Wondering about the benefits of co-working? With an emphasis on flexibility and a strong sense of community, we explore the value of this new way of working that so many individuals and businesses have adopted.
The Covid-19 pandemic has led to business professionals taking on a new way of working. With physical limitations in attending the office, home working became the new norm for an extended period of time. However, even when restrictions were eased and some returned to the office, many chose not to, meaning companies had to introduce a ‘flex office’ as the new viable option. Co-working spaces provided the best solution for companies and individuals that wanted a functional work environment outside the home, but also the flexibility of having a reliable, professional workspace without the need to commute to an office.
So what are the benefits compared to home working? No home distractions, a meaning and a purpose to your day, the opportunity to be around other professionals, flexible working, no long term contracts, affordable/cost saving, convenient, central hub to meet, collaborate and work from and let’s not forget the unlimited free tea and coffee. Co-working can provide structure to your day and help you achieve your desired work-life balance.
Research suggests ‘that the combination of a well-designed work environment and well-curated work experience are part of the reason people who co-work demonstrate higher levels of thriving than their office or home-based colleagues’
With the wide range of flexibility that co-working offers there’s a lot to say about working from the co-working hub at 1 Cardale Park with access to our shared kitchens and facilities, lounges and breakout spaces.
