From improving your creativity to enabling you to expand your network, here are the top 4 benefits of working from coworking spaces!
As compared to a traditional office setting, one of the most exciting aspects of working at a coworking space is its community of like-minded entrepreneurs, freelancers, and companies. Surrounding yourself with people from different industries and backgrounds helps you forge new connections and creates new opportunities as well. Some spaces like LEVEL3 even curates its members, which helps create even greater synergy and collaboration potential.
In line with the previous point, coworking spaces don’t just function as a working space– they are where networking and learning take place as well. Most spaces organise workshops, talks, and events where participants can learn about everything from marketing to how to make an app. Many of these events are open to the public too, so you don’t have to be a member at the space to attend.

Flexibility and autonomy are key elements that contribute to job satisfaction, and many millennials are turned off by rigid corporate structures. For entrepreneurs and freelancers, having the freedom to work wherever and whenever they want is one of the advantages of being self-employed. And with many coworking spaces granting members 24hr access, they can easily adjust their work schedule to suit their personal commitments and last-minute appointments.
In a global survey by Deskmag, it was found that working at a coworking space made workers more creative and better at their work. 71% of participants reported a boost in creativity since joining a coworking space and 62% found an improvement in the standard of work. In addition, another research found that 64% of respondents were better able to complete tasks on time and 68% were able to focus better, as reported by The Huffington Post. This suggests that coworking spaces are conducive environments that enable people to work more effectively.
