HOW DOES COWORKING HELP IN THIS?
Are you an independent professional or a start-up and are worried about where’s your career heading? With coworking, take charge of your own career.
Here’s how coworking helps in building your career:
Coworking promotes community building:
Coworking is when an office space is shared among people belonging to different companies and professions simultaneously. Working at a conventional office can limit your social and professional interactions only to only your colleagues. While working from home can lead to isolation and knowledge redundancy as your social interactions get reduced. On the other hand, coworking provides ample opportunities for knowledge sharing and information exchange, especially for freelancers and part-timers. At coworking spaces, you can expand your work network by meeting professionals and other freelancers from your field. They are not your colleagues and hence are not your competitors in terms of promotions and pay hikes. This reduces your hesitation and skepticism with regard to sharing work knowledge with them and vice-versa. Latest trends, finer nuances, problem-solving are some of the things you are exposed to through coworking. Some coworking spaces also conduct interactive activities like meet-ups, talks and dine-in sessions that prompt even introverts to socialize for the benefit of their career.
Coworking is conducive to productivity:
Conventional offices are generally quite stuffy, restrictive and formal with a mundane décor- conditions that make work monotonous and boring. While working from home may not always be feasible due to inadequate infrastructure and distractions at home. Your surrounding does play an important role in motivating you to work. Coworking spaces offer a pleasant and vibrant atmosphere with the proper resources and infrastructure (internet, furniture, power back-up, etc.) to stimulate your creativity and productivity. Moreover, when you see others being industrious at the coworking office, it automatically gives you too the infectious impetus to stay focused.
Coworking takes your start-up forward:
As start-ups always struggle with a tight budget, coworking is the most pocket-friendly option for setting up their business. With coworking, start-ups can conduct their offline and online business transactions at an affordable price since coworking is based on the renting model that can be fixed either on an hourly or monthly basis depending on your requirement. This allows you to effectively use your budget for marketing and advertising. You also, get to communicate with other like-minded start-up owners. Plus, with MNCs and reputed companies exploring coworking spaces for new talent and innovation, you never know your start-up may get lucky enough to get spotted by the industry’s big shots. Coworking can help your start-up to be at the right place at the right time by indirectly marketing your business at zero additional cost.
Man is and always will be a social animal and don’t forget United we stand, divided we fall. These facts hold true even for your career and are the very principles that co-working facilitates. Get started with coworking today only with the best.
