Co-space working – what to look for and how to thrive

Wednesday Jun 15, 2022

With the pandemic causing a rise in remote working and prompting many to explore starting their own business or going freelance, the demand for co-space working spots has naturally increased.

A co-working space is an environment where professionals from different companies come together to work and make use of various equipment and facilities.

Co-space working is a great alternative for freelancers who want a change of scene from working at home or in noisy coffee shops, or for small businesses who aren’t yet ready for the expense of renting a private office space.

Remote workers can use them as places where they can get together and work with others from within their own company, while freelancers and SME owners can forge new collections and collaborate with other professionals.

However, when choosing a co-working space, it’s important to think about what matters for your work and your business. If you’re looking for a space for a small to medium-sized team, then you might look for places that offer flexible rentable offices as well as individual desks. Alternatively, you might also want to choose a space that is designed for your particular industry. For instance, Yas Creative Hub is specifically designed for those working in media, entertainment and gaming looking for creative workspaces.

It’s also a good idea to consider things like how long it will take to commute to your co-working space, what the parking situation is, and if there are many places to eat or socialise with your new co-working buddies nearby.
