Should You Move Your Office to a Co-Working Space?

By Skyler Benson | March 11, 2019

Co-working spaces are more inviting than standard office spaces are. The co-working spaces have a more relaxed atmosphere and a level of energy that usual stuffy offices do not have. Most people who have made a move from a traditional office into a co-working space say that they are capable of getting more work accomplished because the energy level in the co-working space inspires them to do more.

If you are trying to decide whether you should remain in the office you already occupy or move to a co-working space there are a few things you can consider that will help with your decision.

Advantages of a co-worker space

  • Lower overhead costs, so co-workers spaces are perfect if you are a small business, a freelancer or just starting up in business

  • Co-worker spaces create a feeling of community and help you not to feel isolated or alone

  • Co-worker spaces may help you to connect to other like-minded individuals and even help you find business contacts and resources

  • Freedom and mobility because the co-worker spaces do not have office managers that create rules and regulations for all occupants to follow

  • Take the hassle out of setting up an office space, so co-working spaces reduce the stress associated with developing an office space.

  • You are not locked into a long-term lease like you would have if you were establishing a private office

The bad points about a co-working space

  • Building your brand and greeting customers in your office may be more difficult in a co-working office than it would be in a dedicated office

  • If you are used to working from your home, the co-working space may increase your overhead cost

  • Co-working spaces are relaxed and encourage sharing and social engagement and if you are a person that gets distracted by social interaction then co-working spaces might cause you to be less productive

  • Sometimes the level of drama in a co-working space is greater than it would be in a private office setting because there are no office managers and fewer office regulations for the inhabitants to follow

Getting Help moving into a co-working space
