Why freelancers are choosing co‑working spaces

 

Co-working spaces, where remote workers and companies band together to share an office space, are becoming increasingly popular.

Entrepreneurs and freelancers may seem like lone wolves, but recent trends are proving otherwise.

Co-working spaces, where remote workers and companies band together to share an office space, are becoming increasingly popular.

In fact, from recent surveys found that 66% of respondents expect to see an increase in the demand for business lounges, co-working spaces, short-term offices or drop-in centers. And it seems like these lone-wolf freelancers are at the forefront of this co-working revolution. Here’s why.

Stability. Affording a whole office space isn’t always easy for freelancers and small businesses, which is where co-working arrangements come into play.  Around 74% of our respondents also say that working in a dedicated office space in a central location ensures your company is visible to clients, which is important if you’re competing against large rivals.

 

Mobility. Co-working is a global trend. 81% of business people in India and 60% in Japan expect demand to grow in the coming year. That’s great news for freelancers, as they’re already working flexibly in an increasingly flexible world.

Opportunities. Sharing office spaces is more than just a money-saving or a social set-up. Wherever they are, co-working offices bring with them networks of exciting and varied professionals who can become a resource in themselves.

 

Balance. Being an independent worker can be a challenge personally as well as professionally. Isolation can be an issue for freelancers, particularly for those who work from home.

Being in an office environment with a kitchen space, where everyone can chat over tea and coffee, can make a surprisingly big difference.
