Importance of Co-working to Corporates
Basically, co-working means “getting more work done” to corporates.
In a Fast Company article, it said that big-time corporations like Amazon, Twitter, Google, and half of the Fortune 500 offer their staff temporary spaces (Regus) to hold meetings or to get work done on the road. According to Regus CEO Mark Dixon, it is because “The future of work should not be dictated by space or place, but by the individual and the tasks that he or she has to deliver… Many employees are now measured by output and productivity, and not just 40 hours spent sitting at a desk.”
Some of the workers nowadays have to go out of the office to attend client meetings and/or industry events. It would be much more efficient and beneficial for corporates to partner with or have a coworking space to work than traveling back to the office, especially if the location of the meeting place is far away. In this case, it will allow employees to maximize and utilize the use of coworking spaces while they are on the go. In addition, having an option of easy access to a coworking space makes it more convenient for workers to use their extra time to complete other tasks while they’re out of the office.
