While you save up on all the time, money and effort you would have committed to investing in unnecessary office maintenance issues, you also end up drawing much more value than you would have drawn in your own office, around a limited set of people. Further, Start-up co-working spaces contribute to the productivity of the members with their events and and are indeed highly helpful. Co-working spaces are ideal for a growing startup as they not only help save cost but also help in bringing together the creative people together and let the various innovative ideas collide.  Here are the ways in which start-up co-working spaces are actually helpful :

It’s Important to Align Office Space and Office Culture

Office space and office culture, when deeply intertwined, can immensely affect employee attitude towards their company.

A 2014 study entitled ‘The relative benefits of green vs lean office space’ found that while the minimalist look might be the height of fashion, it was making most employees feel pretty low. Just adding some small personalized elements can hugely improve morale and productivity.

There was a time when a cubicle represented not drudgery and sameness, but freedom and individuality. As a reaction to this office environment, Herman Miller originated the first panel-based office plan, then called the “Action Office.” Designers Robert Probst and George Nelson intended the Action Office to be a space where efficiency and productivity could reign, without trampling the needs of the individual.

Why You Should Have Friends at Work

We live in an era when a major chunk of our daily lives is spent at our workplaces. Our workplaces become our home away from home, and our co-workers are the people that we spend most of our waking hours with.

While there are those that argue that personal relationships in the workplace can hamper efficiency and productivity, it is equally true that spending the majority of your day without friendly faces to look at and a mountain of work to deal with can be a recipe for depression and burnout. Such a situation can only lead to employees being miserable at work, and eventually dreading the idea of going to work.
