Co-working space is the newest trend in the business real estate. The concept of sharing an office share with a complete stranger became a fad and the number of going for this new concept is fast growing. It is not a surprise though since it presents a number of benefits to the renters. For one, the cost of renting a co-working space is less than purchasing your own office.
Another advantage is the flexibility. Unlike traditional renting space, you are not chained by terms and agreements. You can go for as long (or as short) as you like without a cent of worry. There is also a study conducted that employees who are in co-working spaces thrive better than those who are in a traditional office set-up. And these professionals find the set up ideal for them:
If you are a writer trying to finish a book or beating a deadline then working on a co-working space can do wonders for you. You can have the space and quiet that you need to help you focus on your writing. If you need some ideas, you can consult your nearby “neighbor” and asked for their thoughts. Most co-working spaces in Dubai have great interiors and this might inspire you to churn out creative ideas for your book or writeup.
- Business owners
A lot of business owners are taking advantage of this set up to build their empire. Aside from the low cost, business owners can easily market their business to others. They can conduct their business operations and meet potential partners, clients, and employee in one space. Co-working spaces create a hub of people who works independently but shares a commonality. But if the business owner preferred a more private set up, there are serviced offices in Dubai that caters to this kind of requirement.
Consultants need a space to gather their thoughts so they can help out their clients. Working on a café or restaurant, they can do their presentations and case studies might affect their thoughts as they will be constantly bothered by endless stream of people coming in and out of the establishment. Co-working space can be a perfect set up for them as they can have the privacy they need to get their work done.
If you are a freelancer working at home, you might need to have a change of scene to get you into the work mode. Working at home have its advantages, but it can get old and you have to battle to lots of distraction like your bed, the TV, and household chores. Working in a semi-office set up can boost you work morale and you can consult with other freelancers if you need some help.
- Virtual Assistants
Virtual assistants are quite busy individuals and need their own space to help out their clients. A table at a co-working space can help them organize their files, work on their task and finish all their deliverable without being bothered by others.
