Have you thought about using a co-working office space for your business, and how this can positively benefit your employees? The mental health of your employees is vital, and we know that as employers you aim to do everything that you can to help your employees and make their time at work enjoyable and positive every day.
Using co-working office spaces is on the rise, and more businesses than ever are looking at flexible ways of working with many resorting to a fully working from home model. Working from home is great, however, many people enjoy working in a proper office space and there are many benefits that your employees can gain from being able to work in a co-working space.
Today, our team here at The Bradfield Centre wanted to cover the benefits of using a co-working space and how it can help your employees.
Benefits of Using a Co-working Space for your Employees
Allows for Face to Face Interaction
One of the main benefits of using a co-working space for your business, rather than working fully remotely is face-to-face interaction. Your employees will be able to benefit from speaking to others, whether it's their colleagues that are in on the same days or staff from other businesses. They are able to converse, interact, network and share ideas and meet new people or interact with their colleagues more.
This can increase connection and reduce loneliness, two things that people can suffer from when being based fully from home. Often people can feel isolated working from home, and find it hard to break up work life from home life which is where a co-working space can be really beneficial.
The Use of Facilities
By using a co-working space, your employees get the benefit of being able to use the facilities. Depending on your co-working space of choice, this can include things like wi-fi, kitchen facilities, meeting rooms, and phone booths. This means that your employees don’t have to use their own internet and struggle to find a connection, host meetings virtually, and try to find somewhere quiet to take a call. There may also be added facilities such as coffee shops, showers, and break-out rooms for them to use giving them extra perks to working for you. Added benefits are always a plus.
For many people, working amongst others can increase productivity. By seeing other people hard at work, it can motivate them to do the same. It can also decrease distractions, as when you are at home you can easily get distracted by things and end up working less efficiently than you would in an office. But when in a co-working space, your employees will have higher levels of focus, concentration, and productivity.
