For Remote Workers & Employers

The remote work trend is exploding, and with good reason. Technology has made remote work more possible than ever, and younger generations are placing higher value on work-life balance and flexibility in their careers. Employers are benefiting too, allowing them to attract the best talent, remain nimble, and realize significant economic advantages.

Despite all this, both employees and employers have reservations about shifting the workplace into the home. And for this, among many other reasons, Coworking Spaces have emerged to provide the perfect alternative.

By allowing employees to work from Coworking Spaces near their homes, employers can still materially cut the budgets and administrative burden of facilities management, scale up and down easily, and potentially see significant productivity gains from their remote team members. Remote workers are able to experience the flexibility of the home office without the distractions and other downsides, avoid expensive and unpleasant commutes, and still have access to modern business amenities and enjoy a social component in their work.

The Remote Work Trend

If More People Could Work Remotely, the US Economy Could Gain Trillions

In 2019, the case for flexible work is clear, and companies are scrambling to keep up with employee demand for it. Many companies have already implemented more flexible working practices: More than a quarter of companies surveyed in a recent study offered the option of full-time telecommuting, while over two-thirds of them allowed it as needed; about 57% of companies even encouraged employees to set their own hours within core business hours….The strongest argument for flexible work arrangements may be an economic one, according to a new study by the Centre for Economics and Business Research and software company Citrix.

  • Serving temporary or contract employees
  • Promoting more face-to-face collaboration
  • Accommodating business travelers with convenient drop-in options
  • Reducing admin and support staff costs
  • Improving speed-to-market for time-sensitive space requirements

The future is here. Compared with five years ago, 40 percent more companies are now offering flexible work arrangements as the demand for remote and flexible arrangements rise in unprecedented numbers. Firms not jumping on the bandwagon will be at a significant disadvantage as younger generations seek out flexible work options.
