In recent decades, we have increasingly heard about coworking offices. Every European city now has its own solutions as an offer for this innovative form of workspace.
Technology has greatly contributed to reducing space requirements, today our office can be a coffee table, a train seat or even a beach. We are all interconnected and the way we work has also changed drastically when compared with what happened 30 years ago.
Working around Europe or traveling the world, thanks to coworking spaces
More and more companies and entrepreneurs respectively decide to structure their business dynamically and without too many geographical constraints. By now the concept of the classic office full of paperwork and with the distracted employee sitting at his desk waiting for the week on Friday evening risks becoming history, at least for those companies that choose an innovative approach to the way of working.
More and more companies are sensitizing their collaborators to self-discipline by encouraging them to do smart working. The huge traditional offices are increasingly obsolete.
There are also established companies that have decided to focus almost entirely on teleworking. In this case, the option of coworking or office in a business center can be a winner as a head office but also as a detached office of a large company, playing a fundamental role in optimizing time and costs, thanks to coworking solutions. .
Why do coworking work?
The great success of coworking is also due to the continuous development of technology, which now makes it possible and efficient to work from different parts of the world in a simple and profitable way.
An increasing number of external collaborators offer remote consultancy to other companies. This makes the coworking solution particularly efficient, allowing the freelancer or start-up to have a comfortable and dynamic working space at their disposal without having to bear the typical costs that must be incurred by renting a classic office.
Furthermore, thanks to coworking, new collaborations and projects are born, thus exploiting the advantages of an office that hosts professionals belonging to different economic branches, usually independent of each other.
The trend of the working world, the turning point of 2020 following COVID-19
I believe COVID-19 will drastically change the concept we have of the work environment, what was once seen as a standard could become history.
With the new coronavirus pandemic, most nations have adopted provisions to stem by imposing the closure of many economic activities and encouraging smart working.
I am confident that many companies will be able to perceive the countless benefits of this approach and will be convinced that this is the solution of the future. In this context, coworking spaces can gain ground and hopefully companies will be more tempted to want to structure their business on a network of small offices distributed throughout the country and also abroad.
The advantages of coworking and why they are a smart choice
Coworking spaces offer countless advantages, first of all they allow you to distribute the workforce, whether they are external collaborators, whether they are employees over a wider geographical area.
