Coworking: A New Way to Work

Little Goblins - Thursday, March 26, 2015

Shared office spaces are becoming a popular option for entrepreneurs and small companies.

Shared office space is hardly a new idea. Traditionally, however, open concept, communal workstations have generally been in the form of cubicles and large work tables. They are spaces that are shared by employees, all of whom work for the same company, a company that typically owns the entire building or floor. These communal spaces are meant to increase workflow, creativity, and collaboration between coworkers all within the same corporation. Now, although these collaborative workstations still exist within most companies, "shared workspace" is taking on a whole new meaning. And, some might say, it's about time.

With the 50th anniversary of the cubicle occurring last year, a refreshed way to think about one's workspace is definitely needed. Coworking, an idea that has been gaining momentum over the past decade, enables entrepreneurs, small companies, and/or travelling business people to share a workspace with other people who are not affiliated with their company or work. It is a convenient, and much more affordable, way to rent out office space in the city. Most shared coworking spaces also offer renters access to boardrooms, kitchens and other facilities associated with traditional office spaces.

With such a large population of entrepreneurs in Vancouver, coworking is a great option to consider as an office space. Watch the below video to gain a better understanding of this emerging trend.
