To explain what is a coworking space, let’s start by imagining a traditional office. As a company:
Now, imagine the opposite. Imagine a place where experts have put their years of experience in designing offices and their understanding of what employees want into a fantastic design. A design that’s created around collaboration, inspiration, and productivity. In a great coworking space, it doesn’t just stop with a better design. The entire interior and all furniture and equipment have already been paid for and installed. You can just walk in and get to work.
Then, especially in enterprise coworking, you have a team that operates the space for you. Anything that relates to the office, you can now just mention to the on-site team and they’ll arrange it for you. And what’s more, you only pay for the space you use. Often you can pay for only 15m2 for a small team, and get up to thousands of square meters of space and facilities to use whenever you want.
It’s no surprise then, that more and more companies are moving into coworking spaces.
A coworking space – and especially enterprise coworking spaces, which are also called flexible offices, like Dreamplex – takes everything you would need in an office, and delivers it at a fixed monthly fee. Think of it like the office version of Spotify: instead of buying individual CD’s or MP3s, you simply pay one fee per month and you can consume as much music as you’d like.
Companies who have run an office before know that maintaining and operating it can be a huge hassle. You have to deal with so many vendors, from the mail service to the maintenance, and from the coffee machine vendor to the cleaning company. On top of that, there’s usually no one to keep the office looking good, let alone to continuously make it exciting to step into it.
At coworking spaces, all of this work is done for you. A company can sign a membership agreement for as little as a few employees all the way up to hundreds of team members. That agreement can be short, or long, although most companies start off with a one year commitment. After all, you’re moving your team here, so you want them to not have to move again soon. From that moment on, anything that has to do with the office, is now the work of the coworking space. The company just needs to focus on their own business, and leave the management of the office to the coworking operator. Simply said, a coworking space allows companies to outsource all their office needs.
The main benefits of coworking space are flexibility, increased productivity, less work for the company, great IT, accommodating a Hybrid work or Work from Anywhere strategy, and a better employee experience.
Traditionally, coworking spaces have been for smaller companies, startups, and freelancers or individuals. But as work has become more distributed, and as companies are all vying for the same talent, there is more pressure on companies to deliver a compelling employee experience.
This has driven more companies to partner with flexible office providers for a premium experience driven by innovative design, hospitality, exciting activities, and a range of great spaces for employees to use. With Dreamplex for example, even within one location employees may have access to over 2000m2 of shared spaces including a coffee shop, lounge, garden terrace, training room, event space, meeting rooms from 4 to 10s of people, and more.
Some of the largest companies in the world, like Standard Chartered, HSBC, Microsoft, Salesforce, and Facebook, are now partnering with coworking providers. For large companies like them, the benefits are clear:
For many companies, a coworking space can save them a lot of money. Delivering an employee and workplace experience at the level of professional operators – who make this their core business, is hard to replicate for companies under 200-300 employees. The amount of people it takes to do this, as well as the resources across IT, facilities management, and more, would be too costly for most companies.
Additionally, having access to meeting rooms and event spaces, but not having to rent them 24/7, like in a traditional lease, save companies a lot as well. Even things like printing systems, a reception, digital access control, and more, would all require upfront and ongoing investments that companies wouldn’t like to make for themselves. In the flexible office model, all these costs get shared by a group of companies.
No wonder that research from DeskWanted shows that coworking spaces can be up to 50% cheaper than workspace in a traditional office. The actual savings will differ based on two things: the size of the company, and the level of employee and workplace experience the company aims to provide.
