Share This Post

Earlier this week, we discussed a few of the benefits to coworking versus renting your own office. There are plenty of other benefits to explore, so here is the second part of our “Benefits of Coworking” series.

If you’re looking for an office in the Norman Oklahoma area, sign up for a Free Day Pass with us at VentureSpace to see what it’s like. You’ll get a taste of the coworking experience while spending a day in The Railhouse, our beautiful and historic home. Plus, you’ll get to meet other like-minded people from a wide range of industries. If the massage chair in our lounge is available, you can spend some time relaxing with a free massage!

We already covered how coworking can lead to a healthier work-life balance, save you money, and result in many networking opportunities that could benefit you and your business. Let’s take a look at some additional benefits you’ll enjoy by choosing a coworking space over renting an office on your own.

Increased Productivity

If you’re working remotely, coworking is perfectly optimized to increase your productivity. By choosing a coworking space instead of working from home, you remove all the distractions that a home provides. These distractions can range from kids to pets, chores to other house projects, roommates, and conveniently located places of comfort that might lead to surprise naps throughout the day. Instead of forcing yourself to avoid these distractions through willpower and self-control, set yourself up at a coworking space to remove these interferences from your work environment. This will lead to greater productivity and an overall improvement on timeliness.

At VentureSpace, we designed our office and desk layout with productivity in mind. We wanted to make sure we were accommodating many different types of work. One way we did this is by having groups of desks and multiple meeting rooms to cater to solo workers, small teams, professionals that need to meet with clients or colleagues, and more.

Inspiration, Motivation, and Empowerment

Working alongside other like-minded professionals from other businesses results in a lot of opportunity for sharing knowledge and discussing ideas which could wind up being a huge part of your next phase of growth. You may also wind up finding your next new business venture through the networking you can do at a coworking space.

If you rented an office on your own, the types of conversations you’d find at a coworking space that might inspire and motivate you towards your next big goal may not happen. You miss out on the unique connections and networking opportunities that you’d normally find at a coworking space.

Changing up your work environment isn’t just about working at a place that enables you to work. A good coworking spot will also inspire you to push your business forward, motivate you to reach for new opportunities, and empower you towards new tiers of productivity.

Office Variety

A unique advantage of coworking spaces is providing both private offices and shared ‘open office’ working areas. This allows for workers to choose their environment. If you prefer a private office to reduce distractions and zone in on your workflow, that option is available. If you’re more social and tend to focus when surrounded by other people hard at work, the open office area might be the better choice for you. Or, maybe you like switching up your environment depending on your mood.

No matter what your needs are, coworking spaces tend to offer more variety compared to renting your own office. That’s why they are quickly becoming the go-to choice for remote workers.

More Flexibility

One of the best benefits provided by coworking spaces is flexibility that allows people to work in the office whenever they want. Many coworking spaces offer 24/7 access for certain membership levels, so if you’re the type to work odd hours or during the weekend, you can do so without worry. You’re able to create a schedule that works for you and your team. Plus, coworking helps employers hire people outside of the area where their headquarters is located. Instead of requiring relocation and dealing with the costly hassle of moving a new-hire, employers could simply use a coworking space to provide an office for someone that lives in a different area. It’s much more convenient, and the employee still gets plenty of benefits that an office provides.

What You’ll Find At VentureSpace

Coworking spaces have changed what it means to work in an office. We’re not just here to be a place to commute to throughout the week. We also want to see you grow, both personally and as a company. One of the best messages we could receive from a coworking member is that they need to move to a bigger office due to outgrowing their current one. That’s when we know you’re on the right path and doing well.

We love knowing that we’re bringing people together at VentureSpace. It is so inspiring to step away from the desk for a quick break and find exciting conversations happening in our lounge, or networking happening at a group of desks upstairs, or meetings with new clients. Having the opportunity to see so much happening in one building throughout the work day is incredibly motivating and inspiring.

Make sure you keep the benefits of coworking in mind when looking for your next office. You could stick with a standard office that requires a long-term lease and only has the amenities you provide yourself, or you could try coworking out and see how different an office environment can be. If you’re near Norman in Oklahoma, make sure you stop by to see us at VentureSpace. We’re here Monday through Friday, 9am – 5pm, and we’d love to give you a tour.
