If you’ve been working from home for the past year or two and you’re itching to find a better alternative to working out of your bedroom, then you’ll love coworking spaces! Coworking has been taking off over the years but as more people transition back to the office, they are learning that coworking spaces are an even better alternative to the workplace of old. Here are 5 reasons why we love coworking spaces and we’re confident that you will too.
1. Network With Other Business Professionals
One of the biggest benefits of working in a coworking space is the opportunity to brush elbows with other business professionals across a wide range of industries. This is particularly advantageous if you are looking for opportunities to collaborate with other businesses either through subcontracting work, passing along referrals, or even by forming a client-service provider relationship with another member of The Coop! The possibilities are endless when you transition from WFH to coworking.
2. Quiet Office Space with All the Amenities You’ll Need
Another benefit of working in a coworking space is that it offers a quiet, professional space to get work done. At The Coop, we offer all of the amenities that you’ll need to be successful at your work: reliable Wi-Fi, FAX/Printers/Scanners, office or desk space, phone booths, conference rooms, and of course all the locally roasted coffee you can drink. When you transition from WFH to coworking, you’ll save yourself the time and money that it takes to stock your home office with the added benefit of a professional conference room where you can meet with clients without inviting them into your home.
3. Affordable Memberships – Perfect for Freelancers and Side Hustles
Unlike traditional office spaces that require multi-year leases, a coworking membership is an affordable and flexible option for anyone just starting out as a freelancer or launching their side hustle. When you need a consistent, quiet, and professional office space while flying light until your business really takes off, a coworking space is the best solution. Not to mention, your business will have a professional business address so you’ll never need to post your home address on the internet for anyone to see!
4. Conference and Meeting Rooms When You Need Them
Want to WOW prospective clients? Book your meetings in one of several conference rooms at The Coop’s coworking locations. We offer conference rooms that range from smaller meeting rooms that seat 4-5 people to multiple boardrooms that are fully stocked with water, coffee, and snacks to get you through the meeting. Meeting with prospective clients at coffee shops will be a thing of the past.
5. The Flexibility of Choosing When and Where You Work
Finally, coworking spaces are a flexible solution for working that allows you to bounce between WFH and coming into the office when you need it. We offer flexible membership that allows you to use the open desk area as needed or you can put down more permanent roots with a dedicated desk or private office. We also offer day passes, which are great for professionals who just need a temporary place to work.
