What makes people want to cowork?
Coworking spaces are changing the way that small businesses and remote workers perform their job duties. More and more often, people are starting to explore coworking spaces as options for their 9 to 5 jobs.
But why do people cowork? What makes it such an attractive option for entrepreneurs and remote workers?
According to data from Statista, people rank these as the top reasons for working out of a coworking space:
A social and enjoyable atmosphere
Interaction with others
A close distance to home
Good transport connections nearby
Good value for money
Basic office infastructure
A big open workspace
“Most people, a whopping 59%, said that they wanted to tap into the “social and enjoyable atmosphere” coworking spaces offer. Following closely behind that, many people agreed that “interacting with others” (56%) and having “a community” are important to them.”
According to the report, the coworking industry has taken the world by storm. In 2005, there were only 3 coworking spaces in the entire world. And as of 2017, that number had skyrocketed to a staggering 15,000 and that number is only slated to grow.
