Coworking is becoming ever more popular due to its numerous benefits. For many people in charge of locating and identifying office space, coworking presents new opportunities for all involved. Although every company’s needs are different, this article provides a standard checklist to help guide the decision-making process.

 

A Community Is As Important As The Building Itself

Coworking spaces attract and appeal to a wide range of entrepreneurs who bring different skill sets and knowledge to the table. This is one of the main advantages of working in a coworking space. By finding the perfect community, you will be able to share ideas and solutions to problems.

When searching for an office space, many people focus on facilities or location but do not realize the unexpected benefits that can come from being a part of a great community. A friendly and helpful atmosphere will encourage employees to attend work daily, share experiences, and make new friendships. As a freelancer or solopreneur, sometimes it can be all too easy to skip a day’s work here or there. Being part of a community will help to prevent that and build a sense of camaraderie. You will also be collaborating with like-minded individuals who will understand the trials and tribulations you are facing.

 

The Cost Of Your Workspace

The cost of coworking space can vary drastically, so it is important to determine which factors are the most relevant to your situation. Perhaps you want to save money and don’t mind a longer commute, or maybe the view and aesthetic of the building are worth paying the extra cost. There tends to be a lot of flexibility in pricing, with some companies even offering hourly, or half day rates. Take some time to evaluate your preferred requirements before committing yourself to any long-term contracts.

 

Location

Location is not necessarily about the view or being in the center of town. Consider other aspects, such as where your industry contacts are located. It may be incredibly beneficial for you to rent an incredible office space in the heart of the financial district if your business targets that audience.

 

A Positive Environment

Being an entrepreneur can be lonely, challenging, and frustrating in equal measure. Therefore, it is important to work in a positive atmosphere with likeminded professionals. People are a product of those that they surround themselves with. That is why it is essential to assess and evaluate the people already working in a given coworking space. Visit the premises on some occasions, interact with the people and try to get a sense of the attitude they bring to the table. Maybe you think you are immune to peer pressure, but when everyone wants to take off early every Friday for a beer, it becomes all too easy to be dragged along and distracted. Look for motivated, dynamic, and enthusiastic people who are determined to be successful and carry out this mindset within their work environments. This will create a personal incentive for you to follow suit.  

 

Expansion And Event Potential

Finally, you must consider various amenities that your proposed venue can offer. Make sure that you consider your company’s goals when choosing an office space. If you are planning on growing, allow yourself room for that. Imagine that you want to host a large presentation. Does the location offer that possibility? Again, this might not seem important when you are initially setting up your business, but attention to detail is at the core of all successful businesses.

 

The venue and location of your office space is a critical component in establishing the foundation of your company and it can influence several factors such as cost, environment, productivity, community, and more. It is important to invest time in finding the right location based on your needs and the above factors, rather than signing up to the first viable property that you see. At Level Office, we offer a broad range of coworking memberships for different types of needs, and we are convinced that we can offer an ideal coworking solution that is in line with your established requirements.
