The whole idea of coworking space is to bring together the creative people together and let various innovative ideas collide. But choosing the space where you can work while sharing it with multiple people, from diverse backgrounds with varying careers? Yes, it can seem a little dicey sometimes. From my experience of answering numerous client queries regarding the space, which will eventually result in their choice of workspace, let me give an insight into what people actually look for while searching for a coworking space.
- Community and culture
Culture fit, could be an extremely over used terminology, but trust me it is important. It is important to find a space with a culture that you jive with and with a community of people who inspire you . Co Creating and Co working are beautiful concepts that can only occur if you gel well within the community. Co-working is not just a space to sit and work in, its a community of good people who do great work. The ability to share, lean on, review, learn from each other, grow and be part of an impactful community that enables growth is what it’s all about.
- An inviting space
Never judge a book by its cover? Nope. That’s a little cliche now. A beautiful space with green plants, and motivational quotes can set as the perfect canvas for your work. It is extremely important that the look and feel of the space echoes with you. More than ambience, the functionality should also be important. A co-working space should be designed with the worker firmly in mind: you’ll never have to fight over a plug socket, there is a water cooler, standing desks, magazines dotted around for inspiration, a kitchenette, comfy couches, cornered off nooks for privacy and some soft background music specifically chosen to help you zone in so you can crack on with your work.
