The co-working hub has come a long way since its inception in the early 2000s. Prompted by a desire for flexibility and collaboration transcending one’s organisational community, co-working saw a dramatic rise in popularity throughout the 2010s. And then, the COVID-19 pandemic hit, triggering hitherto unimaginable changes in nearly all spheres of work and life. With life hobbling back to familiar routines, co-working offices are once again beginning to attract businesses.
Three Key Forces Driving the Popularity of Co-working
The trend of co-working was adversely affected by the pandemic, not least on account of a collective phobia about public spaces. However, with flexible and hybrid arrangements emerging as the centrepiece of the pandemic working experience, the co-working model appears set to resume once again. Here are three significant forces driving the popularity of co-working in post-pandemic times:
- Businesses in a State of Flux: Businesses are becoming more complex. It is thus becoming difficult for one central office setting to meet their shifting needs.
- Rise of the Gig Economy: With an increase in the number of freelancers, entrepreneurs, and independent contractors, the demand for a flexible workspace and good community is growing.
- Need for Flexibility in Work Life: The pandemic and resultant lockdowns reshaped attitudes with regard to traditional workspaces, driving home the need for greater autonomy, adaptability, and flexibility.
