Coworking spaces have gained immense popularity in recent years as they allow both groups & individuals to control their surroundings in a workplace. This allows the workspace to become alive with the immense energy of the professionals operating from the coworking space. Coworking spaces are usually curated as per the culture and the free-flowing atmosphere, which is ensured to suit a variety of work mode options.
There has been a considerable increase in the number of independent workers and self-employed professionals in India in the recent years. There has also been a major rise in telecommuting that is facilitating more and more people to work independently from remote locations. This leads to a lot of people working from their residences, coffee shops etc, which eventually results in loneliness & lack of motivation. Humans are social beings and thus they benefit from working with other people as they are able to socialize & learn a lot of new things.
Around a decade back, few independent and self-employed workers started working from other people’s homes in order to get over the issue of isolation. This eventually become popular and the idea of hiring a space and the initiative of growing a community of independent workers started. This particular unique way of working is newly termed as “coworking”. This is indeed deemed to be different than the traditional meaning of “co-working”. Many dictionaries tend to correct the newer “coworking” to “co-working”. The result is that both of these spellings are literally used to mean the same thing. However, the context is more crucial than the meaning.
