Coworking in a shared office had its origins among freelancers, entrepreneurs, and the tech industry, but the network has rapidly grown to include small businesses and even satellite offices for large corporations. Venture X®, a global shared workspace franchise leader and member of the award-winning United Franchise Group, offers members a wide range of boutique-style hotel amenities, flexible office options, and a variety of on-site services tailor-made for a new generation of workers.
Working in a modern, updated shared space environment with striking architecture and high-end furniture provides a setting that is conducive to increased productivity and efficiency. The cubicle is the symbol of a traditional workspace in corporate America. When thinking outside of that tiny "box," a new world of opportunity becomes available — the shared office space. Workers have a feeling of liberation: they become more independent, and they are more creative.
Overall, shared workspaces help members feel good about themselves and their ability to perform tasks at a high level. That positivity reinforces performance, generates more interaction, and leads to improved communications. In addition, workers in a shared office have fewer distractions. The Venture X concept has proven to be an asset for self-employed independent contractors as well as company employees.
The beauty of co-working is that your membership brings you into a community of like-minded individuals who share the common goal of accomplishment and business growth. Plus, there's peace of mind knowing that resources and support are easily available.
It can be a vibrant work environment and foster a close-knit synergy that makes it fun to come to work each day. Working from home may seem like a dream, but it has its drawbacks, such as a sense of isolation that can affect your mood, a lack of accountability, and distractions. Interacting with coworkers in a shared office space covers a social need, while promoting a sense of togetherness and accomplishment.
This is a concept that promotes a higher level of accomplishment, and one that continues to appeal to all sectors of business. Shared workspace began as an idea to offer less established professionals an opportunity to be based in a fixed location and to be part of a greater community. Today, that environment has grown into one that embraces more collaboration and flexibility. Its rising popularity is a strong signal that the concept is here to stay.
