Why People Thrive in Coworking Spaces

Did you know that researchers found that employees who belong to a coworking environment were discovered to thrive with reported levels that approach an average of 6 on a 7-point scale? There seems to be something about coworking spaces that employees love. But what makes coworking spaces so effective?

A recent survey from the Harvard Business Review found many reasons why employees thrive in these coworking spaces. Some of those reasons being:

People who use coworking spaces see their work as meaningful – Aside from the type of work they are doing, coming into a collaborative space where there are many different professionals from many different industries provides more opportunity to help each other out or provide a unique skill to other community members.

More job control – Coworking spaces are normally accessible 24/7. People can decide whether to put in a long day when they have a deadline or can decide to take a long break in the middle of the day to go to the gym. They can also choose whether they want to work in a quiet space or in a more collaborative one.

Be a part of a community – Each coworking space has its own vibe. The managers of each space go to great lengths to cultivate a unique experience that meets the needs of their members.

The research is still ongoing but is looking great for coworking spaces. So far, the research suggests that the combination of a well-designed work environment and a well-curated work experience are a part of the reason people who cowork demonstrate higher levels of thriving than their office-based counterparts.
