The benefits to business of co-working

According to The Co-working Manifesto, co-working spaces are places where ‘connected individuals and small businesses [create] an economy of innovation and creativity in communities and worldwide. Envision[ing] a new economic engine composed of collaboration and community, in contrast to the silos and secrecy of the 19th/20th century economy.’


In short, people from across the business world work together in one space to give them the structure and professionalism they can’t achieve at home.

Camaraderie is a key by-product of co-working, and it’s this community spirit that leads to increased productivity and innovation. Everyone has a different skillset and they help each other achieve more. Better still, there’s none of the usual office politics found in larger company work spaces.
