3 Ways Coworking Helps Motivate Employees

  There are many benefits to working in a coworking space. But did you know that those who belong to a coworking environment tend to thrive more than their traditional office counterparts? In fact, one study shows that those who work in a shared space report levels of thriving that average out to be about a 6 on a 7 point scale, which at least one point higher than the average employee is working in the typical office. So, what is the secret to coworking spaces that helps people thrive? Below we discuss 3 ways that coworking motivates employees to accomplish their goals:
  1. People who use coworking space have more control of their job.
Many coworking spaces offer hours that extend beyond the traditional 9-5. This means that workers can decide to put in an entire day in order to finish a project or meet a deadline, or they can decide to take a break in between tasks to grab a coffee or head to the gym. Whereas a traditional office environment does not typically allow for this flexibility, a coworking space allows people to feel more in control of their time, and thus, more able to make effective use of it.
  1. Those who work from a coworking office see their work as meaningful.
Those who work in coworking spaces do not have the same type of pressures as those who work in a traditional office setting. Since coworking spaces are made up of people from diverse industries, there is no pressure to fit into a certain persona or succumb to any unproductive inner-office competition. This allows for a strong community to form, making it easier for those working in the same shared space to collaborate and exchange ideas.
  1. Coworking environments establish productive communities.
Though many people who choose to work in a coworking space may very well have the option to work from a home office for free, they still choose to work in the shared space because each coworking environment offers a powerful sense of community. Though each coworking space is unique, the managers of the office work to establish a vibe that is conducive to promoting productivity that allows for collaboration.
