Coworking Space Benefits Over Home Office

Coworking Space Benefits Over Home Office

Coworking spaces are on the rise, and with the pandemic still, very much in existence, many corporate employees, small business owners, start-ups, and freelancers are choosing to remain working remotely within a coworking or home office scenario.

Many workers feel their productivity has increased with the added independence and flexibility provided by a home office or coworking environment. Both options offer benefits compared to traditional employment models, leading many companies to jump on the bandwagon, realizing lower overheads and other cost-saving possibilities. 

Some professionals may have overcome obvious home office pitfalls, while others have discovered the substantial advantages that working within a serviced coworking environment offers.

Drawbacks of the Home Office

Having a private and dedicated space for an office in the home is not a situation available to everyone. Studies indicate that while the added independence and flexibility of working remotely leads to more productivity and overall employee satisfaction, there are definite drawbacks to home office environments that can drop productivity and increase stress. These can include:

  1. Lack of privacy due to distractions from young children, family pets, and even environmental noise.

  2. Lack of distinction or blurring between work and personal life.
  3. Discipline and focus are required to work from home successfully, and without these two attributes, we can fall prey to procrastination and poor time management.
  4. Lack of in-person contact with colleagues can lead to feelings of isolation and disconnectedness. Virtual meetings, initiated by necessity from pandemic restrictions and now an accepted part of the new corporate landscape, cannot fully replace the energy of meeting face to face, especially with clients and new customers.
  5. Issues with technology and access to support can cause deadline delays.

Advantages of a Coworking Office

As more independent, serviced office spaces become available, employees and small business owners discover the advantages of being a part of a professional coworking environment. 

No Overhead and Cost-Effective

Financial considerations weigh heavily on small businesses. Coworking environments offer the perfect blend of professional services, amenities, and workspaces, including private offices, with flexible payment options at a fraction of what traditional leases cost, ideal for start-ups, corporate travelers, and freelancers.

Privacy When Needed

When more isolation for special and sensitive projects is required, most coworking office solutions are equipped with separate offices available for temporary usage, such as those at Fusion Workplaces Palm Springs. Meeting rooms are also available and handy for meeting with clients and collaborating with other colleagues.

Networking Opportunities

Perhaps one of the best advantages of working in a coworking environment is networking within a diverse community of entrepreneurs and like-minded professionals.

Professional Amenities

Coworking office spaces ensure that the most reliable technology and administrative support are available when and as needed. In addition, coworking spaces provide a professional address and contact, which adds to the legitimacy of a business. Compare this with sharing your home address with your business clients, which may reflect less than favorably on your business.

Working remotely is the wave of the future and an excellent option for those who benefit from added flexibility and autonomy. Fusion Workspaces Palm Springs enables professionals to work productively within a supportive, vibrant, and respectful community while offering private office spaces and meeting rooms as required.
