Coworking Trends to Watch Out for in 2017

2017 is here and it has brought along a considerable increase in coworking spaces. Shared office spaces are taking over traditional office spaces and it’s no secret that they’re doing a much better job. With traditional office space rent skyrocketing and lease tenures being too long, it comes as no surprise that more and more companies are switching to coworking spaces.

A number of changes can be seen happening in 2017. Night coworking is about to be a huge hit in India. With companies catering to international clients, the need to work nights is on the rise. Not a lot of coworking spaces are offering night coworking options. But with the rising demand, the supply will also definitely increase. Places like Socials that turn into pubs at night would probably not be able to offer night coworking. You can’t really have a client call while there’s Hey Mama playing in the back. Other spaces have a great window for expanding their services. Most of the day coworkers leave by 9pm -10pm. Post that, the place can surely turn into a night coworking space.

Corporate companies are also opting for coworking spaces when looking for a native office space. A good example would be a company in Delhi that’s looking to open a branch in Mumbai. Now imagine them only having a handful of people working, around 10-12 people. Why would they opt for a 3 year contract with exceptionally high rent prices? For a new branch being tested out, a better option would be a coworking space with a short contract. They can even have a simple 6 month contract at a shared office space that offers a private room. The rent would only be a few thousands and they can always choose to opt out when they want with a short notice period.

Not only corporates, freelancers are all over coworking spaces like ants on sugar. Almost every organization has freelancers working for them, be it a content writer, graphic designer, social media handler, anything. All these freelancers need a place to work out that is within their budget and gives them a professional feel to get in the mood to work. Most of the coworking spaces are taken up by freelancers, some of whom are even working full-time.

Technology is playing a key role in coworking spaces. Apart from high speed internet, other facilities that will help improve user experience at such places will also have to be implemented. Shared office spaces are focusing on needs that are not being currently met and trying to provide a solution for better services.

Check out their quirky office space with unique facilities for a great coworking experience.
