Much to our surprise, researchers have found that employees who share office space actually outperform their peers who work in regular offices. Workers who share office space were rated a six on a seven-point scale placing them at least a full point above regular office workers. Coworking spaces are membership-based workspaces where many different types of jobs are performed in a community setting. Is there something to be learned here for traditional offices? Let’s further analyze what the researchers found.
Coworking spaces members work for a variety of different companies. People who work in a shared office space don’t feel under nearly as much pressure as a traditional office worker. There is little direct competition, if any, internal politics is almost non-existent and they don’t feel the need to put on a work persona. Working among people who are doing different jobs will make a person’s own work seem more meaningful.
It is not uncommon for workers sharing office space to help one another out. Because they are such a diverse group of people, with different skill sets, they can share with other community workers which naturally leads to more harmony in the workplace.
Coworking spaces are almost always accessible 24/7, meaning a person can work when it is most convenient for them. This person can work extra hours if they choose, leave early for a round of golf, attend events that a traditional office worker is often forced to miss, they even work from home if they want to. This kind of flexibility is very appealing to most office workers.
