The concept of coworking spaces has revolutionized the work culture all over the world and India is no exception. Since this phenomenon is seriously challenging the traditional workspace, people have started to dig deeper into the factors causing this evolution. Various researches and surveys suggest that the ‘coworking movement’ is slowly replacing the traditional company culture. A latest survey revealed that 77% of employees are happy in their coworking space. We delve deeper into the reasons why employees feel more productive working in a coworking space and how you can use these factors to your company’s advantage:
1. Flexible work environment
Flexibility is one of the biggest reasons why the coworking model has become so successful globally. From working at hours that suit you to working in an environment of your choice, the options are plenty at any coworking space. At 91springboard, you have 24X7 access to our coworking spaces with everything you need to get your work done – workstations, private cabins, high-speed WiFi, conference rooms, gaming, chill zone and more. You name it, we’ve got it!
Apart from being a highly cost-effective option as compared to having a traditional office space, coworking spaces are designed to be flexible so every business’ need is fulfilled.
2. Collaborative work culture
There’s no such thing as ‘all work and no play’ at coworking spaces. By design itself, coworking spaces promote collaboration and engagement with the people around. When people from various walks of life, engage with each other, it doesn’t just create a fun work environment but also inspires your employees to think from different perspectives. Coworking spaces around the world have become the ideal workplace for the millennial workforce. More and more people choose to work in a coworking environment instead of a traditional office, largely because of the work culture that exists there.
3. Boosts creativity
Research suggests that coworking spaces can drastically improve an employee’s satisfaction levels thereby leading them to seek more inspiration and motivation from their surroundings. One of the reasons why people choose to work in a coworking space is because these spaces are filled with people from diverse backgrounds. Interacting with such a diverse group can spark ideas and boost your employee’s creativity. More and more companies are moving their design, marketing and research teams to coworking spaces where collaboration, innovation and creativity are a way of life.
4. Potential for networking
Instead of dreading their solitary desk, teams working out of shared office spaces look forward to connecting and collaborating with a diverse group of people. Coworking spaces like ours give you access to a versatile group of business connections, creative artists and self-starters which means there’s plenty of opportunities to meet your new client or a potential team member. Studies show that humans thrive on social interactions. The need for making meaningful connections is as powerful as our need for food, clothing and shelter. Coworking spaces are the perfect solution to engage in more meaningful interactions and build long-lasting connections.
5. Strong sense of community
Humans are wired for connections. Coworking spaces fulfill that need and that is one of the factors behind the global success of the coworking model. At 91springboard, we believe in creating coworking spaces that feel more like a close-knit community. It’s more than just a place where you go to work. This creates a sense of belonging in the employees and inspires them to do contribute to your business in meaningful ways.
These are some of the many reasons why employees tend to experience higher levels of satisfaction working in a shared space as compared to working remotely or in a traditional office space. When your employees feel more productive, happier and connected, they identify even more strongly with their work, purpose, and the overall organizational values.
As a business leader, it is imperative that you understand your employee’s needs and do what you can to help them grow. Coworking spaces like 91 Springboard offer you all the amenities of a traditional workspace along with additional amenities like employee engagement activities, business boosters for members and a work culture that will be nothing but beneficial for you and your employees.
