Top 5 Benefits of Coworking

From saving upfront costs to facilities not included in a traditional lease, coworking offices provide a range of benefits to make your search for a new office easier than ever.

Inspiration and Collaboration

One of the main benefits of coworking spaces is that they provide an opportunity for independent workers to draw upon each other’s skill sets. Instead of being pigeonholed by your distinct company or position, you can meet and collaborate with people outside of your industry. And with many spaces offering networking events, you have a built-in way to broaden your connections. In this environment, the best ideas take flight.

Collaboration

Flexibility

Coworking spaces are flexible in more ways than one. You’re able to choose from a variety of membership options, locations, and workspaces. Many spaces are even open around the clock. The leasing terms are flexible, too — you can scale up or down whenever you need to.

Productivity

There are heaps of statistics out there about how coworking increases productivity. In a recent study, 84% of the 700 coworkers surveyed reported feeling more engaged and motivated when they’re in a coworking space, and 89% reported being happier.

Low Costs

Compared to the exorbitant costs of renting out an office building, coworking is a very cheap option. Moreover, occasionally renting out a coworking space is considered a tax-deductible expense as long as it’s solely for the purpose of your business.

Amenities

At coworking spaces, the amenities are extensive. The perks offered in the vast majority of spaces include:

  • Wi-Fi and ethernet connection
  • Fully-furnished workstations
  • Networking and other events
  • Printing
  • Parking
  • Kitchen facilities
  • Meeting and conference rooms
  • Coffee and tea

Some spaces offer additional specialized amenities such as:

  • Virtual services
  • Snacks
  • Beer
  • A concierge service
  • Bike racks
  • Yoga classes
  • Wellness stations
  • Outdoor spaces
  • Pet-friendly settings
  • Child care
  • Showers
