The business centre industry is booming right now. The ever-increasing competition between business centres is a good thing for both existing businessmen and new entrepreneurs. This is because the competition is forcing the business centres to provide better office spaces than their competitors or get left behind. The services that come with these office spaces are also getting better and better. One of the most popular types of office spaces provided by the business centers right now is the coworking office spaces. Here are some of the best amenities and facilities you can expect from all coworking spaces.
Coworking office spaces are most attractive to new entrepreneurs and existing small businesses as well. However, when coworking office spaces were first introduced in the business world, they were only seen as a short-term solution. As a result, visionaries tended to avoid these spaces when selecting their base of operation.
Now that business centres are presenting these coworking office spaces with proper office furniture and office facilities, these have become a staple choice for entrepreneurs big and small. However, furniture and facilities are not the only reason these office spaces are so popular nowadays. Let us look into the reasons why coworking office spaces are so popular among entrepreneurs all of a sudden.
Prime Business Districts
Coworking office spaces are provided by business centres, and these business centres are located in buzzing business districts. That means that when you choose a coworking office space for your business, you effectively get an office space in the heart of a business district. But what is the benefit of setting up your base of operations in a business district?
For starters, business districts have state-of-the-art transportation facilities that will make it easier for your employees and business associates to get to and from your office. There is also the prestige factor related to having an office space in a popular business district.
Before coworking spaces, entrepreneurs and small businesses could not even think about getting an office space in business districts. This is because other types of office spaces in popular business districts are very expensive. Businesses either needed a healthy cash flow or a huge upfront capital investment to get office space in a prestigious business district.
Coworking spaces are much more affordable and cost-effective as well. When we say cost-effective, we mean that you will be paying for what you are using only. Your money will not be wasted on any empty space you are not occupying or any office equipment that you are not using.
Anyone who runs an office space, as well as a business, will agree that operational tasks are a big headache that distracts you from your business. When you are running an office space, you get less time to focus on other important aspects of your business.
Since the business centre, you are renting from takes the responsibility of managing and maintaining the office spaces. You will be free to improve your product or service.
When you lease or buy a permanent office space, you are stuck with the place even if your plans change suddenly. As the COVID-19 pandemic has proven, long-term plans as certain risks associated with them.
Since you can rent coworking spaces monthly, weekly, daily, or even hourly. You can adjust according to your plans. If you need to change locations or close shop for any reason whatsoever, you can easily do so without facing any serious backlash. Flexible contracts are one of the most attractive benefits of the coworking space.
If your business kicks off and you need to hire more helping hands to keep up with the demand, you can easily accommodate more employees with coworking spaces. On the other hand, if you plan to lease more permanent spaces, then you need that huge upfront capital investment. You could simply rent more coworking spaces for a much smaller cash flow requirement. You could also rent a coworking space on the other side of the city or in another city completely just as easily.
The same is true when downscaling your business. You will be stuck with a lot of empty space if you are leasing a permanent space. On the other hand, you can simply rent a smaller portion of the coworking office space and significantly cut down your expenses.
A lot of other talented individuals and firms will be sharing the coworking spaces with you. This provides a wide array of opportunities for your business. Some businesses can benefit more from this than others. For example, if you are own a marketing agency and find yourself in a dire need of a graphics designer. You might find a freelancer right next to you. Similarly, you might find your next client here.
The work environment of these coworking spaces is also very suitable for businesses. Business centres are always trying to improve the ambiance of their coworking spaces to make theirs more attractive than their competitor’s. You will also find meeting rooms, private discussion rooms, and much more to suit your specific needs. And the best thing is that you only pay for what you use.
As we have mentioned at the start, you do not need to worry about furniture, office equipment, and many other things when moving into a coworking space. Other appliances like coffee machines, microwaves, refrigerators, etc. are also provided by the business centres.
Here are some of the amenities and facilities you can expect from all coworking office spaces:
- Desks and chairs.
- Printer, scanner, and copy machine.
- Kitchen area with all the necessary kitchen appliances.
- Wi-Fi router with high-speed internet connection.
- Meeting and conference rooms.
- Different leisure equipment like darts, table tennis, pool, etc. depending on the business centre.
Other than these different business centres will include different facilities and amenities to help their coworking office space stand out. And again, you will only need to pay for what you are using.
