May 3, 2018
Shared Work Spaces
More companies are embracing the idea of shared work spaces and “coworking,” so let’s look at this growing trend and see how it can help your business.
What’s a Shared Meeting Space?
A shared meeting space is a room or place where people can go and work individually, but with the benefit of other people being around to talk to or exchange ideas. It can make for a very creative environment, which is why so many companies are moving toward this new workplace model.
Coworking involves sharing a work space while working individually on different things. In recent years, it has become a growing trend in the United States as well as Asia and Europe.
What Types of Companies Could Benefit From Coworking?
- Small businesses that rely on maintaining a low overhead
- Creative enterprises that want the benefits of exposure to many people with various skills
- Individuals that work from home
These businesses and individuals are coworking for many reasons. The small startup uses coworking and shared meeting spaces to keep overhead costs down, while creative businesses encourage collaboration among different skill sets. Individuals working from their homes may occasionally go to a shared meeting space for some personal interaction while working.
