5 Benefits of Shared Office Space

Help your business make an impression, and optimise efficiency.

So, you’re a freelancer or small business owner looking to make a big impact? Just because you’re new on the market, or too small to warrant a large office space, there is no reason why you cannot have the efficiency of an office, make a great impression with clients, and be closer to the central business hub.

Benefits of Shared Office Space

Working from home can be great, but it can also isolate you and make it difficult to connect with likeminded individuals. In addition, the small disturbances such as kids, cleaning, and friends popping by, can sap your day of productive energy, making it all the more difficult to be efficient and productive.

The other side of the coin is that people with small businesses who feel that they have very little choice but to work directly from home, are involuntarily subjected to all those disturbances. While many people enjoy the idea of a home office, others prefer the structure of a work-based office; but they don’t want all the trimmings and expenses that come along with it. So, how do you find a balance between the two?

It’s all right here waiting for you. Co working office space is the ideal solution for freelancers and small business owners because of what it can do for you and your business. Here are a few benefits of working in a co working office space:

Reduce overhead costs

You don’t need a cash outlay for all the latest office technology that makes interacting with your colleagues and clients, and sorting your admin so easy. It’s all included in your co working space pricing. Printing facilities, high-speed internet connection, computerised phone system, reception assistance, coffee lounge, bar and more. You can enjoy access to the office facilities of large corporations, without the high financial demands and maintenance requirements, giving your business a professional air.

Where else could you go for such convenience? Visiting the printer down the road each day, calling your service provider every day to discuss your slow internet, and missing phone calls while you’re out at meetings, will take its toll on your time and client care; avoid all of this.

Connect with like-minded entrepreneurs

Working in isolation prevents you from interacting and honeycombing with people in your industry. The co working space is largely used by creative business people, freelancers and travellers who require long or short-term office space, and is a melting pot of inspiration, energy and business networking. Enjoying the energy of individuals who share the same philosophy as you, can open many doors for your business, and help you expand and grow your client and supplier base.


You are not bound to long-term contracts. Work & Co can accommodate the flexibility of your business such as the growth of your team. You can opt for shared office space, a private office or a hot desk, each at a daily or monthly rate.
