Co-working is growing
According to Statista, the number of co-working spaces worldwide has hit a whopping 26,300 as of December 31 2019! So what does this tell us about co-working?
More business owners are realising that co-working environments give them the freedom to run their businesses unrestrained by traditional business format. Here are a few benefits that small businesses and sole traders alike have cottoned onto, that are helping transform the way they operate.
A separate location
You start the day ready to go, fresh coffee in hand, and in the comfort of your jimjams. With a crack of the knuckles, you get to typing your first intro paragraph of a pitch, when all of a sudden...The cats dragged in a dead rat. The washing cycle has just finished. Maybe you fancy another snack. The neighbour is mowing his lawn outside your window...You know what I’m talking about right? The distractions of working from home can be endless.
With Co-working, small business owners or those working for a range of different companies can now separate work from home. Having a fresh and professional working environment to inspire and really get into their work without distractions, is a major benefit of renting a space. For management, having an office space in a different location from their business means fewer interruptions from the on-the-ground day-to-day running of the business so that they can hone in on business strategy, marketing, and their key events. James Clear wrote about this in his best-selling book 'Atomic Habits', citing "Life is a game and if you want to guarantee better results over a sustained period of time, the best approach is to play the game in an environment that favors you. Winners often win because their environment makes winning easier." The environment at WonderHub is geared towards helping you achieve your business goals, and it removes the distractions and barriers holding you back from achieving optimal performance.
Co-working is built on community, it is community-driven at the core – think of it as the glue that holds it all together. As there are no strict categories of what kinds of businesses may come onboard, these spaces are able to house a diverse range of organisations to connect with. This creative and dynamic community, with like-minded and passionate entrepreneurs all situated in the same place, opens up possibilities for partnerships, the new business created through word of mouth, and opportunity to spark grand ideas that they’d otherwise never come up with! This amalgamation of people is a community of connectivity.
With many investors jumping on the bandwagon to refurbish buildings to house these communities, those looking for that key environment, have many options laid before them. At WonderHub, we have:
