity is to make sure you are staying active in your daily life. Why should your business and work space be any different? Having an open, flexible work space with multiple areas to work allows you to move around as you please, setting you up to be the most productive you can in your workday. Co working allows you to be where you need, when you need it.
2. Networking Opportunities
Every entrepreneur knows that networking is critical to the growth of a business, but sometimes it can be difficult to find those networking opportunities. Working in a co working space give s you the ability to network with people within you industry, and those who aren’t but could provide a different outlook, right there in your daily work space.
3. Cost Friendly Work space
For smaller companies, the cost of a permanent private office space isn’t in the budget. That doesn’t mean you can’t have a dedicated work space which isn’t in your home or a coffee shop. Working in co working gives you the ability to have a dedicated work space that fits your budget. At TCC Canada, our co working clients can rent meeting rooms and offices when they need, at an insider rate. This gives you the space you need, at the price you can afford, regardless of the size of your company.
One of the best things you can do is surround yourself with like-minded people. We like the saying “If you’re the smartest person in the room, you’re in the wrong room”. Surrounding yourself with dedicated and hard-working people can be a huge motivator and help you push yourself to your best.
5. Leave Work at Work
Maintaining a balance between work and personal life is very important. Having a space you go to each day to get work done allows you to leave your work at work. Keeping your work and personal life balanced can lead to a clear head space and better productivity in the work space.
