Why do people thrive in coworking spaces? Here are six ways to understand the impact a coworking space can have on your business. 

Sense of community

Members get to be part of a close-knit and productive community. Connecting with others is a strong reason for working in a coworking space. Working from home can be difficult and distracting, and it can be hard to find motivation.

Each coworking space has a vibe, and community managers go the extra mile to ensure they create a great experience. Community managers vary, but their priority is always to act as a connector to grow your business. Who do they know that could help you? What events would benefit you? Don’t be afraid to ask.

As well as being part of a community, there is scope to refer, collaborate with, and gain new business from members in your space. It could be about the people you meet and access to their wider network of contacts. Build relationships and friendships, and the business will follow.

The flexibility of job control

A majority of coworking spaces are open 24/7, allowing workers flexibility they can struggle to find in a more traditional office.

Staff and entrepreneurs have the option to work outside the 9-5, which is especially useful if they have other daytime commitments, as well as allowing people to run global businesses – your team can communicate anywhere in the world, at any time of day.

Make your work style work for you

Many coworking spaces are available to suit your work style, whether you like to work in a quiet office, out on a flexible desk, or hideaway in the café for hours on end. Whatever is most productive for you, there is a workspace to suit.

Coworking spaces are great for larger teams with a variety of personalities, with a set of workspace solutions under one roof. Whether it be a custom-designed suite, a collaboration space, or a meeting room package, Hub can design and customise a space to suit your team.

Potential for collaboration

One day you could be sitting next to an architect, the next, a front-end developer. Diversity in the coworking community is something that makes the format so successful. It allows you to bounce ideas with other people you wouldn’t normally have access to, team up on projects, and broaden your offering to grow your business.

Central CBD locations 

Being in a coworking space allows you to work in high-quality buildings, in great locations. Hub’s locations are all central to the CBD (with suburban fringe locations on the way).

Our workspaces are ideal for ease of access to public transport and car parks, plus located in areas with lots of restaurants, bars and other activities outside of the office.

Working in another city? Access to all Hub locations is included in most memberships – you’ll be able to work from a number of stunning locations, all within close distance of the airport and main train lines.

Hospitality and lifestyle perks 

Coworking spaces come with a wide array of hospitality and lifestyle amenities. Hub’s locations all have a café on-site with barista-made coffee, alongside fully fitted kitchens for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner preparation. Other amenities are available to enhance your workday.

Discover the media studio, parents space, relaxation rooms, exercise studio and more. All Hub members also have access to a number of discounts from leading retailers via our Perkbox membership, with savings of up to 40%.
