Since 2020, many companies have switched from an in-person model to a completely remote or hybrid approach after realizing productivity remained at pre-COVID levels —no matter where each employee worked. And although many companies no longer require their employees to come into the office five days a week, that doesn’t mean remote workers have to conduct all their business from home.
Remote work may have increased, but so has the prevalence of coworking spaces. Spaces such as Endeavor give remote employees a professional and motivating place to do their job, with the same resources of a traditional workplace.
Benefits of Coworking Spaces for Remote Companies
Coworking spaces don’t just provide a host of desirable perks for remote employees — they also benefit the companies that employ these workers. Here are six ways enterprises can enjoy the benefits of coworking spaces:
1. Tap Into Team-Forward Atmosphere (Without the Expensive Overhead)
While renting an office space can foster a sense of connection and collaboration, rental and utility costs can be costly, especially for smaller companies or startups.
Coworking spaces make it possible for your employees to communicate face-to-face and bond as a team without the expensive overhead of an office. You won’t have to worry about upkeep-related details such as hiring a cleaning crew or repairs.
2. Meet With Clients In An Inviting, Professional Location
Upscale coworking spaces provide remote workers with a comfortable, clean, well-organized place to do their jobs. They’re also great places for remote employees to meet current and prospective clients or conduct new-hire interviews.
Unlike a company’s private office building, coworking spaces are also neutral ground, making for a more inviting and relaxed environment for clients and interviewees. And just like a traditional office, a modern, well-kept space will reflect positively on your company and contribute to the interaction’s success.
3. Network With Other Industry Professionals
One of the many benefits of a public coworking space is that employees from several industries are present at any given time and share resources. This energy makes these spaces an organic place to network with professionals in similar fields and make instrumental business connections.
It’s not uncommon for remote workers with similar job descriptions to meet at a coworking space and develop strong business relationships that benefit the employees’ companies in the long run.
4. Host Company Events
The benefits of coworking spaces extend past the end of the workday. Many remote companies also use these spaces for various company events, making them a versatile tool for businesses.
You can host everything from client mixers to sales milestone celebrations, promotions, fundraisers and going-away parties from a stunning location. Whether you’re celebrating the holidays with your teammates or hosting a private dinner for a key client, being able to do it from your “coworking home” can make all the difference.
5. Improve Quality of Work Life for Remote Workers
While remote work can have many benefits for the worker, we’ve all come to recogize it can have certain drawbacks. For example, the lack of structure and absence of regular coworker interaction can take a toll on the mental health of remote employees, which can affect job satisfaction and performance.
Coworking spaces allow remote workers to enjoy the best benefits of working in an office, including a clean, dedicated workspace, interpersonal interaction and an insulating separation of work and home life. Being away from the distractions of home also usually also lead to greater, more focused productivity – allowing employees more of a work/life balance.
6. Create Schedule Stability
Keeping a structured schedule can be difficult for remote employees, but a coworking space and semi-regular routine can provide that necessary structure. When you have a separate area to conduct your business and eliminate the distractions of home, it’s easier to stick to your schedule and keep productivity high throughout the workday.
