Is Co-working a Valid Alternative to the Traditional Office? | 580 Executive CenterIn the past, working remotely seemed like an option that was only available for a select few industries. As technology improved and changed the way that everyone does business, working remotely became an option for more and more people. Now, many people who worked in a traditional office in the past have moved to a co-working space, working from home, or a combination of the two. Co-working is a valid alternative to the traditional office for many types of business owners and employees.

Professional space to work

A co-working space can provide you with a professional space to work. You will have access to a desk or table in a place designed for individual and focused work. In fact, you may find that you focus much better in a co-working space because there are less opportunities for co-workers to interrupt you while working. You will also find that you have access to a high-quality internet connection in a co-working space. If you can do the majority of your job as long as you have a quiet place to focus and a reliable internet connection then co-working is a valid alternative to the traditional office for you.


Provides significant cost savings

Using a co-working space instead of a traditional office can provide you with significant cost savings. Furnishing an office and paying for all of the related monthly costs can be very expensive. In addition, traditional office spaces often require a three plus year commitment. Before you commit to spending that amount of money, consider using a co-working space. It is furnished and all of the related costs are already included in the monthly price that you pay. You can enjoy lower overhead and allocate those funds to other areas of your business.


Allows for more flexibility

Co-working is a more flexible alternative to the traditional office. You have access to the space for extended hours and are not bound to going in or leaving at a certain time. With co-working you can set your own hours based off of your needs and preferences instead of having to maintain the same hours as your boss or co-workers in a traditional office setting.


Conference rooms and executive suites available as needed

As an added bonus, you can also use conference rooms and rent out executive suites for meetings at the best co-working spaces. Having these spaces available means that you can still meet with clients in a professional environment as needed. And, you can have team meetings or work sessions in one of the available conference rooms.

Co-working spaces are a great alternative to the traditional office because they can provide you with everything you need in an office for less cost while providing more flexibility. 580 Exec offers all of the elements listed above plus much more.
