Ways Coworking Can Boost Your Business

Want to hear some cool statistics?

  • 64% of coworkers are better able to complete tasks on time
  • 68% said they were able to focus better while coworking
  • 91% have better interactions with others after coworking
  • 90% said they felt more confident when coworking
  • 50% report higher incomes

Pretty neat, huh? There are so many positive influences on people who decide to cowork, it’s no wonder they’re so successful! Check out the top reasons why we believe this to be true.

People Who Use Coworking Spaces…

1.  See Their Work as Meaningful

People who use coworking spaces see their work as meaningful for several reasons. Coworking spaces consist of members who work for a range of different companies, ventures, and projects. This means that the people who make up coworking spaces are all distinct from one another, which boosts individuality and can create a stronger work identity. This strong sense of pride in one’s work can lead to greater motivation resulting in increased productivity. Coworking members also find meaning in their work because of their environment. The coworking space becomes a community where people can collaborate and learn from one another. And as the cherry on top, unlike traditional offices, there is little direct competition or internal politics.

2.  Have More Job Control

Coworking members have more job control – they can set their own schedule, access their office 24/7, and decide when they come in and when they leave each day. If there are upcoming deadlines that need to be met, members have the freedom to come in early and put in a long day. On the other hand, they can take a long mid-day break and hit the gym! While having autonomy can be good, structure and discipline is necessary for a successful career. Working in a community allows coworkers to create this structure.

3.  Save Time and Money

Entrepreneurs and businesses founders are very busy people. As their company grows, responsibilities and deadlines increase. Coworking minimizes unwanted work and day-to-day office management. No time is spent on things like buying furniture and outfitting the office as coworking spaces (as well as their private offices) come fully-furnished. Members see their coworking space as valuable cost saving since they are only receiving one bill with everything included in it, such as utilities, internet, office supplies, etc.

4.  Experience Increased Creativity and Productivity

Coworking members feel connected to a large community of different individuals. This sense of community gives members the opportunity to engage with one another, network, and even set up new partnerships. Coworking members can experience real exponential growth in their businesses with the addition of these new connections. Coworking eliminates the ability to easily shy away from responsibilities since members are not distracted by things at home (like walking the dog or turning on the TV). Productivity is boosted in people who cowork simply because they are surrounded by committed, enthusiastic workers… this is highly motivating! Collaborating, connecting, and brainstorming go hand-in-hand with coworking.

    Coworking Meets Luxury in the West Loop

    I don’t know about you, but often times my environment dictates my productivity. When I try to power through work at home I find myself taking breaks to do laundry or grab a snack from the fridge, wander to bed and need a nap, or the dreaded “I can get this done while watching The Real Housewives.” And while I’ve looked into coworking spaces to get my blogging done none ever fit my needs. They felt too informal, had kitchens I could wander in to for beer and coffee and get distracted talking to ...  Read More...
