Coworking: Fad or The Future?

Written on Wednesday, 05 October 2016

Co-working, hot desking and collaboration are very trendy topics in the serviced office industry at the moment. But is this trend here to stay or disappear like MySpace? Co-working spaces were appealing during the recession due to the increase in freelancers, consultants and sole traders in the market. In a co-working space, the users share resources, e.g. space and facilities, bringing their monthly costs down and making renting workspace affordable.

Many flexible working operators have rushed in to design their own version of communal spaces to match the increase in demand. Unfortunately, due to the delicate balancing act required to create the perfect co-working space to suit all types of workers, few companies are able to pull it off. Not getting enough people through the door makes the space expensive to run and lacks the networking environment clients are looking for. If there are too many users, the space becomes over-crowded and the noise makes the centre unappealing. If balance can be achieved, co-working will be here for the long run.

Orega’s brand of co-working space is based within a private office and is available on 3, 6 or 12 month rolling contracts. Our Virtual Office Packages give members access to a shared working environment with the added benefits of a phone answering service, mail collection and a registered business address to improve their professional image.
