What’s the big deal?
So I get my own desk, my own mini-office alongside countless others. So what if I’m a freelance developer and I sit next to a guy who sells “ninja secrets” on-line?! Or there’s the next Dolly Parton in the far corner working on her new album.
Okay we might not be THAT diverse here in Bozeman….but it’s true…you occupy individual office space with a wide range of professionals in a shared environment. Feelancers, accountants, photographers, non-profits, attorneys, small businesses…all sharing workspace, office space, wifi, and printing under the same roof.
The concept of co-working can be much more powerful than a convenient, individual office area. Though that might draw you in…saving time and saving space are two big perks…there is a bigger advantage. You don’t have to work alone all day! After all, your brother was wrong…you ARE human! You need people!
I recently sat down with one of our members and asked her why she likes Blue Ocean…why she doesn’t work in her home office or rotate coffee shops like one of the wandering professional nomads that are considered “regulars” to our Bozeman baristas. Her answer was simple: “I don’t like being by myself all day…I can come in and be really productive with the added benefit of social interaction.”
The true value in co-working lies in others…and don’t take my word for it. Check out these recent co-working stats from Deskmag:
- 71% of respondents said their creativity had increased since joining
- 62% said their standard of work had improved.
- Countering the common claim that coworking spaces can be distracting, 68% said they were able to focus better
- 64% said they could better complete tasks on time.
