Why do freelancers, telecommuters, and other independent professionals find success in coworking spaces, which are described as membership-based workplaces where different groups of professionals work together in a shared, communal setting? What about the more conventional workplaces; are there any lessons to be learned there?
Individuals who work in shared offices believe their work is important.
Most co-workers have said that the freedom to be themselves at work was more important to them than the nature of the work itself. Freelancers, for example, may pick and choose whatever projects they work on. There are a couple of methods in which they can accomplish this.
First, in contrast to the typical workplace, members of coworking spaces tend to work on a wide range of businesses, ventures, and other projects. They don’t feel the need to put on a mask at work since there is little cutthroat rivalry or office politics. Having the opportunity to interact with people from a variety of backgrounds and professions may also help strengthen one’s own sense of identity in the workplace.
Coworkers have more control over their work.
Most shared office spaces may be accessed at any time. They can work long hours if they need to meet a deadline or demonstrate progress, or they might use their lunch break to hit the gym. They have the option of working in a quiet area where they may concentrate or in a communal area with shared tables where conversation is encouraged.
More and more businesses are recognizing the benefits of allowing employees to work remotely, and coworking spaces are stepping in to satisfy this need. They have the appearance of an office but none of the rules or regulations. In contrast to the solitude of working from home, coworking provides social possibilities, networking potential, and general human connection. As discussed in the points above, coworking has several great features that allows for a “best of both worlds” experience in which the coworker enjoys the experience of working independent of any influence along with experiencing an office-like enviornment.
