What Services Are Usually Included In A Co-working Space?

Most co-working spaces provide a common set of services to its clients, such as a hot desk or dedicated desk, high-speed Internet connection, and usage of shared office facilities such as a printer, scanner, and copier. Membership in a co-working space also grants access to private meeting areas and conference rooms, as well as a communal kitchen and bathroom facilities. However, in order to stand out in an increasingly competitive sector, many co-working spaces go above and beyond the conventional package.

  • Reception Services

A dedicated receptionist at the front desk makes running a business day-to-day and handling meetings easier and more efficient, as well as assisting with responsibilities such as scheduling meeting spaces, answering phones, and distributing mail.

  • Logo Placement

When sharing an office space with other businesses and freelancers, you typically cannot brand it in the same way that you would a bespoke or conventional office space. To boost exposure and brand identification, many co-working providers are allowing members to post their corporate logos at the front desk.

  • Networking Events

Working in a co-working space surely increases teamwork and knowledge-sharing because you will be exposed to entrepreneurs from a variety of industries. Many co-working businesses today try to establish a collaborative environment by arranging frequent social events that allow their members to network — this is commonly referred to as the “community.”

  • Child-Friendly and Pet-Friendly Facilities

In the world’s best co-working spaces, on-site childcare, private feeding and changing places, and wellness rooms for new mothers are quickly becoming the norm. Family-friendly facilities make it easier for business owners to manage work and personal obligations. Many co-working spaces are now dog-friendly, allowing employees to bring their closest pals to work with them.

  • Wellness Initiatives

An increasing number of flexible offices now have on-site gyms to keep their employees healthy and active, as well as regular wellness services like yoga sessions and massages. Members can also walk, jog, or cycle to work because there are showers and safe bike racks on-site.

  • Breakout Areas

Shared breakout rooms are common in co-working workplaces for rest and relaxation during the workday. Some are going above and beyond, providing high-end leisure rooms complete with pool tables, bean bag chairs, and video games. Others provide a lovely combination of interior and outdoor space, with rooftop terraces and gardens — and biophilia is well-known to boost wellbeing.

Co-working space services help organizations run more efficiently, while clients and businesses benefit from a more balanced and integrated method of working.

TYPES OF COWORKING SPACES

It is vital to note that different types of co-working spaces cater to different people’s demands and expectations.

  • Conventional

This is generally the first thing that comes to mind when people think of co-working spaces. Conventional or open workplaces are often not aimed toward a certain type of organization or firm, but rather focus on creating a shared, open, and collaborative atmosphere in which freelancers and various types of businesses from a variety of different sectors can conduct their business.

  • High-End/Full-Service

These are often of higher quality and offer a broader range of amenities than a traditional workspace, with a greater emphasis on providing elegance and convenience to those who work there. While they may provide more services, this implies that this form of co-working space is frequently significantly more expensive than their ‘conventional’ counterparts.

  • Corporate/Professional

This sort of workspace caters to more corporate clients as opposed to ‘energetic’ start-ups that place a greater focus on cooperation. As a result, they provide a more private and usually quieter setting that may be deemed more professional in the past. They are also a less expensive option to high-end workstations, making them an excellent fit for smaller businesses.

  • Minimal

Affordability is a top priority in minimalist or “bare-bones” co-working spaces. They typically provide only the most basic utilities, such as wifi, electricity, and water, and have very simple and minimal furniture. This is an excellent alternative for people and freelancers who do not require a large number of services.

  • Industry-Specific/ Specialized

These are typically specialty workplaces that only allow organizations or individuals working in a specific industry to work. As a result, these locations tend to cater to certain industry demands. Healthcare professionals, law businesses, and even creatives and artists may have specialized workspaces. This enables and encourages far more inter-company collaboration.

  • Incubators

Incubators are frequently reserved for start-ups and young businesses, therefore they cater to smaller, more cost-conscious businesses. Incubators may provide business advice, cash, and networking opportunities to help enterprises thrive.
